Operation of the circuit is simple. It receives the triggering pulse from the buzzer terminals of the clock and an SCR triggers to activate the relay. The only drawback of the circuit is that, it is necessary to switch off the load manually by turning off the power. You can do experimentation to make an automatic operation also.
You can switch on a load such as Water pump automatically at the required time through this Clock Controlled Relay. It uses an ordinary clock to trigger the circuit to switch on the load. The load remains on till it is switched off manually.
