Question about Hardware & Accessories
On the timer it shows 1hp 125 vac 5 amp 125 vac tungsten 20 amp 125 vac 10 amp 250 vac is this timer only for low voltage or can I use it to control lights that use 110v
The specs you wrote above are for high voltage.
125 vac = 125 volts alternating current = high voltage
250 vac = 250 volts alternating current = high voltage
110 v = 110 volts alternating current = high voltage
110 v is just another name for 125 vac -- it's called the "nominal" voltage.
So, the answer is yes, this timer can be used for "110 volt lights".
A 60 watt incandescent bulb pulls 1/2 amp when connected to 120 volts -- the spec for your timer looks like is 20 amps @ 125 volts tungsten (tungsten is the filament in incandescent light bulbs) --
I say looks like 20 amps because it's not clear which amperage goes with which voltage. Here are both calculations:
- 10 amps divided by 1/2 = 20 bulbs
- if it's 20 amps: 20 amps divided by 1/2 = 40 bulbs.

1 hp= 750 watts
125 vac = 125 volts alternating current, wall outlets
5 amp= 5amps
125vac x 5amps= 625 watts
a timer is a switch with a clock on it. just like a switch in a lamp cord.
