Default would this be suitable as a control pannel enclosure.

I'm building a brutus style rims system. I need a box to use as a control panel. What do you think about this one? The price is right.

Looks doable. Should be easy to work with.

It's not water-tite by any means.
Looks like you'll have to seal the unused knockouts.

Be careful with the SSR heatsink. I have no experience with how warm they get.

I'm not using a heat sink so no worries. I don't have any ssr's just the pid and a 24v transformer to control 2 furnace valves with standing pilot lights. At least I don't think I need an ssr or a heatsink.

on further inspection the pids are 4" deep. I think I need a 6" deep box. I may just make my own out of plywood.
