Does anybody know about electrical relays, please?
Bi-Switching Circuit Needed to Control 2 x 1000w Kilns On and Off.
I have a workshop which has 2 x 1000w kilns.
To fire my pottery etc, I need to put a kiln on for about 12 hours.
No ordinary cheapo timer can handle the wattage load and so
I am thinking of using a heavy-duty relay.
Are you good with relays? If so, I would value your help, please.
What I want to do is plug my timer into the mains socket,
have the relay connected to the timer so that it knows when to switch on and off,
and then I need two outlets (one for each kiln) so that when one is switched on, the other is off, and so on.
I have thought of a 30A, 240v relay which is SPDT.
I have deliberately over-specified the relay because I want it to be safe and to last,
as well as use the thing for other applications where there may be a large inductive load
(as opposed to resistive load).
I can provide a link to the relay, but I'm not sure if this allowed.
