SAFETY WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: When using product, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce
the risk of personal injury and damage to equipment. Read all instructions before using this
product!
1.
Keep the Digital Timer out of the reach of children.
2.
Avoid having the Digital Timer come into contact with water or other liquids.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
ELECTRICAL SAFETY
1.
Grounded products must be plugged into an outlet properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all codes and ordinances. Never remove the grounding prong or modify
the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter plugs. Check with a qualified electrician
if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. If a grounded product
should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry
electricity away from the user.
2.
WARNING! People with pacemakers should consult their physician(s) before using this
product. Operation of electrical equipment in close proximity to a heart pacemaker could
cause interference or failure of the pacemaker.
Note: Performance of this product (if powered by line voltage) may vary depending on variations in
local line voltage. Extension cord usage may also affect tool performance.
The Digital Lamp and Appliance Timer has a 3 Prong Plug
Grounding
The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet. If the Digital Timer should electrically
malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away from the
user, reducing the risk of electric shock. Warning: Do not exceed the maximum Amperage of 15. Exceeding the maximum amperage of 15
Amps may result in excessive heat and fire of the Digital Timer.

1.
The main difference between regular and military time is how hours are expressed. Standard
Time uses numbers 1 to 12 to identify each of the 24 hours in a day. In Military Time, the hours
are numbered from 00 to 23. Under this system, midnight is 00, 1 a.m. is 01, 1 p.m. is 13, and so
on.
2.
Standard and Military Time express minutes and seconds in exactly the same way. When
converting from regular to military time and vice-versa, the minutes and seconds do not change.
3.
Regular time requires the use of a.m. and p.m. to clearly identify the time of day. Since military
time uses a unique two-digit number to identify each of the 24 hours in a day, a.m. and p.m. are
unnecessary.
4.
The chart below summarizes the relationship between Standard Time and Military Time.

The LCD readout will indicate if you are in the On, Auto, or Off stage of the program.
2.
