Contactor question
 
What are the amps for the 120v side of this contactor? I am assuming that a 10 amp switch to activate it would be sufficient. Thanks

The Amps needed to pull in the 120V coil is very minimal. A switch rated for 120V / 10A is more than sufficient.

For reference, my contactors pull a little less than 0.5A.

Cool, that gives me a lot of flexability in what type of switch I use. Thanks!
