Good point. There is a reason that particular PID is so popular.
I'm wondering about my choice of temperature probes. I want something that is really accurate. The RTD type of probes from what I've read are better than the thermocouple type. They are more stable over time and less likely to drift. Any recommendations as to the particular probes?
Also, will I need an SSR with these if I'm only monitoring temperatures and not doing automation yet?
