How to wire the contactor just to switch on and off

  1. Mar 24, 2017 #1
    I am first time using a contactor. I have a 3-phase contactor with me, Need to switch on and off without any load connected. It has two auxiliary terminals A1 and A2, for just to turn on how it should be connected?

    Auxillary contacts are typically not meant to switch the load. They are a set of contacts meant to connect with control circuit wiring.
