Default Completed Wiring Diagram for CP!

Gus,

I took out the pause/reset circuits on the timer. I set up the timer alarm circuit to the common buzzer. I also added the fuse for the PIDs.

On your follow up e-mail (quoted below), you mentioned the missing neutral to the PID. I totally missed that and fixed it with the attached new version. By the way, it has a new name so that both diagrams still exist. I also fixed the original diagram with the missing neutral. If you refresh that drawing you will see the change.

This is the small image and the link below it to see (and save) a full scale diagram that is printable on Tabloid paper (11" x 17")

Again, I hope this is what you are trying to achieve.

Paul

Really excited to have the wiring diagram complete... Time to start melting the credit card again!

No surprise, but P-J is the man!

Default Control Panel Mockup

Here's what I'm envisioning for the CP front view. 16"x16"x8" enclosure (drawing is not to scale, obviously).

Would you need the PID on/off lights? Wouldn't you know if they were on or off if the display was lit up? I know it's only $10 in lights but sometimes less is more.

Great point, Garyr2973! Going to drop that LED from the plan.

You shouldn't need the PID power switch as well. I have mine powered anytime the panel power is on. It would look much cleaner if you added the MLT alarm switch(Pretty inexpensive). That's about the only thing your missing of a Kal clone, like the one I've also built. Just My two cents, Castermmt

You could also use illuminated swithces or buttons for the pumps and combine the LED into the switch, if you wanted. I agree that a PID power switch isn't really needed as there doesn't seem to be a reason to have your panel turned on if you have your PIDs turned off.
