The DTAV40E2 electronic auto-voltage defrost timer has 7-Day flexible scheduling and to the minute Defrost duration control to increase system efficiency. The DTAV40E2 automatically detects the appropriate supply voltage between 120 and 240 VAC. This auto-voltage feature reduces potential wiring errors and installation time. The battery backup feature maintains timing during Power Outages. The DTAV40E2 is time-initiated and temperature, pressure, or time-terminated. The LED lights indicate defrost or refrigeration cycles. Contacts rated for 40 amps makes the DTAV40E2 ideal for all loads. The DTAV40E2 replaces many existing models and is the one clock to stock

New Product Highlights


The Intermatic® line of occupancy sensors are engineered and tested for long-lasting performance. In-Wall and Ceiling Mount sensors in both PIR (infrared) and dual (PIR/ultrasonic) technologies can monitor virtually any area within a building, providing solutions for any retrofit or new construction project. They utilize zero-crossing technology to suppress inrush current impact, supplying reliable ON/OFF sensing no matter the lighting technology.


The Intermatic® ICUBE™ Adaptive Defrost Module cuts defrost cycles--and utility bills--for the food service industry. Designed by Grässlin by Intermatic for commercial walk-in coolers and freezers, the smart-sensing technology behind the ICUBE™ continuously monitors evaporator coil temperatures and only allows defrosting when necessary at the next programmed timer interval.

Surge Protective Device Group Shot

The Intermatic® Surge Protective Device with Consumable Modules covers 100% of a home’s big investment equipment, from appliances and computers, to HVAC equipment and TVs. The Surge Protective Device uses replaceable Consumable Modules that allows homeowners to easily and safely replace a module when the built-in LED light indicates it has been compromised.
