    Hello i want to build power controlled circuit to control ceramic heat plate plate are 220-230v 450w.

    i want make it control it LCD temp or simple just to be able adjust power to get different temp outputs

    based on timer ON-OFF every 10 or so secs

    Thanks

    I would use a solid-state relay rated for 240V, 3A or greater to control the heat plate. They typically require only 10-15mA at low voltage to turn on and and are thus easily controlled by other circuitry.

    Are you asking for help?

    If so, the first step would be to draw out a schematic and/or provide pictures, so that the experts here can tell what you have, and then clearly describe how you want to change it and why.

    Ebay has a lot of temperature control modules fairly cheap, your 450W load should not be a problem.
