    I think the concern wasn't about the something running at 120V, but was more about having a
    wire energized at the kettle. No current is flowing because it has no where to go, but if you
    decided to wor...

    Now I'm getting confused, lol. Let's see if I can sort it out.We are discussing thas the use of
    a single NO switch to turn on/off power in the panel, through the use of a NO DPST mechanical
    contactor....

    Completely on a tangent here, but when I started to read your post and saw where you lived, my
    first thoughts were about what happened to a friend of mine down in Lillington this past
    summer. This is ...

    I'm not sure I agree with P-J and jeffmeh here (which likely means I'm wrong as we often
    agree).Say you run Hot A from your supply to the line side terminal of the contactor and jumper
    it to the coil....

    Auber Instruments key switch - SW8 a N/O & a N/C contact set. You will need to add a 2nd N/O
    contact instead of the N/C block for it to work for your setup. The N/C switch block will not
    function fo...

    The problem here is not really backflow, or safety but the fact that your LED is likely to stay
    lit. See attached simulation images, may help explain more. While some Pilot LED's have bridge
    circuits/...

    shtank,I agree with jeffmeh and am more than willing to redraw the diagram for you. It is
    fairly easy for me to do and certainly very easy for you to implement.Please consider it and
    let me know.P-JTh...

    I just fired up the newly-minted Mark II version of my control panel and found that I had made
    the same mistake as the OP: 240V coil instead of 120V. Duh! Anyway, I'm planning to use what I
    have rathe...

    Okay, this is for all of you EE's out there. I posted a couple of days ago about a wiring
    variation I'm considering for my panel based on Kal's design. To summarize, instead of powering
    the element in...

  • Posted in thread: Quick Wiring Question on 03-04-2013 at 09:22 PM
    What your doing is OK, I did basically this only I ran the lights in parallel off of the power
    from the switch for the element and then to neutral. (In series with the switch didnt
    work)Going this rou...
