WIRING CONNECTIONS
Screw clamp terminals for up to 2, 8 AWG wires per position. For supply
connections, use 8AWG or larger wires suitable for at least 105° C. Use copper
conductors only.
Lights
Power LED (Orange) – Light illuminates when power is applied to
the timer
Status LED (Green) – Light illuminates when power is applied to load.
INSTALLATION
CAUTION: Before wiring or service, power to this time switch and the
equipment it controls must be turned off. Turning off the timer switch only
will not prevent a shock hazard. Replace cover plate within housing before
supplying power to time switch. Installation should be performed by a
licensed electrician only. Before installing this product read all instructions
carefully. Remove protective cover panel within time switch housing by
removing screws located below timer face.
Dipswitch Configuration
WARNING: Failure to properly configure the dipswitch will result in
damage to the unit and void the warranty! Before installing and wiring the GE
Time Switch, proper configuration must be selected. This is accomplished as
follows:
120VAC
ON
OFF
208~240VAC
ON
OFF
277VAC (Default)
ON
OFF
ALL ON
1 & 4 OFF
2 & 3 ON
ALL OFF
NOTE: For outdoor locations, rain tight or wet location conduit hubs that
comply with requirements of UL 514B (standard for fittings for conduit and
outlet boxes) must be used.
1. To mount the box, remove the timer mechanism. Push the latch at the
top of the timer mechanism. The mechanism will release and pull out of
box.
2. Select knockouts to be used. Remove the inner 1/2” knockout by
inserting a screwdriver in the slot and carefully punch knockout loose.
Remove slug. If the 3/4” knockout is required, remove the outer ring
with pliers after removing the 1/2” knockout. Smooth edges with file if
necessary.
3. Place enclosure in desired mounting location and mark the three
mounting holes.
4. Drill holes for #8 screws using 1/8” drill bit, start screws in holes.
5. Place enclosure over screws and tighten screws.
6. Connect conduit hubs to conduit before connecting the hubs to the
enclosure. After inserting hubs into enclosure, carefully tighten hub lock
nut. Do not over-tighten.
7. Install in accordance with all applicable National and Local code
requirements. See Figure 1 and wiring diagrams.
8. To place the timer mechanism back in the metal box timer first hold top
of the timer mechanism. Slide the plastic case into the metal box latches
in the center of the metal box. Push the top of the timer mechanism until
the metal latch snaps into place.
GROUNDING: This enclosure has a grounding block on the bottom/
inside of the timer box. Screw in all ground wires to the ground block.
A pool application does not require bonding.
This enclosure does not provide grounding between conduits. When using
non-metallic conduit or cable, connect the ground wires of all cables together
with a wire nut. When metallic conduit is used, use grounding type bushings
and a jumper wire between each conduit.
