RIB02BDC Question


RIB02BDC RIB relay

We will periodically be sharing some of the  questions about RIB relays we get from customers. We hope you find this helpful!

This is a question we recently received from a customer about RIB02BDC.

Will an RIB02BDC relay work with a 240 volt heater turning on and off both phases with a thermostat?

The RIB02BDC is a 20 Amp SPDT relay and therefore will not break both phases of a 240 volt heater. You would need to use an RIB24P (24V Coil), RIB01P (120V Coil) or RIB02P (208V Coil).

Installing a RIB relay

Installing a RIB relay  is straight forward and much easier than installing component parts.  Watch this video to see just how easy it is to use a RIB relay.

I’m going to take a minute today to introduce you to RIB, which is relay in a box.  It is a pre-packaged enclosure for your convenience.  It has an LED indicator to show when the coils have been activated.  It has a nipple mount and 16 inches of 16 gauge wire.  I’m going to show you just how easy it is to mount one of these. This is your enclosure and it has 1/2″ knock outs…
