Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
Do you have any wiring diagrams? To show the order in how it is wired.
Do i bring a 120v control circuit from the main panel to a fire suppression panel?
What exactly is a shunt trip main? How is electric gas valve wired, so when exhaust fan is off, gas is off?
P.S-sorry to act stubborn but this is my first one to wire...do mainly residential work.
Yes, but how does everything get wired in together. Do I have an electrical control box given to me by the ansel people?
And are there any wiring diagrams that show how:
1-when exhaust to come on if off and stay on if on.
2-fresh air to shut down if they have it.
3-electric gas to shut down.
4-tie to fire alarm if they have one.
5-any electric under hood to shut down.
they say electric gas valve must be *wired* so when exhaust fan is off gas is off-any wiring diagram? you said gas valve is mechanically (air craft cable) shut not electrically...what is an air craft cable?
Sorry, i don't know the answers to these questions yet. I haven't seen the job yet. They just called me about it and told me those scenarios that need to be done. I'm not to experienced with it and wanted to be prepared before i went in to it.
If you can do the best at answering the previous questions and if you had a schematic you could send that would be nice to see too.
And What actually is the electrician usually required to do? Does he just run a 120v control circuit to a control box? Does someone else just do the control wiring? Is there a fire-suppression system control box that someone supplies.
Thanks for your help...i'll check back tomorrow.
