Would recommend spending the couple extra bucks to get made in USA contactor
I used to get Titan Max contactors, but no longer made in USA. Some of the Eaton stuff is still made in USA.Any brand recommendations for USA made? Even the Square D is made in China.
Never a bad idea to get an overload.
Ive been buying Fuji Contactors/overloads at automation direct and theyve been good so far.
Make it sound Japanese, nice marketing... on some serious note, I've had good luck with the stuff I've bought from automation direct. Usually it's free overnight shipping for me too, they are like 40 minute drive from me, which is a plus.Made in China, It sounds Japanese though so that's cool, right?
Which amp range for Cat pumps? I need a couple on handAutomation direct is an impressive company. I've used their proximity switches and cables as Turck replacements with excellent results. They have competitive pricing on everything and their shipping is super fast.
I took a PLC class there 15 years ago and we toured the facility and met the CEO at the time. He was a tech geek straight out of the movie "nerds" . His office was decorated like the bridge on the starship enterprise.
If the relay contacts have too low of an amperage rating ... from first hand experience over the years ... it will tend to cause sticking.We have a contactor that keeps sticking together causing the pump to run without water. I feel i need to replace but googling the part # i basically get nothing. Is there a modern version of this ?
20 amp for 3HP, 30 amp for 5, but I see no issue with using 30 AMP for everything.
The part you recommended came and we are back up and running, thanks Randy!All you need is a 24 volt 2 pole contactor something like this https://www.kleen-ritecorp.com/p-31...c-electric-motor-contactor-24-vac-2-pole.aspx or go on Ebay and look for a Definite Purpose Contactor 24 volt 220 volt 30 amp.
