Amperage on Tool outlet CT36
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:20 AM »


I’m confused on the amp rating. If the Kapex is rated at 13.7 amps and the outlet on the CT36 states a max amp of 3.7 how do you use the two.  Heck my Rotex is rated at 5 amps and I’ve never had  a problem.

Perhaps the amps drawn by tools manufactured by companies other than Festool follow a different version of Ohm's law than Festool amps and the rating on the outlet is downscaled proportionally?

 @Eherby   Welcome to the forum!  [smile]

     How long have you been using your Rotex on the CT without a problem?
