    Has anyone used a double power point mounted in their box with the stc 1000 to eliminate the need for the heat and cool cables hanging out?

    Seems like a good idea and would neaten it up a bit.

    I used panel mount power points. Heat on one side cool on the other. About $7 from jaycar.

    Looks good. Would there be any problem being able to switch it off at the power point if I went that way?

    Looked at doing that myself, only problem is the double power point has one power source. You can't separate the outputs. You could use two single power points though. I ended up just putting a on/off switch on the 240vac input.

    Three seems high. If your probe is attached to the fermenter and insulated from the ambient temp of your ferm fridge, I don't see why a 1C differential would be an issue. Never was for me.

    I ordered an "STC-1000" off ebay and instead received a RC-316M which I can not find much info about.
    Looks the exact same as an STC1000 but different wiring, I've put together an STC1000 without issue following diagrams but not sure about this.

    This is the wiring diagram, only need cooling function.

    Edit:
    This is my interpretation:

    Look at the brewpiless as an alternative to the stc. You can control and monitor temps over network
