How,s this for controlling a double element still, that has plugin sockets or cords, 240v. Say a 1.5k & a 1.7k for example.
1: For heat up and fast stripping runs, have both elements plugged in and on(separate wall supplies).3.2k2: For stripping or high heat runs, have one of the elements turned on. 1.5k or 1.7k.3:For low heat runs 797w, have a double socket and power cord, rewired to serial instead of parallel.Example: Take a duel wall socket, wire some 3core flex in series instead of parallel, standard wall plug other end. Plug
in both elements-plug in wall plug = 797. Yes? No?
Wall socket housed in a safe box of course. Or if you can find the right duel socket/cord just a matter of rewirering it.
