Installation

  • Ensure the mains supply is switched off and the circuit supply fuses are removed or the circuit breaker turned off.
  • Remove the two bezel fixing screws, and remove bezel from timer module and wall plate.
  • Ease the module forward without disconnecting, so you have access to the wall plate and loosen the screws on the terminal block for both supply and load cables.
  • Ensuring that the free terminals on the wall plate are at the top, terminate the 230V 50Hz supply and load cables to the terminal block ensuring correct polarity is observed and that all bare conductors are sleeved. Please note the connections are marked on the rear side of the wall plate (see section 5. Connection Diagram).
  • Fit the wall mounting screws through the wall plate and into the wall box threaded holes, and tighten until the wall plate is firmly fastened.
  • Re-position the module back into place ensuring the time indicator is on the bottom right hand side, and the locating holes on the timer are set correctly on the pegs on the back plate.
  • Re-fit the bezel over the timer module, and secure to the wall plate with the two fixing screws previously removed.
