Product Questions Answered by Jim, the Sump Pump Expert
Question

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.

Answer
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.

Hallo Jim, CH6000 & CH8000 - witch one to use on a basement sump pump? Igor.

Answer
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.
