Wiring a dayton timer relay

I am putting a timer relay in-line with a momentary pushbutton to hold power for 2-3 seconds. how exactly do i wire this. I am using 120 VAC to control a solenoid valve which raises a pneumatic piston up. I am using a Dayton time relay (grainger p/n: 5YZ86 on a base p/n: 5X852) I have a Dayton 1EJP3, 10 pin off delay relay I would like to have the coil powered by a photo cell eye to control my exterior lighting. If I am understanding this correctly I should put my coil power, 110vac, from the cad cell eye to A and B/. This should pull the relay sending line voltage from 1 and 3 through to 7 and 9 load terminals, correct? Then the relay should begin to time finally out opening the circuit? The coil will remain in a rest state until power is reestablished to A and B when the PC eye closes again the next evening, Correct? If not please correct my misunderstanding.

SOURCE: wiring a dayton timer relay

If i understand you correctly you want to push the button, release it and have the timer give power to the solenoid for 3 more seconds, correct? If this is the case you will need an off delay timer. On delay timers work like this. You push the button, power goes through the timer, at this point the timer starts counting, when the timer reaches its preset point,(3 seconds we'll say) the contacts change till the power to the timer goes off.

If you hook this up with an on-delay timer this is what will happen:
Push the button and release, the timer will tick as long as you hold the button down, till three seconds, then the solenoid will raise until you release the button.

With an off delay this will happen: push button , solenoid begins working, when button is released timer counts 3 seconds while solenoid is still working, then removes power to the solenoid.

The way you would wire the off-delay is like this:
Connect line side of your pushbutton(incoming power side),incoming power and terminal 1 on your base together. next connect the load side (outgoing power side) of your pushbutton and terminal 2 on your base together. Connect terminal 3 to the hot wire or terminal on your solenoid. Lastly connect terminal 7 the incoming neutral wire and the neutral wire or terminal of the solenoid together.

I am telling you how to wire it in my head, if you'll write back with some specifics such as what wire you will use, where your getting power from,what the solenoid current draw is and such i can get a little more detailed. maybe it will make more sense.

Also make sure the timer and pushbutton are rated to handle the solenoids running current. The timer appears to handle 10 amps im not sure what you pushbutton can handle. Also keep in mind the solenoid will operate for whatever time u set it to, after the button is released. There are other ways to do it but this would be the most economical way.

And of course turn the breaker off and test that it is off before working on the circuit. Write back with any problems.

We have a 1EGD1 dayton timer delay relay what is the wiring diagram


Open following link to identify timer:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=1EGD1&op=search&Ntt=1EGD1&N=0&sst=subset

This is typical 8 pin delay timer relay.
The wiring diagram appears on side of the timer.
Open following link for example how to wire 8-pin timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Connect-relay-to-timer.jpg

Example shows 24Volt, but 120Volt wires exactly the same.
The timer is 120Volts. So connect power to terminals 2 and 7.
Other terminals are dry, and receive no power when 120V is connected to 2 and 7.
In the example wiring, the objective is to have power connected to Load at all times except when timer activates. So power is connected to terminal 1 and Load wire is connected to terminal 6.
If the objective was to have power connected to Load only when timer turns ON, then connect power to terminal 1 and connect Load wire to terminal 3.

You want 3 minute 'off delay' timer.
When timer is energized with push button or momentary electrical signal, circuit remains ON for set amount of time, and then turns OFF.

Aug 15, 2011 Dayton/ Grainger website is offline

Most delay timers have 1 amp capacity rating, so circuit needs fast acting 1 amp fuse, and timer controls separate relay or contactor unless Load is equal to 100 watt light bulb.

To palaboy: when you talk about a switch on the left most terminals, you mean with this switch im enable the timer???


Question is not clear.

You posted about Dayton on-delay timer?
This timer has two contacts, and wires similar to a light switch.
Connect 120V power to terminal 1
Connect wire going to load to terminal 3
Maximum Load is 1 amp so this timer should be wire to a contactor/relay and not directly to Load.

If you have Dayton off-delay timer, open following link for wiring diagram, and to see examples of contactors:

If you have a different timer, then add a comment with clear description of timer or in-focus photo of timer posted on Flickr

8) Not wanting to say what already know, but each 240V circuit is made from two out-of-phase 120V lines. Any 240Volt Load can be turned OFF by turning off one of the 120V lines. In this way, the Dayton 120V timer can be used to control 240V load.
Also the 120V Dayton can operate 120V double-pole contactor, and then the contactor controls 240V Load.

On terminals 6 & 7 do you need to apply a power source? is terminal 2 the hot from breaker and #3 the neutral terminal?


Following page has Dayton timer wiring:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Dayton-Off-Delay-Timer.html

Terminals 6 and 7 are wired with 120Volt power as shown.
The push button gives momentary impulse of electricity to timer.
Timer activates when impulse of electricity ends.
Timer activation turns Load ON and begins countdown.
When countdown expires, timer turns Load OFF.

Terminal 2 is 125V Hot from breaker.
Terminal 3 is Neutral.

Terminal 1 goes to Load.
Load cannot exceed 1 amp.
So Dayton timer can only control single 100 watt light bulb, or it can control 120Volt coil on contactor.
Contactor turns on Load with any voltage: 120, 240, 277, etc or 3 phase contactor.


Suggest busman in-line 1 amp fuse between terminal 1 and Load to protect timer.

Is the button NC or NO? I have it currently wired this way but still it does not work and I'm using a switch not a button. Any suggestion?


The switch is OFF or NO normally open
See wiring diagram at following link
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Dayton-Off-Delay-Timer.html

The way the timer works is this::
You click switch ON
When you turn switch OFF, the Dayton begins the timing sequence
The Dayton turns on the circuit going to load for 1/2 second => 5 minutes depending on model of Dayton timer

Grainger sells 120V push buttons if you don't want to turn the switch on-and-off each time

I have a 6a859 relay, does the 120 power lead go on 2 or 3?

Your load cannot exceed 1 amp

You'll need to connect load wires to a contactor or relay that has 120V coil

Local HVAC supply carries contactors
Grainger has contactors 120V coil and 25 amp across terminals
Fasco H230A with 120V coil and 30 amp across terminals
