    I like to believe that myself and staff are pretty intelligent folks but we are having one heck of a time trying to understand how to wire the new CM secure start unit provided by Emerson.

    Has anyone wired one of these in yet? What are we missing? The wiring diagram doesn't make too much sense to me, and I called CM and they were clueless....

  5. Not enough description or information

    Are you talking about capacitor start for a compressor? Are you talking about something connected to a generator? A switching panel?

    I haven't wired one in yet but WF Intellistart is likely similar to CM since both use Emerson / Copeland compressor...maybe WF has a better doc available online...

    Sorry to take so long, slipped my mind.
    We use a product from Five Two One Inc.....'course it doesn't offer brown out protection, but that's already built in to my heat pumps.
