Just an FYI but the online prices at Murray Equipment are not accurate. I guess they have had troubles with their system and the prices are up. I think all the stuff cost me about $64 instead of $51 which the web said.

Edit: it was the wrong price in house, web prices are good. Saved me $15

Anyone know what the typical amps a electric dryer would have on its circuit? I know I could check when I get home, but I am curious if I could plug in there if I make a E-Kettle. I know the dryer pulls about 5500w which is the same as an element I might get.

30A usually unless it is some kind of econo dryer.

I run my whole brewery on a 30A service.

I got everything minus the SS pipe stuff today. Looks like I will need some more wires to go from and to the controller, off to the store on the way home Wish me luck, I will probably come back with questions.

so I have wired up most of it and figured most of it out but my temp is reading like 34 which is way too hot for Celcius and way too cold for F, so what the heck is that plus it is sending to the output no matter if I am above or below the set point. Anyone else run into this?

I am using the following RTD sensor

http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...products_id=96

What Input Selection "Sn" do I use?

I also have the 1/4 DIN model http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...roducts_id=102

The red probes from the rtd go onto pins 14 and 15, and the blue one on 16.
It's a pt100 rtd so use SN=21.

good luck!

That's it, your the man. now I have to connect something to the SSR to make sure it's coming on and off like I think it should.
