I'm currently (still) sourcing the bits and pieces to build an electric brewery inspired control panel and am currently looking at PIDs. I've settled on the Inkbird PID as it's easier to source here and don't have to pay the rip off VAT and duty charges to import other options. The question I have is, is there any difference between the 100 and 106 models other than the 106 having the Fahrenheit option? If not as I'm planning on using the Inkbird timer I'll probably go with the 100 model to satisfy my inner OCD.
If anybody has any experience or knows anything further about the 106 would be great to hear thoughts?
Not 100% sure but I was looking at the Inkbird PIDs on Ebay recently and unless I’m reading the specs wrong I don’t think any of them have programmable steps. This might not be an issue for your build but it’s what I’m after. The Auber PIDs have this feature but the price is almost twice that of the Inkbirds. I think you’ve outlined the main differences between the 2 models i.e alarm,display other than that it looks as if the 106 can only support the one type of Thermocouple (K-Type) whereas the 100 can support several different Thermocouples.
From what I can tell the 106 can be used with all the same probes so no issue there.
Is that the 2352P? I was doing some reading about that and it seemed it was a bit of a pain in the arse to program but no experience myself so might be ok. Does anyone have any experience with these if ok might be an option to run just one of these for the mash and go the Ink it’s for the rest?

Benn be warned the programming is a learning curve to itself, though once you know it your usually good to go. There are a few guys that have the ramp soak models (QldKev, Camo6 straight off the top of my head), so if and when you head down this path and get stuck, you know who to ask.
My next controller will be brauduino style with extra heater output (hlt control) and wifi/ web front end. But I've been lazy and stopped board dev late last year, something I have to get back to.
