Posted in thread: Contactor pole wiring question on 03-28-2014 at 03:49 PM
Is this a contactor for 115vac or 230vac? What is past the contactor? If this is the main
contactor for the whole panel then the neutral will bypass the contactor and go directly into a
Posted in thread: Contactor pole wiring question on 03-28-2014 at 03:31 PM
So Neutral on 1 and Hot on 3 will be output to A1?

I have a contactor similar to this one, but my wiring diagram from ebrewsupply doesnt show
exactly where to connect my hot/neutral wires to it. (1; 2; 3; 4; A1; A2)

OK thanks for all the info guysWhat i am looking to do is i am building a RIMS tube with a
5500W 240V element wired with only 120V so i should get about 1375V out of the element. I want
to have this c...

Simply put, an SSR is not a perfect or 100% reliable device. They leak a small amount of
current, even when off. They can fail closed (power flowing). The PID can turn them on at any
moment, even if t...

The contactor/rated switch is to have a mechanical cut-off. Supposedly SSRs can fail with the
circuit closed, so you could have power shooting through to your element even when the PID
isn't sending t...

So im in the process of getting some materials together to build a RIMS tube. My question is
will the SSR power the heating element directly? The PID will send the SSR signal(3V - 32V) to
the SSR rela...

Really cool HLT setup. I want something like this in the near future. I hate having to babysit
Posted in thread: Will pellet hops clog my chiller and pump? on 02-19-2014 at 06:09 PM
Im no expert but i dont think the pump will have any problems with particles. The problem will
be hop particles getting stuck/clogged in the counterflow chiller you are using
