I am in the process of building an electric smoker and know nothing about PID controllers. I've done a lot of reading & searching but I don't think I understand everything I know about PID's. Curious if this one is usable to run a 3500w 240v broiler element that I have on hand and I'm planning on using, might be over kill but it's what I have. The PID in question is a mypin brand, don't know if that's good, bad, or otherwise but it fits my budget and has decent online reviews. Sorry for the length of the post but I didn't know what might be relevant. Thanks for any input. Jack
Here are the specs.
This is a set of temperature controller TA7-SNR,PT100 and solid state relay-SSR-25DA. The dual line display universal digital programmable temperature controller supports many types of thermocouple sensor. It can also worked as simple digital adjustor.
- Compact design, great form-factor to be included/build-in to your product.
- One key operation, Auto-tuning PID control.Easy operation,Reliable performance
- Input: TC(K、J、S、E)/ RTD（Pt100、CU50）universal input, (24V/30mA supply available for standard transmitter）
- P, I, d, controlling period, digital filter coefficient, and more… (for control theory experts only)
- SSR control ready to connect external Solid State Relay to handle High current.
