: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 http://www.aicpl.com.au/brochures/rm4tmr.pdf 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 http://www.toro.com.au/irrigation/irritrol_category.cfm?cat=8
