Panel Build

Post by nibber » Wed Apr 08, 2020 4:58 pm

Decided to build my own electric brewery panel.
Found a perfect little donor panel on an auction site it was an old sewage twin pump control panel.
Just laying stuff out at the moment pid controllers to be added and a load of other gear contactors,pump relays etc, will gut the inside and start over again all the gear inside is 24 volt.
Proper engraved labels to be added later.
A nice little project to work on under the current difficult times. :mrgreen:

Was looking at getting the Inkbird-ITC100VH-K with 40A SSR’S + pt100 probes.
Has anyone used the Berme or Rex pid’s? they are about 1/3 of the price of the Inkbirds.
Unsure quality wise on the cheaper alternatives. :mrgreen:

Nice! I started buying components for mine but now don’t have the funds to put it together being furloughed ect. I’ll be following this with interest!
Cheers and gone,

The Inkbird pid controllers and ssr’s and Inkbird timer have arrived, rough layout on the panel.
Large heatsink at top of photo is to be mounted on the top of the panel (Hole to be cut) and ssr’s fitted to it with thermal compound.
Time to start cutting holes! :mrgreen:
