Thanks. I don't think I've seen those before. They're certainly low profile. Just what I was looking for. :-)

Update

I've temporarily assembled all the components on a piece of plywood to make sure they were connected properly. Here's what it looks like. I'm watching eBay for an appropriate enclosure. Once I...

"Sorry for my misunderstanding." <--- no need for that. :) I should have just voiced my confusion instead of of posting something that I knew didn't correspond with what you had said.

That's what I thought you were saying, but it didn't seem right that I'd have a high-voltage line connected to the timer. I should have just stated it that way in previous post.

I was thinking I...

Just a few more questions (hopefully :)) for clarification.

The 120V lines now only connect to the L1 and L2 terminals on the contactor, right?

From the low voltage side the stepdown...

Thanks, again, for the reply. :-)

Why would I want the B2E timer versus the B3S timer. Both have a 12V-24V model. The difference between the B2E and B3S is not apparent to me, so I'm curious why...

Hi again. I noticed that the timer isn't certified in Canada (only in EU). Since the timer will be inside my house I don't want to risk having my insurance being voided if I had a house fire due to...

Wow. Thanks. The breaker on this 240V circuit is 20A, so I'd want a contactor slightly larger than that for safety. Any I find on eBay would be fine or do you recommend certain brands be avoided. ...

Any chance of getting some pics of how you wired it? When you said "then I wired in a contactor to handle the switching load." I had no idea what would be needed. I have a friend whose hobby is...

Hi.
