Plywood Smoker with PID Controller - Page 2

Either way I think it is important that I use a shorter cord. I didn't really realize the drop that I was seeing across the cord. Here is a chart that breaks it out.

I'm loosing 1.5 - 4 Volts across the 40ft cord when I should be loosing less than 1.0 volts.

Also, I have the same 1000W coil for my electric UDS rig (It can get my 55 Gal Drum with reflectix up to 260F) and word to the wise, theres an ambiant heat fuse in the thing that will burn out when you hit 200 or so.  pull back the insulation on the wire leads of that fuse and twist it together to bypass the fuse.  That will make more sense when you open it up. drool.gif
