    It was nice of you to post all the specs of the timer but I have some input in regard to Line 6.1... Even though the timer can handle a 15 Amp resistive load @120V it cannot however do 15 amps of ballast lighting. It can only give you long reliable operation of 3 Amps of ballast lighting.

    I have years of experience with this exact same timer. I have recently read through a thread on this site where the timer had stopped working and sure enough there were too many amps being drawn from the timer receptacle. Not to say that you shouldn't use this timer. It is a great timer for directly supplying 250W or less and it is a great choice for energizing the holding coil of a lighting contactor that can handle the load of miltiple ballasts right up to 1500 watts.

    It will work for an unpredictable amount of time if it directly supplies any ballast higher than 3 amps @ 120 volts. This is why every grower using a 400 watt or more ballast should become familiar with lighting contactors or how to use a 3-pole motor starter to the same end. Try not to buy lighting controllers if you are confident enough to do a little reading and do some of your own wiring. A lighting controller will cost way more than a DIY version that could handle many more lights.
