Bottom line? IMHO - You have the wrong PID for the application that you are trying to accomplish.
Thanks PJ! I would've spent another day trying to troubleshoot this in vain.
I never thought for a second that an Auber PID controller existed that couldn't control an external SSR....
I spent a long time with both the 2352 and the 2372 spec sheets up side-by-side and the conclusion that I came to was that for $2 extra that the 2372 included an extra built-in 2amp capable SSR; I had no idea what I might eventually use that "extra" capability for, but thought that it might come in handy. -The note about it not working with Auber's SSRs or more than 300 watts of power, I thought was an incompatibility with AUBER's specific SSRs based upon the way that it was worded; obviously if it's only a 2 amp built-in SSR the built-in SSR can't handle much wattage...
No brewing for me for a while longer while I try to exchange this for the 2352...
Again, I think I'm glad I paid a little extra and went with Auber for the support as it's dumb moves like this that can be costly if you don't have good support...
*Sigh, why can I only learn the hard way?*
