The SSR (solid state relay) would be needed only if you plan on having the PID activate anything, like a heating element, a gas/water valve, etc. If you're just monitoring the temps, you don't need any SSR outputs.
Also, when you put this together, have a look at the owner's manual. It will tell you how to set the PID for a K-type probe. It's usually ether DIP switches or a small rotary dial.
