Question about Computers & Internet
I have a 110VAC 60 cycle timer made by Bliss-Eagle Signal out of Davenport, Iowa. It says Cycl-Flex on the face of it. It's a 0-30 minute timer. It is a Type HP55A6 and Model 4D68. The Patent number on it is D189917. The Patent date is 3/21/61 and it was filed 2/25/59 with Ser# 54737. It was a 14 year patent. I tried to find it on the USPTO.gov (US Patent and Trademark Office web site). All it showed there was a drawing of the timer unit itself (no schematic or instructions).
I figured out the layout of the contacts, but I'm not real sure about where to hook up the controls. There's some printing on the back of the timer that shows the contacts and the motor controls, but the motor control part is confusing without the instructions. I don't want to take a chance of hooking up the 110 volts incorrectly and ruining the timer.

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.

Intermatic C8835 is 120Volt 30-minute cycle timer, which repeats same timing cycle every 30 minutes.
Timer has NO and NC terminals.
You will not use the NC normally closed terminal for this application, so no wire will connect to far left NC screw.
Green wire on green screw is correct, so you have started off well.
Bare copper wire also connects to green screw, so no more talk is needed about ground wires.
If you are using 240V or 277V, then add a comment and we'll lay out a plan for that wiring.
Wiring below is for 120V only.
You have 2 120Volt cables.
1) One cable comes from circuit breaker and has 1 black and 1 white wire.
The black 'line' wire connects to 'switch common' terminal, which is 3rd screw from left.
The white 'neutral' wire connects to 'clock' terminal, which is 4th screw from left.
2) The second cable goes to coal stoker, and has 1 black and 1 white wire.
The black wire connects to Normally Open or NO terminal which is 2nd screw from left.
The white wire connects to Clock terminal, which is 4th screw from left.
Notice that both white wires connect to same screw.
