oh I see. Well I can answer your SSR question. A solid state relay is what actually switches the circuit on and off for high amperage circuits when the controller can not handle that amount of electricity.
Many people here like to use the Auber Instruments 2352 PID. the PID sends a signal to the ssr so it knows when to turn the elements on and off because the PID can not handle that much electricity moving through it. www.auberins.com
