Is this Contactors | Contactors | Contactor - 2 Pole 30 Amps 120 Coil Voltage | B238482 - GlobalIndustrial.com a good contactor to use to switch the power to my elements? I thought about using 24v coil models, but that isnt enough power for the PID is it?
This is what I'm working on... I need to wire and plumb it still... dying to finish, but I really spent too much on it already this week.
If you're using a PID you will want an SSR instead of a mechanical relay. Here's what is typically recommended here: 40 A SSR [RS1A40D40] - $19.00 : auberins.com, Temperature control solutions for home and industry
Edit: Totally misread this at first and was thinking relays, sorry. The link you posted doesn't work for me. http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=129

I do have a SSR, but it is my understanding that it's a good idea to use that in conjunction with a contactor. The HLT and BK are my concerns, the Herms uses a 1500w 120v element and I plan to just use the SSR with the pid for that.
