    Countdown timer for Braun ceiling fans

    The Braun series of ultra quiet ceiling fans(XB80)specify they are to be controlled by
    an ON/OFF, mechanical, or relay type of switch. They cannot be speed controlled.
    The line voltage is fed to a 2 by 8 inch circuit board that converts the AC to DC.
    The fan is just too quiet to not have some kind of timer on it. An Amazon customer left a review
    of the Maestro MA-T51MN, saying it worked just fine on his XB80, but that was one positive against many
    warnings. Anybody got an opinion? Dale.

    If your fan is low voltage and does not draw enough amps, the Maestro timer will turn on and off rapidly... being more of a headache than a help. If your fan is 120V you should be fine.

    DaleJ,

    The MA-T51MN will send a digital on and off signal. It will not try to control the speed at all. The MA-T51MN has a minimum load of 5 watts (compared to the MA-T51 at 40 watts) and should not experience any rapid on/off issues that may be experienced if the minimum load is not met. Please keep in mind the MA-T51MN is a neutral based control, and will need a neutral connection in the wall box in order to function.
