Hello I need to control a storage tank temperatur with a controller (using a controller from TRNSYS standard library or TESS). The controler should turn ON the heater when the temperature of water falls below 50 C, and turn in OFF when it reaches to 60 C. So far,I have tried different controllers but none of them provided what I what. Any ideas which controller have this ability and how to use it?

The aquastat controller in heating mode (Type106) with a setpoint of 55 and a deadband of 10 should give you the control signal that you want.
