Timers

There are many applications where a timer is important. HVAC equipment, freezers and even lighting in an industrial setting often needs to be placed on a timer so that it will turn on when required, and turn off when not needed. Timers help protect power supplies by eliminating unnecessary stops and starts of equipment, and they can also help lower energy use by turning off equipment automatically. Grainger offers timers for many different applications, so today's businesses can be energy conscious while still benefiting from their electrical equipment.

I want to switch between two condensing units. After one has run so many hours, I want it turned off and another one turned on. Then when it has run so many hours, I want it turned off and the previous one to come on. Will be wired in to the control circuitry so there is very limited amperage. Will be a 240 volt circuit. What do you recommend?

We use metal detectors on all 7 packing lines and performance checks of each metal detector are required every hour. This has to be performed every hour and documented. I was looking for some type of alarm that would serve as a reminder (sound) that check needs to be performed and could be reset either with a key or push button by operator.

I'd like to set it for 15 minutes to 6 hours and have it count down and stop the mixer. 15 Minute increments would be nice. One that can control multiple mixers would even be better.

I am looking for a timer with for use on projectors. Something that is plugged into a "hot all the time" outlet and a "switched" outlet. When switched outlet goes hot output turns on. When switched outlet goes off, the output is delayed approximately 10 minutes before shutting off. I could make one but thought it would be easy to find one pre-made. Boy was I wrong. This setup allows projectors and other equipment to be "turned off" but still allow time to cool down. Anybody seen anything like this let me know. Thanks.

Answer: 
Unfortunately Grainger does not currently stock anything like the timer you describe. The biggest issue to overcome is how to store the necessary power within the timer that will allow the load to continue to operate without a voltage presence.

Answer: 
If the bulb and the fan are switched seperatly, it shouldn't too hard.
If they are, and not actually seeing the unit, a simple off-delay timer is all that is needed.
You turn on the unit as usual. When you turn it off the time delay keeps the fan running for the pre-set time and turns off. It all resets when power is applied next time.
The power wires to the fan will need to be seperated out and run to the timer, probably in a outboard small box.

I have a sailboat with an automatic bilge pump. When I come aboard, I want to see how many seconds the bilge pump ran when I was away. Display should be 5 digits or more. It needs a reset button to set it back to zero. My sailboat runs on 12 Volt DC. It would be nice if it was flush mounting LCD display that would use no electricity when it wasn't switched on by the bilge pump running. Maybe it could have a button that shows the reading when it isn't running, then lets it go dark when the button is released.
