So in the above schematic with a neutral and one hot 220v lead going to the PID, is the PID then powered by 110V (even though it does not have a second hot lead)? Could the PID alternatively be powered by two hot leads to 9 and 10?
If the PID is designed for 110v it could hurt it to power it with 220v. The diagram that was provided above is great for what you are trying to do. It provides 220v to the heating element and 110v to the controller. If you follow the line diagram you should be ok.

To hook it up without a neutral you will need a 220v PID. Then you will be able to hook it up from the available dryer plug.

I need a wiring too,please. I have 2 5500 watt heaters on 240.. I have two 1/2 hp pumps. These need to be controlled as two seperate pump and heater combos. I have 2 Sestos B2E timers and 2 Sestos D1S controllers.Timer 1 and controller 1 work together. Timer 1 will tell controller 1 when to shut down. It will also time a pump on simple on/off. I need an indicator light light between Timer 1 and pump. I need indicator light between Controller 1 and heater 1. Setup 2 is identical to Setup 1, mounted in same control panel. This is a biodiesel processor. Pump 1 and Heater 1 are on a 100 gal conical steel tank circulating from bottom to top. Pump 2 and Heater 2 are on a 55 gal drum circulating from bottom to top.

Sorry: Would like to help with a drawing - however - your build plan is based on Sestos components. I'm not familiar with them and it poses a sharp learning curve for me that I'm not willing to invest in.

Auber Instruments components - no problem..

Again, sorry...

I have a sestos timer in my build so I'm familiar with that. I can answer questions if you have them. As for the other components, I am not so sure of since I used auber pids

P-J, I bet you have a drawing already with Auber PIDs and timers that would get him most of the way there.

Very true - however the differences between the Auber and the Sestos is huge. Very difficult to even try to interpret a chang in a plan.

Understood. Just draw a cloud around each PID and timer and show the connections in and out of it, lol.

Incidentally, I'm kidding around, and don't expect you to draw anything you don't want to draw. You do enough around here already.

I cannot, for the love of God, understand why would anyone buy all this equipment without having a decent diagram on hand first...
