STTC-FC178V Single tank temperature controller FermCont VARIO is used in Breworx breweries and cider lines for measuring and control of temperatures in tanks (HWT, ITWT, ICWT, CCT, OFV, BBT …). This temperature controller is designed for fix instalation, directly on the tank. It is equipped with the VARIO jack plug connector for easy and quick connestion with the STTC-CB100V connection box. The controller cooperates with other components of the TTMMCS (Tank temperature manual measurement & cooling system). All the measuring and control system is Designed in Germany.

Picture : Example tank temperature control system with STTC-FC178V Single tank temperature controllers :
A fundamental factor for producing great beer, cider or wine is a well-controlled fermentation and maturation process. The brewer, cider maker or wine maker has the temperature control as a means of intervention in the process of fermentation. However it is not only about reaching an “optimal” temperature but rather about having the right temperature at each stage of the fermentation process. An electronic temperature control offers safety during the fermentation and maturation, saves time, energy, costs, and above all, serves to improve the quality of your product.
The temperature controller for individual tanks
The controller’s double display shows the actual and preset temperature (value) in separate displays. Additionally, a LED light shows the actual mode of operation: cooling or heating.
The STTC-FC178 is available in two versions :
- STTC-FC178F – ‘FIX’ with a lose cable end for a fixed installation
- STTC-FC178V – “VARIO” with a plug end for a variable installation (the system described on this site)
As accessory we have available for both versions connection boxes – FIX or VARIO – for running a comfortable and simple installation.
This temperature controller is the ideal solution for every brewer, cider or wine maker who wishes to have the temperature displayed right on the tank and who prefers a fixed installation of the temperature controller on the tank. The FermControllers can also be eqquipped with the TempInfo software. Adjustment of tank temperature can be made either physically on the tank or in the office through the software installed on a PC Server. The FermControllers can also be completely integrated in the bus system TempInfo.
All recommended components of the STTC-FC-VARIO on-tank temperature control system :
STTC-FC178V Single tank temperature controller FermCont VARIO
STTC-FF178 Single tank temperature controller FermCont is used in Breworx breweries and cider lines for measuring and control of temperatures in tanks (HWT, ITWT, ICWT, CCT, OFV, BBT …). This temperature controller is designed for a variable instalation, directly on the tank. The controller cooperates with other components of the BTCCS (Breworx tank cooling control system). All the measuring and control system is Designed in Germany.
STTC-CB100V Connection box for the FermCont temperature controller VARIO/IP65
The STTC-CB100V is a connection box for the STTC-FC178V Single tank temperature controller. It is used for the connection between the STTC-FC178V controller, the power supply and (optionally) the control computer. The STTC-CB100V and the STTC-FC178V FermCont are equipped for a variable installation using the connector-pair. All the this measuring and control system is Designed in Germany.
STTC-SS180 Sensor socket for FF178 temperature controller
The socket with inner diameter 7mm , length 190mm , is designed for welding or screwing connection on the tank. The STTC-FC178F controller will be inserted into the socket.
The motorized or solenoid valves for regulation of water/glycol cooling systems. It is used for a quick opening and closing of the coolant pipe way of the one tank cooling zone. Each the motorized or solenoid valve is connected to the STTC-CB100 connection box. Designed in Czech republic.
The pipe Y-strainer filter is used as protecion element for recommended cooling systems with solenoid valves.
CCK-100 Cable & connector kit for TTMMCS
Cables and connector for power and data connecting of all components (one cooling zone) with TTMMCS manual tank temperatrure control system.
Transformers with a cabinet for tank temperature measurement & control systems with the 24 volt AC power supply standard. Input : 230V/50-60Hz , Output 24 V AC. For power supply of the tank temperature controllers .
