Time Delay Relays
Issue: How do I set the THL-8 Series Time Delay Relay?
Solution: All THL-8 Series products come with a specific single time delay range as indicated on the nameplate and by the two-digit code at the end of the Product Number. Setting the time delay is accomplished through the use of a 10-position DIP-switch.
Issue: I am using a TR-61626 Programmable Time Delay Relay with a special pin configuration with the trigger switch between pins 7 and 10 that needs to be replaced but now I am told it is no longer available. What can I do?
Modification to Order a Product that is Normally an 8 Pin Product with 11 Pins (-H Suffix) No Longer AvailableTuesday: December 1, 2015
Issue: In the past I have purchased a time delay relay with the H option, but it is now obsolete. What can I do? Solution/Resolution: We certainly apologize that this option is no longer available and therefore, may cause some inconvenience for you. This option was to take a time delay relay that normally came
Issue: What is the difference between an "Off Delay" & a "True Off Delay" time delay relay, and when is the True Off Delay function used? Solution/Resolution: Pneumatic time delay relays worked great, but they were normally very large & very expensive. In addition, they were only available in two functions: On Delay with Normally
Issue: I have noticed that most time delay relays with functions such as Repeat Cycle, Delayed Interval & ON/OFF Delay have as standard the same range available for both ON & OFF times. I need a 5 second ON time and a 30 minute OFF time, but no available one range covers both times. What
Issue: I have a time delay relay with a trigger switch that is not connected to pins 5 & 6 as shown in your catalog. It looks like my product has some type of special wiring configuration. Is there anyway I can order a drop-in replacement product from Macromatic? Solution/Resolution: While the industry standard for
Issue: What happens if I put a jumper across the control switch terminals (Pins 5 & 6) on the TD-7 Digital-Set time delay relay, but I have the function set to On Delay, which doesn't need a Control Switch to initiate it? Will the unit operate satisfactorily? Solution/Resolution: No control switch is required when the
Issue: I noticed there are different input voltage ratings for the TAA1U & TAA2U products. When did this happen & are there other changes? Solution/Resolution: Early in 2012, Macromatic made two changes to our TAA1U & TAA2U 1/16 DIN Analog-Set Time Delay Relays: The input voltage rating was changed to “100-240VAC & 24-240VDC” from “24-240VAC"
Issue: I am using one of your products that has the control switch trigger between Pins 5 & 6, and the unit is not operating. What could possibly be wrong? Solution/Resolution: Normally when we receive this question, the problem is traced to a blown resistor in the control switch trigger circuit. Most of the time
Issue: I have applied 24VDC input voltage to one of your time delay relays, but the product still doesn’t operate. I know the voltage supply is good. Solution/Resolution: Any of our time delay relays that operate on dc are polarity dependent. This means that it is important to connect the “+” & “-” wires to
