Subject: Which PID?
I'm seriously considering buying a PID kit from Jim Gallt. I'm not
sure which one I want. I'm leaning towards the SD3C, but I'd like to
know what its capabilities are compared to the 935. I like the fact
that the 935 can also act as a shot timer that automatically shuts the
pump down at a preset time. If the SD3C has this capability it would
make it a clear winner. Can Jim or anybody else who knows help me out
with this?

Don't worry about a timer. Get a clock or a watch with a second hand.
I can attest personally to the quality of Jim's kits, and
instructions. I've been meaning to write a post since installing his
kit in December.

To be effective a shot timer has to measure the water volume, not
time.

Both variables are of equal importance. A shot timer by definition,
measures the lenght of time to pull a shot, and can be integrated into
a machine by use of a potentiometer, or an exterior device can be
used.
Shot volume can be measured internally by a flowmeter or easily with a
shot glass.
If one is far enough out of balance with the other, the coffee fails
to be optimal.

Jim,

I just sent a note through your site's system. Hopefully it got to you.

No timer on the SD3C's we stock (I think it might be available as an
option on the SD31, but would have to check to be sure). Contact me
through our web site if you'd like more info.

Howdy Jim!
Are the SD3C & 935 the same exact dimensions? If the SD3C were a *tad*
shorter or had connections at the top rather than the back it would fit my
needs better.

Dang close. Might be a mm different here and there, but essentially
identical.

SD3C wiring connections are on the rear, with wires coming in from the
rear.

If you want top/bottom connections, take a look at Fuji PXR3 or Cal
3300.

The Love 32b has screw terminals on the rear, also, but the wires can
enter the connection from top/bottom.

I can't think of any 1/32 DIN controllers that can be wired
exclusively from the top.
