I haven't done a ton of reading on this system so far, but could this be used for a gas system as well? Is there simple on/off settings or is this more like a PID? I haven't seen anyone interested in using this system for gas.

I use it for gas. Right now the plan is to turn pumps on and off with a pair of SSRs and later add solenoid gas valves to turn burners on and off. Easily done with the BCS.
