The control panel is coming along nicely. I had to make a few last minute switch changes, but everything should be good now.

Originally all of the switches were purchased from pioneer breaker. I made a few mistakes on switch power ratings and selector choices, so I had to change a few out. I purchased the new switches from Automation Direct. It just happens that Automation Direct's headquarters is about 45min from me. I do have to say that I like the Automation Direct switches better. They are much more user friendly.

The key switch is a 2 way maintained selector controlling the main power
There is a PID for the Hot Liquor Tank, Mash Tun, and Boil Kettle
At the far right is a timer which is hooked up to an alarm, reset, and on/off switch
The green switches are 3 way maintained selector switches connected to the PIDs/Gas Valves (hand.off.auto)
The bottom white switches are 2 way maintained selector switches (on/off) controlling the two chugger pumps

At the bottom of the control panel is all of the power and rtd connections.
