! And What You Can Do About It Steve and Nina. The 30Amp breaker in my 200Amp Service Panel is I plan to use the 240V throughout the system. Not that I would do it, but its possible I guess You could actually get 12 lights out of it hooked up to 220 it looks like. I appreciate all your help. As long as you have a path to ground either with white or bare copper wire you have protection.
The following questions I need help with: 1. The mlc light controller does not have a spot to hook the bare ground wire , my sub panel has a ground bar. Best would be to use a 50A two-pole breaker. Is this an easier way of getting the correct receptacles and volts for a grow room with multiple lights without having to build a sub panel or wiring up new circuits for all 6 lights? You just need to know what your doing! Ideally you should use a 60amp breaker but I would go with the 50amp. This is the story of Steve and Nina, the two adulterers, and their betrayed spouses, Jeanine and Tony.
As a side note, I can pretty much guarantee that if it's not listed, it's not legal in most parts California. You could connect it to the neutral terminal in your plug and put a wire nut on it at the other end which is probably what I would do or you could leave it disconnected in the plug. Mrdizzle no one is a pro unless they are an licensed electrician! Each outlet 2 recepticles are rated for 15 amps. I was lucky and scored some real heavy duty relays that are used in those speed wash machines at the laundromat. I plan to plug in my electric ballast, which has 2 modes: 120V or 240V. Thanks again for all the help.
All names and other identifying details have been changed and this sordid and bleak story of these two self described soulmates is continually unfolding. I'll leave that up to folks that know what they're talking about. I was wondering what this controller was. I use a cheap anolog timer to turn them on and off. These relays operate on 28vdc.
Each kit features a power distribution block, 6-row switch hub, mounting hardware, and high-temperature, abrasion resistant wiring cables. So in reality, the neutral and the ground are tied at the beginning. Im guessing for the dryer outlet, you can add the dryer cable to it and plug it into a dryer outlet? I know there are 2 ways to power this controller as stated in the pdf file on the link. . Abandoning the wire would require me to cap the end as it enters the light controller.
The total current draw for 8 x 1000W ballasts 240V will be approximately 40A. Mrdizzle no one is a pro unless they are an licensed electrician! It compatible with all automobiles,Boats and devices equipped with a 10-30v power source. I'm soon going to run 6x1000w lights for a flowering room. And if I do change the amp to a bigger breaker i would need to also change the wire rated for the breaker is that correct? Since they've bypassed this safety feature, I don't they'll be able to convince a nationally recognized testing laboratory to certify the product. The Leviton 4-pronged receptacle is supposed to receive 4 prongs to run whatever its intended to.
But my situation is pretty straight forward so I hope someone can provide a solid answer. It seems weird because most devices are plugged into an outlet and this route it seems as if you go from the main panel 40amp breaker and straight to the controller box with no outlets in between. So this means I have the neutral and ground wires left, but only 1 location to left to land conductor. The difference between ground and neutral is that a neutral is a current carring conductor , the ground is not. Or should i not use the ground wire at the panel or the mlc. I'm sorry, I would not install it for a paying customer if it doesn't have a listing agency's seal, so I cannot in good conscious assist the installation for a stranger over the internet. Not to mention, I have my suspicions of what this is going to be used for which may or may not be legal.
If your going to use all 8 gangs on that mlc just be ready for it to blow or more. The neutral is not needed in this application and it can be abandoned. I can call the manufacturer on Monday when they open and ask the question. Should I change the amp from 40 double pole to a 50 or 60 amp double pole for extra safety precautions or should I be fine with a 40amp double? This plug-and-play system uses an in-line fused relay allowing you to safely connect up to 6 devices to one of the 6 interior switches with no mess and no fuss. I know they have different models and I know the differences. Provided your loads are strictly 240 volts only, you would not connect the white wire from your 4-wire plug and connect the green ground to the ground terminal.
