    G'day Oz

    Glad you arrived safely.

    I got the STC 1000 controller in the mail.

    I have wired it up to a heater, but cant get anything to happen,
    and the Chinese/English instructions on the one page instruction sheet
    are pure gibberish!

    Any hints?

    Cheers m

    Aha!- Thanks mate! That is totally different from the way I envisaged it from their utterly inadequate instructions!

    I assumed the heat contacts were self powered.

    I will now try that.

    If you find you need to adjust the calibration, I can point you to some helpful sites. I had to look that up today...
