    What is the nomenclature for an 120V AC-powered timer module that turns on its load when power is first applied, keeps the load turned on during the timing interval (5min), and then turns off the load even though power remains applied to the timer.

    Are you looking for a "time delay relay"?

    We manufacture the control boards for a relay manufacturer. They call them "delay on release" from the mil spec.

    Thanks for the responses. Seeing them explains why I was confused. I think that ShortBus has the answer....
