$45.35
Cable Option Deluxe Cable
1 x 1/4 DIN PID Temperature Controller (SYL-43X2) = $59.50

You need a PID that supports SSR output, such as the SYL-4352. The SYL-4342 supports RELAY output.

You can probably call Auber and have the order changed.

Thanks I adctually read threw allot of post and found out I needed the 4352 sent a email yesterday and the fixed it yesterday witch I thought was odd but I'm happy also ordered the heat sink and they added it to my order from before and refunded me the shipping that was charged for the heat sink that site has great customer service..... I wonder if the op can list the proper pid on his diagram since he has the 4342 shown on it....

Well, it was about 3 years ago, but I'd say nope.

I've built about 4 of these. If you need assistance, don't be afraid to chime in.

Default Is this element really ULWD??

I've cycled through a few elements in the past year. The first one said it was 120V 1500W ULWD, but I came to find out (as others did) that this 4 1/2" element was definitely not ULWD. I changed it out and went to a 9" element that was 120V and 1500W. Said LWD, but was much longer.

Well, I recently did a pilsner and had some scorching when ramping up for a mashout. I did do a protein rest and that created quite a lot of protein gunk.

So I went to amazon.com and bought a 220V ULWD element that was 4500W. I figured I'd run it at 120V and avoid scorching. Thing is, the element is shorter than a 220V 4500W LWD element I have in my BK running at 220V.

WTF? Does amazon and Camco just lie about these things? The new one is a lime life element, but it's 10" long and the other one is 13." Can't see how it can have less watt density, can you? Thinking about sending it back.

One other question, does anyone successfully do temperature ramps with their RIMS tube? I never have scorching issues just maintaining temps. But I have twice gotten some scorch when doing ramps from a protein rest or for mash out. I get good flow. I'm not measuring it, but it's solid.

Cheers.

I do ramps using heat tape outside of a rims tube with no issues.

I am doing a couple of cycles this weekend so I will take photos to document the process.
