They will be able to provide further assistance and potential solutions for your situation. Please kindly note that the inductive load greater than 3amps can not be plugged into the Outdoor Plug. The Outdoor Plug only supports 3 amps inductive load and 15 amps resistive load.

Does the Yolink Outdoor Plug (YS6802) with 2 output sockets supply 15A per socket, or is it restricted to a total of 15A for both sockets?

Please note that the 15A limit applies to the combined usage of both sockets, not per individual socket.

Is there an electrical limit on the YoLink Outdoor Plug?

Yes, the YoLink Outdoor Plug has specific electrical limits for safe operation:

Input: 15A 125V AC, 50/60Hz

It's essential to adhere to these limits to ensure proper functioning and avoid potential safety hazards. The outdoor plug features a protective circuit (fuse) that helps safeguard the device. However, if the current becomes too large, the fuse will blow, causing the device to malfunction. To restore normal operation, you will need to replace the blown fuse.

Pumps are typically inductive loads. To determine if the YoLink Outdoor Plug is suitable for your pump, you need to know the pump's power rating and starting current. If the starting current is too high, you may need to use a smart relay or an outdoor plug in combination with an additional "dumb" relay to safely control your pump. Please ensure that the pump's specifications are within the limits of the YoLink Outdoor Plug before using it.
