GRANDVIEW, Mo. — Peterson Manufacturing has rolled out its new 5600 Timer Box Switch, a new product that controls interior cargo lights with a push-button.
According to the company, the 5600 Timer Box provides flexible, efficient switching of LED lights in a compact, easily installed unit. The Timer Box is factory programmed to operate interior lights in 30-minute intervals with one touch of its sealed membrane button. Lights flash at each button push to confirm that the command was received. The button can be pushed up to four times, extending the lights-on to a total uninterrupted time of two hours. Lights can be turned off at any time by simply pressing and holding the button.
“One unique and thoughtful function of our 5600 is its ‘curtain call’ feature,” said Steve Meagher, Peterson vice-president, sales. “Two minutes before the automatic shut-off, the system momentarily dims the lights as an alert. Operators can renew the 30-minute lights-on cycle at any time with a button push.”
