Subject: PID on a Dalla Corte Super Mini? Help
 

Now that I have fixed my problem with the Mater XP700 pressurestat, figured it was a good time to address doing the PID mod on this machine I have been intending to do.

Below I posted a photo of how the unit is going to be externally mounted. I decided to do it in a way that was completely reversible, if necessary. Does anybody here have any experience with doing this mod on a Dalla Corte? I am trying to figure out a good thermocouple solution and a way to by-pass the current temp adjustment pot. I want to be as prepared as I can with a plan and the necessary parts, so I can minimize the machine's downtime. The machine's current setup has a temp probe in the brew boiler. I am assuming it would be way to convenient for that to work with the PID. Life never seems to work that easily. So I am wondering whether a thermocouple attached to the boiler (either at a fitting or adhesive) would work well. And leave the current probe in place and just disconnect it.

Thanks for any help you can be.
Rik
