I have a "Little Giant" condensate pump VCMX-20 model. This pump comes with a "safety switch". The pump turns on when the water level gets to 1.2 inches. The "safety switch" will "do something" when the water level reaches 2.2 inches.
Right now I don't have the "safety switch" connected... because I don't know how to connect the "safety switch". I want to connect the "safety switch" to turn off a wall outlet (used by a dehumidifier).
- Safety switch: The safety overflow switch should be connected to a ClassII low voltage circuit. To control a thermostatic circuit the COM and NO connections from the safety switch are to be wired in series with the low voltage thermostat circuit to shut down the heating/AC circuit. The COM and NC switch contacts may be used to actuate a low-voltage alarm circuit (connected in series) if the heating/cooling system can not be disrupted. The safety switch comes from the factory with leads connected to the COM and NO switch terminals.
NOTE: When installing or replacing the safety switch, make sure that it is positioned between the two ribs on the motor cover (Figure 5).
The "safety switch" has two wires hanging out.
I opened up the "safety switch" because the wires aren't labeled and found out there is:
How do you connect the "safety overflow switch" wires to turn off a wall outlet??
The manual says to connect the "safety switch" to a "class-II low voltage" device. So maybe there is a "class-II voltage" device that controls the "wall outlet plug".
