    Default Calling all electricians..

    Hi all,
    Probably a long shot but I am always amazed by our knowledge base here. I need an electrician or at least a fresh pair of eyes. I have a project I am working on and I can not find a part I need. What I am looking for is 24 volt dc 24 hour timer.. IP 67 or 68 rated would be great but if not thats ok I can make a water proof box. The timer has to be 15 amp rated or greater.


    Ive looked at ebay and amazon and done searches,, theres some cheapo flimsy ones I have tried that are imported from china but these are really garbage and not what what I need. I also don't want one that 100's of dollars. It doesn't even need to be digital, can be mechanical.

    The idea is to have tank or possibly a pond down the road set up that runs off 24V solar panel and batteries. I have all the components I need but I just cant find a decent 24 volt timer to control the power cycle in the tank during 24 hour period. I want to be able to turn it all off for several hours a night by timer.

    I technically could use a 12v timer and system as I have the parts for that too but 24 v is better for this project.

    So I figured I would ask our residents electricians if they know of any economical 24 v dc timers (24 hours) I have seen some that were delay timers but thats not what I need.

    Thanks!

    Al,
    if that timer is close to what you want, You should look at ZORO.com
    It is a grainger subsidiary and uses the same part numbers and is way less expensive.

    If they won't sell to you let me know I can order thru my company and send to you.

    You are correct! Very frustrating when I worked there trying to convince customers to pay Grainger's high prices when Zorro IS Grainger, lol...
