Applications Guide: Relays, Flashers and Timing Controls
Here are a few of Amperite’s product applications. To see more go to the Applications Guide.
Triggered Delay-On-Release TDR (CR, CR10, DCR10, STB Series)
Elevator Door Control
It is necessary that an elevator door’s closing be delayed for a specified time after the last passenger has entered or exited the elevator. The triggered delay-on-release timer can be used, in conjunction with a photoelectric sensor, to delay the closing of the door.
Garage Door Opener Light Control
Operation of a garage door opener typically illuminates the interior of a garage. The triggered delay-on-release relay can be used to provide automatic lamp shutoff after the desired time period has elapsed.
Recycling timer / Flasher (D, DF, DF10, DFS, DFV, DFWS, SEQ Series)
Any of the recycling flashers may be used to control an electric sign when it is desired to produce a contact on/off sequence for increased awareness. The DFW and DFWS series are capable of controlling two sections of the sign, providing and alternating effect.
The SEQ series is used to sequentially power individual loads, such as incandescent lamps. Units are available for two to four load circuits. Load current rating is 5 amperes. Typical applications include airport runway illumination, theater marquees and car wash signs.
Programmable Recycling Timer / Flasher (DFA/HDFA Series)
Electrical Equipment Burn-In
The DFA and HDFA series relays may be programmed for a desired “OFF” time and “ON” time. This can be used to run a piece of equipment for a specified time, and then shut off for a different specified time. The relay will cycle the equipment in this manner to provide on and off cycling for electrical burn-in tests.
Water or Sprinkler Control
A water valve or pump may be operated for a specified time and then automatically shut off. The cycle will then repeat in accordance with the programmed on time and off time.
Brake Light and Headlamp Pulsators for Motorcycles and Other Vehicles
The Amperite STOP-ALERT Pulsator provides a rapid, continuous pulsating or glimmering effect on vehicle stop lamps. The STOP-ALERT 2 and STOP-ALERT 2M provide a series of ½ second pulses, then continuous illumination when the brakes of the vehicle are applied for more than 5 seconds. The HEAD-ALERT is used to enhance motorcycle headlamp illumination during daylight hours by adding a rapid glimmering effect. The HEAD-ALERT 2 modulator enhances motorcycle headlamp illumination during daylight hours and disables at night by way of a photo-electric sensor.
Normally Closed, Delay-On-Break TDR (B, C, C10, DC10, G, SWDC, SWPDC, SWRDC Series)
Air Conditioning System
A normally closed delay-on-break TDR can be used to hold the blower motor in operation for a specified time after the cooling compressor has been turned off by the thermostat. This allows the residual cooling effect in the evaporator coil to be used to provide additional BTU’s of cooling after the compressor has stopped.
Gas Valve Control System
Any electrically operated natural or propane gas ignition system must be monitored to ensure that ignition has occurred and a flame is present. The normally closed relay can be used to interrupt power to the gas valve solenoid in the event of a malfunction of the system.
