A customer of mine would like pull chains installed on their 208V 40A patio heaters. Does anyone know where I can find a heavy duty pull chain setup for these? (i've looked around but cant find anything)
I have NEVER seen such an animal.. If you want to have the heater controlled with a P-chain, a regular one would have to be wired into the control circuit if one exists within the heater ( providing the P-Chain's voltage rating matches or exceeds the control circuit voltage).. A unit that big would most likely have a contactor that controls the heater and the contactor coil will be driven from a circuit that contains all the control / safety devices.. Are these patio heaters 208 single phase or are they 3-phase?...
Just curious.. A.D

rewired- these are in a 3-phase system. Also, I dont beleive there is a contactor in the system already (although i havent checked). It looks as though the heaters are wired directly to the panel, where they are currently switched from.
