Default Love Dual Stage Temp Controller, question

Could I use a single love dual stage temp controller to control two separate chambers of a cooler? Basically I want to have one large chamber seperated in the middle into two chambers. The colder side will have my 4.4cf fridge hooked up to it with a collar. The warmer side used for fermentation will have a hole with a fan to bring in cool air from the colder side.

I looked at the wiring diagram for the dual stage Love controller and saw that you can use two temp probes. If I have one probe in each chamber are there two outputs for each probe? One for the compressor and one for the fan?

Yes. That will work as you have described it.

Thanks, that will make this the most economical way to go for now. I just started reading the user manual, and I think I got it down.
