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.

A switch on a control panel can be activated(turned on) which pulls in the coil on this contactor and allows power to pass through this unit, one leg of 120v to a ssr and the other leg to your heating element or heatstick. Then a pid could control the ssr when heat is needed.

With Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box and Delivery Confirmation you are looking at about $6 through the post office.

Are these DIN mount?

These look like they would work with my planned Kal style e-brew control panel. I guess I would need two, ie one for each 5500W element. Let me know how much shipping would be for two. How did you set yours up? Do you have them wired to both turn on with the master power switch? I'm asuming your SSRs do all the power cycling while you are in the process of brewing... so much to learn.

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.
