The Touch Button Timer delay switch is designed to provide timed control of ventilation loads. Using push button, touch (light press required), the user can switch on a load for a preset time period and have the load turn off automatically after the time period has elapsed.
Multiple timing ranges come as standard to allow the time out period to be set accurately. Time setting is achieved using switches and a thumbwheel at the rear of the unit.
Features & Benefits
- Pushing the button activates the circuit and starts the timing period (this is easily adjustable and is set at installation to any time between 1 second and 2 hours). Complete with voltage free contact.
- Adjustable timer
- Switches any type of load

Drawing and Dimensions
Dimensions in mm.
Wire TP581 as in the diagram below. Connection to the TRIG terminal is optional.
Applying a live to the trigger terminal will start the timer running. A momentary switch can be used, for example, in corridor lighting applications. A permanent input can be used, for example, in pump overrun applications.
To switch from more than one position simply wire two or more units in parallel to achieve two way and intermediate switching, or use the trigger terminal with a slave switch.
TP581 comes with a voltage free output contact with the following connections: common (COM); normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC).
When installing touch switches do not fix to a vibrating or uneven surface.
