If the RLA for my compressor is 15.4 would I still go with the 8-16 Sure start or being that close to 16 go with the 16-32 ?

There is a specific app note for that, but I don't remember where it is. Check the documents if you have them.

I just looked at them and don't recall seeing anything about "rounding up" to the next RLA but I'll look at them again , 2nd look and still didn't see anything on the "Selection Guide" or the "Installation Guide"

230 V (240 V) Compressor motor RLA/FLA
If the RLA/FLA is between 8 and 15 amps use SS1B08-16SN.
If the RLA/FLA is between 17 and 32 amps use SS1B16-32SN.

NOTE: If RLA/FLA is 16 amps, check the LRA.
If the LRA is 89 amps or below use SS1B08-16SN.
If the LRA is 90 amps or above use SS1B16-32SN

You'd want to use the 8-16 in this case for sure. Bigger is not always better :wink:
