Relay Control

Note: The configuration and operation of the RLY-3CH-PS2 and RLY-3CH-USB are identical and are both referred to as a TimeIPS Relay Control System.

The TimeIPS Relay Control System is intended for the following applications:

  • Signalling the beginning and/or the end of a shift.
  • Providing a warning prior to the beginning of a work period.
  • Indicating the beginning and/or end of a break.
  • Providing access control between work and non-work areas, such as a break room door.
  • Signalling an employee's arrival/departure.

The TimeIPS Relay Control system can also activate/deactivate other electronic devices that should be synchronized with a shift/break or employee arrival/departure. For example, TimeIPS Relay Control can be used to activate a security camera, light, fan, radio, etc.


Note: If you have a device that requires more that 5 amps you can use the TimeIPS relay controller to trigger a second relay that is properly rated for your implementation. For an example schematic for wiring something like this click here.
