The LX-5116U is a Wall Mount Analog Clock with a 16" viewing diameter. The LX-5116U is designed to operate as a Time Code Reader, Stand-Alone Clock or Impulse Clock. It can read, decode and display time information from most any Master Clock or other source of time code. A rear-mounted DIP switch permits the clock to display time as received from a source of SMPTE/EBU, ASCII or ESE Time Code (the Impulse Clock mode may be replaced with an IRIG-B input mode as a factory option). After a very simple "set-up" procedure and receipt of time code, the unit automatically sets itself to the exact time and continuously slaves to the time code (If time code is lost, an error indicator is lit and the clock continues counting while referencing an internal crystal time base).
Other user defined modes of operation allow the LX-5116U to be synchronized to a Master Clock with a 1 PPS alternating 12 or 24 VDC "Favag" type output or to be set to real time and allowed to run based on its internal crystal oscillator. The second hand is completely silent and can be programmed for "Sweep" mode or "Step" mode. The initial set-up allows the unit to have its hours (and/or minutes) offset to that of another time zone. Also, since the clock can continuously track time code, there is no need to twice annually compensate for daylight saving time (assuming the Master Clock automatically adjusts itself accordingly).
