All you really need to do is provide your own 10 volt DC source (the 9 volt DC walwart, 9 Volts is enough to turn the SSR on) and switch it with the relay contacts on your PID.
It's not an inverter. A inverter make DC into AC. It is a simple Wall Wort DC power supply which is available at Radio Shack for about 7 bucks. Get one that is 9 VDC (Very common Wall Wort voltage). To switch the SSR you need very little current so almost any 9 VDC Wall Wort will work.

Yes
As long you don't exceed the SSR control voltage, look at the SSR.
Most SSR's have a 3-30 VDC control voltage range.

Below is the description for the Auber 25 Amp SSR. Note the input voltage is 4.5 VDC to 32 VDC, so yes a 13 VDC wall wort will work as Claudius B has predicted. BTW, back in post #3, The Pol asked how much current do you really need to switch? Are you aware the relay contacts internal to PID can handle up to 10 Amps at 120 VAC? You may not need a SSR at all.

Description: 25A SSR
Manufacturer: Lide
Manufacture’s Part Number: RS1A40D25
Input Voltage 4.5-32VDC
Output Voltage: 40-400VAC
Current Rating: 25A
Output: Triac
Switch method: zero-cross turn on
Approval :CE
Condition: New
Warranty: 90 days
Specification: http://www.auberins.com/SSR%20Series-RS1A.pdf

sawdustguy,

i need the SSR just because i have a 1500 watt element im running, i think 10 A will run up to a 1200 W element so its kind of a must

I wasn't sure exactly how much current you were switching but at 12.5 amps you will meed the SSR.

Hi guys,

I've been racking my brain trying to figure out which PID I need to get and if it will do what I need. I have two applications.

1) Control a chest freezer to keep it at 40F or so.

2) Control a fan.

I want to buy two PID's and was wondering if this PID would work for the freezer (120v) and a second one would control a fan (12v or 120v)

I would like it to be 100% on until the tempurature is reached and then completely shut off. Will this PID do the job?

Are you planning on using the PID's for the same freezer?
If yes, use the Love TSS2 two channel ON/OFF controller.

Long time ago I read TET612 manual and found some limitations for my brewing.
I need to go back and read the manual again.

Cheers,
ClaudiusB
