    Rancilio Silvia PID

    I have just installed my Auber PID unit following the mimmo design. The front cover plate proved very useful as I messed up a bit with the Dremel. I have since measured the internal temperature of the Silvia to cycle from 73 - 80 degC when it is fully warmed. A sales person at Auber recommends that the controller be operated at environmental temperatures not exceeding 50 degC, otherwise the high temperatures will "shorten its lifetime". All is working very fine so far and hoping to get a few years out of this installation. The controller is just the simple boiler control variety.

    Thanks for sharing! I found the pictures and instructions easy to follow. I have just installed a similar PID unit with the front cover plate on the outside which proved very useful as I messed up a bit with the Dremel. I measured the inside working temperature of Silvia at about 80 degC, which is 30 degrees higher than recommended by the sales person at Auber who said the higher temperature would "shorten the lifetime" of the controller. All is working very fine so far and I am hoping to get a few years out of this installation.
