View Full Version : Help on wiring Icecap 660

01/20/2000, 08:27 AM
Hi all,

Sorry, but some of these questions will probably seem stupid, but I have no concept of wiring, etc.

I just bought an Icecap 660 ballast. I have all the necessary endcaps, and I have the wiring diagram that came with the Icecap. I believe I can follow the diagram, but I am not sure how to actually connect the wires to the endcaps, and how I need to wire a plug to the ballast itelf (so I can plug it into the wall).

Thanks for your help

You can call us at IceCap, 800-742-3227 ext. 25 or 15. As far as your endcap question, assuming you have VHO type endcaps, the partially stripped wires are inserted in the base of the caps which grab the bare wire. The order (which side) doesn't matter.
As far as the plug, if you go this route, use a heavy duty appliance grade 3 prong plug and plug it into an actively grounded wall socket. Alternatively, IceCap's digital timer (15 amp Max.)is an option and comes with its own plug. (see www.icecapinc.com) (http://www.icecapinc.com))
If you use another timer, make sure it's over 10 Amp 3 prong type sold for air-conditioners.

That is great when the manufacturer responds to a question that quick.

Thanks for the response, Andy. I will give it a try when I go home for lunch, and if I have other questions I will call you.

Thanks again,
