120 Volt Timers for Sale
By using a timer system, you can make sure that your hydroponic system receives the same amount of water and lighting on a day-to-day basis. This consistency helps plants grow larger and more quickly, as agricultural yield thrives on routine. Your plants will grow larger and you won’t have to spend all day in your grow room.
What Are Timers Used For?
Hydroponic systems can be run at maximum efficiency through the use of timers. There are digital and mechanical timers that can control the water flow or your ebb and flow systems, your lighting, fans, air conditioning and heating. By automating these processes, you can increase your crop yield and spend less time micromanaging.
Ebb and flow systems use pump timers to keep plants watered at precise times. Without frequent flooding and draining, the plants of your ebb and flow system will wilt and die. It is essential that your timer system floods your plants frequently enough to nourish the roots, but never long enough that the plant begins to suffocate. Without a timer, ebb and flow systems are difficult — if not impossible — to maintain.
Timers are most frequently used for lighting systems. By attaching a timer to your lighting system, you won’t have to worry about controlling the day/night cycle of your plants manually. Mechanical light timers are often preferable for their reliability and ability to continue working even after a power outage. Comparatively, digital timers can offer more precise clocks and can be programmed for more timing settings.
Finding the Right Timer for Your System
No matter your needs, HTG Supply carries 120v timers for sale that are ideal for any hydroponic operation.
Pump and Light Timers
These versatile timers can be used for almost anything. Whether controlling a hydroponic pump, a day/night cycle, or a heating and cooling system, these timers are designed for reliability and consistency. The Sentinel MDT-1 Digital Timer can coordinate two timing functions and is programmable down to the second. In addition to its lighting functions, the Sentinel Digital Timer comes with a built-in thermometer and is capable of shutting down the lights if the room begins to overheat.
For those who want to control their water pumps and light timers on the same system, the High Yield 2 Outlet Digital Timer W/ Battery runs up to eight different timers and can even be programmed to follow a weekly schedule. The High Yield 2 is programmable down to the minute and has an internal battery in case of a power outage.
The AgroMax Digital Cycle Timer is another all-around timer with a rechargeable backup battery. With this system, you can schedule cycles for up to 99 hours. For those who don’t need as long of a cycle, the Blueprint 120 Volt Cycle Timer operates on five-hour cycles.
In hydroponic systems, CO2 can be used to increase the acidity of the water, but as CO2 escapes from the water, the acidity may fall again. With a CAP 4 Timer Temp/Humidity/CO2 Controller, you can automatically dispense CO2 into your water to better control your pH level.
