I finally successfully wired up my countertop brutus 20 control box. I went to auto tune it today and the temperature readings were all over the place.

I was comparing the reading on the PID to a thermometer. The PID started out about 10 degrees high. As it heated up the temperatures got closer, but then the PID was not changing as fast as the water temperature. The PID was reading very low. Then it stopped rising at about 112-113 even though the water temperature was around 160.

This is the sensor I have: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=107

This is the PID: http://www.auberins.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=106

Any ideas?

Thanks,
J

I would contact auberins... They have great support from what I'm told so might as well use it.

I figured it. I guess reading manuals is helpful after all
