USING THE TIMETECH TIMER TTS-4/TTS-8
(MFG. # 9900624, 625, 628, 629, 630, 632, 643, 644, 645 & 656)
If you experience any problems with these instructions,
contact the factory Technical Service Department at 630784-1000 or toll free in the U.S. at 877-392-7854.
The TimeTech Timer uses four or eight timing channels to
track four or eight different events simultaneously with up
to 2 timing stages for each channel.
•
TTS-4 (4 Channel Timer, Mfg. #9900624 & 9900630)
•
TTS-8 (8 Channel Timer, Mfg. #9900628, 9900629,
9900632, 9900643, 9900644 9900656, & 9900645)
1. If you are attaching the Timer to a device powered
by electricity, turn the device off, unplug the power
cord, and allow it to cool down before proceeding.
NOTE: Clean the surface where the Timer is to be
mounted thoroughly before proceeding. Observe the
proper cleaning procedures as required.
2. When mounting to a non-magnetic surface, use
the Universal Mounting Bracket. Carefully peel the
backing from the Bracket and secure the Bracket to
the chosen mounting surface.
NOTE: While the timer can track 4–8 different timing
events at a time, as a default, it will display the timing
session that will finish first. Other active channels
can be viewed by pressing its corresponding button.
NOTE: The adhesive is strong. Make certain to center
it properly before attaching it to the mounting surface.
Take the Timer out of the box and allow it to charge
under a light source for 15 minutes. Do NOT obstruct
the solar cells at the front and top of the Timer or it may
not function properly.
5. If the Timer is mounted to a device, place the
device back into service.
NOTE: Do NOT obstruct the Solar Cells at the front
and top of the Timer or the Timer may not function
properly.
Mounting the Timer
The TimeTech Timer mounts directly to any flat magnetic
surface with the magnetic backing. If the surface is not
magnetic, use the provided Universal Mounting Bracket.
CAUTION
Do NOT mount the timer in extremely hot (104ºF)
or wet areas. Do NOT mount the timer where it will
cause the operator to reach over hot or dangerous
equipment.

Idle Mode
When the Timer is not timing, the Time Display window
reads “ --:--:--.”
After 5 minutes of idle time, the Timer enters a “sleep
mode” causing the display to go blank. Press any key to
“wake up” the Timer. This will occur even if a channel is
done timing and not cleared.

Programming the Timer
4.SET THE TIME FOR THE SECOND STAGE:
NOTE: The Timer will exit programming mode in ten
(10) seconds if a button is not pressed. If you wish
to abort programming, simply wait 10 seconds for the
Timer to exit Programming Mode.
Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the second stage, if necessary. If a second stage is not desired, set the
time to all zeros.
1.SELECT TIME CHANNEL:
Press and hold the desired Channel Selection button (Figure 1) for 3 (three) seconds. The letters
PGM appear above channel number in the Channel
Display area to indicate that the Timer is in Program
Mode. NOTE: This channel must be inactive, or not in an
active timing mode.
2.SELECT TIME STAGE:
A Time Stage name will flash in the Time Stage
Area. Use the Up and Down arrow buttons to select
the desired Time Stage and press the Enter button.
Options are:
•
•
•
•
•
Cook
Hold (Counts UP from 00:00 to the program time)
Stage 1
Stage 2
blank (Cooking Stage Area will be blank)
NOTE: You cannot use the same Time Stage twice in
a program. For example, if you chose “Cook” for the
first stage, “Cook” will not appear as a choice when
selecting a name for the second stage.
NOTE: Selecting “blank” will prevent the selection of
a second timing stage.
NOTE: While the timer may be programmed as another channel is actively timing, it is recommended that
all programming be performed while the timer is not
actively timing on any channel.
3.SET THE TIME FOR THE FIRST STAGE
The Time Display shows the selected Time Stage
name. Use the Up and Down buttons to set the
desired time in hours and press the Enter button.
Next, set the desired time in minutes and then in
seconds, pressing Enter after each entry.
Using the Timer (Typical Application)
NOTE: If you wish to stop a channel as it is timing,
press and hold its Channel Selection button for two
seconds. The Timer will move to the next active
channel or go into Idle Mode.
1. To start a time cycle, press and release the desired
Channel Selection button. The Timer will begin to
countdown.
2. If multiple timed cycles are desired, simply press the
desired Channel Selection buttons. The Timer will
display the time for the last selected channel.
NOTE: Check the Channel Display to note which timing channel is counting down in the Time Display
window.
3. The Timer sounds 2 beeps per second for 2 minutes
or until the Channel Selector button is pressed.
4. At the end of a timing cycle, the unit sounds three
beeps five times and then beeps two times every
one second. Also, the channel number flashes in the
Active Channels area (Figure1) until the Channel
Selection button for that channel is pressed. Then,
the display will move to the next channel to finish.
Example
In the example illustration below, channels 5 and 7 are
timing. Channel 7 is timing in the Hold stage and is
shown in the Channel Display and Time Display because
it will finish timing first.
Also, Both Channels 5 and 7 are lit in the Active Channels
area. Note that Channel 2 is flashing. This means that it
has finished timing. Press its Channel Selection button to
acknowledge that it has finished timing.
NOTE: Hours and minutes can be programmed in
increments of one for all units. For Mfg. No. 9900624,
9900628, 9900643, 9900644 & 9900645, seconds
are programmed in increments of five. For Mfg. No.
9900630 & 9900632, seconds are programmed in
increments of one.
NOTE: To clear the time to 00:00:00, press and
release the Up and Down arrow buttons together.

Display Description
This section describes the Timer display and the various
functions available on the Timer. Refer to Figure 1 to
identify the different locations of these features.
NOTE: The timer contains three AA Alkaline batteries
to boost beeper volume. The batteries should last
approximately one year. If the beeper volume begins
to get too low, replace the batteries. The timer WILL
operate normally without the batteries.
If the batteries run low on power, the timer will display a “Lo BaT” alert only when the timer is idle.
This message will appear for 3 seconds and reappear
every 30 seconds.
