Sawdustguy, that is a great option, do you see any problem with the ignition system signals, current, etc. interfearing with the electric components in the main control box?
The gas is digital, either on or off. The PID will start cutting the gas off for seconds at a time as it approaches the set point. The pulse period is proportional to the distance from the set point. Of course, you have to have a pilot light.

Thanks Ricand for clearing that up. From prior posts I got confused on the pulsing part, I thought this was more for an electric element and the pulsing slowly adjusting the heater element, making the power to the element get less or more intense without shutting it completely off, as it sensed the set points. I could not picture how it could do that with gas, as the valve is either on or off. This automation stuff is all new to me...... I usually brew manually.

I have used this configuration sucessfully with (2) Auber PID's but I was very careful with grounding and kept the S8610U away from the control panel.

Thanks Guy for replying, I will keep that in mind. I think I am leaning toward not having an automatic iginition system and just going with the pilot light and thermocouple for safety.

That will work too.
