The Henschel Digital Master

Clock System provides a syn- chronized display of time in various shipboard locations. The master clock displays both local time and Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

This crystal controlled, microcomputer based master clock transmits multiplexed time (hours, minutes and seconds) and date (month, day and year) information to a maximum of 40 remote repeater clocks and/or data and bell loggers.

The remote repeater clocks display either local time or GMT in various mounting configurations to suit most applications.

Time is continuously displayed on both the master and repeater clocks by red, 6 digit LED displays, easily viewed up to 25 feet away. The date is displayed on the master clock by use of a front panel switch. This calendar function is set to maintain the correct date for changes in month, day, year and leap year.

Battery back-up is provided to maintain both time and date in the master clock and in a few selected repeater clocks during any loss of input power.

Clock accuracy is maintained independent of the input power frequency by a self-contained crystal oscillator. Time and date are easily set by means of pushbuttons on the front panel. When changing time zones, hours may be changed independently of minutes and seconds so that time accuracy is not lost.
