Anyone using two heaters connected to one channel on pc4 or would it be better two use two separate channels? If so what would be the best channels to use?

It's fine to put both heaters on a single outlet as long as you don't overdraw what it's rated for. If high wattage heater then use outlet 1 or 4 if a tiny one then use whatever you want..

Don't forget to set hysteresis to keep the relays last longer.

my heaters are 300 watt each which draw combined 5.4 amps so I would assume I would use channels 1 or 4. I plan on setting them both the same at 79.0 degrees with a hysteresis of .02 what are your thoughts? if one would to fail would both fail because on the same channel? Thanks again for your help especially for the lighting question you answered.

Hysteresis at .02 is a really tight window, you meant .2? Which is fine.

Yes, 2 heaters on 2 separate outlets is better to prevent from single outlet failure if you have the extra outlet. You were right about set them up to work at the same time.

Glad that could help [emoji1]
