    Yup - still do them, and I think I've just replied to your message about buying one.

    Thanks!

    Hi all, I seem to be having problems with everything these days! I got one of these in mail today, very quick from @MrShades thank-you. I took out boiler again and screwed it in carefully. Put it all back together. I am using a Sestos D1S VR PID
    http://www.sestos-hk.com/english/download/d1s-en.pdf
    and initially put the 2 red wires in 4 and 5, with the white in 3. However it shows 640C at room temp, I have tried other combinations to get it to work, left one red free and red in 4 white in 3, it said 23C but the temp went down v slowly as boiler came on. Then I swapped white to 4 red to 3. It said 23 and went up v slowly to 30, but then I checked and it was producing lots of steam from the steam wand. Does anyone have any ideas? Previously it was set up with a wire attached to the outside of boiler with Sugru. I am not sure what that was, or if I need to change some settings on the Sestos to get it to recognise the RTD correctly?

    Thanks in advance sorry for being a pain.

    You’ll need to reconfigure your PID for a pt100, yes. They’re normally configured for a K type thermocouple as standard.

    Refer to your PID manual and it should tell you how to do this. Sorry I can’t help, as I don’t use those PIDs and they all tend to be quite different when it comes to config.

    Beautiful, thankyou @MrShades so much! Once I knew where to look. Something finally went well today. The actual manual for the sestos is pretty abysmal, I found a very helpful "Secret" manual for the Sestos D1S here https://sestosd1s.blogspot.com as you said it was set for a K type thermocouple. So I changed the Sn from 0 (K) to 21 (pt100)

    Now it is working fine, although I need to tune the settings as it is overshooting too much but that is to be expected. Great! Can start trying/learining to make espressos again!

    Hi, being a new member I can not PM. I would very much like to buy your sensor.
    Do you still ship?

    Hi! Do you @MrShades make a PID kit for the GC 2015?
    cheers

    No I don’t, sorry - and currently have no intention of doing so.

    Hi. If still available I'm interested in one of your sensors.
    I'm in the USA.

    cheers!
