TORK® EW120B Basic Programming


The Tork EW120B is a 7 Day single pole double
throw Time Switch that can be used for applications that need general lighting control from a
latching contactor with self-clearing coils. It features a power failure backup that doesn’t
require batteries and is an economical upgrade from traditional electro-mechanical dial timers. This video will cover basic programming; including
steps to set the time and date, the daylight savings feature, how to set the timer for
basic programming. Icons in the lower screen will help you navigate. Before starting, you will want to write down
the schedule you want the timer to operate on. This will be a helpful reference when
programming the timer. First, list each ON and OFF event.
Examples might be: Turn ON at 6am and OFF at 7pm seven days a
week. Note that each ON and OFF will be a separate
event when programming. When power is connected to the timer, the
LCD screen should be flashing the message “12 o’clock”. This timer only has 12 hour
time format, so you will need to pay attention to AM and PM settings when programming. If the screen is blank, press the reset button. Press MODE to begin. We are now going to set the current time. To set the current time, press the hour and
minute button. We will set the current time to 8:15AM. Watch for the change from AM to
PM. Press ENTER to save. Next let’s set the current date. You should
see a date to prompt entry on this screen. Press the buttons marked MONTH, DATE, and
YEAR to show today’s date. We will set the date to March 5th 2014. Press ENTER to save. The Tork EW120B is preset for daylight savings
dates. This is indicated by “DST ON” on the LCD screen. If you live in an area that follows
daylight savings time then nothing more needs to be done. Simply press MODE to continue. If you live in an area that does not follow
daylight savings time, press DEL button to change screen to “DST OFF” then press ENTER. We will leave Daylight Savings time ON for
this example. Press MODE to continue. Before we begin scheduling, there are some
things to keep in mind: You will need to enter a separate event for
each ON and OFF. Each EVENT can be an ON or OFF type. You will
get to choose. For custom time only events, a handy tip is
to program all the ON events first and OFF events second. We will now set the timer for a basic schedule.
For this example, we will set this timer to turn ON at 6 AM and OFF at 7PM daily. Be sure
the LCD says SCH. Now let’s begin. We are first going to set the ON event. For
this example, we will be setting the timer to turn ON at 6AM daily. Press the HOUR button and 12 AM is showing
on the screen. Press the EVENT button to change this event
from OFF to ON. Now use the buttons marked HOUR and MIN to
set the first ON time. We will set ours to 6AM. Be sure to note AM/PM setting. We now want to set the days the timer will
turn ON at 6am. The timer will default to Monday through Sunday. You can press DAY to
change the days ON. We will leave it for this example. The first event is complete. Press ENTER to
save. We are now going to set our second event.
In this case, we will set the timer to turn OFF at 7PM daily. You should see “Zero-two”
will show above SCH. This is the second event. Press the HOUR button and 12:00am is showing
on the screen. The screen already shows event as OFF, so
we will leave this alone. Now use the buttons marked HOUR and MIN to
change the screen to show 7PM. Be sure to note AM/PM. We now want to set the days the timer will
turn OFF at 7pm. The timer will default to Monday through Sunday. You can press DAY to
change the days OFF. We will leave it for this example. Press ENTER to save event. From here you can
either enter a third event. If you do not need to enter any more events. Now press MODE once to go to AUTO screen.
