Electrickery.

Got enough bits arrive to tempt me into beginning to mark up my control panel. I did enough of that this evening to ensure I don't do a single bit of cutting until I have absolutely every piece of the puzzle.

My control box is just so tight that I had to adjust things like the position of the far right timer because it might hit the side of the box as the door swings shut. And the excessively large machanical relays within have to be placed very carefully so as to avoid the rather long PIDs.

Measure twice, cut once as the saying goes.

Cheers.

Coming along very nicely :)

I came across this yesterday—not sure if you've seen it, might be up your alley: http://imgur.com/a/TR70g

Man those relays are massive,

They are gigantic.
I bought 80A ones and they sent 120s, not sure if there would have been any difference in size but gee these ones are huge.
It's actually quite a pain to position them around the pids, relay + pid is far wider than the box.

Why 80's Barry, were they cheaper?

Comment by Barry on April 13, 2014 at 9:02am
Nah they were just all I found on aliexpress in single items with no shipping, covering the amperage I need with 240V coils. Actually only need 25A eh.
