Hi Ė I have admired P-Jís diagrams for some time and decided to go for it. But of course, my build will be slightly different. I am using three 12V GreatBrewHe.com pumps controlled by PWM motor controllers. I also have 3 heater element outputs, two controlled by Auberdine SYL-2352 controllers and one controlled by the SYL-2352P with the Ramp/Soak capability (I want to also be able to control a kiln with it). When I control the kiln, the ĎRIMS-Kilní output will be 240V and the BK and HTL elements are disabled. When I run the controller for brewing, the BK and HTL outputs are enabled and the 'RIMS-Kiln' output is switched to 120v. With a 4500W-240V RIMS element running at 120V, the effective power for the RIMs is 1375 watts. I am powering the whole thing through a 50 Amp GFCI spa breaker box.
I donít know what program P-J uses, so I cut/pasted in Paint to make the changes I wanted. However I would love to get feedback on it. Does anyone see things I missed???
P-J, if you see this, THANK YOU! Your postings are a great help to me and others. I hope you do not mind that I used your designs as my starting point. And anything you can add is appreciated.
Here is my proposed design. Thanks in advance to everyone for your help.
