im new to this forum, a friend of mine explained the arduino would be to tool of choice for my project but im struggling to understand what i need to type in order to make this work.. clearly not a programmer - im a chef.
so, long story short, i want to make salami.
i have an old fridge, a humidifier, an exhaust fan, a 100w light, a LCD arduino control panel and the ardiuno. i think i need to get a switch board too, but im not too sure.
the steps are as follows.
day1 24C @ 95% Humidity
day2 22C @ 90% Humidity
day3 20C @ 85% Humidity
day4 18C @ 80% Humidity
day5 16C @ 80% Humidity
Day6 14C @ 75% Humidity
Day7 12C @ 75% Humidity
to store/age 10-12C @ 75% Humidity
so i need a the program to be able to;
switch the hymidifier on/off comparible to readings
switch the fridge on if needed cooling / light on if not cool enough
turn the exhaust on every 4 hours for 30secs to evacuate the chamber of any fermentation gasses.
i dont mind if i use the control panel to change the peramiters daily for the 7 day period because some thicker sausage might take longer and thinner less time. but i do need, lets say if i set it to 18C @ 80% to work its magic and get it to the appropriate temp/humidity. if its 35C outside it will cool. if its 5C outside it will heat using the 100w light..
then also automatically the exhaust draws the air out every 4 hours...
any help will be rewarded with salami and coppacollo....
