Question

How do I set up my MiniTimer?

Answer

MT13A SETUP

  • Connect the power supply to the Mini Timer and plug the power supply into any convenient AC outlet.

  • Set the MODE switch to “CLOCK SET.”
  • Press the top of the “TIME” rocker to advance to the correct time. A quick press on the rocker will advance the time by 1 minute. If you hold the rocker down the display will advance to the correct time faster. If you overshoot, you can use the bottom rocker to go back.
  • Adjust your Lamp or Appliance Modules to the same HouseCode as the MiniTimer. You may need a screwdriver to turn the dial.
  • Set the UnitCode on your Lamp or Appliance Module to any number between 1 and 8. The combination of your Unit and House code’s makes your module’s distinct address. This way your timer knows which modules to turn ON/OFF.
