Not a great idea to switch the input to a PID controller between two different applications. It
is unlikely a single set of PID tuning constants will be ideal for both applications. That
said, I have ...

I'm going to do a 50a 220v GFCI breaker in my main house panel. Run a 220v line to a 4 wire
receptacle. Then have my control panel plug into that. Inside of my control panel I'll have 2
