Nigthscaping Analog or Digital Timers

Looking for a distributor that might still have either analog or digital timers in stock. I am in need of a replacement that would go into a Nightscaping H30-1000w Transformer with a photocell. My distributor in Iowa is out and wasn't sure where to find them now that Nightscaping is no long in business. Thanks for the help.

I had the same problem about 2 months ago. I got fed up and just replaced the transformer with a standard MDL type so I could just use a standard astro timer.

I've put regular Astro timers on Nightscaping transformers by just moving the switch to test mode and using an external timer.

Yeah, that would work to. I have never used the external type, always the internal ones.

Guys, this is an easy fix! You can use any timer you want inside a NS Powercenter. Digital, analog, astro... Any make or model will work. I use Aube Ti035 digital astro timers inside with great success. They are robust, relatively low cost, and effective. If you don't have a blank decora style modular bay mounting plate just put the timer inside a single gang device box inside the wiring bay.

The key is knowing which terminals to connect to inside the Powercenter. Just remember that #1 is Line, #2 is Load and #4 is neutral. Use blue crimp on terminals on the timer wires and connect to the power centre terminals. easy.
