Daily Timers are the timers that have a real time clock in built. Hence, you can set the actual clock time at which you want your load to turn ON and OFF. The daily times have a 4 digit led display that always indicate the current clock time. There will be a battery inside to keep the clock running even in case of a power failure. The daily timers offer a provision to set up-to 8 different ON and OFF timings for the load. The user can choose the number of times it has to be set up. The provision is also given to adjust the system clock. The daily timers are available for all types of motor starters and lighting loads.

The daily timers find various applications in agriculture and domestic sector.
1) Street light timers:
This is a widely used application. The timer can be set to turn ON the lights at a particular time in the evening and turn OFF the lights at a particular time in the morning. Widely used by the governing bodies for the street lighting purpose.
2) Basic light timers for domestic and industrial applications:
There are applications that require the lighting load to be turned ON automatically for some time in the evening every single day without human intervention. This can be achieved using daily timers.
3) Turning ON the water heaters or any other load for a specific time everyday:
The applications that require any particular load to be turned ON for a specific time interval everyday can be achieved by daily timers. Daily timers are available for different load capacities.
4) In conditions where the availability of water in the bore well is low:
There are many conditions where the ground water table is low and the motor once turned ON can pump the water only for a specific time and then it goes dry. However, if the motor is not turned ON for sometime after this, the water table gets recharged and again the bore well motor can be run for some more time. Here, daily timers can be used to set the ON duration time for few minutes lesser than it would take for the pump to go dry and the next ON duration after the approximate recharge time. By doing this, the available water can be effectively utilized without the danger of motor failing due to dry run.
5) In conditions where there is excess water and it is sufficient if the motor is run only for a specific time:
There are applications where in the water source is very good and one needs to run the motor only for a specific time interval to avoid the excess watering. Daily timers come in handy in these applications where the user can set the ON time as the time for which watering should take place. Hence, one can make sure there will not be excess watering to the crops.
6) Misting Systems for Poultry:
Poultries will have the fogging systems in place to maintain the necessary room temperature. These foggers are usually turned ON for a short interval during the summers to maintains the necessary room temperature and hence not allowing the temperatures to excess a certain range which will cause damage to the livestock. Daily timers are hence attached to the foggers and the timing are fixed as to turn ON the misting to few minutes during the hours when the temperature is more based on the size of the poultry farm.
7) Commercial Complexes lighting and motor operation:
The commercial complexes require the lighting to be turned ON every day from evening till the closing times. Also, the motors can be made to run only for a specific time intervalas based on the consumption. These can be set using daily timers.
8) Using Air Conditioners for a specific time intervals::
The air conditioners in the houses and the offices/ showrooms can be made to run automatically for specific time intervals everyday. By doing this, the electricity consumption can be reduced to a great extent which will impact in the electricity bill. Daily timers are effective in this application.
The horticultural crops will need misting systems to be incorporated to maintain the humidity. The daily timers can be attached to the same and the misting systems can be made to operate based on the specific time intervals so as to maintain the desired humidity.
10) Maintaining the temperature for floral crops during night:
Several floral crops will need the humid conditions to be maintained throughout the night to get better yield. The farmers will have several incandescent bulbs in place to raise the temperature. However, this will require periodic turning ON and OFF the lights based on the requirement. The daily timers can be used for this purpose for the lighting load to be periodically turned ON and OFF throughout the nights. The daily timers are available for the different lighting loads.
11) To keep the domestic borewell motor in running condition once a while :
There will usually be 2 sources of water for domestic applications. The first one will be the corporation/municipal water and the other one will be the private Bore wells. It will be corporation water that will be used regularly and Bore well will be a back up source. In these conditions, it is very important to keep the Borewell motor in running condition at least once every day for a short duration. This can be achieved using the daily timers where in you can set the ON time as a small time for every day.
12) Domestic motor pumps:
In many of the domestic applications, there will be a pattern of water usage. The motor can be turned ON only for a specific time intervals there by making sure the water is not over utilized and at the same time limiting the usage. This will come in handy for the rented houses where in the land lord would want to limit the water usage for every house. Daily timers can hence be used for these applications.
