Greenhouse irrigation controller ( PIC16F84 )

Posted on Jun 15, 2012

This is a simple one-valve irrigation controller made for our greenhouse. The code contains a software real-time clock (RTC) and a multiplexed 8-digit LED display and keyboard you can use in other projects. The operating software is simple, it contains a real-time clock and a day counter. The valve is turned on in regular intervals in the same time. Day setting specifies the number of days between the activations, time setting specifies the time of the day when to start. Duration is the time after which the valve will be turned off. MODE button cycles through clock, start time and duration settings. the interval and starting time set will be stored in the DATA EEPROM. Scheduling can be totally turned OFF by the ENABLE button. Irrigation can be manually turned ON/OFF any time by the START/STOP buttons
