I hear ya were almost neighbors.
I have a Hoffman "Design Air" 100 watt electric heater
that has a mini muffin fan inside the metal box as well
a 0*F to 100*F stat built in. Before this a reptile heating
element was used. I'm about a block away from saltwater,
milder temps year round.

What's the best way to mount the pid in a keezer? Does it have to be enclosed to prevent moisture?

Ok guys. I have the SYL 2362A2 PID and a SSR 25A SSR. I read through this whole thread, but I am still confused on how to wire this with the SSR. Any suggestions?

I wonder how just a 100 watt light bulb would work as a heater inside my refrigerator?

Go to their website and open up the operating manual (pdf file). It will show how to wire many types of control outputs.

Here is the link: www.auberins.com

Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the link.

Salute!

That's the first thing I thought about when I saw the picture of the PID installed on the front door of the fridge. The outside of these Auberins PIDs are fairly well protected. I talked to Suyi and he tells me the front panels are IP54 rated but of course there's no rating for the insides as they're completely exposed.

Might not even need a 100W I have used a 60W with a small Computer case fan to keep air moving in my Fermfreezer. Got it hooked to a seperate thermostat. This causes me trouble in that the Johnson controller and the heater thermostat can get in to a heating cooling fight. Took me a while to get it just right.

I plan on using a SYL-2342 to control my keezer and fermfreezer. I have used these before for controlling a small RIMS heater in my system in the brewing process.

Quick question. I received a free GE 25.3 cubic foot freezer. The compressor is rated at 4.3 amps, will I need a SSR along with the PID to use it as a keezer?
