The turn-off delay circuits 47 a and 47 b function as both a smoothing network for the DC signal passed through Triac Q 1 and also a snubber network that clamps and dissipates the energy that is held in the coils L 3 and L 1 of the solenoid valves 17 a or 17 b when the power is removed. The turn off delay circuit may advantageously be an inductive turn-off delay circuit, and in a more preferred embodiment the turn-off delay circuit comprises from the output to common, an LC snubber circuit. Plan term and coverage begins at the end of the manufacturer’s labor warranty. All references to current flow in the following description are references to flow of conventional current. Covers mechanical and electrical breakdowns. I wouldn’t mind seeing a photo of a dead doubler cut open. Customers also shopped for.

A control circuit as claimed in claim 13 wherein the turn on delay timer provides a turn on delay of at least 0.
Apparatus as claimed in claim 1 wherein the first turn on delay sopenoid to time out a predetermined period before operating said first switching circuit and the second turn on delay timer to time out a predetermined period before operating said second switching circuit are each a transistor based RC timer circuit.
This is a useful property, allowing the decoder circuit formed by both triacs and associated parts to use all four quadrants to switch.
Typically, one of the solenoid valves, e. Plan term and coverage begins at the end of the manufacturer’s labor warranty. This timer circuit 45 a or 45 b with the components illustrated and in particular with the capacitor values shown, results in a turn-on delay of about half a second from when power is supplied to input 27 to the time that the relevant triac switching circuit 43 a or doubleg b turns on.
Independent control of two solenoid operated valves over two wires in an irrigation system. When power is switched by the triac Q 1the triac passes half wave DC through L 2 and charges up C 4in addition to actuating coil L 1 of the solenoid valve 17 b.

I know I should check from the clock, but it’s way back there. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. The turn on delay timer to time out a predetermined period before operating said switching circuit may be a transistor based RC timer roubler. See and discover other items: While the turn off delay could be longer, this would increase the probability of two outputs being operational at the same soenoid, which could interfere with operation of a reticulation system, especially where there is low pressure monitoring and trip out.
The first decoder output soelnoid the second decoder output each include associated therewith a turn-off delay circuit. Similarly, the decoder circuit xoubler comprises two half wave rectifiers 34 each in the form of a diode 35 a and 35 b connected in a similar fashion to the diodes 33 a and 33 b.
Customer service is excellent and will get back to you promptly to help correct error if you need them. I get an open line on the ohms reading at the clock when the doubler is connnected both stations. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty.
The decoder portion 13 incorporates switching circuits 43 a 43 binterfaced with turn on delay timers 45 a 45 b respectively, to delay operating the loads at switch on, and turn-off delay timers 47 a 47 b to hold the loads on after switch off. For a solenoid operated soleenoid which is intended to operate on 24 volts AC, the value of the capacitor can range from 4.

Doide D 6 which is in parallel with capacitor C 4 acts as a free wheeling diode. Turn on 1-Click ordering for this browser. When it is desired to add an additional solenoid operated valve, usually there will not be sufficient cabling as the system will have been originally installed with only the required cabling, and without any capacity for expansion.
Most solenoids used in this application are actuated and held by a 24 volt AC current supplied by the irrigation controller. Thus, in most modern irrigation controllers, the apparatus described in U.
The decoder 13 comprises two mirror circuits being a positive half decoder circuit 13 b and a negative half decoder circuit 13 a.

These items are shipped from and sold by different sellers. The dlubler turn on delay timer to time out a predetermined period before operating said first switching circuit and the second turn on delay timer to time out a predetermined period before operating said second switching circuit may each be a transistor based RC timer circuit.
PurpHazeNov 4, Also great customer service too. Loading recommendations for this item When this apparatus is used it increases the electrical load on the circuit over and above that formerly presented by the solenoid or solenoids connected in parallel to the irrigation controller. Add a zone without new wire 1.
Easy to install, had it working in less then an hour.
