Anyone know what the TS2 draws for amperage when running? Couldn't find it on the web site.

I assume you mean the Whole CoalTrol unit? the TS2 is just the Thermostat.

The Power Module/Thermostat itself (without anything hooked to it) probably doesn't draw that much power (<1amp), but with all the blowers & stoker running.. depending on the stove, I wouldn't think more than 3-5 amps total. There is a 10amp fuse on the control box. Each stove has different power requirements.

My Hyfire runs 2 combustion blowers, 2 Stokers and 2 convection fans, I haven't check the total current draw, but I am thinking around the 3-5+ amps. I know my Keystoker draws about 3 amps total with everything running.

Paul can probably give you the exact current on the module itself. I couldn't find in the owners manual.

Right....I meant the control unit itself / power module. Just wondering what its draw is alone. Trying to size a UPS up form stove. Have the amperage draws for the other components.

Most draw thru the relay circuits of the Coaltrol, I wouldn't think the electronics wouldn't draw more than 1 amp.

Very little compared to the motors you are powering. Don't know the figure off the top. Rough guess is less than 5 Watts in the worst case. Negligible compared to the motor draws. Size for how long you want to run the stove motors.
