5600 Timer Box Switch for Cargo Lights

Peterson Manufacturing

Peterson Manufacturing's 5600 Timer Box Switch, a system for controlling interior cargo lights to prevent unnecessary battery drain.

The Timer Box is factory-programmed to operate interior lights in 30-minute intervals with one touch of its sealed membrane button. Lights flash at each button push to confirm the command was received. The button can be pushed up to four times, extending the lights-on to a total uninterrupted time of two hours. Lights can be turned off at any time by pressing and holding the button.

The 5600 Timer Box provides flexible, efficient switching of LED lights in a compact and simple to install unit. Built to handle the wide temperature swings of vans and service bodies as well as the cold temperatures reefer trailers, the 5600 Series is available in both flush-mount and surface-mount versions.

The Timer Box is designed to pair with Peterson’s 359 Series cove light interior LED units. The 5600 can handle 10-amp maximum loads, enough to daisy chain up to twelve 359-3 cove lights, totaling nearly 10,000 system lumens, according to Peterson.
