TLS1440 time lag switch


Postby AlwaysDave » Tue Jan 29, 2013 1:07 pm

Can anyone help me with wiring up this TLS1440 time lag switch (http://www.eterna-lighting.co.uk/docs/T ... manual.pdf). I'm wiring into a junction box (http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Images/Prod ... /BG604.JPG), but the switch only has live in and live out.

Simply Build It

The switch only has live in/live out, because it's a switch, that is all it requires to make/break a circuit.
Read these, take special care to look at points 4,5 and 6!
Installation:
1) Your new time lag switch can be installed as a direct replacement for a normal one way wall
switch.
2) The switch body will fit onto a standard wall box using the screws supplied.
3) Lever the mounting screws out from the rear of the case using a small screwdriver
4) Connect the switch to the live supply wire at the “LIVE IN” terminal.
5) Connect the live wire from your light fitting or other appliance to the “LIVE OUT” terminal.
6) Do not connect any neutral wires.
7) Do not connect any earth wires.
8) Do not connect any ring live wires.
9) Adjust the time delay control to minimum ( 12sec ) for testing.
10) Fit the switch to the wall box or pattress box and secure using the screws supplied.
11) Restore the power and test the switch.
12) If any adjustments to the time delay are required, switch of the electricity at the mains before
removing the switch to access the control.

Just to add, the light only stays on for about 4 minuets, enough time for me to get in the house.

External Lights

If you are installing an external light which is supplied from your electrical system and fixed to the exterior surface of your house then you should ensure that reasonable provisions are made to enable effective control and/or use of energy efficient lamps. Two options for achieving this are:

Installing a lamp with a capacity which does not exceed 150W per light fitting and the lighting automatically switches off both when there is enough daylight and also when it is not required at night
Ensuring that the lighting fittings you use have sockets that can only be used with lamps having an energy efficacy greater than 40 lumens per circuit-watt.
