Several on here running the x300 and x320. I ordered my x320 on eBay like a hour before they announced the x410!  :bash:

I've been happy with the x320 so far, but the x410 looks even better!!

What temps are u watching?? Supply and return? Can the data be logged and graphed?

I'm hoping to capture supply/return temps and also flue gas temps

I'm watching supply and return at the boiler, supply and return into the house and currently General outside temp. I plan to monitor my shop temp when I move the boiler and begin heating the shop as well. I also plan on controlling the shop heat with a relay through the x320.

The x410 will do all of the above, and they also now have an add-on module for the x410 that will let you run a sensor to monitor flue temps!

The x320 doesn't let me graph, although there are ways to send your data to a database and setup web based graphs if you know how to stay sort of programing. Marty on here has done it. I messed with it little big but haven't fully set it up yet. The x410 has built in graphing I belive. I would for sure get the x410 over the x320!!

Right at this particular moment, Iím looking at an outlay of about $50 to build a monitor based on the raspberry pi zeroWH board. Will have four temp probes and two thermocouples, a friend is a code monkey and heíll handle that part.

yeah I thought about going that route. even talked to my IT buddies about it. But all in all I don't trust my skills for writing a program like that. I ended up purchasing everything I needed which included an expensive cell phone router because I don't have WiFi. It was a bigger upfront cost but I wont have an expensive monthly bill to pay every month for unreliable satellite internet. All said and done I spent about $750 for everything I need. a little costly but it will do everything I want including cloud date logging and real time temps. I will be monitoring Water Jacket temps, supply, return, stack temps and hopefully secondary reaction chamber temps if I can figure out a good way to get a thermocouple in there. Ryan is suppose to be checking with his engineers this week to see if they have an idea on the best placement for one. The entire system will be mounted right out at the boiler. either in the back pump cabinet or in a separate electrical cabinet that I will mount to the outside of the unit. everything should be delivered by next week, I will be sure to keep you all update!

That's not a bad idea......any thoughts on how to fish it in there with still being able to open the door easily???

I have one thatís ten inches long. Take a long drill bit and drill clear thru the door. Tap the outer layer and insert it thru and tighten it up. Take the lead and run it to the right and fasten it to a hinge then run under the stove to the monitor. May have to get some K type wire to extend it. FYI it has to be Ktype wire, not speaker wire, not house wire, but k type wire or it wonít read accurately as any other wire will change the reading.

not a bad idea. I believe Control By Web will make me any kind of sensor that I need, so I will have to take your recommendation on that.
