The CP Electronics 320A Remote Activated Timer, the MRT16-REM Time Delay Switch(energy saving)

The CP Electronics MRT16-REM device is a remote activated timer – a time delay switch. Just like the other CP Electronics Energy Saving devices like the ELT10 Automatic Operated Emergency Lighting Test Switch, the CP Electronics SPIR-F energy saving device, the CP Electronics RBT2(IHT16A), and the CP Electronics EllipseW push button time lag switch, the MRT16-REM is a remote activated timer. This multi range timer can be used for a number of applications including staircase lighting and pump overrun for central heating. The device has a blank face plate which is tamperproof. Its primary advantage is that it can be mounted remotely away from the load it is controlling.

  • The MRT16 series of time delay switches are designed to provide timed control of lighting, heating or ventilation loads.
  • Using push button, touch (light press required), pull cord or remote activation, the user can switch on a load for a preset time period and have the load turn off automatically after the time period has elapsed.
  • Multiple timing ranges come as standard to allow the time out period to be set accurately.
  • Time setting is achieved using switches and a thumbwheel at the rear of the unit.

Several modes of operation are selectable using switches:

  • On/off: triggering the timer will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will immediately turn off the load and stop the timing.
  • Resetting: triggering the timer will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will re-start the timing period from scratch. When using an external trigger In this mode, the timer will not start until the trigger is removed making it ideal for pump or fan overrun applications.
  • Non-resetting: triggering the time will turn on the load and start the timing. Triggering the timer again during timing will have no affect.
  • Optional neon indicators provide permanent illumination or illumination during the timing period.
