In this article I am going to introduce my newly designed 30amp home-automation PCB.
I have also designed lot other home-automation PCBs, like 2 node , 4 node and 8 node home-automation PCBs.
These PCBs are fully tested and works very well These PCBs are best for home-automation system, But these PCBs could handle only Upto 10 amp load, So we can only use this PCBs for small load appliances like light bulb, televisions which consume less power,
But if we want to automate heavy load appliances like air conditioners, washing machines, geyser then in that case , we couldn't connect to these PCBs.
These PCBs will not handle such heavy load and eventually the relay will burn out.
So to solve this problem, I have design brand new home-automation PCB which can easily handle Upto 30amp load.
And most of the heavy load appliances that we used in our homes consumes current under 30 amp, So this PCBs is perfect for those appliances.
This PCB is compatible with all the popular IOT platform like BLYNK, ESP-RAINMAKER.
In this way we can easily integrate this PCB with Alexa and google assistant.
And apart from this , we can also give manual input to this PCB and
also we can connect via Bluetooth to control the appliances from smartphone application in local area network.
And the size of this PCB is very small. and can easily fits inside the electrical switch board.
And there is two onboards LEDs , which we can use in many ways, like for testing code, WIFI indicator.
This is the Schematic of PCBs. If you want Your own custom designed PCBs, Then you can download this schematic.
After making the Schematic, Convert it into PCB, Arrange and place all the components in desirable places, Once the layout is ready route the wiring and complete the design of PCB.
After The completion of PCB design, You need to download three files which will required during PCB order. These files are
Ordering the PCBs at JLCPCB.
This project is sponsored by JLCPCB. JLCPCB is a full feature Printed Circuit Board manufacturing service.
Turn your DIY breadboard circuits into professional PCBs– get 10 boards for approximately $5 + shipping (which will vary depending on your country).
Once you have your Gerber files, you can order the PCB. Follow the next steps.
After uploading the zip file, you’ll see a success message at the bottom if the file is successfully uploaded. You can review the PCB in the Gerber viewer to make sure everything is good.
JLCPCB can grab all the PCB details and automatically fills them for you.
Select the PCB quantity and color masking of PCB by your self. I am selecting white color.
Scroll down below and select for PCB assembly.
Here you have to select on which Side you want to PCB assembly top side or bottom side or on both side. In my case I want only on top sides. After that click on confirm button.
For PCB assembly we need two more files, One is BOM that is bill of material and the second one is CPL that is pick and place file, Upload these two files one by one.
After that click on next button.
All the components were shown here that are to be assembled.
In case if you want to not assemble any particular component then you can de-select that components.
After checking all the components click on next button.
Here you will see a computer version of components placement which seems not accurate. This is only for reference purpose.
Now click on save to cart to complete your order.
After seven days, PCBs arrived at my place. As usual the quality of PCB is very premium, and the Components are soldered very well.
Traces are perfect,...
