Posted in thread: 240v Elements -Single SSR or 2? Pros / Cons? on 02-26-2015 at 04:43 PM
Thanks Thargrav! I thought this was where this was going but I needed it dumbed down to that
level to make sure I actually understood. Adam...which is why the neutral is only being used on
the 120V si...

Posted in thread: BCS 462 , 4 element, 3 pump, 2 x 50amp circuits on 02-26-2015 at 04:58 AM
I'm always confused when I see three pumps. When does one need three liquid flows
simultaneously? For that matter, when does one need 22,000 watts running at the same time? I've
always figured on putt...
Posted in thread: Lets see how crazy its gotten. How much have you spent on your Electric Brewery? on 02-26-2015 at 04:55 AM
I refuse to acknowledge what I have sunk in my home brewery... yup... I'm in complete denial!!
I've been at this for almost 10 years, and I've chased more rabbits down the hole than I care
to admit, f...

Doug293cz,I'm happy to say "That makes sense!!" :)I was planning on keeping all of the
electrons for each circuit separate in the control box, especially since only one of the
circuits will be multipu...

Jeffmeh,Got it!! That makes sense... I think. I hope I don't blow my new-found enthusiasm with
the next couple of questions.When wiring up each of the four Power In Relays to the Power key

I'll have to spend a few minutes pondering that - I'm still trying to visualize it. I guess my
initial confusion is on your use of six? I have four power sources, 2 30A/240V, and 2 20A/120V.
Is it bec...

You only need to run one 120v hot and neutral to a N.O. 120v switch, to a 120v coil for the
contactor, then have all 6 hot lines run through the contactor. There is likely some 240v, 120v
coil, 6 line...

If I understand correctly, you will have 4 independent circuits, 2@240v, 2@120v as input into
the panel. Why that rather than, say, one 60a, 120v/240v input? Your method will certainly
work, and rathe...

Many, MANY thanks to all who have contributed so much to this thread (and others), and
