Hi all - For several years I have used a Linear FS20Z-1 with webCore to turn my dehumdifier on and off. Basically my piston acts like a humidstat. When my piston sees the humidity it too high, it turns on the FS20Z-1. Two wires from the FS20Z-1 are connected to a terminal on the dehumidifier. When the dehumidfier see voltage there, it runs, and when the voltage drops off, it turns off. At least, that’s how I think it runs.
I believe in this application what I need is a latching relay, if I’m using that term correctly. In that I want the dehumidifer to see the voltage all the time, until I tell the Zwave switch to turn off. Do I have this right?
I was hoping to get some recommendations for a replacement, since it seems the FS20Z-1 may not be used much and is harder to get. It looks like the MIMOLite may do the trick? Are there any others to consider?
So it looks like I would leave the jumper on so that it works as a latch. However I’m unsure of how to do the wiring from the MIMOLite to the dehumidifier. All the MIMOLite instructions say is “Connect monitored signal to SIG1 (P1, labeled – and +) and relay contacts NO/NC/COM on P4.” In my case would I use SIG1 or NO/NC/COM and how?
Thank you for any help you can provide.
