Recycle timer puts solar power to work in remote locations

Recycle timer puts solar power to work in remote locations

An off-grid solar energy system with a reliable battery backup system can provide continual power in distant, impractical or unsafe areas. The right combination of technologies includes hardware, software, standard components, efficient modifications and site-specific, problem-solving engineering. Add a recycle timer, or repeat cycle timer, to control recurring functions at settable intervals.

Here’s a recycle timer for DIN rail installation with 2 input terminals, 3 output terminals, 4 rotary switch pots for coarse/fine setting of ON time and OFF time.

NATURAL GAS ODORANT INJECTION controlled by repeat cycle timer

Regulations require adding smelly stuff like methyl mercaptan for safety in drilling, processing and gas distribution. In odorant injection systems, solar-powered pumps controlled by repeat cycle or recycle timers deliver continuous dosing, to confirm presence of gas, or alert for leaks.

IRRIGATION SYSTEMS and NUTRIENT DISTRIBUTION controlled by repeat cycle timer

Recycle timers control open and close of solar-powered gates, as well as distribution cycles of fluid or pelletized additives. Applications include maintaining water levels, relocating resident fish populations, and adding foods or fertilizers.


REMOTE SECURITY and MONITORING controlled by repeat cycle timer

Solar-powered systems use a recycle timer for round-the-clock control of cameras, environmental monitors and other devices capturing images, site status and relevant data.
