Modern industrial applications involve complex machines, filled with innumerable highly synchronized moving parts. A slight error in the coordination of these processes could result in a serious loss for the manufacturer, either through damage to materials, machinery, or loss of time. Eagle Signal timers enable industrial applications to run smoothly by delivering accurate, reliable results every time, ensuring that there’s never a breakdown in machine operations.
A timer may have many functions and applications within manufacturing processes. Eagle Signal's electronic timer and electromechanical timer products are designed primarily to track or control time-based applications such as run-time and event processes. However, choosing the right kind of timer (electromechanical timer or electronic timer) depends on application specifics: Does the application only require monitoring, or does it require an output/control action as well?
Eagle-Signal timers come in two main varieties: electromechanical timer or electronic timer designs:
Electromechanical timer models are characterized by their ruggedness and simple efficiency. An electromechanical timer may take the form of an On Delay, off delay, interval timer or Repeat Cycle device. In addition, an electromechanical timer is characteristically long-lived. An electromechanical timer would not be ideal if space was a concern (due to their larger physical size) or where a non-fixed time range is required.
An electronic timer would be the timer of choice when fast, high precision accuracy and event feedback are required. In contrast to electromechanical timer models, an electronic timer is more compact and also more complex. If feedback/output control functions are required (in terms of an alarm or another pre-programmed event), an electronic timer is a better fit than an electromechanical timer. Each electronic timer offers digital programmability and a choice of LED or LCD display as well as multifunction and long time ranges. These programmable timer solutions are available in many forms to meet many different needs: • time indicators • reset timers • repeat cycle timers • Multi-function timers Electronic timer models are more complex yet relatively easy to maintain. Each programmable timer is rugged and requires minimal maintenance. Some units are sensitive to environmental forces such as physical shock.
