I've wired a
teledyne s24d40 ssr to a
leviton 20 amp duplex outlet using a 12 gauge extension cord.
The load is a 1200 watt wagner heat gun and I'm using a 9v battery to test.
This is my first AC project and I'm trying to make sure I haven't done something incorrectly.
ext cord green ground wire -> outlet green earth terminal
ext cord neutral white wire -> outlet silver terminal
ext cord hot black wire -> ssr output terminal 1
ssr output terminal 2 -> outlet brass terminal
+/- wires to ssr control terminals
When the ssr is triggered and the heat gun power switch is set to
high, everything works as expected.
However, when the ssr is triggered with the heat gun power switch set to
low, the heat gun does not power on.
Can anyone explain what's going on? I need to use the heat gun in the
low setting for this application.
I apologize if this is an ignorant question, I'm still learning :)
Thanks very much for your time.
