Help with digital timer wiring


I was hoping somebody with more knowledge than me could help with wiring a Frontier Timer for water heater. The heater has 3 green, black & Red color. The timer has 5 connector name,
1. Live
2. Neutral
3. (Dunno)
4. NC
5. No

I'm using 240V/16A here,
This is a link to the timer manual

Any Idea? Thanks for help.

What I mean is the manufacture should have a wiring diagram i.e. -black & white(red) are live & neutral no= normally open nc= normally closed witch go to the limit switch (green) also check to see if they intend for an axillary switch

Help with digital timer wiring


According to the wiring diagram in the rightmost pic.,
Terms 1 & 2 need 240v all the time.
Term 3 & 5 is normally open, 3 & 4 is normally closed.
Almost always you'd use 3 & 5 in series with the load and with the 240v power.
I suppose they supplied you with mating female connectors for these connector pins? Don't solder to these terminals unless they say you can.
