Thank you!
I can confirm this works great and is easy to set once you know how!
I have both the Ta7,TD4 and a rex c100 model pids and the td4 is the best one hands down followed by the TA model which works great and fast for the hlt... the Rex c100 is pretty lame in comparison with terrible directions and only celcius readouts...
Plus as others have stated of the 3 only the TD4 has the manual mode. Its easy to operate for me and fairly intuitive. The other plus is you can buy the td4 for $25 shipped from us sellers on eBay.
So far I've only done test runs heating and maintaining water but the elements (4500w) made quick work of my 7 gallon test run size!!
here is a pic showing the lights indicating manual mode at 40%
(Yes my elements are off in the pic)
