Introducing the EllipseW push button time lag switch from CP Electronics, energy saving device

  2010-10-07         admin         Product News » Switches and Sockets News
The CP Electronics Ellipse push button time lag switch can be an effective direct replacement for an existing light switch - in this way making it a quick and inexpensive unit to install(see the other CP Electronics Timers: time lag switches, multi range timers, and DIN rail switches). The large oval push button makes it an ideal replacement for mechanical or pneumatic time lag switches.

The EllipseW time lag switches made by CP Electronics and found at are a quick and effective way to reduce energy consumption for lighting applications. Pressing the button or touch pad brings the lights on; the lights will then switch off automatically after a preset time period has elapsed. These units do not require a neutral connection, therefore they can be used to replace an existing light switch. The duration of the time delay is set by a thumbwheel on the reverse of the unit. The CP Electronics ELLIPSE/TN version has neon illumination to allow the unit to be located in the dark. These CP Electronics time lag switches can be used in two way and intermediate switching arrangements without any extra wiring.
