Think this one would work
Any suitably rated contactor with an off timer module which has a coil compatible with the control voltage you select.What ordinary relay would you suggest?
I work on site most of time and requires 110v tools
Yes, it looks like that module should work as you intend.
Anything that draws more current than the threshold required to activate the current sensor should trigger the extraction no matter what it is.Was chatting to my neighbour he suggested that a resistor might fool the extractor to think there’s a tool being used?
I was looking for a neater solution that perhaps I could install inside the case of the extractor but as you say the resistor required would be too big after doing a few calculationsAnything that draws more current than the threshold required to activate the current sensor should trigger the extraction no matter what it is.
Not sure why you would want to connect a resistor though - it will need to be quite hefty to take the power and you might be better to consider a tubular heater.
