I commend you on using dual controls I like redunantcy when dealing with heaters, and chillers. I also like your setup nice and clean looking.
Thanks. Currently I just have to rely on the Ranco, but in the near future I do plan on doing just this. I need to get the socket expansion for the Apex or another energy bar. Running 3 x 250w radiums and that draw, plus the chiller would put me just over the 15amp limit of the EB8.
