With its 3-wire specification, the MRT16-WP touch-activated timer is suitable for a range of loads with increased safety. 

CP Electronics MRT16-WP IP66 Touch-activated Timer Switch - Features

  • The CP Electronics MRT16 series of time delay switches are designed to provide timed control of lighting, heating and ventilation loads. 
  • Using touch (a light press is required), 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.
  • Pressing the "Touch" are of this weatherproof switch activates the circuit and starts the timing period (this is easily adjustable and is set at installation to any time between 1 second and 2 hours). 
  • The time setting is achieved using the switches and a thumbwheel at the rear of the unit. 

There are three main modes of operation selectable using switches:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Non-resetting: triggering the time will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will have no affect.
