Do you have something like that worked up?
Temp probe wiring is really covered in the PID manual. With that said:

Setup for a RTD probe.



Setup for a type K probe.

Would this be an acceptable set-up for a PID controlled BIAB setup?
That's fine. I see no problem in doing it that way.

What is the difference between the 2352 and the 2362 PIDs and which one is better? I am doing a 240V HLT and have 45A SSrs. Thanks

Either one will work. The difference? The SYL-2352 PID uses "fuzzy logic" for its temperature control which provides better accuracy. Take a look at the manuals for each one for a better understanding.

Another quick question (and sorry to Hi-jack GRHunter!):

What plugs are best?

I was thinking either NEMA L6-30, NEMA 10-30, or NEMA 14-40 without using the neutral (are any of these unacceptable?) from element to panel and then a standard 4 wire plug (ala The Electric Brewery) from panel (hardwired) to 240v 30am GFCI receptacle.

the NEMA 10-30 and 14-40 are likely the cheapest options. Are they kosher though.....

Reason: updated plug from element

Thanks for posting guys! I'm looking to do the same thing, a 5500k element, 240v, 30A, single pump, single PID, with dual temp probes (one for BK/HLT, one for MT) which all seems workable from some of PJ's diagrams (thanks, btw! Your work is astounding.) My only alteration is I want a secondary display to continually show the temp in the MT. I'll be using my old IC as the HERM coil, submerged in the BK/HLT, which will be controlled by the PID. In my head it's a simple on/of, PID display, secondary display, button for the element, button for the pump, big ol' E-stop button. Simple, sleek, small. Any suggestions?

Edit:
I've been looking at that diagram you linked to, P-J, for a while now. What I can figure for the element is simply eliminate the dual switch for the element in favor of a single switch, and cut out one of the pumps. That would take care of everything except the secondary display and the e-stop. What would you do to rig those into the existing diagrams?

Is this what you are looking for?

BTW: That will all fit in the Auber Instruments Project Box. Place the SYL- 1512 under the cutout for the SYL-2352.

Though note the temp probe must remain connected to the PID - even when running in manual output mode for the boil.

They have slightly different feature sets. You may want to read through the spec sheets and see which you like more.

2362 supports SSR and relay outputs, has a limit operating mode, and is closer to a "traditional" PID (though it does have a configurable AI).

2352 is SSR only, and has a more sophisticated AI. It also uses an entirely different value for P (not proportional band) so experienced PID users may find it a bit strange.

IMO, the 2352 is probably better for the "auto-tune and forget" crowd who don't want to learn (or mess with) PID operation. Folks more comfortable with PIDs will probably prefer the 2362 which is easier to tweak into a critically damped system (for mash temp control).

jhollist, Do you have a higher resolution copy of this image? This is much closer to the design I am leaning towards; however, I will be using a 120v setup with 2000w element.

Thanks.
