With the help of Dave (dward51), I've got the PID assembled and functioning. My goal today is to get it connected to the element and get some heat going?
I got the PID, SSR and thermocouple last week and spent about 2 days figuring it all out. WARNING: If you purchase the el-cheapo PID's on ebay, they require some modifications before they'll function as needed. I had to open up the case and remove a mechanical relay that "supposedly" controls the SSR...I added 2 jumpers to the board and it seems to be functioning? I will most likely order an Auberin's one in the near future as my gut is this one will take a dump...time will tell?
I did install a voltage transformer for the computer fan as it runs on 12v and very low amperage (.68). I used some SS screen/mesh I had from the 2 towers posted in this thread...
Here's the Cantex box I mounted everything in
The circuit board relay removal and jumper modification
I'll have more pics shortly!
