Question about Hardware & Accessories
I need to buy or build a 12V DC duty cycle circuit. More specifically, I'd like to have a circuit or relay that can set separate run and off times to control a small light duty compressor filling up a larger tank. I'm looking for a run time adjustable to maybe 1 to 15 minutes, then an off time of maybe 5 min to 1 hr. Anyone know of an existing product, or decent circuit that I can build. I am semi familiar with relays like the Dayton 6A855, and magnecraft TDRSOX/SRX Time Delay Relays. but I want to be able to set the on /off times seperately. not sure if I can easily do it with those type relays.
Consider the use of timers used in lawn irrigation sprinklers they turn on and off at set times and are low voltage units

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.

found a reference to the relay class I was in need of information on here:http://www.hauntedattraction.com/38/currentissue_workshops.shtml describing a particular circuit r&d that I could equate to my dilemma... took a little mapping out of the schematic as I read, but wasn't too difficult to correlate. It pays to persevere in your googling methods ;-)

SOURCE: i have a lighting control
Usually whn you get a chattering like that you have a bad neutral...therefore a low voltage condition...
Check for a loose wire or a bad wire but connection... also maybe try to run an isolated neutral to that coil...
The other thing that can cause that is if the hot wire for that coil is run through another coil instead of running in parallell...the coil cuts the voltage... it maybe that something is wired wrong and that is what is happening...

SOURCE: We have a Dayton Relay,
Instructions on link below
Maximum Load wattage on Dayton is 1 amp.
So timer will work with 10 watt load.
Push button is 120Volt.

SOURCE: I am looking for a
1) Dayton 6A855 time delay pin timer
Grainger owns Dayton, so you might want to contact Grainger
2) Time delay timers at Grainger:
3) Grainger shows time-delay 8-pin 120 or 240V
Grainger shows 11-pin 120 or 240V
Searching for "11 pin 240Volt delay timer" turned up results:
4) Following pdf shows knob-adjustable 240V delay-on pin timer
5) Signaline has delay timers (800) 862-2875
7) Another pdf with 240V delay pin timers
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.

Full Intensity Mode: This mode is used by features that require full low beam headlamp intensity such as low beam headlamp operation in manual or auto modes (nominal: 100% duty cycle).
Off Mode: This is the default mode of the system that will occur when none of the features described above are active. The BCM will deactivate its PWM output (0% duty cycle) during this mode.
The normal battery voltage input to the HDM must be between 6 and 16 volts DC to operate. Any deviation to these values could cause improper operation.
Major components of this system are the BCM, HDM, ambient light sensor, multifunction switch, park brake switch and low beam headlamps.
DTC B2575 Headlamp Control Circuit
When the body control module (BCM) senses a request for headlamp or daytime running lamp (DRL) illumination, the BCM sends a pulse width modulated (PWM) ground signal to the low beam headlamp driver module through the low beam headlamp driver module control circuit. The low beam headlamp driver module will illuminate the headlamps, adjusting the intensity based on the PWM signal received
You best bet is to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer >
