    Wiring SWG into an integrated AO Smith timer


    I'm wondering if any of you have any experience, or if its even possible, to wire the SWG into the integrated timer on my 2 speed AO Smith pump?

    Thanks for any help!

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Sorry for the delay. I am a little confused though. Most 2-speed motors do not have timers built in to them. Can you post up more information and maybe pictures?

    I is usual to power the SWG from the same timer source as the pump, but the timer is not usually integrated into the motor itself.

    I don't believe they have any kind of external control connection. You will either need to use an external timer or get something like a current controlled relay to turn the SWG on only when the motor is drawing power.
