I am new to smoking and the forum, so bear with me if you can. I am doing a fridge conversion and am at the point where I need to get my electronics figured out. I am going to have a temperature controller hooked up to a ~1400 watt element. I will also have a convection fan as well as an inline exhaust fan to clear the smoke when it is time to open the door since I will be running this in the garage. Those will most likely be powered separately.
I did some research about temperature controllers and pulled the trigger and bought a Love 26150 temperature controller. It seems like it has a little more than necessary for this application, but I got it for a good price so I went ahead with it. I had intended to use a SSR, however after buying the controller I realized that the model I had gotten had an output that read "Proportional Current: 0-20 mA DC, scalable into 600 ohms maximum.". I am not very good with electronics, so I wanted to ask what exactly this means for me? So with this kind of output, what are my options for moving forward? I did try and research about this, but didn't find any solid information.
Here is the link to general specs and the manual:
Most of the information about specs and the wiring set up can be found within the first 6 pages of the manual.
Thank you in advance for any help,
