You definitely need to get in touch with someone that's well versed in the field. Play guessing games and you'll have quite a rough time.Rampage98 wrote: ↑Tue Jan 10, 2023 6:49 pmThank you for the replies guys. So it looks like i'll be building my own controller. The biggest challenge i'm finding is finding a soft starter that is rated for 60 amps & single phase. Siemens, Schneider, Allen-Bradley, etc don't make any for those specs but i might have found one made by Carlo Gavazzi. I need to read the spec sheet to be sure and they are 29 weeks out for back order. I questioned tech support at Federal about the 60 amps and suggested that was start up current & he said no, they will pull 50+ amps when running... I'm welcome to any more ideas and i'll post updates of success for anyone else planning on building their own. Thanks again guys!

Synther: My reply back from Federal tech support is that they quit making the RC5 decades ago.

Just so you know what i'm capable of, i'm a retired electronics computer tech with 31 yrs at the Boeing Co in Seattle working robotics & cnc machines in equipment maintenance. I have returned home to my small town in Columbia Falls, Montana to have fun, and as you can guess it, restoring our local fire dept's hall siren as my first hobby project. I will get this going & i appreciate all the comments and the info from everyone. Cheers!
