I have a 220 (4 wire) line that I use to power an outdoor pump for my maple syrup.
The 220 at the pump works fine (I also spin off a 110 leg at the pump for some sensors).
The 4 wire goes into a box with a 3 wire 220 outlet and a 110 GFI that uses 1 220 leg, the white common and the ground.
ok so in depth my question is can you use a 240VAC infinite switch like the ones on the stove on 110VAC provided that the load of the 110 circuit does not exceed the original (1500W in my case) application???
What would be the adverse effects?
Would it still trigger the bimetal stripe?
