Recommendations for using Powermesh Switches with Inductive loads
When wiring a Powermesh Multi Purpose switch ( PMMPSxxx) to an inductive load such as an exhaust fan, contactor, etc., the use of an RC Suppressor module is highly recommended as a safeguard. The RC Suppressor will normalise current spikes and maintain a more stable voltage level that can be caused by these inductive loads which could potentially damage the switch .
Please note this is NOT DIY and installation must be carried out by a LICENSED ELECTRICIAN to local wiring regulations. Failure to follow these instructions can result in serious injury or death.
Wire the suppressor module to the desired switch circuit channel behind the switch as per the diagram below.
Suppressor modules recommended:
- Okaya part no. XEB0471
- RS Components part no. RS240-393.
