Default Dual digital PID temperature controller

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Dual-Digital-PID-...item19b7f1a56b


Will this work with a 5500W (or larger) electric system? Would I just need to wire up the heating element and plug it in? It's got a type K thermocouple.

This should work for your control but you'll need a solid state relay and potentially a contactor (for a 240V element) to actually deliver power to your heating element. There are many threads on this forum to help you learn what else you need. Do some searching and you should find what you need.
