Timer for aquarium

Caring for an aquarium is a constant and rather monotonous action, but the clearer their implementation, the better for the aquarium ecosystem. Maintaining permanent conditions for aquarium dwellers has a positive effect on their health and behavior.

Maintenance of the aquarium provides many routine procedures that must be performed continuously and preferably on a clear schedule. A timer will help to simplify and partially automate the maintenance of the aquarium.

This device allows you to pre-configure and automate the process of shutting down and turning on the various aquarium equipment at a specified time.

Especially designed timers for the aquarium do not exist, and we are talking about ordinary devices that turn on and off the power supply in accordance with predetermined intervals. However, among the many existing models of timers, not all are suitable for use in an aquarium.

The main requirement for the device is its high moisture resistance.

Conventionally, all types of timers can be divided into:

– mechanical;
– autonomous electronic;
– electronic, powered by the mains;
– electronic, powered by a backup battery and power;
– electromechanical, powered by the mains;
– Electromechanical, powered by a backup battery and power supply;
– autonomous electromechanical.

The principle of operation of the timer is not so important, however, certain differences affect the way it is operated.

Mechanical timers require constant winding, which is not very convenient.

Electronic and electromechanical devices powered by the mains, in the event of a power failure, can reset the settings and deviate from the set parameters. In autonomous timers, you must periodically change batteries. These flaws are devoid of appliances that are powered from the mains, and in the event of a power outage, they autonomously switch to using a backup power source, while retaining all the specified parameters.

The backup battery automatically charges when the mains is restored. Thus, dual-power timers, both electromechanical and electronic, are the safest and require the least amount of time during operation.

A plus of electronic timers is also a wider range of possibilities for setting the schedule of operation of any aquarium equipment. In other words, the more options the timer has, the more opportunities there are for its use in Aquarism.
