Abstract

A micro-controller based water heater allows consumers to efficiently control domestic water heating system. Hardware and software designs and construction of the controller are done in the laboratory. The controller is interfaced with a real time digital watch, a temperature sensor and a keypad. In this design, a real time emulator driven by software controls a water heater using a micro-controller.
Keywords. Micro-controller, geyser, keypad, interface, design, construction.
