    Autopilot Dig-220 Amp Draw?

    How much amp draw needs to be added for the AP Digg-220? I don't see anything in the instructions about it. I like to keep the smallest gauge wire possible to keep the wiring more manageable in the enclosure.

    Thanks

    In order to tell you the amp draw we need to know what voltage it's set up for?
    It draws 345 watts. That's 1.5 amps at 230 volts or 3 amps at 120 volts.
    That info is in the owners manual.

    230v or 240v, 1.5 amp is nothing I will be able to use 12 or even 14 awg wiring if I choose. I am sure that a timer will not add to the amp draw, but I better ask just because I have been wrong plenty of times before. It is a Intermatic mechanical timer [T104] and I assume it has little or no amp draw, would that be correct?

    Again thanks for all the help

    Are you using the timer in the Dig-220 to control the pump?

    The actual timer is negligible, but whatever is hooked to it probably isn't. I assume that the swg is what you're hooking to it! :-\

    Not sure yet. I will use the dig-220 to control high/low pump speed tru.

    Yes, it's going from breaker to timer to swg to pump. I wanted timer first to act as a failsafe so swg can't produce chlorine when pump is not running. For ease of wiring I wanted to use 12 or 14 awg wire which is possible.
