Thank you. I'm going to take the lessons learned from this smoker project, and apply them to an electric rims system.
Before you get an SSR, figure out what your electrical load will be. If it's less than 3 amps, then you can use the built in relay. If it's over 3 amps, get the SSR.
Just foun the watts. 1500, so around 13 amps.
Looks like a 20-25 amp SSR and heat sink are in your future.
Yep, I ordered this one today. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390160222868
I did not do the heat sink though. How critical is it?
Ok it's covered. I just ordered this. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=120532040780
Thanks for the heads up.
