The other day Bokonon pointed me towards physfarm's thread http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/web-controlled-all-one-temp-controller-145395/
. And I've now got one of the boards and am working on getting it all up and running.
Have the board in a central location, running cat5 cable to my brew stand and to my kegerator and fermentation chamber areas, where I will have additional junction boxes to house the relays and outlets.
On the brewstand for now I just plan to have a heating element for my HLT and a valve and sensor to fill the hlt when required. I'll do more in the future, but figured baby steps.
I'm hoping to document this with a good bit of detail, as I am relying heavily on help from Bokonon and others in the chat for this project.
Here is the board, it's smaller than I expected:
I placed it on a sheet of paper and marked the holes with a sharpie, I then used whatever you call the sharp thing to transfer the holes to the board:
I used these spare computer case standoffs, to mount it:
I've had these hole measuring things around for years, never had a good used for them until now(guess I only needed to keep 1 not 3 though...):
9/64's was the hole size, and it needed to be 1/8 in deep. No pictures here, but I set my drill press up to drill the holes nice and straight.
