Bulletin KA Adjustable Time Delay Series Specification

Adjustable Miniature Time Delay

The ICS KA Series Adjustable Microtimer provides time delay actions that include but are not limited to on delay, off delay, interval delay and recycle timer. Standard and custom time ranges and voltage options are offered. With output current capability up to 500mA at 12VDC, it is suitable for controlling many available relays, solenoids and other load types. The miniature size can be beneficial where space is limited.
