Explanation

If I have an SC1008 Branch Circuit ELTS, can I use the 0-10 contactor to trigger a DEBC if there's a loss of power? 

Steps to Solution

Electrically, this will work. The 0-10 contactor can be used to close the circuit when landed to the vout and common on the DEBC. However, it's up to the local AHJ to determine if that will still comply with local codes for UL 1008 and UL 924. 

If local code allows, the wiring would be as shown in the image below:
