Detailed Description for Mechanical Timer

Mechanical timers use clockwork for measuring time. Manual timers are typically set by turning a dial for the time interval desired; turning a dial stores energy in the mainspring to run a mechanism. They function similarly for a mechanical alarm clock; the energy in the mainspring causes is to balance wheel for rotating back and forth. Each swing of a wheel releases the gear train for moving forward by a small fixed amount, causing the dial to move steadily backward until it reaches zero when a lever arm strikes of a bell. The mechanical kitchen timer was invented in 1926 by Thomas Norman Hicks. Some comparatively less accurate, cheaper mechanisms use of flat paddle called as fan fly that spins against air resistance; low-precision mechanical egg-timers are sometimes of this type.


The simplest and oldest type of mechanical timer is the hourglass, in which the fixed amount of sand drains through a narrow opening from one chamber to another for measuring a time interval.




The minimum time is the shortest interval for which mechanical timers can be manipulated. By contrast, the maximum time is the longest, configurable time interval. Typically, timing ranges are analyzed in seconds or hours. Devices with analog clocks display time intervals accordingly. In terms of features, some mechanical timers include a engraved counter/timer mechanism. Others provide an audible alarm or a dial indicator instead of rotating digits. Devices with two shafts are commonly available. Typically, these mechanical timers have a dual shaft on one face for dual inputs, or left and right shaft extensions for left and right inputs. Special shaft lengths, diameters and “flat” alterations are available.




Mechanical timers differ in terms of materials and mounting methods. Some items are compact, rugged, or corrosion-resistant. Others provide varying degrees of resistance to environmental criterias such as operating temperature, vibration, and shock. In terms of mounting methods, some mechanical timers are flush-mounted, handheld, or portable. Others mount on panels, racks, or DIN rails
