Default BCS-460 and SSR wiring help!

Well, here goes... it officially begins.

For now, I want to start very basically.

Here is what I am starting with: I have a single 110v outlet/receptacle, 12/2 cable, a 25a SSR from Auber Instruments, and the bcs-460. My control box is an old PC tower.

Need some wiring help. I want to run the wire from the bcs, to the ssr, to the receptacle. I will be using the receptacle to plug in my refrigerator ferm chamber.

So... it seems "simple" but want some reassurance. I will take wire from out0 and run it to terminal 3 on the SSR (the + on the control side of the SSR 3-32 vdc). Then I will take wire and run it from ground on the bcs and run it to terminal 4 on the SSR (the - on the control side of the SSR 3-32 vdc). Right so far?

Now, where I am really in need of a little guidance. The 12/2 cable has a black which should be hot/+ correct? The bare cable is the ground/-? Correct? White is "neutral"?

Now where do I go from here? How do I hook up the 12/2 cable from the ssr to the receptacle?

Thanks in advance!

Your 110V circuit has a black, white, and green wire. Run the green to the outlet ground lug. Run the white to the outlet silverish terminal, which is the larger slot. Run the black to the SSR 1 terminal, then run the SSR 2 terminal to the outlet brass terminal. Voila.

Good point. If there is any exposed metal on the case, it should be grounded.

The case IS metal... so just run an extra wire from the green screw on the receptacle to the case as well?

I think you want the ground in the control outlet to go to the in-wall ground. If you ware just using the computer case as an enclosure, and do not have the ATX power supply pluged in, the case is not earth grounded. I would also have a GFCI in the circuit somewhere just to be safe.

Looking good. You can never have too many grounds.
