TC 18 Timeclock

Scalable Time Based Controller

Introducing ELTEC’s new TC-18 scalable* time clock. The TC-18 has all the benefits of the NTC-17E programmable time clock, but can be easily upgraded to receive programming from a central computer.  By inserting a plug-in 900 MHz spread spectrum radio on the PCB and installing an antenna along with a gateway (LANG 3000), the TC-18 becomes a TC-3000. Positioning for the future is now a reality.
The TC-18 includes a built-in DC flasher eliminating Complete programming from the keypad with easy to follow ‘common sense’ wording on the LCD screen, allows on-site testing and programming updates/changes.

The TC-18 includes a built-in DC flasher eliminating the need for a separate flasher in solar powered systems.  It operates on either 12VDC (solar) or 120VAC.

Applications

  • School Zone Crossing Signals
  • Park Lighting
  • Changeable Message Signs
  • Time Locks: gates & doors
  • HVAC on/off Timing Function
  • Pump Control

DL Pro 18 Software

ELTEC’s DLPRO 18 software was developed for easy navigation.  Each window uses virtual graphics with drop-down calendars and time tools (no commands) with straight forward programming screens.  Software updates are emailed.  The firmware is upgradable via the USB port. It runs on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and 8 operating systems.

The DLPRO 18 software kit consists of a CD, user manual, and a six foot USB cable for program transfer from computer to clock.
