Plug Load Controller with Contactor (02624-03)

Download PDF.

The line diagram below depicts the Plug Load Controller (PLC) with a third-party contactor to control large Loads.  The Plug Load Controller output controls the coil of the contactor, and as a result, energy metering of the large loads is not possible.  This solution can be used to control multiple lighting circuits when time clock control only is needed.

Note that the Plugload controller does not presently support an Astro clock, nor is it rated for outdoor use. Refer to the SU-5 and CU-4E with Contactors (03095-02) to control large load with a sensor and Control Unit combination and a contactor relay for the exterior outdoor lighting use case. Note that energy metering is not possible with the sensor and Control Unit combination.
