The switches have 2 N.O. contacts (SW1), but the only one that really needs to able to switch two components is the one for the main pump (The switch for "Pump 1" in my control panel). It switches power to the pump while simultaneously switching the PID's low voltage output to the SSR...effectively so that you cannot power your element unless your pump is on. You might already konw this, but the reason for wiring it like that is so you don't risk powering your element without liquid flowing through your RIMS tube. I think even having liquid idle in the tube can be trouble if the element is on...boiling/scorching I guess. But without any liquid it can ruin the element...my understanding is that it will burn itself out fairly quickly.
Anyway...I got just about all my parts from Auberins. Here you go:SwitchesSSRHeat SinkTemperature probe
