It’s built and running. No fan yet and based on my limited experience I don’t think I need one. Currently I have the PID thermocouple hanging above a lamp in the basement and a digital remote thermometer (Inkbird) probe between the cooling fins on the heatsink. The heatsink temperature started at 68F and has climbed to 70F over a two hour period and has been holding steady at 70F.
I hit the “Set” button once and I get A some spaces then fluctuating numbers ranging from 0 to 100. I’m guessing the A= Amps and the constantly changing numbers are a % of Amps being drawn?
Zero heat buildup in the heatsink playing in my basement with a SV value of 70F. Once I rewire my MES and start upping the SV to say 225F will the heatsink temperatures start rising?
I have a lighted on/off 3 pole switch. Pole 1 and 2 are hot in and hot out, pole number 3 has nothing hooked up yet. What should be hooked up to pole 3 to get the internal switch lamp to light? Neutral?
Thanks for your input.
