swede, interesting stuff. Thanks!

I got an email from the Rockler tech guy. He didn't know too much, but dug up that it's a silicon controlled rectifier (SCR). Did some google searching, but much of it is over my head. Anyone got the layman's version of how this applies to controlling a heating element?

A SCR is a thyristor. It only allows current to flow when voltage is applied to the gate. Some SSR use SCR's if this makes any sense. Pretty much its a "relay" with no moving parts that switches very fast to control a cycle. Same concept as using a SSR.
