Default Brutus Love controller

Like many, I have found that the exact model Love Temp controller listed on Lonnie's build sheet is no longer in production.

I am looking at this one at Dwyer, https://www.dwyer-inst.com/Product/Temperature/TemperatureSwitches/DigitalPanelMount/SeriesTS

Just curious if this will suffice?

Also, will the corresponding temp probes serve the same purpose they need to in the Brutus style system? Here is a link for them.

I am lost on this so please don't rake me over the coals.

I'm in the same boat as you. Interested to see what people have to say. I've been looking at this controller.

I've read of others using it for a brutus style set up.

Yeah that's the same one as I listed. It looks damn near identical to the one in the Brutus build sheet but no one ever comments. I'm ordering it. Hopefully it works out I guess.

I've ordered the same one. From what I've gathered it works the same but wires up a bit differently. You do not need switches on the input and output of the controller (I might be wording that wrong, as I am far from an electrical genius)

Does that SLY1512A have ability to take a thermal probe?

Yes, it has Thermocouple, or RTD capability and Alarm capability, I use it with my RIMS tube, works, but for a few dollars more go with the SYL-2362 it has the dual LCD readout, easier to see both temps wish I had done this first. I will get the SYL-2362 and use the other one for my HLT at a later date.

So two of the SYL-2362 would be more than enough for the HLT and Mash tun, correct? This will allow me to use gas valves on my HLT and Mash tun burner as I understand.

I just want to make sure my parts will work.
