Hi, i would like to wire a 12v heat link to this device to switch my 2 (13Amp each) immersion heater 240v to come on. Would this work?

Can this relay be used to switch a single phase 600w induction motor? The steady-state current draw seems well within capacity but the spec. quotes resistive loads, not inductive ones.

Asked by: AlanNcl
Thanks for taking the time to respond Russell. The coil is on 12 volts DC but the relay switch supplying the motor is at 240v AC so the motor only takes about 2.5 amps at steady state running (600/240) not 50 (600/12). This is well within the spec but on starting and stopping an Induction motor the transient current can be many times this running value and that is what I was worried about. I have now bought a voltage snubber to put across the contacts which should help reduce arcing but I wanted to check if this all seems ok?

hi there, I'm hoping to use this in a project of mine but just need some clarification before i pull the trigger. am i right in thinking that this relay uses 12v input to switch mains voltage on/off? im hoping to use a remote relay to power this relay as it has a much higher rating. therefore using the remote relay with 12v output when i press the button on my remote. which im hoping would then throw this relay, closing the 240v side. Am i correct in thinking this?
