Afternoon All,

Really please as finished off the smoker/light controller i've been working on.
it works with any smoker that has a fan.
theres three version avaible, but all versions have the same light functions,
one switch - on /off (can change to a proportional to work with a water pump)
Three position Swich, controlls two light circuts or anything.
Oil heater,
will turn the fan and heater on only when required. saves on Battery and to replicate a diessel engine.
Water vapor system,
able to turn off/on the power to the system remotely,
Diesel engine, will power the fan 100% and the start and the slow the fan down till model is just about to move off.
Steam Engine - Fan at idle is about 20% so always push the smoke up but then it will encrease with throttle input.
the best thing i think is that any thing can be changed via the arduino.

Will be make a few so if any one interest in one, please PM me.

this is one i've just made for a friend that use the Oil heater
and mine using the water vapor system
