Hi Guys,
I need this gone so I'm pricing it for a quick sale....Details below


240V/5500Watt System
-2 PIDs (Omega brand) (one for controlling the heatstick, the other for monitoring a second temp. reading)
-Capable of firing 1 5500 watt heating element, but can easily be upgraded to control two.
-K type Thermocouplers included
-Output for 1 heating element and for 1 pump (120V)
-Panel is made of steel as shown in the pictures.
-Simple operation. PIDs are turned on/off with a flip of a switch. There is a seperate switch for turning the pump on/off
-Can be used to control a RIMS or HERMS set up. I used it as a HERMS controller and it did an excellent job! It is able to maintain temps PERFECTLY at whatever mash temp you desire
-As can be seen in the photo, there is plenty of room inside the panel to add a second SSR and heatsink for controlling another heating element for a boil kettle if desired

INCLUDED:
Control panel as shown, 2 Thermocouplers with easy disconnects, cords with plugs for the heating element and a pump.
Detailed instruction manual with original documents for the PIDs and all electric components and instructions on how it works
Hooks up to a standard 30A/240V outlet (cord attached and included)

$175 plus shipping. Thanks!

I'd like a pic, and better understanding, too. I'm looking to upgrade to HERMS. If I bought this, what else would I need to transition? Thanks

I'm not sure why my picture is not showing above?

To use this for RIMS or HERMS you would simply need to have either a RIMS tube with a heating element or a HERMS vessel (HLT with a heating element inside and recirculation plumbing)

If you wanted to use this for your boiling you would only need to install a heating element into your boil kettle.

You would need a different cord to plug into a 120v outlet. I'm not sure what internal components would need to be changed though.
Hey, by the way, I used to live in Madison Heights.

Fair enough. Would be a bit of work then. So its not for me.

GLWS

Small world...It's not a bad place to live and has some close homebrew shops and microbreweries.
