Default Aubers Contactor

Does any one know how you hook up the coil portion of the auber contactor? From the looks of it there really isnt an input or out put side? Any pictures or diagrams would be very helpful.....Thanks

Matt

The polarity doesn't matter. Bring your hot to one side and neutral to the other.

Kinda new to this electric brewery hung, so I'm just wondering, what are all the ssr's for, is tha a bcs rig, or your "standard" 1 2 or 3 pid panel build, I have 3 pid's but only 2 ssr's. I've seen a couple now that have 6 ssr's and can't figure out why there are so many! Please help me!!

Does any one have any photos of how theirs are hoked up? I'm curious on how hooking the coil up with my neutral wire to others coils is done.

Thanks,
Matt

That looks fine above, the white is the neutral, and you still haven't hooked up the hot To the other side of the contactor from the switch correct?
