Titan Controls Apollo 8: Two Outlet 24 Hour Timer Questions & Answers
Is this meant for use with digital or electronic ballasts?
This timer is not for use with digital or electronic ballasts due to the high in-rush current of the ballast. The in-rush current can be from 10 to 40 times the rated amperage for the product and this burns the contacts inside of the timer making it inoperable. Titan Controls recommends the use of the Apollo 4: 120 Volt ballast timer to operate digital and electronic ballasts.
Does my Titan Controller need to be calibrated?
No, your controller has been factory calibrated and is ready for service when you take it out of the box. Each unit will provide years of use and will maintain its settings without any further changes required.
There is a black dot on the bottom right hand side of the display. What does it do?
It has no purpose regarding the functionality of the device. It is intended for use at the factory to identify the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) being used in the product.
What is the blinking circle on the front of the display for?
It doesn't provide any useful purpose to the timer. This circle is only to test the functionality of the display after manufacturing to determine if the timer is working correctly.
Are Titan Controls digital or analog controllers?
Both! Titan uses digital control boards on most of the controllers, but simplifies the use of them by having analog (manual knobs & switches) controls to operate the devices. This eliminates the need to scroll through complicated electronic menus.
Are the Titan Controllers compatible with each other?
Yes. They are designed to work together so you may expand your system as needed.
What happens to the 'preferred settings' on my Titan Controller if I lose power?
Titan Controls digitally based equipment has 'non-volatile' memory storage that allows the unit to retain settings due to a loss of power. The analog product line settings are not affected by a loss of power and will maintain dial settings.
