    Pid mounting

    Which pid has the best mounting supports. Most I have used have plastic inserts to hold them and they don't work very well. I have seen some that actually have a socket mounted that the pid can be removed. Does anyone know where to get those reasonable priced or a better mounting? Thanks

    PID and Variable Relay

    5500 watt 12ga wire?
