I was able to rewire my ace to an Inkbird paired to an auber relay and voltage regulator. Haven't had time to test it. Maybe I will this weekend. I started this project before smartpid. Might have done that if I had waited a bit longer. Anyways, I'll keep you guys posted

I emailed with Davide several times. He had a family emergency that threw things off a bit. He said schematics and step by steps are on the way. The Ace/Klarstein kit is a new approach with previous being just the controller. He said he also working on improvements to the “cloud” and app side of things. Super responsive.

This is basically how I have mine wired. Relays are wired in series and heater element is wired in parallel. Switches and fuses removed for simplicity

I think that for SSRs rated at 25A working at about 10-15A you're at the edge of requiring a heat sink for them. From the pics it looks like you aren't using any. If that's so, be careful.

Heat sink on both SSR and SSVR Ordered stuff for a fan already.
