Timer switch connection wiring:

This diagram shows how to make Timer switch connection wiring. In this circuit, we use 3 DP MCBs ( Double Pole Minature Circuit Breakers ), an RCCB ( Residual Current Circuit Breaker ), an 8-pin timer relay, a magnetic contactor, and four CFL Lights. First, we need to connect the DP MCB with a power source, then connect the RCCB and other DP MCBs with the power source, then connect the timer and contactor, then connect the lights with the contactor.

Components used to make the Timer switch connection wiring:

01. DP MCB:

DP MCB In 2 Pole MCB, switching & protection is affected in phases and the neutral. A Double Pole or DP Switch is a Switch that Controls 2 Circuits at the same time. In terms of Residential Switching, this Normally means it Switches the live and Neutral at the same time. In Layperson Terms, Double Pole switches or DP Switches are Exclusively Designed to Control 2 Different Electrical Circuits at the same time, which allows the Appliances to Isolate safely and reliably. Fan or light Combinations and Medical Equipment are some of the many applications for DP Electrical Switches and Electrical components.

02. RCCB:

The Residual Current Circuit breaker RCCB is the Safest device to detect and Trip against Electrical Leakage current. This ensures protection against Electric shock Caused by indirect contact. Circuit breakers (CB) are automatically Operated Electrical Switches that Protect Electrical Circuits from Short-Circuiting or Overloading systems. It Protects against many major accidents. RCCB Circuit Breaker is an Electrical Wiring device whose function is to disconnect the current in the circuit.

03. Timer: 

A timer is a type of time-switching device that controls and controls Electrical circuits and electrical and electronic devices through time setting (on/off). The timer is basically 8-pin. Like other controlling devices the timer has a coil and when this coil is magnetized, the timer works on/off. The timer has 2 common ends and each common end has normally close and normally open options. When the timer is set by time, the timer trips at the end of that time and turns the common is normally closed (on) to open (off) and normally open (off) to close (on). This is how the timer works.

04. Magnetic Contactor:

A magnetic contactor is an electromagnetic switching device. It is generally used for controlling 3-phase Motors. The operation of a magnetic contactor is similar to that of a Relay. but a relay is used for low-power or low-voltage connections, and a magnetic contactor is used for high-power or high-voltage connections. As soon as the supply is applied to the magnetic contactor coil. its normally open contacts are closed and normally closed contacts are opened and the associated devices are also operated. This is how a magnetic contactor works.

05. CFL Light:

CFL stands for Compact Fluorescent Lamp which is an improved version of tube lights of earlier days. Like tube lights, it is a vacuum glass tube with fluorescent powder coating which is not as long and straight as tube lights but curved/twisted compact, or small in size. Like a tube light, it has electrodes or filaments at both ends. But in this case, instead of a choke, there is an electronic circuit that drives the Compact Fluorescent Lamp. Because the red wave is less in the light of the Tubelight and Compact Fluorescent Lamp, the object looks a little pale or the correct color of the object does not appear.

Frequently asked questions

How is a timer switch wired?

The mechanical time switch is wired into a circuit much like a small appliance circuit diagram with an incoming electrical (LINE) cable connected to screw terminals on the switch, and the outgoing power supply cable connected to LOAD terminals.

Why does a timer switch need a neutral wire?

The neutral wire is used to provide a power supply to the light switch timer for the clock. this does require that you have 3 wires at the junction box (plus earth).

Do all timer switches need a neutral?

Some timers are mechanical and some are electronic. The mechanical ones need only the line to make or break the power supply while the electronic ones need the power supply for their timer circuitry diagram and so need neutral.

What is the principle of the timer switch?

With timer operation, the Time Switch controls the output according to the set ON or OFF times. With pulse output and operation, the Time Switch outputs a pulse of the specified time width at the set ON time. The power supply is turned ON by a Time Switch.

How do you set a light timer switch?

Simply select your desired period and the lights turn on. Once the period is up, the timer turns the lights off. Many timers use light sensors to reset themselves so the lights turn on or off each day. Other timers allow you to set the specific on and off times.
