Default Drawing Help Needed

This is probably the wrong place for this post but the help I need is all electrical so I figured you guys would be the right ones to ask for help.

I would really appreciate some help with a wiring diagram for my direct fire system. Here are a few details on what I am using:

3- Honeywell gas valves VR8345 w/ S8610 ignition modules
1- Pump

Here is what I would like to add to the system.
2- PID’s w/ RTD’s for the MLT and HLT with manual switch option and LED’s
1- Temperature gauge w/ RTD for the BK on a switch w/ LED
1- Pump switch w/ LED
I would also like to have a main power switch w/ LED.

After looking through all of the drawings I could find from P-J I couldn’t find one that met my want list or uses an electronic ignition.

Any help you guys could give would be greatly appreciated.

The drawing attached might help you in your plan.

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

Thanks. I should be able to figure out how to change out the switches and add the LEDs.

I appreciate the help.

I placed those specific switches as they are LED illuminated devices.

Here's the link - Illuminated Maintained Pushbutton Switch

Quote:
Operation Current Rating: 10A at 240 or 120VAC
Number of Contact: 2 Normally Open
Illumination Type: LED
Illumination color: Red, Blue, Green, yellow or white
Illumination Voltage: 240 or 120VAC

I am looking for a switch that is on-off-manual. That is why i figured on a switch and an LED.

You want the 'manual' leg to fire the burner at 100% and skip the PID, or am I missing something? Why not just set the PID to manual mode and do it that way?

Understood. Now comes the problem that I see in the many hours of trying to come up with a drawing that 'fits' your plan. I am totally unable to locate a LED that can be powered with 24V AC so that it illuminates with the selection of PID or Manual mode. Using a 120V LED really complicates the wiring with a huge jump in cost for custom switches.

Anyway, I tried my best. Sorry that it does not fit your needs. Wishing you success with your plan. Sorry for the diversion, I was just trying to help.

Excellent and very easy to do. I agree.!

So this is where my ignorance kicks in. I can use the PID in a manual mode instead of using a seperate switch?

It may be model specific, but the PIDs most of us use - SYL-2352s from Auber - allow Auto or Manual modes. In auto, set it and forget it, the PID does the rest. In manual, you set the % you want it to run, whether that's 60% or 10% or 100%, it doesn't care. It's great for boiling with an element - mine sustains a rolling boil at 60%. So you could easily use the PID to manually go to 100% or whatever you wanted.

I have decided to to make a change to my plans. I would like to add a RIMS tube to it. I want keep the same drawing you sent m, but add a PID controlled RIMS to it. So I will direct fire the HLT and BK and have the RIMS on the MLT. Do you have a drawing that depicts this set up?
