PFCC-1 Capacitor

The PFCC-1 Capacitor is designed to assist in switching low wattage and low voltage loads.

Typical applications

 The Capacitor should be used only with our two wire product and with the following types of load:

  • Low voltage
  • Low wattage
  • LED loads
  • Contactors*

Only 3 wire timers with a neutral and 400NE can work with contactors and the capacitor must be fitted across the A1 and A2 (switch live and neutral) points of the contactor

  • 370B-1 Standard PIR Timer – 3 Wire

    The PIR Timer is a fully automatic device which controls various power loads through the detection of body heat. Activated by the detection of moving body heat, the lighting or power load will then stay on for a preset period of time.

    If body heat is no longer detected, the time period will elapse and the load will be switched off. An internal light sensor will keep the lighting switched off when sufficient ambient light is available, further increasing the energy saving potential of the PIR Timer.
