I am setting up a remote control for my 5hp compressor so the same thing would work on the DC

What you need

1. Contactor 220v 30amp, make sure it’s rated for the HP you are using. Mine was $12.00
2. You have to decide how to trigger the contactor, could be as simple as just a switch on the wall or something that comes on every time a blast gate is open. Low voltage is great for blast gates.
3. An enclosure to house the contactor.

That’s about it.

Saw on another forum where one Gent. used a cheap radio shack light controller to trigger the contactor so he had a wireless remote in his hand.
