Yes I've made such diagrams. What is it that you are trying to do? What are the 3 elements for?

How about this?

As usual - click on the image to see the full scale diagram that is printable on Tabloid paper (11" x 17")

I have no clue. That is something you need to decide.

Are you going to house the BCS controller in it? Aux power? Other stuff?

Lots of factors involved as well..

The particular schematic is drawn for a 50A GFCI power feed. It requires a 50A GFCI protected line from the mains for it to work properly.

You might get away with a 40A feed if you reduce the element wattage on the HLT and BOIL elements.

That is something for you to decide.
