    Default Bud_Lightyears Variac + atc 800 build (cant source 2 parts)

    Hello everyone.

    So far ive got my 900w led light,rvk 4"+rhino pro filter, variac 1.5 = all thanx to advice given to the gd ppl of this website. Would have made some bad purchases otherwise.
    Still havent got the environment yet. Planning on stealth so maybe large filing cabinet as no fire hazard or bedroom wardrobe. Got a shit load going on at home yet so space not created and got a pilt of other stuff going on.

    I read the legend that is (Bud_Lightyear) post How To Build A Twin Variac & ATC 800 + Fan Speed Controller and thought, thats automatic+im a slob = i need this.

    Ive got the atc 800 from amazon yesterday but cannot source the DPDT Relay or din from maplan. Im clueless with electronics but can follow instrictions clearly if someone smarter has worked out wattages/compatability etc so am givin it a go.

    As I only have one variac fan controller and 1 fan+1 filter, would I need the 10amp DPDT or is best just to get that one?

    Already pushing my luck, but is the Bud_Lightyears guidlines for 2 variacs similar for just the one variac and atc?

    Really appreciate any help. Thanx for your time.

    Your gonna need to source a suitable relay from elsewhere, I think I may have a wiring diagram for a single variac setup, 2 tics I'll have a look for you...

    Ah nice one Bud, I just thought admin didnt let the mssg go through as I didnt have enough posts.

    I can def see other ones but wasnt sure if I need the 10amp as only the one Variac.
