I”m getting ready to start the build-out phase of my 5bbl brewpub project. I plan to use Wi-Fi Inkbirds for tank control. I will be starting with 8 tank controllers, eventually expanding to 13. Each solenoid pulls 0.8 amps. Does anyone know what the controller itself pulls? Inkbird info email hasn’t seen fit to answer that question.

The reason I ask is that amps are in short supply in my project, and if I can run 13 solenoids and controllers on a 15A circuit (instead of a 20A) it helps.

Thanks, y’all, I’ll prolly have more questions as I go. Feel like I’m drinking from the firehose.
