Can you use a photo eye or motion sensor to act as a push button


Yes. You only have to identify the C,NO and NC wires on the motion detector and connect them to the timer.

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

I am looking for a multi function relay similar to the Dayton (1)6A855 but with a 240vac input not 120vac input. Can you assist please. Regards Bruce Peters


1) Dayton 6A855 time delay pin timer
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=dayton+6A855&op=search&Ntt=dayton+6A855&N=0&sst=subset
Grainger owns Dayton, so you might want to contact Grainger

2) Time delay timers at Grainger:
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/wwg/search.shtml?searchQuery=dayton+timer&op=search&Ntt=dayton+timer&N=0&sst=subset

3) Grainger shows time-delay 8-pin 120 or 240V
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DAYTON-Relay-1EJN7?Pid=search
Grainger shows 11-pin 120 or 240V
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DAYTON-Relay-1EJN6?Pid=search

Searching for "11 pin 240Volt delay timer" turned up results:

4) Following pdf shows knob-adjustable 240V delay-on pin timer
https://www.relayspec.com/specs/020050/T1Series.pdf

5) Signaline has delay timers (800) 862-2875

6) SSAC
http://www.ssac.com/standard/ff-tdr1.htm

7) Another pdf with 240V delay pin timers
http://www.askco.com/pdfs/tdd_tud_data.pdf

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.

Wiring. # 2 is neutral # 3 is hot in. # 1 will be hot out when 6&7close


http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Dayton-Off-Delay-Timer.html

You are correct.
#3 is Neutral from breaker
#2 is 120Volt Hot from breaker
#1 is Black wire to load
#6 and #7 are activated with a push button

When activation takes place, the timer turns on power to the load
The timer begins a countdown
The load cannot exceed 1 amp
Power to the load remains ON until the timer countdown is finished

If you have ordinary switch instead of a push button, then you turn on the switch, and timer countdown begins after you turn the switch off.
