    VS: 120v/220V PID setup



    Not the best picture.

    I took it earlier and the lighting wasn't best.

    Basically get a piece of solid 14 ga wire.
    Wrap it four times around the probe as tight as you can.
    Take the two ends and crimp into a ring terminal.
    Mount under one of the existing screws that are at the top as shown in picture.

    The probe is in the pot. What you are looking at is the top part of the probe sticking out.
    If you look at my first post on this listing you will see a probe in a cup of ICE water.
    If you look at the above picture, you are looking at just the top. Basically were the threads are.
    The probe I used above was a different style that wasn't threaded.
    But YES the probe goes in the lead

    So this is just to hold the probe in place? Correct? Sorry, The picture is hard to make out.

    Yes, just to hold the probe in place.

    It wasn't the best lighting. I will try and get a better picture tomorrow so you get a better idea

    Will the temperature got down to like 150 F or 160 F for use on a heating element on an electric smoker?

    Sure.
    These are rated based on the thermocouple.
    I have the following thermocouples to choose from
    4 inch probe (400c & 700c)
    3/8 diam ring (600c)
    Small ring (for master caster 700c)
    6mm threaded (400c for lube heaters)

    If your going to use a probe and keep it below 700f, I can knock $5 off and supply you with a 750f max probe instead of the normal one which is rated over 1000f

    Is there any concern with leaving the probe in the lead when shutting down the pot? I leave my thermometer in the pot at all times. I’d like to leave the probe in as well provided it wouldn’t damage it.

    Have two 120V PID setups boxed up ready to go.
    These are the standard sets with the high temp probe.

    I have 2 standard 120v units ready to ship.
    Will have another one ready tomorrow.
    Next week I will have 5 more units ready.
    Enclosures came in today.

    Very nice work! Looks like the kind of quality product we once could rely on, here in the good old USA.

    I'll take one. PM on the way.

    A quick question on mounting on the 4-20: is it best that the probe stand away from the side wall and base of the pot?

    TIA,

    Kevin C
