Contactors for e-brew heating elements.
 
1 Attachment(s)

Bought a lot of 10 Allen-Bradley 100-C30 ser. C contactors from a local factory that was cleaning out used inventory. I used 2 for my 5500w heating elements and one for main power. So I have 7 left for sale. These are 3pole which worked perfectly for me, 2 hot wires and a power wire for an indicator light. They are 240 single phase, you could easily use up to a 6500w element. The coil is 120v so it is simple to control by a selector switch. I seen these on ebay for over $60 for used ones, $100 plus for new ones. $22ea + shipping.

Yes these are din rail mount. I used 3 in my Kal style build, I control them with a 110v selector switch that pulls in the coil to allow one leg of 110v to go to the ssr and the other to go to the heating element. Using the selector switch only allows 1 of contactors to be pulled in at a time(either hlt, or boil). And 1 for main power controlled by a key switch.

Some of you were requesting pics of the inside of the control panel (contactor shot). Not the best pic but gives you and idea. Ill try to find some more pics.

UPDATE:
There are more of you inquiring about several C30 contactors, so I went down to the local company to see if I could obtain anymore. The service dept stated they wont have any available for several months, but are in the process of disassembling a couple of prototype panels and will have 100-C23-D10 and 100-C23-D01 for purchase tomorrow. These are rated for RESISTIVE CURRENT 32 AMPS, they are 3 pole, 110v coil, and have a bonus auxiliary contact. The 100-C23-D10 has a normally open contact and the 100-C23-D01 has a normally closed contact. These would be perfect for use with a 5500w or less heating element. For those of you that purchased C30's, they will ship on Monday. If you want to swap out C30's for a C23's let me know before then. The C23's are the same price. I picked up 10 of these for now, but if I get an increased interest in these I can get more. http://www.1sourcedist.com/woe/Produ...?ProductId=288
