From food and beverage, transportation, energy and infrastructure to commercial and industrial markets, the need for high-power timer applications is huge.
A timer is a simple automation component used to manage actions over a period of time or control how long actions last. As a control device, it triggers an action according to a time and a function. After a predefined time has elapsed, the timer closes or opens one or more contacts.
Timing cycles, whether single shot or repetitive, are started by latching inputs or pulsed inputs, allowing a wide variety of functions to be created.
Which actions can a timer execute?
- Triggering & actuating
A timer can be used to trigger an action according to a predefined time. It can also be used to stagger actions over a period of time.
- Delaying & flashing
In any time-related application, the timer can play a role and can be used to:
- Run installations according to times that can be adjusted by the user.
- Calibrate a machine running time.
- Allow or prevent an action
- Delay an action
- Manage stopping/starting of a motor, pump, etc. (star delta).
- Make an LED flash
What are the main features of a timer?
- Available in mono or multifunction versions analog or digital, with or without memory, to meet the specific needs of each application.
- A timing range of up to 9,999 hrs to cope with prolonged processing operations
- A range of supply voltages from 12 to 240 V in one unit for optimized stocks.
- Recognized quality and reliability ensures the correct operation of equipment.
