I need to turn a device on like 10 seconds then off for like 30 minutes.  It can control either 5 VDC or 110 VAC.  Cheap and something I can do without having to order are bonuses.  I'm stumped.

It needs to repeat that cycle? For how long?

I can almost guarantee it would be cheaper to order online than at a store, but you're in Florida, surely there's a hydroponics store nearby. A digital Flood and drain timer would be your bet.

Think I'm going to order this tomorrow unless someone can come up with a better solution.

That looks like the best version I can come up with.

I have a couple old mechanical light timers similar to this:  I picked mine up used at yard sales for a few dollars each, but even new they're less than $20 at Home Depot.  Intermatic is a good brand name, but there are many others.  It just plugs into the wall socket, and then you plug your device into it.


Edit:  I just re-read your post and you only want to turn it on for ten seconds (I was thinking ten minutes.)  So, this style probably won't work.

Check out the local grocery store's produce department and ask what they use to spray down the greens.

Thanks but I'm betting they use an industrial timer that I can't get today.  I just ordered the Amazon timer.  Should be here Wednesday.
