Current Interrupter – The Quasar - Tinker & Rasor

Using GPS Technology for Exact Timing!
We've Done It Again!

Tinker & Rasor has just released another great current interrupter. This time, we are proud to announce the release of the Quasar. The Quasar is a solid state current interrupter capable of switching up to 100 amps of current. The Quasar uses a GPS receiver to achieve a timing accuracy of +/- 200 nanoseconds. The Quasar will operate for over 12 hours on its internal battery, or indefinitely on external 120 vac or 12 vdc power sources. The Quasar is easy to program and can hold up to 7 interrupt programs in memory. Programs will run automatically. You can set the date, time on, time off, and cycle duration, as well as operate the unit manually. Using GPS technology, the Quasar always knows Universal Mean Time (Greenwich Mean Time), and with GPS lock, the Quasar will automatically adjust to your time zone, based on longitude.

Power ON LED Indicates that the Quasar is on when lit.
12 Volt AUX. Charge Used to power the Quasar or charge the internal battery from an external 12 volt dc power source.
Circuit Closed LED Indicates that current will flow through the interrupter contacts when lit.
GPS Lock LED Indicates that the GPS receiver has acquired the GPS signal and updated the Quasar’s internal clock.
Battery Charging LED Indicates that the battery is charging from an external AC. power source, or that the Quasar is operating from external power.
LCD Display Used to view programming and GPS data.
Keypad Used to program interrupt cycles.
Keypad Large size keypad for use with gloves.
