No problem ... I know your frustration ... Take your time i was just getting nervous that I couldn't use my coupon and the site was gone looking forward to ordering a cabinet enclosure and some switches and led lights but I'm cool with waiting I saw you were out of stock on the switches ... I would also be interested in an alarm

Question, If I want to power only one element at a time, but use a switch to choose between them, do I need two SSRs?

Run the SSR before your 3-way switch you could, but you will still have 2 hot elements because your second pole will always be hot. I use 2 SSRs and 2 contactors after the SSRs like Tiber_Brew in my setup.

They'd still have one hot leg, but I have a switch that turns the whole thing off when I want to. The element isn't "hot" with only one leg on, and won't complete a circuit that way.

Either way wouldn't the 3 way switch have to be able to handle that much power? The switches i see don't seem to be able to.

I've been following this for a few days now. Looks real good. Can't wait to see when you get new stuff.

Since I know I'll be building my set-up over the summer, may I please have a coupon. I think those switches and lights will look pretty in a box.

Thanks.

Correct. The switches that I have are all 10a rated. The vast majority of these style switches will be 10a. That's where contactors are a good addition, they are designed for the high amperage, and your switch only has to carry a low amperage current to power the coil.

My last bit of fun in my control box was kind enough to remind me, just because the switch is off, doesn't mean the the circuit is dead. My fingers were tingling for a few moments after meeting the one leg of a 220v that was still hot.

Cool, thank you for the reply. So I either use a two contactors and an SSR, or just use the switch in between the PID and 2 SSRs. The cost of those two options looks pretty comparable. Thank you
