Q: What is the actual voltage in the wire running from the sensor to the plug-in module? It looks way too thin for 120V. My customer wants to use a sensor to activate the pump he had installed in his backyard to remove flooding rain water off of his property.
by Vinny R from Arizona on September 17, 2016

A: The actual voltage from the sensor to the plug is 5 VDC, current limited to about 50 uAmps.
These switches can typically handle pumps rated at Min/Max current of 2.5/14 running amps.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Q: Hallo Jim,

CH6000 & CH8000 - witch one to use on a basement sump pump?


by Igor from Illinois on February 03, 2016

A: Either one will work on a 120V, 14 max amp rated sump pump. The HC6000 gives you the ability to fine-tune your ON & OFF activation points by providing a sensor for each activation point. The HC8000 provides you with a single sensor that is used to activate your pump. Once activated, the pump will evacuate water till the pump loses prime or starts sucking air.

Great Product
I had to install one of these in a 12 in. basin with a sump pump where size was an issue. Easy to install and works like a dream. Only improvement I would recommend is to make the plug smaller so that an outdoor receptacle cover plate would close all the way shut.
