The PD-100’s contains a single dry contact
closure. It serves to energize the actual pump
start relay, whose contacts are electrically rated
large enough to start the pump itself. Closing
these contacts typically requires a fairly large
relay, the “pump starter holding coil”, shown
below. This large holding coil requires a great
deal of electrical current. The 2-wire path is not
designed to supply enough current to energize a
pump start relay. The customer must supply an
additional transformer that is sized (voltage and
current) to match the holding coil. See the
diagram below.
