HOW TO: Wire an Auber SYL-2362A2 PID for a Fridge
 
5 Attachment(s)

This is the EASY way to wire the Auber SYL-2362A2 PID controller for a kegarator, keezer, or fermentation chamber.

Items needed
1 10+ foot 14AWG 3 wire extension cord.
1 SYL-2363A2 PID Controller
1 type K Thermocouple (example here, get one with long enough leads.)
6 blue Skinny fork connectors

Tools
Wire cutters/strippers.
Crimping tool

The service cord to my freezer was only 18 AWG, so 14AWG cord is more than plenty.


Cut the extension cord in half. Strip about 8 inches of the outer sheathing back on the male side and 4 inches back on the female side. So the three wires are exposed. Should be a black, white, and green wire.


Take the side with the male plug and cut 4 inches of the black, white and, green wires.


Toss the small white and green wires. Now strip a quarter inch off each end of the small black wire and and all of the wires on the extension cord. Crimp small fork connectors onto all white, black, and both ends of the small black wire. (One is missing on the short black wire here, wasn't sure if it was going to be too long. it wasn't)


Unscrew terminal 1 and stuff the black fork from the cable with male plug and one end of the short black wire on under the screw and tighten it.
Unscrew the #2 terminal and put the white wire from both halves of the cord under it and tighten.
There should be some forks on the ends of the thermo couple. Take a philips head screw driver and loosen the screws labeled 9 and 10 and slip one fork under each one and tighten them down.

Unscrew terminal 13 and place the loose end of the short black wire under it and tighten. Unscrew terminal 14 and place the black wire from the female cord under it and tighten.


Last take the two green wires and use a wire nut to twist them together. (Strip back to 1/2" if needed.)


Double check that all the screw terminals are good and snug.

Here comes the hard part.
Plug one end into the wall.

If all goes well none of the magic smoke will escape (You followed the directions right?)

Then plug the fridge/freezer into the female end of the cord.


Bend the forks 90deg away from the PID so the wires are coming straight at the controller. Put a couple of wraps of electrical tape around the base to protect the terminals. Secure the controller to the fridge. (this is temporary with tie wraps and some sticky pads.)


Here is a pic of one properly mounted in the door of a fermenting chamber.
