Default Wiring Auber PIDs for Brutus Build

Anyone have any experience wiring the Auber SYL-1512A2 PID? Do I need to install jumpers? I'm STUCK!

I'm building Lonnie Mac's Brutus build.

The PID autosenses the AC power input. You simply connect Hot and Neutral. Other than that you simply connect your thermocouple or RTD (jumper terminals 6 to 7 if you are using a RTD) and connect the internal mechanical relay (terminals 4 and 5 rated at 240 VAC @ 3 amps) or Solid State Switch (terminals 9 and 10 for 8 VDC at 40 mA output). I hope that helps.

Just a note, If you have a 2-wire RTD then jump 6 to 7 as stated above. If you have a 3-wire RTD, the resistance goes across 7&8 and the shorted wire across 6&7!

Here's what I have..sorry for not posting earlier:
1. 2....2-wire ASCO valves
2. 2.....3-wire March Pumps
3. 2....Auber PIDs.
4. 2....2-wire LOVE thermisters

What is an RTD? Are you referring to the ASCO solenoid valves?

Thermistors are RTD's or Temperature Dependant Resistors. I would check with Auber to see if the Love thermistors will work with your Auber PID's. A Brutus 10 has a temperature controlled HLT and MLT so you will need to measure your HLT and MLT temperatures with the RTD's connected to the PID's and controll the solenoid valves connected to the relay outputs of the PID's and whatever voltage you use for your Solenoid Valve coils. I assume that your Solenoid coils are 120 VAC. I also need to know if you thernistors will work with the Auber PID and if it has 2 or 3 leads. If you get me this information I have AutoCAD so I can draw up and post an exact wiring diagram for you when I get home from work this afternoon if you wish.

Sawdustguy: THANK YOU. My ASCO Solenoids are 120VAC. My temp probes are Love TS-6 two wires. Here's the product page from Grainger.
