The automatic switching on and off household electrical supply is excellent. It allows you to solve many small and even large problems related to energy savings, as well as compliance with safety rules. But what to do if your equipment its reason or another not? Purchase outlet timer, which will be discussed further.

Purpose of the device under consideration can be described very briefly: Automation interrupt the electric current supply in accordance with predetermined time intervals. But this definition is not very clear why it is worth buying.

So I want to clarity, to disassemble a few specific cases, the effective operation of the socket-timers:

  • Control of the electric heater. Why such powerful equipment to work at a time when you are at work? Of course, you can turn it off each time before the departure of their hands, if not forget, of course.

    Fees - a thing troublesome. But there is one more thing: you can configure the switch heater, for example, half an hour before your arrival. And you will then enter into the already warm up the room;
Uncontrolled operation of the electric heater is very expensive

  • Street lighting or accent lighting in the aquarium. Both options involve the operation of lighting exclusively in the dark. Than follow the process in person, it is better to entrust this task to the socket-timer;

  • Simulation of life during your long absence from home. If you leave, say, a week-long trip, you can use one or more sockets, timers, you can configure the periodic inclusion of chandeliers, lamps or nightlights. This will cause potential thieves to think that the house is still not empty.

To simulate your stay home recommend using weekly e-sockets-timers, of which I shall tell more below in more detail. The fact that they can be set up much more flexible, and thus a realistic schedule on and off lighting.

  • Boiler. Standard situation: 8:00 Time plus two hours on the road. Why all this time to heat water in your home heating tank? Install it on the inclusion of an hour before your arrival and save this way on municipal monthly payments.

  • Often forget to turn off iron? Then connect it exclusively through the device in question, which set off just for the period of your ironing. On the one hand it is more expensive, on the other - ensures no occurrence of a fire;

  • Watering the garden. This is true please all gardeners. Exposed on each day to hours of work, and all of the vegetation can not be afraid. She will receive a portion of the fluid in time and in the right quantity without your participation.

Examples of the control and automation of household electrical appliances using sockets-timers can cause a lot more.

But from the above it can be concluded that their main responsibilities are as follows:

  1. Saving electrical energy used;
  2. Improved security;
  3. Reduction of labor costs on operation of electrical appliances.

According to the principle and operation of the device-timers sockets are divided into two broad groups:

mechanical

The operating principle of the socket with a timer is a mechanical type in the closing and opening of the conductors due to the continuous rotation of a special device. While older age more than thirty years, the role of such a device has played a mechanism consisting of a coil spring and gears, the same hour.

At the present day, it was replaced by slow-moving pulse motors, resulting in:

  • device operating sound became quieter;
  • There was dependent on the availability of power.

The diagram below, you can learn the basic elements of the device in question:

The undoubted advantage of this type of sockets-timers is their relatively low cost. Electronic models, which will be discussed a little lower, of course, are more expensive.

But also shortcomings, unfortunately, too short:

  1. Already mentioned by me dependence on electricity.

Then just "float" the two problems:

  • In the event of a breakdown in the power line, the device in question is simply will not work. While on the other hand, after the accident eliminated, it still fulfilled its purpose, it can be very time depending on the situation;
  • If the AC frequency used in the network deviates from fifty Hertz, then pulse motor starts or late or rush;
  1. A limited period of a given program, Which is due to features gear ratios. Thus, the programmed mechanical socket with timer can only for one day, it is not always convenient;
Setting run can only be for 24 hours

Setting run can only be for 24 hours

It is possible to extend the program by the complexity reducer gears by adding or increasing the cross-section of the executive of the disc. But both options lead to an increase in the size of the device itself, to the manufacturers refuse to go.

Also worth noting is that there are instances that are installed instead of the classic outlets, and instances, equipped with plugs that allow simply insert the device into any already established classic outlet.

How to set up such a device?

In this matter, by the way, the mechanics also gives electronics since here the desired time period is performed somewhat more complicated:

  1. Switch set to continuous operation;
  2. Rotating discs, fixing the right time;
  3. Press or squeeze on the perimeter of the disk buttonDenoting moments on and off the device;
  4. Insert the plug of the desired instrument cord in-seat power outlet timer;

  1. Translate into a manageable side button mode. Enabled device emits a low humming sound.

Here off and on relay sockets meet the scheme operated by the processor.

Such an arrangement increases the cost of the device, but also provides exciting opportunities:

  1. elementary intuitive instruction management. Suffice ponazhimat signed buttons to achieve the desired mode of the apparatus in question;

  1. Ability to set the program for the week, And in some models even for a month. That is, you can take into account weekends, when your daily routine is changed, or the exclusive non-recurring events, plan the work of electrical equipment at the time of your long-term departures, and more. In fact, you are one step closer to the fact that your house becomes a "smart";
  2. Lack of dependence on power supply. Built-in battery will provide an opportunity to continue to function even in times of emergency stop light;
  3. The execution of the hours. A trifle, but still useful.

In general, if you need the work of one or more electrical appliances to paint for a longer period than one day, then it should buy electronic outlet with a timer.
