Finder multi-function and multi-voltage modular timers

Discover the complete range, with over 50 versions to satisfy every timing need.

PRODUCTS FOCUS

Creating automation according to a prescribed sequence of timed events is, in nearly every manufacturing process, at the heart of efficiency, quality and speed. This applies equally well to the manufacture of a product, the supply of a utility, and to any support system or process. For all these needs Finder offers a wide range of timers suitable for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

The Finder timer range is “Made in Italy “and includes multi-function and multi-voltage devices boasting over 40 different timing functions (depending on the type), such as On-delay, Off-delay, Pulse and Interval timing.

THE ADVANTAGES OF USING TIMERS

Timers are ideal for the simple, quick “first stage” realization of an automation system or process. Their distinguishing features are:

  • Small size
  • Easy programming, now also via smartphone for the Type 84.02
  • Simple management and maintenance of the device
  • Optimization of productivity

FEATURES OF THE FINDER TIMER RANGE

Finder has been active in the design and production of precision electromechanical and electronic components for over 65 years and today boasts a wide range of timers, comprising seven different Series.

 

  • 80 Series: multi-function and single-function modular timers with “PWM clever” technology for the automatic recognition of the input voltage. This Series features a wide supply range from 12 to 240 V AC or non-polarized DC, timings up to 24 h, a wide variety of functions and contacts rated up to 16 A. They are suitable for 35 mm rail mounting (EN 60715) and feature screw terminals that can be tightened using both flat blade and cross head screwdrivers.
  • 81 Series: modular timers with start and reset signal inputs. Among the features of this product is the wide supply range (from 12 to 230 V AC or non-polarized DC), a DIP switch to set the regulating time range and the required function, an output contact rated at 16 A, and six selectable time ranges, from 0.1 s to 10 h.
  • 83 Series: 22.5 mm modular timers, both multi-function and single-function, with “PWM clever” technology for automatic recognition of the supply voltage. In addition to the wide supply range (from 24 to 240 V AC or non-polarized DC), the series boasts eight time ranges from 0.05 s to 10 days and high input-output isolation.
  • 84 Series SMARTimer is the latest addition to the Finder timer range. A multi-function digital timer programmable with Android and iOS smartphones via the Finder Toolbox App.

The 84 Series timer boasts a backlit LCD display, high digital precision and great flexibility thanks to twin independent timer channels each featuring 16 A output contacts. Plus, you have the ability to create even more specialized custom functions by combining both channels – selecting from the inputs and from the 30 timer functions available for each channel.

THE PRINCIPAL APPLICATIONS OF FINDER TIMERS

Finder timers can be used in multiple applications across the residential, commercial and industrial sectors.

In the residential and commercial sectors for example, the Types 80.01 and 80.11 timers are commonly used for lighting control and for the timing associated with opening and closing of doors and gates.

When used in industrial applications you can easily generate a timed sequence of events that commonly may define a simple manufacturing process, or any other system based on the execution of a sequence of operations.

This functionality means they are frequently used in systems such as:

 

  •  HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR CONDITIONING. For climate control in large buildings such as shopping centres, hospitals and industries.
  • INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION. From packaging to the control of machine tools; from the automotive sector to the food sector.
  • REFRIGERATION. For the command and control of compressor motors in the refrigerant circuit. For supplementary input and output interfacing with programmable controllers and electronic control boards.
  • LIFTING AND ASCENT APPLICATIONS such as cranes and lifts.
  • AUTOMATIC DISPENSERS and applications associated with push-button panels and coin-operated mechanisms.

Finder timers are also used in:

  • The construction of electronic control boards for automated washing systems, ovens, kitchens and small devices, both in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  • The construction of energy systems for EV CHARGING and the PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION ASSOCIATED WITH PHOTOVOLTAIC AND WIND-POWER SYSTEMS.

To summarize, Finder’s timer products offer ideal solutions whenever there is a need to operate in a cyclical and precise manner. For these types of application the most suitable products are often multi-function timers, able to regulate the activity time in a repetitive and precise way. All Finder timers allow you the versatility to choose from numerous available functions and delay times according to your needs.
