I live in Canada and have been saving to either buy or build a PID for my Silvia. The best deals have found to buy the kit are from Aubrins.com directly or from Idrinkcoffee.com. D4F has a few posts here in CG explaining in detail how to build and install a PID for less. Once I am able I will just be going with the basic brew only model from Aubrins.com
Both housings contain RTD sensors, the difference is the holding mechanism. The one screws into a hole used by a screwed in thermostat, and the other is an RTD housed in a T'stat body so that it clamps down. Yours appears to be clamped.
Are you ordering a kit from Auber? Or supplies from Auber? You can email them and Suyi will help as well.
I will order from them after all.. they told me they are good at marking low value and gift on custom forms, so that makes it a lot closer in $$$ than from EspressoTec, and from the frequency of email replies, I assume support will be excellent from them
If you email the boiler/stat photo to them, they can confirm. That said, if your stat is flat bottom then you need that style. I don't believe that the screw in sensor fits a clamp screw hole but the larger stat screw. You will reuse the clamp to hold the sensor.
