Rated Resistive load: 10A 125VAC; Rated Inductive Load: 3A 120VAC
The relay would be switching on/off the mains plug for the following window AC unit:
It's 4.8 Amps, 115 VAC (with a GFCI plug)
Is a compressor a pure inductive load? If so it appears the 4.8 amps is over the rated 3A for inductive load.
If so, what does that mean? What is the failure mode? Will it blow up? will it just not last as long? Will it maybe be ok? What would be a suitable replacement that works with my controller?
This is a proof of concept, so if it lasts a few months, I'm ok with that.
