PID Control Thermocouple

Hey Guys,

I am just wondering if any of you have worked on PID control of a thermocouple using Photon. I am working on something and would love to see your code! I have no experience in PID, so it’s a bit difficult for me to understand.

@skasat, you don’t PID a thermocouple! You PID the temperature measured by a thermocouple. If you Google “arduino PID” you will see a very mature PID library that can be used for Particle devices. The question is what is the temperature control element? Is is on/off like a simple heater or is it more sophisticated like a analog voltage control? Both can be done but both require a different approach to how the control is done.

Have you read this?
