The CT4 Series CYCL-TIME™ percentage timer is designed for use in applications where a repetitive “on” time of a fixed cycle needs to be a variable. This series of panel-mounted percentage timers are ideally suited for irrigation control, chemical feeding, programmed temperature control, electric heaters and ovens, motor control, and lubrication systems.
Made in the USA, the CT4 unit is accurate, economical, enclosed, and features an easy-to-set dial. With four bolts at the corners of the timer’s front dial plate, this unit is capable of securely mounting in panels up to ¼ inches thick. The CT4 timer is engineered to fit the same cutout as the Eagle Signal HQ4E percent timer.
The CT4 is a direct replacement for the HQ4E

SEE HOW CENTER PIVOT IRRIGATION APPLICATIONS CAN BENEFIT FROM THE CT4 PERCENTAGE TIMERS
The CT4 percentage timer is much easier to install and adjust compared to other timers and with variable adjustment options and a hands-on interface, the CT4 offers quick maintenance and reduced downtime in center pivot irrigation system applications.
CENTER PIVOT IRRIGATION SYSTEM TIMERS
Crop irrigation requires intervals of water through a system of sprinklers. There are several types of irrigation systems, but one of the most popular is the center-pivot.
Most center pivot irrigation systems are propelled by a small electric motor mounted at each tower in what is called the tower panel. Each motor is controlled by a percentage timer. Without this timer, the farmer must manually switch the irrigation system on and off. The percentage timer is much easier to install and adjust compared to other timers. It also offers variable adjustment options and a hands-on interface. This is important for quick maintenance and little downtime. Once farmers know how much time the sprinklers need to run they can “set it and forget it”, freeing up their time for other duties.
EFFORTLESS INSTALLATION & USE
Wiring is made simple with only four electrical connections in a straight line on the back of the timer’s body. As mentioned before, this timer is made to be mounted on the control panel of the system. The CT4 boasts an easy-to-turn knob, allowing users to switch from one percentage to the next swiftly.
SAFE & TIMELY CROP IRRIGATION
A plastic guard over the terminal block helps protect the user’s fingers from being exposed to the contactors. Once the timer is set, it will not rotate any further without intentional force from the user. The housing protects the internal mechanics of the timer from environmental elements resulting in a longer-lasting product and additional safety.
