You won't have a problem. If you're really concerned you could use a transformer to isolate
power to the PID or use a line reactor on your heater, but that is entirely unnecessary for a

I used a standard set of wire crimpers/cutters that had a crimper for insulated terminals. I
did not use the tool that is for sale on the electric brewery website.Is it advisable to use
some needle no...

There are PID algorithms written in C/C++ out there. There is probably already a version
written specifically for Arduino as well.

I wouldn't go to the trouble of changing what you already have. If they become a problem remove
them. They can be a point of failure, and really aren't necessary in most cases. They will
probably be o...

10AWG should be fine for 30A. hunter306 is probably correct--it's probably a poor connection.
Consider leaving the connector out. Maybe you aren't getting a good crimp. Connectors generally

The GFCI test button places a resistance across the Hot and Neutral to draw around 5mA of
current. One side of this circuit does go through the current sensing coil and the other side
doesn't to creat...
