Before you start modifying one of Joe's controllers to do something it
wasn't designed for.  You should REALLY consider a commercial grade
controller like the RS80D.  I know from experience.  I tried to do
something just like your describing and through a stupid mistake ended
up frying the electronics and two SSR's in the process.  You only get
one chance with high current circuits.
