208-240Volt/ or 480 Volt

T1906 and T1976 control 240Volt Load

Same wiring applies to 208 thru 240Volt
NO terminal is normally open. NO turns 'on' with timer settings. This terminal used for water heater circuit shown on left.
NC terminal is normally closed. NC turns 'off' with timer settings.

Use 12 gauge wire for 20 amp timer

SPDT single pole, double throw.
Only one Hot leg is turned off.

120 Volt

Same wiring applies to T1905 timer and T1975 timer

Only difference between these two timers is the day skipper wheel on T1975

NO terminal is normally open. NO turns 'on' with timer settings. This terminal used for water heater circuit shown on left.
NC terminal is normally closed. NC turns 'off' with timer settings.

Timer turns off Black hot wire, so 120V water heater has no electricity when timer is off.

Wires at 120V water heater: Connect black-to-black and white-to-white wires at water heater.

T1905 controls 2 loads

120 Volt/ control 2 loads

Same wiring applies to T1905 timer and T1975 timer

Only difference between these two timers is the day skipper wheel on T1975

NO terminal is normally open. NO turns 'on' with timer settings. This terminal used for water heater circuit shown on left.
NC terminal is normally closed. NC turns 'off' with timer settings.

For T1906 and T1975, White wire is Hot
For T1905 and T1975, White wire is Neutral

208-240V / or 480V control Two Loads

T1906 and T1976 control two Loads

Each Load is same voltage ranging from 208Volt to 277Volt
Neither Load is turned ON at same time. Either NO Load or NC Load is active, but not both same time.

Bare ground wires connect to green screw.
When using White wire to carry Hot, then add black tape to tell next electrician that wire carries voltage.

To control different voltages, use timer with dry terminals such as GM40.

T1906 timer controls 2-speed pump
Larger image

208-240V/ control 2-speed pump


Low speed is connected to NC terminal, and then pump operates continuously in low speed until timer turns ON.
When timer turns ON, High speed turns ON.
Diagram applies for both 120V and 240V 2-speed pool pumps.
Always check pump voltage and wiring diagram located on nameplate
Other timers can be used for 2-speed pool pump:
Resource:

Intermatic GM40, GE 15207 series, T106 timer, Tork DTU40 timer
Pump operates continuously. Install another timer on White Hot-neutral line to turn pump ON-OFF
Buy Trippers 12 pack
156T1950A trippers at Amazon

How to set timer:
Insert trippers into dial. Push tripper fully down. Each tripper represents 15 minutes. Standard package arrives with 12 trippers. Insert 12 trippers in a row represents 3 hours. Insert 4 trippers in a row represents 1 hour.
Trippers push on-off lever. The on-off lever opens and closes electrical contacts that send power alternately to NO terminal or to NC terminal.
Either the NO terminal has power -or- the NC terminal has power. One terminal or the other terminal is ON at all times, and when one terminal is ON the other is OFF.
To set time: Rotate dial until current time lines up with stationary silver pointer or timer arrow.
Use manual override lever to reverse on-off operation. Timing sequence resumes at next tripper.
Remove all trippers to override timer operation.
