Help Needed with Wiring an Inline Ducting Heater Please

Postby vidwiz » Sun Nov 13, 2016 10:51 pm

Hi all, I need a bit of help in the electrical department.
I have bought an inline ducting heater just to help keep the temps up as the weather gets colder at night in my kennels.

The problem is that it arrived un-wired to a block connector!

I've put up a pic showing the heater and a diagram of how I think it should be wired so I can run it off a plug.

Can someone please take a look to see if I have it right or put me in the right direction if its not?

I understand that I have to use high temperature wire and connectors between the heater coil and the thermostats.

Am i correct in saying that I should have a 3amp fuse in the plug?

Hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

Simply Build It

Is there an installation manual with it?
If not what make and model is it.

The fuse rating would depend the output rating of the unit.
On your picture it say 500 watt, if that is a 3A fuse would be fine.
500 watts / 230 volts =2.27 amp

Thanks for your reply. It is only 500w so I'm glad I worked out the fuse rating ok.
Here's a scan of the wiring info that came with it.
