Digital Timer Switch Electrical Wiring Instructions

By Dave Rongey - Summary:

How to Wire a Timer Switch for Lighting: As described, the wiring will require four wires for the connections to the time switch.

Requirements for Most Digital Timer Switches

Electrical Question: I just bought a Pass & Seymour RT1W Digital Timer switch to replace my simple single-pole switch.

The ground is easy, but do I connect the other THREE(White, Black, and Red) RT1 switch wires to the TWO (Black & White) I have left in my old switch box?

Background: Ron, a Homeowner from Newberg, OR.

    Hi Daniel,
    I will locate the wiring diagrams for an 8-pin relay and post them up on the website which will assist you with your conveyor control project. The exact sequence of operations would be necessary to understand which operation will override the other in order to get the operation sequence correct.

    I have two 8-pin Eaton electronic timers and an 8-pin relay. A three position key switch. In auto mode the first timer will come on and time out after 15 minutes the second timer will keep the conveyor off for 45 minutes. How do I wire these devices together to operate the conveyor. Thanks, Daniel.
