    Build my first single element panel

    No I appreciate it. But that isn't a L6-30 plugin. It is a locking California style CS 6364. The angle of the pic makes it look like that. The plug has the ground on the side.

    BruControl: Brewery control & automation software

    Oh i understand. And i have read your HERMS discussion and i tend to agree. At the stage im in, im trying to figure out if i could just tune a manual valve on my RIMS output to limit flow to a certain temp. I have read you use flowmeters and proportional valves and i will go to that at some...

    Build my first single element panel

    So i was always concerned about the heat. I was planning on shifting the SSR down a bit and wiring a small fan with vent holes at the top. I didnt realize the heat sink was only rated for 15 amps.... ill reconfigure. I do have the large 40amp heat sink from auberins i can upgrade too. I didnt...

    BruControl: Brewery control & automation software

    Right so with you just wiring them all together, you are just utilizing the ULWD of the element. And not using thing ability to fire all 4 for heating strike water, and then switching to 1 for mash temp stability. Ill probably end up ordering one at some point.

    Build my first single element panel

    I used doug's schematic and added some bells and whistles. Can switch between 240 and 120. I took this picture before i turned it on and i had the LCD upside down. And then i moved the current meter down to the Line1(red) between the inlet and the contactor so i was accounting for the current...

    Ok I did that and everything came back on like normal. I guess it needed that reboot after the reset. We'll see if it stays running. Thanks

    Yea I knew where the eeprom reset was. I did that, shut the controller down for a while then reinstalled everything. Let's see if it bugs out again.

    Help me think through my electric panel design

    My long term goal is to build a full brucontrol semi automated panel that will control 3 heating elements(2 being operable at once). But I'm ready to get into stepped mashing now. So I want to build a bare bones PID controller to control a single element. I already have a 50 amp GFCI breaker...

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    Yes you can use an esp8266 built into a controller to control a fermentation chamber to control temp while it is tracking the SG with a tilt. You want to go read both build threads from thorrak day tripper and lbusy.

    Fermentrack: Fermentation monitoring & BrewPi-www Replacement for Raspberry Pi

    I see it. Just updated both of mine to 0.2.12. Have y'all experienced when you add a new controller, it loses connection to the other? And you have to restart the pi to get it to connect again? It just happened to me.
