Re: SSR heating control
- The SSR comes with a 500KOhm variable resistor (pot). The control bit
is integrated with the SSR, so all you do is dial up the desired
output on the variable resistor. The kit comes with it and a neat
little faceplate with a 0-100 scale.

though. Did I read your info right, as you unit sounds more like
what i require. I'm running 2 elements a 1380 w and an 1800 w. I
have been disconnecting the 1800 w, when I get up to temp. I would
much prefer to do simular to what you have done and have some sort of
switching built in. Is it possible to get a drawing of the circuits
that you use I'm no sparky but I do have a friend who is and may be
able to build one for me. I can't see any photo's of yours as the
folder you suggest is empty.
