Finder’s Astro Time Switch Saves Energy Wherever You Are

Astro

Where the need exists to control lighting, temperature or other functions according to daylight hours, Finder’s Astro 12.81 time switch is an innovative, easily programmable time switch, which employs a unique digital program to calculate sunrise and sunset times by simply entering the location’s postcode with a single joystick. Its newest version now offers added flexibility, with the capability to override the Astro ON time with time-switch settings, thus further avoiding energy wastage.

With ever increasing pressures to reduce energy consumption, the Astro will control lighting, heating/cooling and humidity equipment in commercial, residential and industrial applications wherever sunrise and sunset times are critical in determining operational times, or where stipulated by local or national regulatory requirements.

The Astro’s micro-controller stores postcode data from 16 European countries, including the UK, which together with date information allows for the precise calculation of seasonal sunrise and sunset times. The Astro is also programmable using geographical coordinates, settable between 30°S and 64°N; 16°W and 50°E. The Astro will also automatically compensate, should European Summer Time be enabled.

For further versatility, the output switching can be advanced or retarded about the calculated sunrise (or sunset) time in 10-minute increments — up to a maximum of 90 minutes. A manual override of the output status allows for maintenance or one-off events.

With a 16 A 250 V AC rated output contact and a 120 A 5 ms peak current rating, the Astro time switch is capable of directly switching 2000W halogen, 750W compensated fluorescent, 200W CFL or LED lamp loads and AC15 loads up to 750VA.

The integral back-up battery, which is easily replaceable from the front, features an automatic power save mode which helps extend battery life.

Finder Introduces Its New 83.52 Multi-Function and Multi-Voltage Timer

Finder.jpg

Finder new 83.52 Multi-Function and Multi-Voltage Timer incorporates eight of the more specialised timing functions.

8352 Series

Utilising microprocessor electronics, the 83.52 is suitable for applications where it is necessary or desirable to have the timing period remotely adjustable – through the remote potentiometer facility. For example, for control of public showers, using the SHp, so called ‘shower’ function, or for other coin-triggered applications in general.

The timer may also be used, for example, where pool table lighting is controlled by a 83.52 mounted within the customer accessible coin acceptance box, but the time itself is controlled from behind the bar.

The output contacts are configurable as two timed, or one timed and one instantaneous, eliminating the need for an additional relay in self-hold applications.

Finder’s new 83.52 provides panel builders, systems integrators, OEMs and individual electricians with a more flexible and economical off-the-shelf solution to virtually any timing application.

Crouzet Control Presents Redesigned Chronos 2 Timers, Level & Phase Control Relays

Crouzet

7 new Chronos 2 Timers, 2 new Level Control Relays and 2 new Phase Control Relays are now available in a more compact DIN Rail package ideal for modular use

Crouzet Control, a brand of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST), is pleased to announce the availability of 11 redesigned Chronos 2 Timers and Control Relays now available in an improved DIN rail modular housing with the same profile as the Crouzet C-lynx product family.

The 7 new 22.5 mm DIN Rail mounted Chronos 2 Timers (RA2R1, RQR1, RQR6, RU2R1 RU2R3, RU2R4 & RX2R1) replace timers previously offered in a 22.5 mm wide industrial housing. The new 22.5mm DIN rail mounted housing is also similar to the new 17.5 mm Chronos 2 Timers featuring the same terminal block position for perfect panel alignment. The new 22.5 mm timers also feature 2 SPDT relays rated at 8 A / 250 VAC and are just 8 mm higher than the 17.5 mm version with one output relay. New Chronos 2 timers have the same rated supply voltage and electrical specifications as previous industrial housing versions.

ENR and ENRM Level Control Relays have also been redesigned in a new 22.5 mm DIN Rail housing replacing 22.5 mm wide industrial models. A new universal supply voltage of 24 to 240 VAC VDC allows them to replace 8 existing part numbers with similar or improved features per model.

The new 17.5 mm MWS Phase Control Relay featuring an 8 A output rating replaces both the 17.5 mm MWS and 22.5 mm EWS series. The redesigned 22.5 mm EWS2 replaces the existing EWS2 featuring a more compact housing allowing modular installation.

All new Chronos 2 Timers and Control Relays are C-UL-US Listed, CE certified to the IEC Low Voltage Directive and compliant with the RoHS Directive.

clogo.jpg

Crydom’s proprietary thermal management technology and proven Solid State Relay expertise are now combined with advanced uP based timing in the new “SeriesOne DR” Timer line offering models with exceptional Solid State output ratings of either 6 amp AC and DC and 8 different precision timing functions with 18 variations in a compact 11mm wide DIN Rail mounted package designed for the direct control of a wide variety of resistive and inductive loads.

Crydom’s renowned Solid State Relay technology is now available combined with 8 different Microprocessor based timing functions including a total of 18 possible timing variations. Ideal for use in control panels for direct control of contactors, solenoids, motors, heaters, lights, etc. The SeriesOne DR Timer series is available with either 6 amp/24 to 280 VAC output rating or 6 amp/1 to 60 VDC output rating, both at 40°C ambient temperature…. ratings well in excess of most Solid State Output Timers in the market today, therefore allowing direct control of many loads thus eliminating the need for interfacing power relays often required for use with lower power timers.

Available timing functions include “A” & “At” delay on make, “B” single shot, “C” delay on break, “H” & “Ht” interval, “L” & “Li” repeat cycle, and “U” multifunction that includes A, At, Ac, B, Bw, C, D, Di, H, and Ht functions. Basic timing function selection is user settable via screw slot rotary switches on the side of the SeriesOne DR Timers, while unit and fine timing adjustments are made on the front panel of the Timers. This arrangement provides easy access to Technicians for simple timing adjustments but significantly reduces accidental changes to the basic function.

Control for the SeriesOne DR Timers, depending on model, is 12 to 24 VAC/DC for all models, with options of either 90 to 140 VAC or 180 to 240 VAC for AC outputs only. All Crydom SeriesOne DR Timers are UL listed and cUL recognized, UL Motor Control rated, RoHS and China RoHS compliant, and CE certified to the Low Voltage and EMC Directives.
