Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good timer switch Use this switch as timer for shower extractor fan. Plenty of timer settings. You will need a deep back box as switch is deep ( think you can get a spacer) tho it is easy to wire and set up. It does give off a bright blue light when in stand bye but is useful at night in en suite as i don't have to turn light on . Can override timer timer to turn off. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We use this product in manufacturing a timed heated ganrty and it meets all our requirements. looks great, has adjustable times to suit use and easy to wire up. The neon looks good and is useful for locating the featherlight touch button. A great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Have these for bedside lighting. As other reviews there is a bright blue LED illuminated ring when lights off but if you take it apart you can dab a blob of paint on the circuit mounted LEDs, tape didn't work. Also you can end the timer operation by pressing the button for about 4 seconds not the 1 minute mentioned in another review but there's a 1 minute delay before the timer ends. Not perfect for what I wanted but after a long search this is the best I found.

Would this work as a sunbed timer

We need to wire a switch to turn on and off a sunbed, we dont really want an awful token box as this is at home. Essentially we have 3 wires, live neutral and control cable
Asked by: Robertd12
Hi Robertd12, Thank you for your enquiry. We have a timer switch available at Screwfix called the Elkay 3-Wire Touch-Activated Timer Switch Master 3 wire (5796G). This has a live, switch live and neutral so should be ideal for your sunbed. I am assuming that the control cable you mention is the switched live or live out. The timer switch will give you from 2 minutes to 2 hours. It has 16 time settings. Two hours should be more than sufficient for a sunbed however if 2 hours is not enough and longer is required we have alternative timer switches and you can contact Elkay technical on 07527 404110 for more details. Kind regards Paul

Does the Red LED stay lit whilst unit is operating ?

The manual suggests that it does. Mine does not. Is this a malfunction ?
Asked by: Podro
The Manual talks about the Red starting to flash continuously in last minute of timing - so presumably it should be flashing or doing something at other times during operation. A blank / unlit state during operation is bad design from a safety point of view. Also, in my installation, I can neither see nor hear the operation of the unit being controlled without going into another room, which is why I need a remote indication of operation. It would have been so easy to keep the Red LED lit continuously during operation, with it flashing during the last minute, which was how I read the manual wording !

earth cable ?

I'm looking to fit the switch and I currently have an earth, live and neutral. I see that L in, L out and N neutral. Where can I fit the earth cable, is it not needed and what is the T slot for on the unit ? Thanks.
Asked by: mikeyt
Hi Mikey T, Thank you for your question, Live In is the live feed in and the Live Out is the Switch Live. The Neutral is marked with an N on the terminal. You do not earth this product as it is double insulated Class II switch and he earth should be terminated in the back box. The T terminal is the TRIGGER terminal and is only used in conjunction with Elkay Slaves. regards

Covering Blue LED

I would like to cover an LED inside the unit to stop the permanent bright blue light. Can I ask which of LEDs needs to be covered as there seem to be 3 of them. LED 1 bottom left of the unit LED 2 above on the left and LED 3 top on the right.
Asked by: mikeyt
It's LED1 and LED2 which produces the blue light, LED 3 produces the red one. I've covered 1 and 2 with insulating tape and that seems to work very well.

Does this need a neutral?

Asked by: trigzy
Hi Trigzy, Happy New Year! Yes this product does need a neutral. If you are doing a first fix always run a neutral to the switch position as it gives you more flexibility. if this is a retrofit and you only have two wires call Elkay Technical 01675 468200 and ask for Steve Anderson who can advise on the 2 wire choices available to you for retrofits. regards
