looking for well controlled heating element. Answered
I have a few small projects in mind that have come to a standstill because I lack one piece. What I would like to get my hands on are small heating elements capable of temps between 80-400 degrees F that are as accurate as possible, preferably within two degrees.
I have tried researching this online, but after browsing for an hour I was unable to come up with anything that would suit my needs. I have considered buying a digital heat gun, but I can't find reliable info on how accurate they are and what range they have.
I don't want anyone to think I am trying to build bombs or anything like that so here are two of the applications I had in mind.
The first is my truck. From what I understand those 'super chips' people buy to override the computer and add power typically change the air/fuel ratio. That can be done by manipulating the perceived temperature of the air entering the intake. My idea is to create a small housing around the airbox thermostat and digitally manipulate the termp in order to manipulate the A/F ratio.
My second idea is...well...best not discussed openly, but I assure you it has nothing to do with the creation of weapons of any kind.
