CP Electronics MRT16-WP - touch activated Weatherproof multi-range time delay switch

  2011-01-21         admin         Product News » Switches and Sockets News
The CP Electronics MRT16-WP and the CP Electronics MRT16-WP/TN are two touch activated weatherproof timers. The MRT16-WP time delay switch is operated by pressing the tamperproof touch sensitive pad on the front of the switch. The unit is mounted in a durable IP66 enclosure and is designed for outdoor use or where moisture is present. Ideally suited for outdoor heaters and outdoor spas. The CP Electronics MRT16-WP/TN time delay switch has a temporary neon indicator to show when the timer is running.

The CP Electronics MRT16 series of time delay switches are designed to provide timed control of lighting, heating or ventilation loads. Using touch (light press required) activation the user can switch on a load for a preset time period and have the load turn off automatically after the time period has elapsed. Multiple timing ranges come as standard to allow the time out period to be set accurately. Time setting is achieved using switches and a thumb-wheel at the rear of the unit.

CP Electronics MRT16-WP Time Delay Switch - modes of operation

  • On/off: triggering the timer will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will immediately turn off the load and stop the timing.
  • Resetting: triggering the timer will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will re-start the timing period from scratch. When using an external trigger In this mode, the timer will not start until the trigger is removed making it ideal for pump or fan overrun applications.
  • Non-resetting: triggering the timer will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will have no affect. Optional neon indicators provide permanent illumination or illumination during the timing period.
