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.
WARNING! READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS
Failure to follow all instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, fire, and/or serious injury.
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.
Warning: The warnings, cautions, and instructions discussed in this manual cannot cover all possible
conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood by the operator that common sense
and caution are factors which cannot be built into this product, but must be supplied by the operator.

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.

Standard and Military Time express minutes
and seconds in exactly the same way. When
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.
