I have an electric HERMS build thread... it has a parts list with some pretty common components. It would be best to familiarize yourself with the components and what they do before embarking on such a build...

Well you will need the Love controllers, some SSRs, heat skinks, wire of various guages to fulfill the various amperage needs in the control panel.

If you intend to use the Love controllers for burner control, you will also be looking at some Asco gas solenoid valves, spark ignitors or standing pilots... etc.

To be certain, you will have to give much more information about how things will be fired, monitored, controlled etc...
