    How to add a time delay to a bathroom fan

    Hi I'm looking for some advice for adding a time delay on my parent's shower room fan. My parents had a section of their garage converted into a shower room with toilet. But the builders did something a bit odd. They fitted a pull cord light switch by the door and then a separate pull switch...

    Can anyone explain what a time delay RCD is needed for?

    I've scoured the internet for what these do and am coming up short on finding information. What are these for? (ie what specific problem are they trying to solve) and why do they need to be time delayed? Thanks in advance

    Can I use this Time Delay Switch on a panel heater?

    Just a quick one! I believe this time delay switch should work for my old panel heater (1.25kwh) because it handles loads up to 16A. Can anyone confirm this for me? I had someone tell me I needed a fused spur switch but others tell me I don't. FYI: the aim is to ensure the panel heater turns...

    Hello, I have a 12VDC battery bus where I charge with solar PV and a wind turbine. The system is controlled using a Siemens PLC.

    Could someone who uses this software tell me what the Rated Time Delay box is for when filling out the Main switch/ Switch-Fuse/ Circuit-breaker/ RCD section of an EIC? Is it for the recommend range in which a time delayed rcd should trip 130 - 500ms... or is it something else?

    100mA time delay rcd

    Hello guys, I'm after a bit of advice/opinion on this one. A customer has a plumis mist sprinkler system that needs power. I'm planning to stick in a separate unit, 100mA time delayed rcd as he wants the cables buried. If I just stick a mcb off of that would that be acceptable? It's not a TT...

    Why doesn't my multifunction tester have a time delay option?

    At least for the low ohms measurement range anyway. It'd be great to be able to quickly set a delay period between the pressing of the Test button then the actual performance of the test, for those awkward tests where you can't hold the probes in place and press the Test button at the same time...
