Product Substitution

The following product stocked at a distributor can be substituted for the ARP024A3:


ARP024A3R has top-mounted switch for locking in Alternate, LOAD 1 or LOAD B2 position; ARP024A3 does not

Description Of Function In the off state, both the LEAD Switch and the LAG Switch are open, the Alternating Relay is in the LOAD 1 position, and both LOAD 1 & LOAD 2 are off. The red LED marked "LOAD 1" is ON. When the LEAD Switch closes, it energizes LOAD 1. As long as the LEAD Switch remains closed, LOAD 1 remains energized. If the LAG Switch closes, it energizes LOAD 2. When the LAG Switch opens, LOAD 2 is turned off. When the LEAD Switch opens, LOAD 1 is turned off and the Alternating Relay toggles to the LOAD 2 position. The red LED marked "LOAD 2" is ON. When the LEAD Switch closes, it turns on LOAD 2. If the LAG Switch closes, it will energize LOAD 1. When the LAG Switch opens, LOAD 1 is turned off. When the LEAD Switch opens, LOAD 2 is turned off, the Alternating Relay toggles back to the LOAD 1 position, the red LED marked "LOAD 1" is ON, and the process can be repeated. NOTE: the LEAD switch must always close before the LAG switch and must always open after the LAG switch.
