Dan, I beg you to help me some more. The more I try to get this thing working, the more frustrated I get. I am offering almost all of my meagre reputation in exchange for help.

comment How do I set up a Sestos D1S temperature controller?
Yes. It's definitely on continuously. I would easily be able to tell if it was less than 100% duty at 1Hz. And it should have been no more than 50%. I am a robotic engineer, and have made many PID controllers for robots, so I'm used to watching for pulsing outputs, even at much higher frequencies.
