Abstract

949,549. Timer control of electric circuits. CONTROLS CO. OF AMERICA. Jan. 21, 1960 [March 16, 1959], No. 31927/63. Divided out of 949, 542. Heading G3T. A control device comprises a timer having timing control means for controlling selectable cycles of operation e.g. of a washing machine, a timing motor for driving said timing control means through the selected cycle at a slow speed, and a further motor for advancing said timing control means at a high speed to the desired starting position for the cycle and halting it automatically at that position. If, for example, a normally closed manually operable cycle preselection switch SM is opened, a momentary contact switch 102 is closed and a shaded pole motor 38 is energized through a printed circuit and a wiper brush 92 to drive the timer at a high speed and advance the brush 92 around the printed circuit in step by step manner. At the same time the solenoid action of the rotor of motor 38 throws rotor switch 82 over to contact 86 to establish a holding circuit shunting the switch 102 and breaking the circuit to the timer motor. After each step advance of brush 92 a cam 88 allows the opening of a search switch 55, which normally shunts the printed circuit, and motor 38 continues advancing brush 92 if the printed circuit is complete. When the brush reaches contact segment M in series with open switch SM then opening of search switch SS causes motor 38 to be de-energized as the circuit through motor coil 106 is broken. Rotor switch 82 then returns to its initial position and closes the circuit to the timer motor which then drives the timing control means at a slow speed through the cycle selected by actuation of switch SM. Specifications 949,547, 949,548 and 949,551 also are referred to.
