So I've narrowed down my selection for a temp controller to either a LOVE or a Ranco. I'm leaning towards the Ranco ETC 111000 because they cost $50 and are relatively straight forward. However, I plan to use either the LOVE or Ranco on a HERMS someday and I have no idea which is best. So what are the Pros/Cons of each?
Also, can either of these be programed to control a gradual temp increase or decrease for either a HERMS or fermentation chamber? Thanks!
