Project Cheese Fridge
« on: September 03, 2017, 05:26:02 PM »
Hello dear friends, I wanted to present my project of cheese fridge, I use a digital thermostat MH1210 instead of the original thermostat for temperature and an MH13001 for moisture, I made the wooden shelves, added 2 PC fan for circulating air and humidity, while down a mini humidifier donuts and to finish a thermometer hygrometer with remote probe to monitor from outside, I put the temperature sensor in a box with the aluminum inside and the moisture sensor in a larger well ventilated box, I hope to have a cave at 54 ° F and 80% humidity.The advice, information, comments and opinion to experiment are welcome (I am amateur)
Price MH1210A = 13 € (you can find cheaper) MH13001 = 15 € (I found this product on sale normally it costs between 18 and 25 €) Socket and connector... 10 € The rest recovery.
This is my adventure, I hope given an idea for future cheesemakers, thank you and good cheese

Hello, I wanted to share the final result, I am satisfied with the result despite the start, for fans I use a timer set for 15 minutes ventilation every 2 hours, I wonder if I could use the fans with the MH13001 in inserting a dual socket, 1 humidifier (with 220V adapter to 5V dc and 2 fans with 220V to 12V adapter?) To have the fans running when the humidifier is active, for test I have set the humidity to 65 % with 5% margin and a protection of 5 minutes, I do not know the necessary amount of water by setting to 85%. Well we will see all this, anyway for the price and those who likes to tinker it's worth a try , I am amateur you can do better and given me safety tips or other, thank you for reading, cordially.

Thank you very much dear Duntov for your comment and the cheese, I noticed that the bottom fan is too wet, I will mount it from a floor and protect the dominoes in mini boxes to insulate from the moisture. Tomorrow I will settle this and go to the farmer's attack for 30 liters of raw milk. It's gone for the Gouda ... thank you for the motivation, a cheese for the respect to Duntov, good continuation.

Hello, little info for those who would like this launched like me in the management of temperature and humidity, if you used a moisture controller type MH13001 or Wilhi ... (with relay output supporting 250V AC 10 Amp) plugged a double socket on the RH

controller plug and inserted a 220V socket to 5V USB for the humidifier and a 220V to 12V socket for the 2 fans. When the humidifier is activated the ventilos are activated which facilitates homogeneity in the fridge. Cordially.
