Current Sensing Switch

Used with dryer boost fans. Senses current between 1 and 50 Amps. Switch a load of 2.5 Amps, 120V, 60 Hz. Ideal for use with; Dryer Booster Fans

This controller senses when a clothes dryer is drawing between 1 and 50 amps of current. When this occurs a relay contact closes turning on the dryer vent booster fan. When  current drops below threshold the relay contacts open turning off the fan. The sensor is rated to control a load of 2.5 Amps at 115 V. For higher amperage loads, a general purpose relay may be used to control the load. The sensor is designed to mount in a standard electrical box. The current transformer may be placed in an electrical box adjacent to the junction box in which the wires supplying power to the dryer are located. The dryer supply neutral (white) wire passes through the center of the current relay donut. No other physical connection need be made.
