Prefect Controls are pleased to announce the arrival of a new member to the Hobsafe family, the PRE 9276.

The single gang unit is installed between the Hob and the cooker isolator switch, at a convenient location for those preparing food and ensures that hobs cannot be left on should the cook be distracted.

This version of Hobsafe has the same features as the popular 2 gang versions but is more compact. The capacity of the unit is 30Amps with 15, 20, 30, or 45-minute run-times being selectable during installation. There are both a neutral feed terminal and a neutral output. These large (13.3mm) terminals make fixing easy and quick – eliminating the fiddly issue of doubling up two cables into one terminal.

There are two modes of operation, Fixed – when the timer runs its course, or On/Off – where a second press of the button allows the time-run to be stopped at any point.

Hobsafe is easy to use with simple button operation and clear LED indicators, which are dimmable. When the current time-run is about to expire, the red ‘hob active’ LED will flash to warn that the hob is about to be turned off, giving the operator the opportunity to reset the timer if necessary.

Hobsafe conforms with EN60730 and is moulded in PC/ABS making the timer extremely durable. PC/ABS is fully UV stable and is resistant to cleaning products. A gloss finish overlay allows for easy cleaning.

Prefect controls are also able to install Hobsafe – providing a one stop peace of mind service

for student accommodation managers, safety conscious landlords, and care partners of those living with dementia.
