Digital Time Switch Automatically Turns Lighting Off After Preset Time
SANTA CLARA, CA - March 2004 - The Watt Stopper's TS-400 series digital time switches automatically turn lights off after a preset, user-selectable time out setting. The switches, available in both line and low voltage models, feature terminal style wiring for easy installation and offer users convenient push-button control without the nuisance of twist timers.
The TS-400 (low voltage) and TS-400-24 (line voltage) replace existing wall switches. Users press the ON/OFF button to turn lights on. The switch counts down the time from the preset time-out period (5 minutes to 12 hours) and turns lights off when the time expires. Users can turn lights off during the countdown using the ON/OFF button. An LCD indicates time remaining and an optional alert warns occupants of impending shut-off. A time scroll option allows users to scroll up or down through the possible time-out periods, temporarily overriding the time-out period. Setting the time-out for two hours and time scroll to down allows for California's Title 24 compliance for using override switches.
In addition to controlling lighting, the TS switches can act as an override ON or OFF switch for HVAC and EMS systems. Ideal applications include equipment rooms, storage areas, and closets.
