Wiring a 220v Contactor.


Well, my doubt is as follows:

I have this contactor, a 25A 220v

Should i simply place hot L1 to A1 and Hot L2 to A2, for activating the sensor circuit? or it requires another configuration?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

It took me a little while to locate your contactor. Apparently it is specifically used in the UK.
Connecting 220-240vac to the A1 and A2 terminals will activate the contactor and close the contacts. Does that answer your questions ?

If not.... let me know what you are doing with the contactor.

You mention a "sensor" ; what physical stimulus does the sensor react to; given that sensors are "sensitive" , 240v may be excessive voltage for this control-device.
