I have an EBAY one, i have only just recently setup for my HLT. I can't help with the ins and outs of the settings but here is a manual that might help. I have only done 1 brew so far and just used Auto-Tuning function.

Hi spog

some of those ebay pid's are the same as auberins when it comes to programming, but quite often the wiring is slightly different. I think this covers their arse for patent etc.
Have a look at these instructions which apply to the auberins unit.

I read on some yanky sites that this is how they program the chinese pids.

Cheers

cheers, dicko will check it out.
i found a link on brew adelaide (i remembered the site ) its a manual for pid controllers for expresso machines,the pid is similar to mine.
i think mine is a knock off as it has no manufacturers name....cheers...spog....

PID Programming

I had the auberins ramp/ soak/ kiln with ssr output, model: SYL-2352P.
My Rims would ramp at a speed of 1degC per minute.

For a protein rest, sacc rest & mashout based on my ramp speed, programming would look like this.
C1: 55, t1: 5 ( mash in ) – holds 55deg for
5mins

C2: 55, t2: 10 ( protein rest ) – holds 55deg for 10mins

C3: 55, t3: 11 ( ramp time from 55 to 66 – 1degC per minute )

C4: 66, t4: 60 ( sacc rest time )

C5: 66, t5: 12 ( ramp time from 66 to 78 – 1degC per minute )

C6: 78, t6: 10 ( mash out ) – holds 78deg for 10mins

C7: 78, t0 ( end of programme )

I was using gas for my
HLT heating so when transferring mash in water to the mash tun, if I have
missed my mash in temp all I do is this.
Press the down arrow to run the programme. Once
running, hold down the arrow again till hold is displayed. The temp will ramp
to your set 55deg but your timer won't start. Once at desired temp, hold down
arrow again, run will show on PID & away you go.

You can program it this way so that the temp holds or heats up to 55°C while you mash in, or are preparing.
When you've finished, hold down to take it off the hold step and it will continue the program at C2.

C1: 55, t1: 0 ( mash in ) – holds 55deg

C2: 55, t2: 10 ( protein rest ) – holds 55deg for 10mins
