    Kevin, if you end up having bad luck with getting it replaced, trying sending a pm to
    zeus53219. He's packing up my contactors right now, and if he has them asks $22 each plus
    shipping.

    Sorry but I must disagree. Unless your control panel falls into your boil kettle, what is the
    reason for killing the feed? If it did fall into the BK, the gfci would take care of that
    anyway. Killing ...

    I went back and forth on the EPO method and opted for the GFCI trip. I looked into proper shunt
    trip beakers but they're damn costly so opted against. Tripping the GFCI is the next best thing
    in my op...

    OK, so it really is more of a fail safe or safety item. Not really required but foolish not to
    use one.Without a contactor in a 240v system your PID would only be able to output between
    50%-100% power...

    Should work nicely. I feel the contactor is a more reliable device for an e-stop. Throwing in
    the gfci shunt is extra insurance. Redundancy is a good thing in this circuit.Once your
    question made me s...

    That will work just fine. (Provided your PID outputs between 3-32V DC)Actually, I'm going to
    have to (potentially) rescind that. An SCR could potentially be used find for this purpose, I'm
    not sure if...

    Besides the additional cost for a DPST (1-NO, 1-NC) e-stop, I love the idea. Grateful for this
    thread for inspiring me to go this route. I like saving money where I can, but if there's an
    emergency I'...

    I've modified my diagram to have my E-Stop kill the coil to my main contactor as well as trip
    my GFI. proper way to do that is with a shunt trip breaker in the panel. Problem is that I
    can't find a G...

    Are you aware of leakage through the ssr? You may get a dim light with the ssr off. I was aware
    of the leakage, hadn't really contemplated the repercussions on the two element heating lights
    as they w...

    After months of research and pondering, I've finally finalized plans, and started ordering
    components. With that said, I've drawn up what I believe to be a fairly standard 50A, 2 PID, 2
    5500W Burner, ...
