Default I need a single PID, single element diagram

I need a wiring diagram for a single PID controlling a single 240v heating element. I've been surfing the Internet and have found some that are almost what I need, but not quite. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Tell me what you want and I'll draw it for you.
I've posted a few diagrams here. Perhaps one of 'em might be close?

I need a wiring diagram for a system with just a single PID (Auber SYL-2352) controlling a single 240 volt 5500 watt heating element (Camco #02963 ultra low watt density RIPP element). Initially I just want a very basic setup. It will be a single kettle that I will use as both my HLT and BK. So just the ability to heat my strike water and to boil my wort. If you can dig up a diagram that would be great, thanks.

I suggest that you use this diagram:Auberin-wiring1-a4-5500w-30c.jpg
It is setup for a HLT and Boil kettle. You can use it as is - but - just don't set up the HLT outlet and its wiring from the DPDT switch. I suggest that you use the switch in any case as it will provide a positive disconnect for the heating element and if you add a HLT later on, you don't have to replace the switch.

BTW: The whole setup will fit in the Auberins Project Box

Please let me know if this is ok or if you want something added/changed.

Does this whole setup fit in the Project Box? If it does, it might actually be better than what I was looking for. I just want one PID and one element working initially, but I would like to move in to a dual element design with pumps as the next step.

I believe it will fit as long as you are using a single PID.

PJ would it possible to run a temp prob just for the HLT?

The HLT is the place where you would want to control the temperature so it's where the probe would normally go. No need for one in the boil kettle.

These are pretty close to what I was hoping to get done as well.

I am wanting a schematic for a BIAB system (much like what you are asking for, I believe, GRHunter). The MLT/and Boil Kettle would be the same vessel, thus a single element and PID. Only thing missing on the schematics you posted, P-J is the wiring of the temp probe.

Do you have something like that worked up?

Cheers,
Jeff

I took some liberties with your diagram P/J in irfanview. Keep in mind that I am know very little about electrical, but I feel I know enough to merely delete stuff!

Would this be an acceptable set-up for a PID controlled BIAB setup?
