    Hello hoping someone can help a novice sparky. I'm trying to wire up two AC loads to a timer whereby, when one of the loads is On the other is Off and then vice versa as they respond to the timer. The timer I have bought is a H5CX-AD by omron - description attached - which I was told would handle the job. Problem is it seems like the timer is much more clever than I really needed and now I can't interpret its many many features! I think I need the relay cycle setting but I'm not sure about what the "twin Timer" function refers to? And as for wiring up the two loads to the terminals......I'm also a bit mystified as to where the earth wire is supposed to go. Oh well - hoping someone with more knowledge than me and a little spare time can point out a few basics. Cheers - KiwiJake
