:> I've never seen anything quite like it here. Looks like a piece of :> industrial control gear, not like what you'd find in a residence. :It's a generic timer, you can use it for whatever you like. For the :automatic watering system I had to improvise, because the summers are very :hot here, and the lawn needs watering twice a day, and we don't go there for :months, and I can't ask the neighbour to do the watering. The solenoid :valves come up to 2 1/2" IIRC and they're italian.
Such DIN rail mount timer/controllers are fairly common. Here's a data sheet for an Australian made unit
for operation from 12V - 48V dc and a range of common ac voltages from 24V - 240V.
For a dedicated application such as an irrigation controller I think it would be far cheaper and more practical to use something like one of the range of Irritrol units
