digital temperature/fan-control with LCD for PC, selfmade

It is done, a final version of a guidance how to built up this fan/temperatue-control is available now
for the Download. (press button "Auf gehts" to start download)
Here you can find some pictures and a detailed desription in english

http://www.keiang.de/modules/PCcool/DCP_1469.jpg
http://www.keiang.de/modules/PCcool/PIC00269.JPG
http://www.keiang.de/modules/Album/i...g/PIC00324.JPG

the main characteristics in the overview:

- Micro-controller digitally regulated fan/temperature-control, regulation works 100% independently of the operating system (e.g. Windows...)
- with up to 8 sensors the temperatures of the PC's are monitored and the speed of the fans are adapted automatically
- very exact temperature sensors with a accuracy of 0,1°C (DS1820)
- several safety functions protect against the overheating of the computer hardware
- low-loss control of the fans by pulse-width-modulation (PWM), saves energy and produces no additional heat
- the fans can be regulated within a range of 40% to 100%
- The fan's speed is also shown in PWM mode, over the whole work area
- USB-interface
- suitable also for watercooling
- display of all values on LCD 1*20/2*20/4*20 (temperatures, fan's "rpm", alarm status...)
- simple operation over only 2 keys
- very flexible configuration possible (alarm temperatures, sensor-fan config, hysteresis...)
- storage of all settings in eeprom

Sorry for the bad english, i will try to improve the translation but it is a little bit hard for me. Maybe someone can help me?

You can have a ready make kit for 40€. This kit contains all nessesary parts to build such a regulation (without LCD, without temp. sensors !)
If you like you can also get the LCD and sensors from me. Simply send me a mail to platine@keiang.de !

A guide in english will soon follow. (up to now only in german available)

Is this your own board layout, Keiang, or did you have someone else do it? I like the layout of your power and ground planes.

A "small" update of the project:

1.) Instead of a normal Text-LCDs (HD44780 etc.) also a graphics LCD can be connected now, with that some more information can be indicated at the same time. I used a GLCD with the controller "T6963C" (240 * 64 pixel) here.

Here is a short video: Video of the GLCD (press button "Auf gehts" to start download)
Description of the GLCD: Regulation with GLCD

http://www.keiang.de/Download/Forum/Bilder/PIC01205.JPG




2.) The software for Windows is now also almost ready. At this time all dates of the regulation can be indicated and adapted (temperature-, fan-, regulation dates as well as all configuration data: temperature limits, sensor-fan config, etc.).
As next a small interface comes for the software "Samurize" www.samurize.com included, with that everyone can represent the dates graphical likes he want to.
You find a precise description and even further information here: Windows Software

http://www.keiang.de/modules/PCcool/software_1.1_1.GIF

The most important enlargement is to be let indicate all dates in a diagram. With that one gets a very good overlooks about the regulation behavior and with that whether all attitudes are correct.
The diagram can be stored if required with a right click as a graphics file.

http://www.keiang.de/modules/PCcool/...re_1.1_4_2.GIF





3.) With this enlargement bigger fans (>2W) or several can be connected at the same time. in total 6 fans with each 10 W can be connected.

Nice work - how much effort did it require in order to move from a text based LCD to the T6963C based module?
