Any one use these SSR in their builds with a Auber SYL-2352?
And what about these RTD?

Just wondering how they perform. Or if you're having good luck with a part that you would have paid much more for if you'd bought it from Auberins or automation direct then I'd like hear about that too.

I bought two of these Chinese ones and they've been working perfectly: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Solid-State-...item256a3dec29

Use these rtd's www.ebay.com/itm/200620995759
they are probably $60 sensors and are shipped from USA. It seems they are surplus. Very cheap at only $10. If you get them could you order 1 extra for me to save on shipping. I bought 2 but should have bought 3. I have one of those Chinese rtd's with the large terminal head Like you posted a link to but I don't like it it's too bulky.
This is the ssr I bought
www.ebay.com/itm/300634711181
buy from the same seller he shipped very quick. I got it from china in 7 days. I bought stuff from another seller in china and it took a month. I also got a tracking number to track it all the way from china for my ssr.
Buy one from the same seller but without the heatsink. I have an extra one I didn't use the one that it came with. If you only have one ssr I have a better option for a heatsink. I have one extra copper heatsink from an old PC. It's like 2 pounds of copper it works much better than the aluminum one. I did a test run last night and the copper heat sink worked great.

That looks like a nice temp probe. I like the fact that it has the armored cable. Could you give us more details on it? Like; how long is the probe, what's the thread size, does the wire disconnect from the probe, does it work with Auber's PID?

Thanks!

I have bought 2 of those SSRs from china. One failed, one worked. IMHO, it's no different from buying a cheap SSR from the US, as most of those are imported from China. If you want a good SSR, you want to spend more on a quality one, (I think OMRON makes decent ones...and there are some that are always recommended by the pros on here, but the name escapes me).

I have that exact RTD. It's a beast, love it. I ended up placing an XLR connector in it, (where the wires normally come out), so I can disconnect it from my CP at the kettle, so when I move my kettle I don't have a wire hanging.

It's a standard pt100 rtd so it works fine with the auber pid. It's all stainless, 6" probe 1/2"npt threads. The probe is adjustable you can make the probe anywhere from 1" to the full 6". The armored cable is probably stainless and very strong, it's 12 feet long. I cut mine to 8 feet. I just added a xlr on the end I didn't mind the cord hanging from the kettle.

Hmmm, decisions, decisions.

I like the fact that the Auber has the connector on the probe end and that it's 1/4" thread. So it will work well with Bobby's sight glass.

On the other hand, the eBay one has a great price, 6" probe, and armored cable. I could always add a connector and use Bargainfittings sight glass.

Would this work with one of Bobby's sightglass combo that has a T on it?
