Nice install.  I assume this is for your dust collector?

I keep my remote clipped to my front pants pocket. Nothing worse than being in the shop late at night, remote clipped on while working at the bench and they make contact. The noise creates a close to pee moment.

I used some cheap remotes and went through two sets before I stopped with the cheap stuff. I may try that setup, although I’m not sure I’d leave those contacts exposed. They appear to be, in the picture?

There is a transparent plastic yellow cover over them. I used forked spade lugs on the wire ends for a reliable connection.

I am considering a plastic box for the unit as I really don't like dust on electronics. I didn't begin with a box because I wasn't certain about its size.

A transparent thermostat cover might be just the thing.

that is very interesting . what are it's limitations ? I looked at the link and I was not sure .

The title says it all -- 30A is plenty for small & medium dust collectors. And it has a wide voltage range for US or Euro voltages.

I usually leave mine on my table saw fence. One place, easy to find and return. Since this came with two I'm thinking one might go on the planer and the one on the fence may get a magnet glued to the back just to prevent accidents.

Electronics are cheap any more. The original cheap one I got has dropped from $18 to $12. This is definitely a step up from that one.
