The EXO-FORMER 24 requires, at a minimum, two separate and independent 15
amp or 20 amp, 120 volt electrical outlets. Therefore, do not use the
EXO-FORMER 24 with outlets rated lower than 15 amps. It is advantageous to
use 20 amp circuits because they have a higher safety margin than do 15 amp
circuits. Also, do not use the EXO-FORMER 24 with electrical outlets that
share a common fuse or circuit breaker.
The HEATER BOX is comprised of two independent 1600 watt (13.28 amp), 120
volt heating elements. Together the heating system has a total of 3200 watts
The FORMING TABLE uses an integrated 1300 watt (10.8 amp), 120 volt VACUUM
When using a HEAT GUN with the EXO-FORMER 24, make sure it is rated at or
below 1500 watts (12.45 amps). HEAT GUNS rated above 1500 watts may melt or
burn thin sheets of plastic if used improperly.
Since most EXTERNAL VACUUM PUMPS that create sufficient vacuum pressure do
not require any more than 15 to 20 amps, we highly recommend that any
EXTERNAL VACUUM PUMP you use with the EXO-FORMER 24 not be rated any higher
Clearly depicted in the chart above (figure 1�) are diagrams of the four preferred
ELECTRICAL CONFIGURATIONS for the EXO-FORMER 24. You will need to choose the
one that best suits your working requirements.
Please note that CIRCUITS A, B and C each represent separate 15 or 20 amp,
120 volt circuits. Also note that CIRCUITS A and B are sometimes depicted as
being shared. While these circuits are shared in terms of their
connectivity, they do not share power because the devices connected to them
are never on at the same time. For example, in practice, you would turn off
a HEATING ELEMENT before turning on the VACUUM MOTOR.
CIRCUIT C is never shared, and is always depicted with only a HEAT GUN
connected to it. This is because the HEAT GUN will be in use while both
CIRCUITS A and B are on, providing power for the HEATING ELEMENTS. If you
attempt to use a HEAT GUN on a 15 amp circuit that is already being used by
one of the HEATING ELEMENTS, the circuit will overload and could cause
either a circuit breaker or a fuse to blow.
