The purpose of the bus bar protection unit is to isolate any bus by tripping its contactor or isolate a faulty bus in the variable ac system?

NO, it sounds like your asking about the protection and isolation of the Bus Bar. . The Bus Bar is (usually 3, or 4) solid copper bars that run through an MCC (Motor Control Center) and just supply power to the individual 'buckets' (compartments that contain the individual motor starters).. The (MORE)

What is the difference between circuit breaker and contactor?

A circuit breaker is designed to break a circuit which is carrying current at the time. Where large currents and/or voltages are present, the opening of the circuit may induce dangerous arcing, so means such as air blast must be used to "blow out" the arc. Air breakers are being phased out and repla (MORE)

If you have a bad compressor does that mean you need a new contactor?

Not always. But if a compressor goes bad it can take out the contactor. I have replaced compressors before and found the contactor is still ok.. In a commercial application Copeland will not honor the warranty if the contactor is not replaced at the same time a new compressor is installed. Not sure (MORE)

How do you wire a relay to control a 220V circuit with two hot wires?

You need a double pole relay, that is a relay with 4 connection places. [screws, etc.]. Place your 2 hot wires on the screws marked line, makes no difference which wire on which screw. The 2 wires being energized by the relay action go on the load screws of the relay. Square D makes a good quiet rel (MORE)

Evaporative emission control system-vent control circuit?

It's one of the most common error codes which you can run in if you own Toyota Camry. It's well known that presence of such code does not mean that something is wrong. First try reseting the computer. If the code comes back than you have to change the sensor. The sensor is usually attached to the ch (MORE)

Contactor receive an (MORE)

What is the purpose of the resistor in the timer circuit?

This depends on the circuit. A resistor may be connected in series with a capacitor and will control the rate at which the capacitor charges or discharges (known as an RC timing circuit); at a certain voltage (0.6 Volts) this may turn on part of another circuit through a transistor.

What does the compressor do in the refrigeration system?

it compresses the refrigerant vapor into a small volume, increasing the pressure and therefore the temperature of the refrigerant The compressor moves the refregirant around the system.

A contactor is wired with the line voltage connected to the top terminals and the load connected to the bottom terminals. A second circuit is used to energize the contactor coil to draw the contactor's contacts together to complete the circuit to the load.

Why is a timer is used in an electrical circuit?

Timer relays are used in control circuitry. There are two main types, an (off delay) and an (on delay). If you want one device to turn off before the timer controlled device then you would use an off delay timer. If you want one device to turn on before the timer controlled device then you would use (MORE)

Why refrigerator is called closed loop control system?

A closed loop system is one where the ouput of the system is at least part of the input. In a refrigerator, the output of the cooling system (the cold air inside the refrigerator) is measured, and is fed back into the system to determine whether the system needs to continue cooling. An example of a (MORE)

When using a 3 wire control circuit to control a magnetic motor starter the part that will open the control circuit when an overload occurs will be?

The part that opens the circuit is the overload blocks that are situated below the magnetic starter and before the motor load. The latest addition to the electrical code book states that the "hot" wire goes through the overload contacts first before feeding the 3 wire control system. With the supply (MORE)

When a household refrigerator compressor does not run it is recommended that low and high side access valves be installed when recovering refrigerant from the system because?

The last thing you want to do is tap into a closed system, this is the beginning of the end in most cases. If a unit is damaged, the refrigerant will be gone anyways. A refrigerator holds 4 oz. to 5 oz. refrigerant, it takes a tiny leak to deplete it entirely. Should you need to pump a system down t (MORE)

How many wires to control a contactor?

A contactor is a type of switch. However this switch uses electricity to power an electromagnetic coil to switch on or off power. Hence a contactor needs 2 wires - A live/hot wire and a neutral wire. Generally these are connected across the A1 and A2 terminals of the contactor.

What is the function of timer in an electric circuit?

A timer can be of two types. An off-delay timer is used when the circuit needs to be energized for a specific amount of time after the off-delay's timers coil becomes de-energized. An example of this is when a cutoff saw becomes de-energized but the conveyor, to move the wood along, needs to be oper (MORE)
