The internet (amazon, ebay, aliexpress,etc) its full of digital timers when I search for it, longt time cycle, short time cycle etc.. but every goddamn timer is a minimum 1 minute, like "operation range: 1M-168H". The digital programable timers has usual the three adjusting main buttons plus some extra, it has the D/W (day/Week) button, the H (Hour) button, and M (Minutes) button, but where is the S (second) button ?????? I have been on daily basis searching and searching and searching and searched and slept and searching but can not find this magical timer. Is there anyone here (a black-belt electro dude) who would be so kind to help me find a 220V Digital Timer that is made for seconds and that it is up to several intervals per day ? Is there anything like this at all in this world? The goal of this timer is that I have a 220V-240V electrical thing at home that I want to run only for a few seconds at the time, and I want to run it like 20-40 times (intervals) every day.

Simply explained, I'm looking for a 220V Digital Programable Timer with many intervals and where the operating range is from 1 second to what ever..

So maybe 40 intervals of 5 seconds per day. :banghead:
Can you live with (5 seconds on and 30 minutes off) repeat for ever? {1 to 30 seconds & 1 to 60 minutes adjustable}
----edited-----
what are you turning on/off???
I need to know how much load. 8amps? motor or heating element?

Thanks a lot for reply :) That would be nice yes, but even nicer If I could adjust it myself... because I will mabye need to adjust it to little bit mor intrvals or less, and same with the cycle time. I was thinking 2 timers connected to eachother, one of the timers would be a normal digital progr timer and the other would be a relay/delay switch timer 0-10 second adjustable.. but it would be mutch nicer if it just could be an all-in-one timer with a operation range from seconds to hours.

This timer would be perfect ..i think, but ofcourseee its not EU outlet and 125V :(

I have some of these. You need to get the right version. They have 220VAC or 110VAC or 24VDC etc.
There are adjustments. (seconds/minutes/hours) and 1-60 (adjustment for off time and for on time)
You will have to insert wires into the ports. "Y1" , "Y2".
It is not a nice finished product. It is a part that is used to make something.
These things are used to run elevators and automatic doors. etc.

okay, it looks a bit extreme for my use, but is it just the same principle as on that short cycle timer in the picture above yours?

Can you for example adjust it to 7 seconds on, 20 minutes off, 7 seconds on, 20 minutes off etc ? Adjust it exactly how you wish with the cycles in seconds and the off- intervals/pauses in minutes ?
