Where can I find a heavy duty electrical timer for MH online

Anyone purchased or know where I can purchase a heavy duty electrical timer online to put on my MH lighting? I does not have to be water resistant etc. I have a separate 30 amp circuit ran just for my lights so it can be placed at the circuit panel.

What I used was actually an in-wall style digital timer. I built an extension box that housed the timer and an outlet which was wired to the timer. I picked them up at home depot for about... 15-20 each. I'll see if I can find a link.
