The STEVAL-IHT001V2 thermostat kit provides a robust and low-cost ST solution (microcontroller and AC switches) to control refrigerators, freezers or fridge/freezer combinations.
Basic, defrost, and air circulation versions are configurable in order to address the low-end and medium-end cooling appliances market. It allows the control of a single-phase induction motor and a light bulb, and optionally, a defrost resistor and a fan, working on 220/240 VRMS, 50/60 Hz mains voltage. The thermostat kit is operational with 100/120 V RMS 50/60 Hz but the supply capacitor value must be modified.
The board can operate in an ambient temperature range from 0 °C to 60 °C.
The exact maximum temperature depends on the power of the loads. For demonstrative purposes a graphic user interface (GUI) has been developed.
The connection between the PC and STM8S microcontroller, the MCU performing thermostat regulation, is achieved through a USB bus.
As the STM8S is a low-cost MCU without an embedded USB peripheral, an additional MCU (STM32) has been used as a bridge between the PC and STM8S MCU, for demonstrative purposes only.
