    Default Fog machine temperature?

    Hi, I am working on PID controlling a cheap fog machine heater, so see if I can get it to run CW duty.

    I am leaving the pump on the thermal switch, so it can't be operated until it's up to temp, however the switch that is normally in the machines goes open circuit when the temperature is reached. So, I need to buy a normally open one.

    Does anyone have a fog machine nearby they could check the operating temperature on? Or anyone know the temp off hand?

    Cheers,
    Dan

    Sounds about right. I remember measuring one of my fog machines and it came in around 229C, though wasn't sure whether it was 129C, or 329C etc.
