The PID are not properly set into the enclosure they are just resting on the top currently. I still have some filling to do to make sure they fit snug. The labels are only 1/2" tall do there should not be any issue with them fitting.

I see now that you say the PIDs aren't sitting in yet. I think it's going to turn out pretty sharp. Enjoy the process. We are building similar panels, with 2 PIDs and a timer. I look forward to seeing your progress. I had trouble getting help with my wiring diagram so I butchered up one of PJs and came up with my own. I used the standard Microsoft paint program.

Yea... Define what you want to have for the end result first.. The plan on what components you want to use would help.

Links to the 'stuff"?

Thanks P-J.

I'm looking for a 120v (20amp GFI breaker) control panel with a single out put for a 2000w element for a HERMS set up. I'll have 1 PID to control the HERMS and another PID just for Mash Temp. There will be 1 timer with reset button and all 3 wired to their own alarm switch and a central buzzer.

The main panel will have a keyed switch and indicator light. The element will have an on'off switch and indicator light when active through the PID.

Finally, 2 pumps with on/off switch and indicator light.

Here is a link to some of the items.

PID: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...&products_id=3
Timer: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=290
SSR: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...products_id=30
Reset: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400081195462...84.m1497.l2649
Main on/off: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280793996200...84.m1497.l2649
switches: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400205772912...84.m1497.l2649
Lights: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400267711624...84.m1497.l2649
Buzzer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/400331769823...84.m1497.l2649

I also bought 2 in line fuses.

Please let me know what I'm missing and what info you need. And thank you for time.

I would recommend using ebrewsupply for all those switches, lights, and buttons. Price is comparable and you'll get great customer support that you won't get from china.

Thanks for the info. I followed a lot of Kal's ordering needs. A lot of supplies I already had on hand from previous attemps at building up my system. Also, 90% of my supplies were purchased right here in the USA.

It took some doing to put it all together for you. I hope it is what you wanted. Just a note about it. Due to the limited power rating of the switches, I placed Mini Power Relays where full power would be delivered.

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

All cut outs are done. Looking to start installing components tomorrow.

Wish me luck.
