I'm a bit annoyed right now. A few days a go I called Intermatic and told the tech what I wanted to do:
Me: "Hi... I'd like to know if you have a timer that can control two 240v devices independently. Could you please help me with that?"
Intermatic: "Yes sir... you're going to want a Intermatic ET1115C..."
Me: "Ok! So to confirm. I'm looking at it here and I see it has a total of 6 lugs... can you walk me through what I want I'm doing?
Intermatic: "Certainly... the two on the far left will be your two hots, the next two will be you 1st Channel two hots and the last two will be your 2nd Channel two hots. You'll want to make sure and set the switch to 240v and the jumper should already be on IND which stands for "Independent"."
Me: "Great! Thanks!! "
I then post up here on TFP and I'm told that is not the right information and that the timer won't do what I want... then I found this thread: Getting Prepared to Install a Stenner and it appeared that I could and there were some other threads that said I could although it would only kill one leg...
So... what do I do???
I call Intermatic again... and they tell me the exact same thing, yes -- it DEFINITELY can do what I want.
Well... if I had just studied the dang schematic that I even posted here I would have known that... no it couldn't!
The best I can do with this timer is set it to SIM and use it as a single timer... which totally defeats what I wanted to do.
Should have just listened to the fine folks on TFP... but I believed the people who actually MAKE the thing. Doh!
I do have a question:
With the two far left lugs each with a hot pole... should *any* of the other 4 lugs be hot when the timer is set to "on" (either in IND or SIM)???
