UPDATE: This wiring diagram has gone through a few different revisions since this thread had started...mainly around the wiring of the switches. I have updated the OP with the latest (and hopefully) final diagram (from post #17).

I am in the process of moving from propane to electric. P-J has been an incredible help (behind the scenes) with the control panel wiring. I thought that there may be others out there that want to build a similiar system so I figured I would post the wiring diagram that P-J provided to me (hope you don't mind P-J).

BIAB, 5500W, Single Vessel, Simgle Pump with these illuminated switches from Auberins: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...d65247c34d338a



I know I thanked you many times via PM P-J, but, once again...THANK YOU!!!

John

This is exactly what i have been looking for.

Did he also supply you with his brew parts order list for this?

Are you planning on recirculating during the mash with your pump?

Brew parts as in the control panel parts? Or actual kettle, pump, etc.?

Yep...I plan on recircing during the entire length of the mash.

P-J,

In our conversations I had asked you where I need to have 10ga wire and you answereed:

Quote:
You will need to use #10 wire for the power going to the element through the SSR & contactor. All of the balance of the wiring can be done with #14 wire.
Can you take a quick look at the moddified diagram below and let me know if I missed any?



Thanks!

John

That's a great setup! I like it a lot and it's similar to Psych's but with a pump, which is what I'm planning on using (eventually).

I just have to get on the horse and start ordering parts. What were you going to use for an enclosure?

I am using the project box on Auberins: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...cf800855feaee4

It is is a bit tight but since I don't have too many things going on, the space is managable. It is also nice because it already has the hole for the PID cut out. The only add shaped hole I will need to cut now is for the outlet for the pump.

These are the illuminated switches: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?ma...cf800855feaee4

They are a bit pricey but I like 'em!! I just cut the holes and mounted them a few minutes ago.

Make it easy on yourself and use this type outlet:



All you need to do is drill or punch a round hole.
