Nope it is only rated for 120 volts

You would need a Paragon timer that would be rated for 240 volts
kinda sorta like this defrost timer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Commercial-Defrost-Timer-Paragon-8141-20-S814120-40-AMP-2-HP-208-240-Volts-60-Hz-/300933095423?pt=US_Replacement_Parts&hash=item4611029fff

Can i use a 4500 watt on a 208 volt system


Yes
Voltage and wattage printed is on end of each element
If element shows 240V 4500 watt, then element Wattage at 208V is reduced to 3375 watts and will heat 16+ gallons per hour
If element is rated 208 and 4500w, then element will operate at 4500 watt and heat 20 gallons per hour

Wiring a dimmer switch with 208vac, single pole


208 Volt 2-wire is generally achieved by pulling two hot wires off 3-phase 120/208 Wye or 208 Delta, or Highleg to center tap off high leg delta.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-3-phase-electric.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/3-phase-timer-diagram3-T104-208-240.jpg

Since each of these three phase systems also offers 120volt for lights, and a dimmer can be used for lights, then I wonder what you are using dimmer for?

208 volts.can be controlled by turning off one hot of the two hot wires.
Install dimmer on one of the hot wires, and see what happens.
Is the dimmer rated for 208 volts?

Add a comment and say what you discover.

How do I connect my Jandy AE-TI heat pump to my intermatic T104P3


1) Copy following link for wiring illustration ... assuming timer is supposed to control pool pump:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T104-to-contactor.jpg

2) T104P is 240Volt (208-277V) SPDT timer in P plastic outdoor enclosure.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T104

3) Jandy AE-TI is 208/230V pool heater.
http://www.bestbuypoolsupply.com/media/aemanual.pdf

4) Page 13 of Jandy manual shows single-phase residential wiring diagram.

5) First of all, power to main contactor is not interruped by timer, since this powers 24Volt transformer that controls the chip board and general operation.

6) The timer is connected to 'Auto-heat contactor.'
The confusion is what Load connects to this contactor? The water pump? Load is shown on diagram as 'pump time clock.'
I assume the load is the PUMP??

Hello im tryin to wire a dayton model 2yu68 unit heater 208v .30 amp bbreaker with 10 awg 3 wire and simple thermostat and still wont fire up


Are you using this heater for a residential application? 208V is typically only seen in a commercial/residential setting. It would be unusual for a home to be wired in what they call 3 phase which is how a 208 voltage is obtained.

Hope this helps. I would strongly advise that you consult with an electrician as 3 phase voltage is not for the average DIY'r.

I have a Hatco c-6 and it is set up for 208 volts 3 phase hook up and the terminals are labled 1-2-3 in the heater.. I have 3 phase and the wires are from the 3 phase panel to the heater..the wires are...


Thanks for your reply. The order in which you connect the wires 1-2-3 does not matter, all three terminal block screws will accept any one of the hot wires from the breaker, one hot wire per each terminal screw.

I have a new water heater, and the hook up terminals are labled 1-2-3 are they hooked the same as in the panel 1-2-3 ?


No. You have to find out if you have 3 phase or single phase power. If this is a new unit you will find a wiring diagram inside the front cover. 3 phase power has 3 "hot" wires. Single phase has 2 "hot" wires. There is a big difference when you hook it up wrong. I don't know if this is a new installation or if you are replacing an old one. The terminals are numbered for 3 phase. If you look in your breaker box, 3 phase 208 will haven a breaker with 3 spaces hooked together by one bar. Single phase will have two spaces hooked together by a bar. So if the breaker kicks out it will flip all 3 space on 3 phase or 2 spaces on single phase. If you already have wires to the location of the booster heater, you may have to use single phase if that is all that is at that location. If you have single phase power you will have to look at the wiring diagram and you will see the terminal block represented for both single and 3 phase. Normally running from the terminal block will be six wires marked 1 through 6. The wireing diagram will say something like "for single phase put 1,3,5 on terminal 1 and 2,4,6 on terminal 3. Leave terminal 2 out all together. Of course at this point your 2 hot wires will go to terminal 1 and 3. There are other considerations as well. With 3 phase the circuit wires will be smaller gauge and may not carry the current you need for single phase. This is a booster heater. You need to hook up your hot water line to go into the heater and the boosted hot water to your appliance. It will not work to heat your water for other purposes. It is meant to take 140 degree water and boost it to 190 degrees. Good luck, hope this helps

How to wire timer for 208 lighting


The Model T103 is designed for 120VAC. You might just want to purchase a T104 which is already made for 208V use. That would be the simplest and safest solution.

If your incoming power is 120V/208V 3-phase with a neutral, you could try rewiring the timer. Disconnect the timer motor from the contact screws and wire it directly to one phase and the neutral.Then use the two switch poles to control the 208V line wiring. If you have no neutral available you're out of luck. You should probably consult a licensed electrician to avoid any insurance liability.

This site has the 208V timer as well as downloadable instruction sheets for the 100 series.
