@ P-J, I was hoping you would see my post, I've been studying your diagrams for a while and they are a huge help. That's what I used as reference for mine, however I don't know why the size got so shrunking down after posting it. Sorry about that. The reason I posted the diagram was because I couldn't find any of yours that would work for my system, but wouldn't you know it I found one on here yesterday. (seriously I furiously searched for one for my application) Too funny. Anyway...
This is the exact one I'm going with
Except I'll be using a SYL-2362 and my heating element is a LWD [email protected]
, obviously wired for 110.
I like that the RIMS tube won't run unless the pump is on, but can be run independently, which I need. And also the light on the element telling you when it is on is cool and telling about how much heat is being lost in the mash tun and so forth.
I do have a couple of questions about it though.
Why do the switches have to be 2NO? I was going to go with 1NO 1NC, but seen you had this diagram using the 2NO.
Also can I use 12 gauge wire for everything? Including the PID/SSR control?
I was also planning on using this type of box to house eveything http://www.menards.com/main/electric...845-c-6429.htm
Do you see any problems there? Like maybe not being deep enough.
P-J thanks so much for your help on these forums, your work and time are greatly appreciated.
I can't wait to get me rig up and running with the pump and tube. I've used it in analog mode and keep telling myself more automation will be better, and I sure hope it is. I'll be sure to post pictures and hopefully explain what I made to help out any so called noobs. I was one and hopefully I'm far enough along in my brewing that I can help out others.
