    Paragon modular defrost module retrofit(??)

    Have any of you ever figured out what could be used as an economical replacement for these garbage plastic-wheel defrost timers (you know, the one with the drive motor on the left and then you can stack program modules on it)?

    I know of some older racks that use this setup, I know an Emerson E2 with 8RO boards would be straightforward and easy for most technicians to install and use but at an unnecessarily high cost for simple defrost control... Modules that stick can halt the entire row of timers, in general I find them to be unreliable.

    Unfortunately there is not enough room in a typical panel for a giant row of 8145-20 timers... any thoughts or opinions are welcome!

    The Paragon 877 gang timers are quite reliable in my experience. Precision timers on the other hand were rather a PITA.

    For an electronic type defrost timer you might try this one: http://www.genesis-international.com...vac/WT-13R.pdf
