About the TC4+.

At its core, the TC4+ enables you to do two things. First, temperature measurement of your roast, through a 4-channel thermocouple interface. Second, heater control, and if necessary control of other parameters, for optimal roast temperature. On top of that, there is a number of useful extras, like support for an optional Bluetooth module, or an on-board DC fan controller. See the ordering page for a list of the main features, or technical documentation for a quick-start guide, a detailed manual and other information.
