24-hour digital timer controls two devices, and battery backup remembers settings in case of power failure. Controlled devices can be staggered up to 20 minutes apart to allow a single light or bank of lights to reach full intensity before the next is ignited.
This unit will also shut down lights if its 4-meter remote temperature probe senses that the user-determined threshold has been exceeded. To further protect expensive lighting systems, a user-adjustable "hot start" delay allows ballasts and expensive lamps to cool off for up to one hour if power is interrupted during a lighting cycle. Three-year warranty.
