LCR offers two control boards for timer applications. The EC113 and EC114 are inexpensive and easy to install and are ideal for use in ovens, fryers, holding cabinets and cook and hold ovens found in the food service industry.
Utilizing an on-board potentiometer to replicate electromechanical timers, the compact, customizable EC113 can be easily placed anywhere on or in an appliance. This one-size-fits-all digital electronic timer looks and works like a classic electro-mechanical timer when accompanied with a large knob-pointer, yet it provides the reliability of a solid state digital device. 1, 2, 3 and 5 hour selectable time ranges are standard with custom ranges available. The on-board buzzer sounds when the set time has expired.
As an added safety feature, if power is restored after an interruption while the timer is counting, the timer will automatically advance to zero and sound the buzzer. The EC113 can accept 120, 208 or 240 VAC power at 50 or 60 Hz, so you won’t have to stock an electro-mechanical timer for every combination of elapsed time, voltage and frequency.
If you prefer a modern digital look, LCR also offers the EC114 featuring a three digit, seven segment LED readout in any commonly available color including red, orange, yellow, green or blue. Two tactile user input types are also available – three soft keys or a small knob and a single soft key. Like the EC113, when the timer reaches zero a piezo-buzzer sounds. An off-board device like a solenoid clacker can also be used. Power input is 120, 208 or 240 VAC at 50 or 60 Hz.
