Posted in thread: Split Electric Control Panel? on 12-06-2013 at 04:07 AM
I have a 50 amp panel for a 1 barrel brewery. If I had it to do over, I would use two panels
just as you have proposed. For a simpler 30 amp panel, it probably wouldn't be worth it.

Great thread!Where did you get the clear "pipe" for your inline oxygenator?

No. The SSR is between the main contactor and the contactors that control the elements.

I did some rewiring in my control panel and then tested it with my multimeter. At my two 240
vac outlets, I found 235 vac (on) and 0.25 vac (off) and 235 vac (on) and 1.1 vac (off). I was

Clean it up with an abrasive and brew beer!

1. You don't need to wire your pump into the control panel but it won't cost you much to do
so.2. I don't see any advantage to having 2 PIDs - Just switch between controlling the HLT and
BK. No wet ha...

Look at the first two diagrams in this thread - pretty much covers both of the options I
presented. prefer a more traditional e-stop circuit but PJ presents valid arguments for his
Posted in thread: Simple One PID Control Panel Questions on 11-23-2013 at 05:32 PM
Yes, you could easily do what you have described. You could use a PID and SSR to control output
to two contactors which in turn control the output to two outlets. Then use a three way switch
(HLT - of...

I use a hose clamp on my O2 hose - you will get back flow thru the stone until you turn on the
