Kal,
Excellent!!! Thank you for your reply and sharing with all. That is a great price on the pump (and a good description that addresses its use with your system) but I am going to go with the tri-clamp version (what you sell with custom weld job).
Cheers,
Robb

Sure! Keep in mind that on the hot side of the brewing process (what we use pumps for here) there's no benefit to sanitary (tri-clamp) fittings as everything is boiled. To each their own, but I prefer simpler to use quick disconnects. I only say this because I see more and more people going with harder to use/more expensive tri-clamp fittings for hoses on the boil side when they don't understand that there's no benefit (only added cost and difficulty of use). Cheers!

Kal

Kal-
I'm putting together my 240V control panel kit supplied with the adjustable 85-264V DC power supplies mounted on a DIN rail. Do you or the Spike lads have a wiring diagram to accommodate this? I can only find example diagrams with the older style doorbell transformer and AC/DC power supply.
cheers, Dan

Hi Dan,
Wiring diagrams are the same - the only difference is that the transformers and AC/DC power supplies are combined into one unit. There’s a 2-wire AC input and then a 2-wire DC output. An adjustable control sets the outlet voltage. The 2 AC power inputs are connected to 120V AC hot and neutral just like the doorbell transformer before, and then a DC output supplies +5DC (adjustable) and GND just like the 'regular' power supply. That's it.

Check out the printed addendum that was included in your kit too - it has pictures and further instructions.

Cheers!

Kal
