    Help with auber PID and Honeywell valve

    I am finishing up the wiring for a Brutus type system, but am having problems getting the PIDs to fire the burners. I have two Auber syl-2362 PIDs hooked up to two honeywell vr8200 valves. Everything is controlled by a three way selector switch (hand/off/auto). The burners work great with the...

    Single Tier Brutus Clone.....Another One!

    Originally all of the switches were purchased from pioneer breaker. I made a few mistakes on switch power ratings and selector choices, so I had to change a few out. I purchased the new switches from Automation Direct. It just happens that Automation Direct's headquarters is about 45min from...

    The control panel is coming along nicely. I had to make a few last minute switch changes, but everything should be good now.

    Finally got the control panel started! The wiring is little intimidating, but hopefully I can get started in the next couple days. Does anyone by chance have a wiring diagram for a similar setup? I can't seem to find one..

    As long as your burners are not being smothered, then you should be fine ( somebody correct me if I am wrong). The stand looks great!

    Does anyone have any recommendations for the burner connections? I looked online for a solution but came up empty handed. If I found a 3/8 Flared female to 1/2" flared male I could get rid of all of those ridiculous fittings...I am not apposed to getting rid of the yellow flex line either.

    I have started to tackle the electrical side of the build. I made the temp probes a few days back (PITA...for me at least. Those connections are tiny!). Today I added another couple feet to the pump cords and replaced the plugs with NEMA L5-15 twist lock electrical plug, and wrapped the cords...

    That's actually my older boxer Hendrix. He looks a little small in that pick, but he's about 70lbs or so. He is the build supervisor! I have been looking at different options for this. I was hoping the current setup would allow enough airflow through the burner mounts. Once everything is up...

    The casters are from caster city, they are rated for 300lbs each, 3" wheels, and they have expanding rubber stems. The stems fit into the 2x2 stainless tubing and "expand" as they are tightened down. I don't have the exact parts number, but you can get on there and build yours to your exact needs.

    The control panel build and wiring is underway. I have to order a few more parts, but hopefully by later this week/weekend I will have some finished work to show. I will also try and gather a full build parts list, blueprints, sources, etc. Oh, and a huge thanks to all of these guys for...

    The stand has been at the house for a few months now, It has costed much more then I anticipated! But we are counting on the stand to supply the beer for our wedding in a few months, so its crunch time. Yesterday I added the aluminum diamond plate shelf and valve covers.

    I have spent a lot of time following this forum and have been very inspired by many of your builds. I thought it was only fair that I document my build and answer any questions along the way. I will also be asking many questions myself! So lets get started:rockin: Oh and sorry for the...
