Default STC-1000 Temperature controller

Hi,

I bought the STC-1000 temperature controller online.
http://bit.ly/IRwhz0

I was wondering if anyone had the same device and if they could share infos and pictures on how to wire it to my fridge’s on freezer’s power supply. There’s a bit or re-wiring to be done and I want to be sure I’m putting the good wires int he good spots (not an electrician!).

Thanks.

Here's a good thread:
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/ebay...-build-163849/

Or just search for "STC-1000" wiring - there's a plethora of great information available.

There's hundreds of threads and plans on here.



Here's my wiring diagram for the STC 1000



I used it with a brew belt last winter to ghetto lager on my GF's sunporch.

Revvy,
Duct tape and plastic bags!!!! You are truly my brewing hero now. I love the low tech solution to solving problems. The Oldtimers from thousands of years ago managed to make some pretty serious brews with not much and a touch of luck. Cool "Ghetto Lager tub". The STC-1000 can be hardwired, but since I am less of an electrician than I am a brewer, i would recomend that you contact one to make sure you are safe. No since in burning your house down or electrocuting SWMBO accidently. The SWMBO may need it but thats another story entirely.
Bob

If you ordered that one it is 220v and won't work unless you have access to 220v or convert it to either 110v or remove the transformer and plug a 9vdc power supply in it's place.

There is a thread here on how to do that.

Woah. Thanks a lot for all the infos people. Really appreciated.
I indeed bought that one. A brewer that was referred to me by a friend told me it was the thing to buy. Have no clue what 220v or 110v are though...

I’ll look into all the infos you sent me. Thanks.

Oh and I did search the forums for "STC-1000" and I hadn’t found anything?!
Anyways, thanks.

Most folks call them the "ebay temp controller." That's probably why.

Oh. I see. Are there any 110v ebay temp controller?
Coz I’m almost afraid of converting it... doesn’t seem that simple especially for someone like me who barely understands what 220v means...

Your home outlet is 110v, that one needs 220v, you will have to convert it before you can use it. A friend of mine bought 4 of the same and I converted them for him and the easiest way is with a 9vdc plug in power supply.

The only drawback is you have 9vdc at the controller instead of 110v so you have to bring 110v to the relay for whatever device you are switching or use a 9vdc SSR to switch your power.
