Default Check my Wiring Diagram.



This is the diagram of my control panel that will control my HLT and MLT heating elements. The thermocouple will be in the HLT the whole time, I will run my boil on manual mode, so the input doesnt need to reflect the temperature of the boil does it? The switch on the far left is supposed to be a whole system kill switch. The ones on the right are supposed to allow me to switch between powering the HLT and the BK. I will never have both on. I was not sure how to wire the PID and SSR. What Ive got is the auber PID and SSR. Anyone know how to wire those up? Any flaws in my set up?

Thanks guys. (and gals)

Looks right to me. Only thing is you only have one control so both elements will switch on and off just the same. Guess you knew that already.

but if I use the switches on the right to break the circuit to the HLT then all of the juice will go to the BK and visa versa right?

Yes, that is correct.

#1, your PID should have TWO outputs to the SSR.

#2. The SSR only has ONE output, you are depicting two it seems.

Do you have the PID and SSR and switches in hand now?

The PID should have (2) outputs to the SSR
The SSR should have ONE line in and ONE load out

If you want to feed (2) elements from on PID, you will have to split the line, but again, there is only ONE line (load) coming out of an SSR

This being said, you will have to feed another line to your switches on the right, from somewhere OTHER than the SSR.

What is the rating of the SSR? 40A?

What is the size of the elements?

Do you ever intend to use them both at the same time?

Be very careful taking electrical advice on an online forum!!!!

Well, I'm glad I didn't just build this thing and fire it up. It seemed wrong to me. The PID and SSR are from Auber.

  • 1/16 DIN PID Temperature Controller (Relay Output) (SYL-2342)
  • 40 A SSR (RS1A40D40) = $19.00

I don't have the PID or SSR in hand right this minute, but they are at my house. I believe these are the same components you used, but I cant figure out how they are supposed to be wired based on your threads and the instruction booklet.

The elements are 5500 watt ULWD elements, I will never run both at the same time.

So, the SSR only controls one of the powered wires, the other one needs to be split after the switch on the left and run to the PID and the two switches on the right?

You bought the wrong PID... you dont want a relay output.

You need the SYL-2352 as listed in my parts list. You need it for the SSR output, NOT relay.
