Would this switch work for having on/off/on? Could you show the wiring with a contactor, and which contactor do you recommend from auber to work with a switch like this?

http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=235

Could you explain the difference between the N/O and N/C contact blocks?

Do a search on Radio Shack for “terminal strip”.

So that diagram is awesome and pretty much what I am planning to do now. Minus one pump. I think. One question though. How do you control two different vessels with one PID? No temp probe in the boil kettle? Or a 3PST switch on the probe to select from two different probes?

A temp probe is not needed in the boil kettle. You change the PID mode to manual and then control the percent of power being delivered during the boil.

P-j Any chance of updating this drawing to show the Auberins SW1 switch and two contactors? I'd also like to wire in an on-off switch for the alarm.

I think i have it figured out, but would like to check it against your diagram.

Thanks!

SW1 shows that additional N/O blocks are available. I do not see that N/C blocks are available for it. You need to call Auber Instruments and see if you can get 2 N/C blocks that will work with that switch as add on modules.

Edit: NEVERMIND with the rest of my post. I need to settle down..

Sorry for the delay in responding to your requests and I sincerly apologize for that.

The N/O - N/C contact in a switch that is an ON/OFF switch behave as one would expect. However, with a 'center off' switch the N/C blocks behave in a rather different manner than one would expect. Here is an illustration:



The switch that you linked is an Auber Instruments SW3 unit. That specific switch is illustrated in the diagram (switch #1) that I drew for you that includes contactors instead of the switch in the diagram on page one. This diagram has a few function changes included as well. The timer now has 'pause' & 'reset' buttons. The PID has alarm wiring as well. I sourced everything that I could from Auber Instruments.

I hope this helps you in your plan.

As always - Click on the image to see a full scale diagram printable on Tabloid paper (11" x 17")



I hope this is of some help to you. And again, sorry for the delay.

P-J
