Nice timer unit. There is one here that is 0-60 minutes on, 0-60 minutes off. Good for stoker boilers, furnaces. I got one for $54. In the winter just pull it out of the base.

I like the 10,000,000 cycle feature. That's like 1000 years :) Scott

I wonder if they make one with 120V input. This one you'd need a step down transformer to operate it. Cool unit though!

Look at the ordering info. The one that's being discussed is the last one down with the number all the way to the right. 120 volts, perfect for those hard to keep going boilers! :) Scott

Duh! Slap me! I used a timer last year for a project & most were 12 or 24 volt to run the switch. I looked at that chart & thought it meant they all would switch 120V, but ran on 12 or 24 volts. I see you are correct, the last collum is all 120 V, although I think we'd want the 36 - 3600 seconds, not the 360-36,000.

That's right! the 03600 model. They take about 4 weeks to get. Factory ordered and shipped. :) Scott

If you order one, ask if they have a base for them. The timer would plug into the base and that will have screw terminals to wire to. I think they make two types of bases, one solders to a computer board, the other has screws to hold wires. Of course you can chance it and solder right to the pins, but keep the pins pointed up so heat does not go into the unit and solder one, let it cool, solder another. They might make slide on clip thingys that you solder or crimp to each wire and friction fit onto each pin. When I got my little delay timer the base was offered at about $8.

Hey Freddy! Nobody is going to solder onto the ends of the relay pins. If they are they shouldn't be hooking the relay up. The relay bases are the standard 8 pin base and yes the place will sell them for 7-8 dollars. The 03600 relay is 54 dollars on order. The 01800 relays are 70 dollars and in stock. Go figure. What kind of relay do you have? :) Scott

Nobody will solder them? You haven't seen me with a soldering gun in one hand and an $8 savings in the other. ;)

My timer goes from one tenth to five seconds. I'm using it in a relay in my windmill. I have a home made 5,500 watt turbine. When it comes on line the lights would flicker. It was suggested that I try a timer delay switch and a 2,500 watt heating element as an anti flicker device. When the turbine first engages,the timer closes a relay for 6 tenths of a second, the power gets sucked up by the heating element, thus lessening the flicker.

Oh, hey, maybe keep an eye on ebay? I got my timer for $4. It took about 3 months for one to come up.
