I built a remote switch for a central dust collection circuit using industrial electrical components (I am an engineer by trade). All of the components are brand-new, high-quality parts. Since I just sold my dust collector, though, I don’t need this anymore!
The electrical box was cobbled together from scrap metal by one of the professional fabricators at my place of business, but it is the only thing not purchased. The switch is a 3-pole 30 amp industrial contactor rated for up to 600 volts (meaning it can be used for single phase 120V, single phase 240V, 240V/120V mixed like an oven outlet, two phase 480V, three phase 208V, etc). Input and output voltage land on 30 amp terminal blocks. The coil on the contactor is 120V, designed to be used with household light switches. There are two blue LED lights installed in the face of the enclosure that indicate 120V and 240V output from the contactor. I also have another 120V light to indicate power to the coil. All components are mounted on DIN rail with plenty of room for more components.
I will always take money for this, and I am willing to entertain any trade that you might have. I have well over $100 invested in this box. Thanks!
