Ok, now i am following you.

Expert:  Wayne Roberts replied 1 year ago.

could this "micro switch" be described as an "auxiliary contactor"?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
WELL THE ANSUL SYSTEM HAS THE MICRICRO SWITCH WHICH I SUPPLY 120 AND HAS A NO -NC
Expert:  Wayne Roberts replied 1 year ago.

Shew, ok i am following you. The 120v to the shunt trip comes from the switch that controls the exhaust fans,l hood lights ect.
