The two main projects are a Tank Controller (aka a phStat unit) and an Alkalinity Titrator. Each project has a few supporting projects.
Aquarium control unit for regulate tank pH through CO2 addition and temperature.
An apparatus to determine total alkalinity in sea water using an open-cell titration.
The initial source code and hardware was created by Kirt Onthank. Since then others have contributed to the project, here are a few highlights from recent student lead efforts.
- The Tank Controller’s micro controller was refactored for testing by Eliam Calvo and Wesley Duerksen in 2021.
- The Alkalinity Titrator’s second round of development was done by Konrad McClure and Noah Griffith in 2021.
- The Tank Controller’s micro controller was updated to support API calls by Matthew Ma in 2020.
- The Tank Controller Manager was initial created by Cameron Bierwagen in 2020.
- The Alkalinity Titrator’s initial source code was developed by Kaden Sukachevin in 2020.
