How to wire Dayton Off Delay Timer

dayton off-delay timer Applies to 24 to 240 volt circuits
Do not exceed volt and amp rating
Must be AC voltage. Not rated for DC

Sequence of operation:

Push  momentary-on switch
Countdown begins after momentary-on is released
Dayton timer begins countdown. Load turns ON.
When Dayton timer reaches end of countdown, circuit going to Load is turned OFF

Momentary on switch can be any circuit.
When circuit turns off, then the countdown begins, and runs until countdown is finished.

The Load
Motor, lights, fan cannot exceed 1 amp.
Volts x amps = watts. Amps = Watts Volts. 120 volt 100 watt light bulb = .83 amp
Recommend using contactor

Recommend 1 amp fuse on hot wire going to timer

Use contactor because coil is less than 1 amp:
Match coil voltage and voltage used to operate timer

How it works:
Programmable timer turns on and then off 1 minute later
This activates Dayton countdown
Load runs until countdown ends

120Volt 6A855 Multi-purpose off-delay/ DPDT

1/3 Hp 10 amps @120Volt
10 pin timer with 2 sets NO NC relays

2 knobs on top: use to set time and to set function.
.05 second to 999 minutes
For off-delay, set knob to DOB
Power must be applied continuously to 2 and 10 for timer to function.
Do not apply voltage to push button terminals 5-6.
Example 120V wiring:
Connect 120V Hot to 2 and 1
Connect Neutral to 10 and 11
Connect ordinary push button to 4-5
Connect load Hot to 3 and Load Neutral to 9
Push down on switch momentarily.
When switch is released, Load turns ON, and remains ON until countdown expires, then Load turns OFF

Hot and Neutral connect to A and B.

Install jumper wire between A and 7 to put 120V to timer relay.
When timer is OFF, then NC terminal 1 has power.
When timer is ON, then NO terminal 4 has power, and terminal 1 has no power.
Complete circuit with neutrals at terminal B

To use other terminals:

ICM 102 ON delay timer:
Packard ON delay timer
Input wire connects to terminal 3
Wire to output connects to terminal 1

When voltage is applied to terminal 3, the delay count begins.

When count ends, the circuit between 3 and 1 is closed and voltage flows through timer to the contactor coil.

Set the delay time from .03 minutes to 10 minutes.

To install: cut Y wire from thermostat.
End from thermostat connects to terminal 3.
End going to contactor Load connects to terminal 1.

Buy delay ON: Time delay begins when power is applied to input. After delay, load turns ON and stays ON until power is turned OFF.

LADT2 on delay timer

On delay contactor block

On delay timers are designed to delay start time.
Once the LADT2 timer block activates, the countdown begins.
When countdown ends, the timer's internal relay activates.
When LADT2 relay activates, the NO normally-open contact closes, and NC normally-closed contact opens.
For example, when circuit is 'closed' then power travels across terminals and light bulb turns ON.
When circuit is open, the light bulb is OFF.
NO and NC contacts give two different wiring choices.
LADT contacts are 'dry,' and have no power until Hot wire is added to either the NO or NC terminal.
Contact block attaches to contactor.
When contactor activates, that action activates the LADT2 countdown. LADT series are pneumatic timer attachments.
LADT timer is activated by mechanical action of contactor, instead of electric current.
Adding timer block, allows the contactor to control additional circuit with time delay. So a second process can begin or stop shortly after contactor activates.
