A Quick update
I’ve been rather timid to hook up my new 300w light to the mains relay system - as a matter of fact I was considering a friend help me rig this up as I didn’t trust myself to do it correctly.
After spending a lot of time researching electrical safety and how to deal with high voltage I finally said “just get it over with”, strapped on my rubber gloves and hooked up a functional relay to control all four of the high voltage outputs [lights, heat mat, PSU, aerator].
Here’s a short video demonstrating a simple thing that happens to be a big deal to me
PS: Today I learned not how GFCI (already knew that), but why GFCI.
Next steps :
- Enclusure for electronics
- Removing some reflective tape to hang the new light
