How do you wire a photo cell to over ride a time clock


1) Copy following link for wiring photo cell:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-and-troubleshoot-photo-eye.html

2) Copy following link for several timer wiring diagrams.
The photo cell is basically a switch, and the timer is also a switch.
2 switches can override each other if both switches are 3-way.
However a photocell is not a 3-way switch, and most timers are not 3-way timers.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Timer-with-remote-control.html#switch

3) If you connect a timer to a NO-NC relay, and also connect photo cell to NO-NC relay, then both timer and photo cell become 3-way switches. Except with a limitation. Neither switch can turn the load OFF when the other switch is ON.

4) Add a comment Feb 2013
What timer do you have?
What voltage?
What load is controlled by timer?

Instalation photo cell on timer


You posted under T1471BR timer.
This is a 4PST timer
Do not install photo eye on input voltage from breaker box, because that will stop timer clock from operating except nighttime, and then clock time will be off.
The timer clock terminals are A and B, so Connect white neutral to terminal A and black Hot wire to terminal B.
The terminal switch terminals are dry and receive no power when input terminal A and B have power.
Copy following link for illustration showing typical timer wiring.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T1471BR-wiring-500.jpg
Using illustration above: If You want to add photo eye, Remove black wire from terminal 5 to light bulb. Then Connect photo eye black wire to terminal 5, connect photo eye white wire to white wire at light bulb, and connect photo eye red wire to black wire at light bulb.
Copy following link for Intermatic T1400 series product manuals, 3-phase wiring, etc

How do you wire a intermatic k4123c photo cell to lights that are 208volts,you dont need a nuetral wire for 208,what do you do with the black,red,and white wires on the photo cell


I near as I can tell, each Intermatic photo cell needs a neutral wire.
Open following link for illustrations of wiring.

Call Intermatic:
http://www.intermatic.com/customer%20service.aspx

If your breaker box has 120Volt service and a neutral busbar, then connect photo cell white wire to bare ground wire until you have time to run separate neutral line.

Could u email me a wiring diagram?


You posted under Intermatic photo cell
Open following image to see how to wire all in-line photo cells.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/K4236C-photo-control-450.jpg

Photo cell black wire connects to black Hot wire from breaker box. This will power the photo cell.
Photo cell red wire connects to Load. Red wire turns ON when photo cell turns ON.
Photo cell white wire connects to white Neutral wire. White wire completes circuit to photo cell and will power the switch mechanism inside photo cell.

Lost wiring manual


The wiring manual is no longer available for that model from Intermatic. However, I can tell you that the black wire on the photo cell connects to the incoming hot wire, (usually black). The red wire on the photo cell connects to the wire that goes to the light (usually black). The white wire on the photo cell connects to _both_ the incoming white (neutral) wire and the white (neutral) wire that goes to the light or load.
