The new TU-8A is an 8-channel Digital Timer device, designed to provide programmed weekly event switching of 8 independent relay outputs, controlling devices such as bell timing, class change signal generators, shift start/stop tone generators, etc.
The TU8A Digital Timer provides NO (Normal Open) or NC (Normal Closed) relay contacts to each of its 8 relay outputs and supports switching up to 64 events per day (32 On and 32 Off).
This compact, yet highly robust device is easy to programme and control and is ideal for education, industry and retail applications where the scheduled broadcast of tones, messages, alarms or recorded audio files/tracks is required on an ongoing, repetitious basis.
The TU-8A is ideal for use in conjunction with its partner product, the Clever Little Box LB-8A Digital Audio Storage and Replay Unit.
Further functions of this Digital Timer Unit include event manual override, DST (daylight saving time) compensation of spring / autumn time changes and clock tuning for maintaining accuracy of timer.
A clear blue LCD screen displays the Timer status as well as menu functions for programming and set-up. Push buttons control the user interface for programming and a row of 8 green LEDs provide a visual indication of when each relay is active. The relay outputs and power are connected via removable phoenix terminals which are housed under a removable security cover to prevent unauthorized access or tampering. Removable brackets allow the TU-8A Timer to be securely surface-mounted or installed within a PA rack.
