Product description

The PCZ-528.3 control timer is a universal programmable timer that combines the features of an astronomical, weekly and annual timer.

The PCZ-528.3 clock controller can operate in one of the three modes of operation:
» Automatic mode
Operation in automatic mode involves the automatic processing of all programs stored in the memory of the controller.
» Semi-automatic mode
Semi-automatic mode means a temporary interruption of operation in automatic mode and the possibility of manually switching the relay contact to the opposite position. The timer operation in semi-automatic mode is indicated by blinking of the timer dial on the controller display. Operation in semi-automatic mode is stopped when the next operating program
is activated, after which the controller returns to automatic mode.
» Manual mode
In manual mode, the list of programs stored in the memory of the controller is ignored and switching on/off is performed manually by the user. In manual mode, the state of the relay can be changed by briefly pressing the +/– button on the front of the controller or an external button connected to the timer control input.


Timer functions

  • 256 programs for switching the relay on/off;
  • Each of the programs can be executed in one of the seven date intervals defined in the annual cycle;
  • Ability to enter up to 32 holidays and select which programs will run on holidays;
  • For each of the work programs, it can be independently determined whether the program will be executed in an hourly cycle (fixed hour and minute) or in an astronomical cycle (related to the position of the sun in relation to the horizon);
  • In each of the astronomical programs, it is possible to set an independent shift of switching on/off in relation to the selected astronomical point (e.g. turn on one hour before sunset, turn off two hours after dusk);
  • For each of the programs, you can freely choose which days of the week it will be performed;
  • Possibility to program the timer with the free PCZ Konfigurator mobile application using the NFC* short-range radio communication system;
  • Possibility to protect the clock settings with a PIN code;
  • Advanced work time counter that allows you to measure the receiver activation time:
    • on the current day and month;
    • monthly, from the last 12 months;
    • total from the moment the clock was first started.
  • Auxiliary, resettable, work time counter;
  • Possibility of limiting the total time of the receiver activation (up to a maximum of 99999 hours);
  • Control input that allows connection of momentary external button;
  • Backlit LCD display with with adjustable brightness and contrast levels;
  • Replaceable 2032 type battery to keep the clock running in case of power failure**.

* Remote programming requires an Android phone with built-in NFC communication and free PCZ Configurator app (downloadable from Google Play store). NFC communication range is limited to a few centimeters, so a direct phone-to-timer connection is required to transfer the configuration from the app to the timer.
** In the event of a power failure, the internal battery will only support the internal clock so that the current time and date will not be lost. In the event of a power failure, all external timer functions, such as the display and relay, remain disabled.

Mobile application
Due to technical constraints imposed by Apple (regarding the use of the NFC module), it is not possible to make an application for iOS today.

Telephone parameters
It should be checked whether the used phone model has a built-in NFC module and if the Android version is equal or higher. 4.4.

Assembly of the device
Due to the operating characteristics of the NFC module, it is not recommended to mount the clock near devices that emit electromagnetic fields (eg transformers, contactors).

Software version
Currently sold is a PCZ-529 clock with index 3 (PCZ-529.3). It is an index denoting the version of the clock software.
