Welcome to the forum.

Don't forget to visit us, on here - when you emigrate to Australia, Mate.

Good Luck with that, by the way.

Is This, Any good for you Alan?

Having visited Australia, I'd love to move out that way..

Sadly, circumstances don't make it possible......

hi

the secret here is that the contactor coil is switched/disconnected by various

switches.....

all the stop/overload ones are in series, the main start one is wired in series also

all other remote starts are wired in parallel...

the terminal numberings on them diagrams is international so if you replace a component in a unit you literally connect it the way it was before and it should work- no matter what it physically looks like-a lot of sparks don't realiz:Oe this and fall apart at replacement time when a load of conductors fall out on cover removal!
