Have your lights stopped working? No longer hearing the soft “thunk” of your lights toggling back and forth? Signs you might a worn-out relay! Touch Plate’s 3000-PL Relay is a 4-Wire Low-Voltage Relay. The cylindrical relay is directly mounted to the switching block and 7” pilot wires extend from the top.
The 20 Amp 3000-PL relay is a mechanically latching relay utilizing “Contact Closure” low- voltage switch technology. The relay only switches directly ON/OFF, this feature is technically known as “Single Pole, Single Throw” (SPST).
3000-PL Relay is a direct replacement for part number(s): 1550B-PL, 2500-BPL, & 4000-PL.
(there is a difference in the size of the switching block (base) with the older models)
Touch-Plate systems installed between 1946 and 1985: Previous generation relays had 8 wires, 4 low-voltage wires extruding from the top of the cylinder. You then connected these wires to the switches. Then, 2 wires extended from the bottom connect that connected to line-voltage.
After 1985, The 3000-PL Relay. You can mount the line-voltage feed wires into the screw terminals on the switching block. The 2 attached wires are still connected to your switch.
Note: The line-voltage terminals are not polarized. It does not matter which terminal you feed your line-voltage into.
