    Need help designing an electric brew rig

    Yessir, I can see why they call you Mr Wizard! I can't quite make out the details, is there any possible way to enlarge it? I am so happy to have this,so please don't go through too much more effort on my behalf. And yes, i believe my heaters are the same as you all ,240 volt. Cannot stand dry...

    Need help designing an electric brew rig

    So if you had a super quick wiring diagram for my setup that would be more than amazing.

    Need help designing an electric brew rig

    Awesome,sir! That's exactly what i wanted to hear! Everyone else here was telling me i could not use the timer to control my pump. Mounted in one control panel will be 2 Sestos D1S's, 2 Sestos B2E's, hopefully 2 240LED's to indicate element operation, and 2 120volt green lights to indicate pump...

    need help with pid!

    I like the diagram (mostly because i can understand it), but i don't see where you are tying in the B2E. Is it coming into terminal 3?

    So in theory, could not my Sestos B2E alarm trigger a relay to open and close a switch to a 1/2 hp pump? Even if i coupled the timer to an SSR?

    Kal clone with Sestos components, diagram help.

    So the timer can control both of the pids? The timer alarm out terminal 7 routes through switches to input terminal 11? When timer goes off, it kills heater in one of the controllers? Also, i want to time a pump to shut off.

    Thank you,sir. I've searched high and low with little success. With my Sestos timers, I'm thinking i can operate a relay to time my pumps. With the other output would it be better to wire it directly into the temp controller or have a relay or switch between the temp controller and it's power...

    Well, thx anyway. I realize that being biodiesel this project may be out of your normal parameters. I do have a few SSR's for 25A and 40A. The flow switch does seem like a good idea. But i totally believe there's gotta be someone on this forum that can picture what i need to accomplish and offer...

    I need a single PID, single element diagram

    I need a wiring too,please. I have 2 5500 watt heaters on 240.. I have two 1/2 hp pumps. These need to be controlled as two seperate pump and heater combos. I have 2 Sestos B2E timers and 2 Sestos D1S controllers.Timer 1 and controller 1 work together. Timer 1 will tell controller 1 when to...

    What's the reason you all seem to prefer Auber over Sestos? It seems Sestos looks nicer.

    My guess is that even with 2 twin timers, i cannot still have 'heating element on' light and 'pump on' light' because i will be using the alarm outs for other purposes.

    need help with pid!

    Yes, that's pretty much what i need. PID 1 controls temps on tank 1. PID 2 controls temps on tank 2. Timer 1 to shut off pump 1 and maybe second alarm to cut power to heater 1? And tre same exact thing for setup 2. I believe the Sestos have powet off memory. If it's not too much trouble,could...

    Okay, i (biodiesel guy) need to lean on the expertise of you home brewer guys. Our guys don't even know about PID yet! I have a 200 gal conical tank that circulates bottom to top. It has a 1/2hp pump and flows through an external steel box that contains a 5500 watt heater. I also use a 55gal...

    I just bought 2 Sestos temp controllers with 25A ssr's and 4 Sestos Twin timers. Want to know how i can set them up. I want one temp controller on each heater. I want the timers to control the timing on the heaters and on the two circulation pumps.
