    I was wondering ... did any of you did any thing or may be just for the heck of it a 220VAC heat controller.

    Like using a PIC12F629 or 675 and a pot together with a triac .

    A simple open loop one ..looking for a quick getaway one here.
    I have those components and heater too....

    Just need a code for it u know.....
    tried googling but for the PIC I have, nothing came up.

    I've done induction motor control at 110/220. A resistive heater is *easy* compared to that!

    Edit: let me rephrase that: "Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy" as my daughter would say...

    I know..but I need it to be feasible.

    Feasible? No. I do nothing feasible. Everything I do is infeasible!

    I used a Honeywell digital thermostat and relay to control my forced air kerosine shop heater. Not sure that's what you want though.

    I'm looking for a PIC code. A simple one at that..

    Since my HDD crashed I have not been able to locate all of my files. I did have a PIC 12F629 Dremel controller schema and code on the drive, I found it from the net.

    Some guy did it and he posted everything...can't seem to find it now

    I can help you with the *how*, but I cannot write your code for you. Sorry!

    If you are going "open loop" with a resistive heater, with no temperature sensing, just use a lamp dimmer.

    I don't have a freakin lamp dimmer.

    What I have is.
    A PIC
    TRIAC,
    ALL THE COMPONENTS.

    and a lotta adrenaline. :D
