2 to 45 minute delay timer module with a triac output for controlling resistive ac mains loads (e.g. lamps, resistors, etc). The output will stay on until the time period has elapsed. The time delay is fully adjustable using an on-board potentiometer.
The timer is activated using a simple contact closure like a push button, etc. (not included). The timer will complete the preset timing period regardless of further trigger signals or if the contacts remain closed after activation. Once finished, a fresh trigger signal is needed to start a new timing period.
An optional INSTANT-ON mode disables the trigger input. In this mode, the the relay turns on and the delay countdown commences immediately power is applied to the board. The relay turns off when the user-set time period has elapsed. Power must be removed and reapplied for a fresh countdown to commence. Instant-On mode is set using a header jumper not included (Order Code JUMPER-RED).
This module is designed for use with conventional mains tungsten (incandescent and halogen) filament light bulbs only. It is NOT SUITABLE for use with LED, fluorescent, CFL, halogen with transformer, neon, low energy bulbs, etc. or any other type of inductive load like transformers, motors, etc. - see relay output version instead (Order Code CI102).Specifications
