RefloLeo is an integrated toaster oven controller that is designed for the hobbyist or electronics designer who needs to create a small quantity of electronics with surface mount components. This is perfect for prototyping work or small volume production with professional look and performance. This oven controller will regulate the internal temperature of the oven according to a set heating profile that best suits the components being baked. This makes it super easy to reliably bake your own PCB designs at home. Just put your board that is ready to bake in the oven, turn on RefloLeo, select your desired baking profile and wait just a few minutes for RefloLeo to bake your board for you. After a short cool down time, you are ready to remove your completed board from the oven that is ready for use in your project. RefloLeo takes care of the multi-stage timing, pre-heating, heat soaking, peaking and cool down for you.
RefloLeo is simple and friendly to program. It is Arduino compatible by emulating an Arduino Leonardo and can be programmed just as easily. The firmware that comes with RefloLeo is available for free, including the source code, and you can program additional features easily if you would like. Uploading your own custom firmware is easy by using the Arduino integrated development environment and uploading the new firmware over USB. It is easy for the beginner but has advanced options available too. This is a fully integrated design that does not require an external Arduino circuit board to operate.
Reflow profiles are stored as text files using the simple instruction set and saved on a standard SD memory card. RefloLeo will read from this text file and execute its instructions to follow the profile you have specified. Up to 255 different reflow profiles can be saved, selected from the on-screen menu and used to accommodate any job.
This is for RefloLeo only. You will need to provide your own toaster oven, external relay, K-type thermocouple, SD memory card, Micro-USB cable and USB power supply.
