I just tried an unusual mounting with a Shelly 1PM.
I connect the SW to the Neutral through a switch, and it works, when the switch is closed, it is correctly detected by the Shelly "as closed".
I looked to the current through the switch, it's about 2mA, but I don't know the tension, maybe about 100V.
When doing the "right" mount, connecting SW to the Live, the current is much lower, about 2µA, and about 3V.
So my questions are :
- Will I kill the Shelly with my unusual mount ? Or is it ok ?
- Will the Shelly overheat, due to the 2mA, maybe 0,2W ?
- Should I insert some resistor in serial with my switch ? Witch value ?
Thanks in advance for your knowledge and replies.
