I'd like to automate our storage/tank water heater using some home
automation system using zWave.
Local power is 240V 50Hz
The Water Heater is rated
(which in my calculations may end up just above 13A)
Originally, the water header was just connected directly to the
incoming power supply via a 2-throw wall switch (for both the
L and N wires, ground connected through inside the switch housing.
I was planning to use a Fibaro FGS-213 switch for this
It is rated at 8A tops, so it cannot be used with the heater
as load directly
So I got a contactor:
Schneider TeSys LC1K09 10M7
which is rated:
| [Ie] rated operational current
| 9 A AC AC-3 for power circuit at
