    That is a lot of current. Strictly speaking this is something you should not do unless you are certified to do such work. Before we resume. You should tell us what you are trying to do in more details

    what i want to do is cycle on / off a 600w light and 2 fans, the amp rating is overkill but i would have thought the higher the rating the longer the contacts will last
