I see machine screws used to mount the contactor and bus bar to the Auber box. Any issue with using JB Weld to mount them to the inside of a structural foam water resistant tool box?

It would be a pain in the neck if you ever had to replace a component, or move one temporariliy to get into a tight space. Why not use a sheet of plastic or metal as a backplate for mounting the componenets?

Good call--didn't think about replacing a part. Also, I need to figure a way to mount the heat sink metal to metal.

Many thanks to P-J for the many diagrams he's made for all of the brewers looking to go electric.

My question, as this is my first foray with contactors: is this wired correctly per the original 120v diagram P-J posted (picture #2)?

Hot on the bottom goes to the element. Hot on the top goes to the SSR. I have not wired the hot to the switch yet.

Thanks for the help.

Rigging up the coil and i keep blowing a fuse. I hooked up mine differently than the pictures but I cant quite tell how different. I have one side with the 8 plugs on it that does not have any on it. Still a little confused. Anyone have a link or a suggestion as to how I can get it correct? I thought I was doing this right from the schematic but I guess not, As i keep tripping the breaker.

Thanks for any help.

The Imp

Figured It out... Just like the picture above just need the hot on the left side to go to the switch. Working great. Thanks for all the hard work that everyone has put into this thread to make it possible for all of us.

Cheers
