Ran across a cheap used PID controller that I thought I might be able to implement into a HERMS or RIMS (havent decided yet). Anyway, the controller has a relay output (which I assume is a low amp output) but not a ssr output, could I still use this to drive a heating element......since you need a solid state relay to run the element?!??

You should be able to use the controller, along with the proper ss relay to handle the higher amperages. Check with the manufacturer of the controller, they should be able to tell you how to wire the ss relay to the outputs on the PID unit.

Get the EXACT model # and download a copy of the owners manual. All the wiring info should be there.
