Time switches for precise temperature control
October 2017, Temperature Measurement


Legrand’s new generation of programmable time switch technology encompasses AlphaRex and MicroRex time switches for precise temperature control in domestic, commercial and industrial environments.

Typical applications include water heaters, air conditioners, heating and ventilation systems and swimming pool heaters.

AlphaRex

AlphaRex programmable time switches have a user-friendly standardised text guided programming facility, with a high resolution digital display and backlight. There is a standard, single data key for all devices in this range to allow quick and easy transfer of programmes to other time switches and for creating backup copies.

These time switches are available with standard and multiple functions, with a daily or weekly programme facility and a clock working reserve of six years.

Programming with clock precision to the second is controlled directly on the time switch, or outside the distribution board using a PC and Legrand’s AlphaSoft programming software. Other features include an EEPROM memory which prevents settings being lost and the facility to programme the clock prior to dispatch. Once the unit has been programmed, the information will remain installed even if the switch is not connected to power. The battery can be removed without having to uninstall the time switch from the distribution board.

MicroRex

MicroRex time switches offer easy plug and play installation for daily and weekly programming. By simply setting the analog switching dial during start up, the time is automatically set using the fast-run mode. In the event of a power failure, the time is automatically reset.

MicroRex analog and digital modules are 24 hour and seven day time switches for DIN rail and wall mounting, with a 100 hour running reserve. These units have the capability for multiple programmes, which ensures optimum time setting flexibility. MicroRex time switches have an LED status indicator, precision clockwork of 0,2 s/day and are controlled by either a quartz or synchronous motor. For increased safety and user convenience, there is an automatic and manual and advance/over-ride facility.

An analog defrost switch is available for short periods of controlled defrosting. The timer can repeat one or two settable short programmes within 24 hours and the defrosting time is from one to 60 minutes per contact.

Other time switches in the Legrand range are designed for precise control in security installations as well as for use in industrial applications, including pump stations, filters and conveyors. Legrand time switches are also used for the lighting of commercial boards and signage, as well as for street lighting. Time switches in agricultural applications are used for irrigation and sprinkler systems and for cyclical programmes, like animal feed systems.
