    VS: 120v/220V PID setup



    Has a 600c 4 inch probe type thermocouple or a ring eyelet (limited quanity) for use on a Master Caster
    Has a 25 amp SSR for long life
    I can preset the temp on the PID if you like. Currently set at 700f or 750f

    Sale price $125 shipped anywhere a flat rate box will go.

    I offer quantity discounts.
    5 x $10 off each
    10 x $15 off each
    Basically it's a group buy discount. Must have 5 or 10 buyers at the same time and must wait for parts to arrive (30 days)

    What is the output? Standard plug? More photos, I am very interested.

    VS: 120v PID setup



    Plugs into a standard 120 outlet and can control 15 amps which is big enough to handle a master caster / master pot.

    It can do 20 amps no problem but I have yet to see a pot require a 20 amp 120v outlet.
    The plug that you plug your pot into the PID is a 15amp style plug

    Forgive for asking but I don't see how the thermocouple hooks up. Does it plug in the side or top that is not shown in the photo? Will there be instructions to change the temperature if 700 is not quite the desired heat amount? - jeepyj

    I have a YouTube video on how to change it.
    https://youtu.be/1KsOk00zgZ0

    The picture I posted that shows the back is one that I had on my phone.
    The TC is hard wired in. It comes out where the power cables come out.
    To make it detachable would cost more money as its more work and more parts

    Bump-
    Will have a extra one ready to ship tomorrow afternoon.

    I also purchased a 1/32 DIN punch which will allow me to punch out a perfect hole for the PID so hopefully no more scratches on the front. The punch cost me $150 plus had to get a hydraulic punch handle for it too.
    Just trying to get a better looking produc and hopefully increase my production rate.

    I won the auction for the prototype of this unit. I am not a expert on these things, But it is well built with a Metal case that uses screws to hold it together. Doing any service work such as changing the thermocouple is a snap because of the design of the case. The PID and SSR are top quality components and should give a long trouble free service life. The small foot print takes up very little room in your casting area. In my opinion A very good bang for your buck. Hatch is very helpful if you need assistance. You cain't beat it with a stick.

    On the Master Caster there are two threaded holes on the handle side of the Pot at the base side.

    ooohhh, Well I learned something new today, like my ma told me I should. Thanks for showing me. I thought it might be for a PC oven use.

    You can use it for that as well.
    Get a self tapping screw and screw this to the wall or ceiling of the oven away from the heating element.

    The probe type would be idea as you just drill a hole thru the wall of the oven and side insert the probe in.

    Waiting on On/Off switches but will have 3 ready this coming week.

    I do offer this in a 220V version as well.
    It would have a 5 foot cable for you to hard wire or put your own plug on.
    You would make the connections inside the enclosure for your Pot wiring. Basically you would put one wire on the SSR output (a screw) and you would have 2 Crimp connectors that you would crimp the ground (if you have one) and the other Hot wire.

    I would be interested in a 220V model . What dimensions are they ?
    Thx Frank

    they are 6x4x2

    Very small footprint
    The PID is a 1/32 size. Its the smallest size they make.
    I personally have used this exact model PID since 2012 on my Automated master caster and in fact on every Automation Panel I have built that had the PID option.

    The PID can be powered 85~260VAC/50~60Hz.
    Basically its wired internally the same as the 120 models.
    It will have 14ga pig tale coming out.
    On the 220 models I put 2 romex connectors on the back.
    One will have the pig tale and the TC, the other empty for you to put your pot wiring.
