Looks like a magnetic contactor with an overload heater on each side - each pole. Commonly used in starter, control and protection circuits on industrial motors.

If you got a larger photo, uplink it. It may have some delay circuitry on it too. I can confirm it once I can read the contactor nameplate.

It's probably being used to control a heavy 240 V load. It wouldn't be an AC condenser because the control voltage is 120 V instead of the 24 VAC used in resid thermostats.

I dunno Mike. People do strange things sometimes.
