What device is the only load in the control circuit of a condensing unit?

I think that would have to be some relay or contactor coil for a fan, compressor or relay contacts.


How does a magnetic contactor operate?

explain me about the contactor works with examples. if i want to control a motor with contactor. and how i can use contactor in loops with over load and circuit breakers.


Why is the compressor contactor not sticking in?

A contactor not being energized or closed can be caused by a host of reasons . A shorted or open contactor coil. No control voltage or incorrect voltage present to energize the contactor coil , A safety device opening or breaking the control circuit . A loose or broken control devise or control wire . and possibly more , depending on your a/c units control wiring configuration. Tom H, HVAC proffesional. New Orleans .

How do you run a single phase motor automatically?

you would need a motor starter/contactor with the contactor coil rated at your control voltage. the motor is wired through the contactor main contacts and the control circuit wired into the contact coil


How do electro magnetic contactors work?

A contactor is an electrically controlled switch (relay) used for switching a power circuit. an electro pneumatic contactor is similar to the above except it uses a pneumatic signal to initiate the switching of the electric power circuit. an electro magnetic contactor is a contactor driven by an electric control signal. It us usually just called a contactor.

How do you wire up a 208v single phase motor with micro switch?

Use a motor magnetic contactor to control the motor. Use the micro switch in series with the contactor's coil. When the micro switch closes the contactor will pull in. When the micro switch opens the contactor will drop out and disconnect the motor. Remember to connect the contactor's overload contacts, also in series, into the run circuit so that if the motor gets into an overload condition, the run circuit will also drop the contactor out.


What is the function of contactor?

A contactor is used like a switch. It is used to open and close the circuit it is in series with by electrically energizing and de-energizing the holding coil of the contactor. By having this adaptability the circuit can be remotely operated from a distance and the operator does not have to be in close proximity to the circuit. Contactors are used to remotely operate banks of lighting and of course the contactor is used for motor control. On contactors that control motors an additional overload block is added to the bottom side of the contactor to protect the motors if they get into an over load condition. The N.C. contacts in the overload block will open and the holding coil of the contactor will de-energize and drop the motor off line.


How many wires to control a mechanically held contactor?

No wires are needed to control a mechanically held contactor. An electrically held contactor will require two wires to control it.


What is the function of the current sensing relay in an oil safety control scheme?

The electrical control panel for a refrigeration unit using single or three phase power. The control portion has an oil pressure safety switch, defrost timer, temperature controls and perhaps a refrigerant pressure control in conjunction with the normal internal overload circuit breakers for the compressor. After operation of the refrigeration unit for a period of time, a defrost control device cuts off the compressor and turns on the electric defrost heaters. As the evaporator coils are defrosted, defrost thermostats open the defrost heater supply circuits. When the current sensing relay senses that all the defrost heaters have been shut off via the defrost thermostats, a time delay relay will return the refrigeration unit to the normal refrigeration cycle. The same current sensing relay will prevent false triggering by the oil pressure safety switch if the compressor's internal overload circuit breaker opens


On a heat pump the outside fan is not running when it's in ac mode contactor not pulled in why?

No control power to the contactor coil. You must trace the control circuit back until you find the open switch that is interrupting the flow of power and correct the problem.
