Post any questions for electrical advice here.
First part of your question is kinda understood.IS it safe to hookup a dual 15 amp timer to a 1000w and the other end a 600w and a couple of fans?
I know it is close to the max amps but not sure exactly how close. I currenly have it set up that way using 2 600's, but I aquired a 1000w ballast and wanted to see how it worked. Dont 6oow use about 5 amps and 1000W about 8.5?
No bro not at all, just a manufacturing style. u should be good to go as long as u have the correct fuses for ur app,hiboy,put in some a/c disconnect boxes for mini splits and there are 2 types of fuses that look like they will fit,both look like big buss fuses except one has a ridge that sticks up on one end,does it matter which type i use?
Thanks,First part of your question is kinda understood.
120v takes twice the amps as 240v.
a 1000 watt lamp takes 9 amps at 120v and 4.5 at 240v
a 15 amp circuit at 120v can run 1800 watts maxed out, 1500 ideally
a 15 amp circuit at 240v can run 2400 watts maxed out, 2000 ideally
hope this info helps u, kinda threw out a few diff. situations
If your timer is one of those cheapo no offense.... timers, what matters is two thingsThanks,
What I was trying to say was, if I have (1) digital dual 15 amp timer with one side plugged into a 1000W and the other side plugged into a surgeprotector with a 600w and 2 small fans plugged into that, would that be ok?
Thanks again for your help and time.
Hey i put a response in there for u,,, my ol thread with all that great info is M.I.A. so o well start a new one if it hasnt offended anyone.hiboy.. i made a thread yesterday in advanced forum cause i couldnt find your thread. could you peep out my thread and tell me if that is right or wrong. all the numbers are there, and thanks for your help bro
Put a response in there for u to check out, 6/3 is used when a neutral is required along with 240v, but your controller shouldnt need it if you checked it and saw the terminal not connecting to anything
