Timer Switch Wire a Circuit
Paola, from the information you have provided, the JVR TL34 Digital Time Switch needs a 12V power supply on terminals 3 and 4 to make the timer work. This could be from a 12V car battery or a plug in power adapter with an output of 12V which should be provided with the JVR Timer. The terminals 1 and 2 can be used to control a load of up to 250volt 16amps, and the normal state of the contacts is normally open, which means whatever is connected to terminals 1 and 2 will not turn on unless the set time has been achieved. Terminals 1 and 2 are nothing more than pair of contacts just like that of a light switch. If you want to control the electromagnet then a power supply must be provided for it, and the positive power wire is wired through terminals 1 and 2. NOTE: The required power for the electromagnet must be less than 250volt 16amps, which is the rating for the contacts on the time switch.
