CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 8 Introduction The CLKTCD is a precision analog clock containing a stepper motor drive and advanced microprocessor controlled electronics. IRIG‐B Defined by the Range Commanders Council, U.S. Army White Sands Missile Range. IRIG (Inter‐
range Instrumentation Group) is used by military, government, power industry and many other commercial and industrial applications. The CLKTCD decodes IRIG‐B in both a 1 kHz modulated (IRIG‐B1) and un‐modulated/pulse width coded/DC level shifted (IRIG‐B0) format. All formats of IRIG‐B time code decoded by the CLKTCD use the time of year information BCD (Binary Coded Decimal). All formats of IRIG‐B time code decoded by the CLKTCD also use the extended year/date and time zone information in the control functions as defined by the IEEE 1344 specification. SBS (Straight Binary Seconds) information is not decoded. Manchester format/encoding is not supported. The CLKTCD can be configured for world‐wide time zone offset and automatic DST (Daylight Saving Time) adjustment and allows for reliable, accurate and maintenance free operation. Use of the automatic DST feature requires that the clock be enabled to accept the time code date encoding, using the USB port and CLKTCD‐Set (Clock Time Code Display) USB Configuration Utility (i.e. Windows software application). The time code reference must provide date encoding in the control bits/fields to the Masterclock/Leitch date encoding standard for SMPTE or the IEEE‐1344 year encoding for IRIG‐B. SMPTE Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers format is available in frame rates of 24, 25, and 30 frames second. The CLKTCD time code clock supports all three formats. All formats of SMPTE time code decoded by the CLKTCD use the full date information in the user bits as defined by Leitch, Inc. The CLKTCD does not support decoding of SMPTE drop‐frame, reverse running, VITC, NTSC, color frame, blackburst or other video time code formats and synchronization options. Please refer to the “Specifications” section of this document for additional details on each model. For available options, visit Masterclock’s website: www.masterclock.com Features • RTC (Real Time Clock) backup retains time during loss of power or reference. • Self‐correcting hands once power and/or Time Code reference is established. • Time zone offsets (to one second resolution) supports any biasing requirements. • DST configuration. • TCXO (Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator) for +/‐ 1 min year accuracy with no reference in (freewheeling). • All configuration settings retained in non‐volatile flash memory. • Second Hand with sweep or step option. • Self‐correcting hands after loss of power and/or time code reference and DST changes. • Status LED (Light Emitting Diode) on clock face, located at the 6 o’clock position.

Mount the bracket on the wall/conduit box, attach the time code cable and secure the clock to the bracket using the supplied retaining screw. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 13 12” Dual Face Model The dual face mounting bracket supplied, allows the 12” dual face clock to be mounted on the wall or from the ceiling, depending on the specific version. Attach the time code cable and secure the clock to the bracket using the supplied screws. ______ CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 14 Operating Environment The CLKTCD clock contains a stepper motor and microprocessor control electronics designed to operate indoors between 0‐50°C with 0‐90% relative humidity. The CLKTCD is not water or moisture proof. Treat it as you would any other delicate electronic device and do not expose it to water, excessive heat or physical abuse. Operation After applying power, the CLKTCD will go through an internal checkout. UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) from the RTC (Real Time Clock) backup will then be displayed plus any Time Zone and/or DST (Daylight Saving Time) offsets, until a time code signal is acquired. If time code is not “locked”, the red status LED will be on solid until time code is acquired. Status LED The red LED on the CLKTCD clock face, located at the 6:00 indicates; LED STATE STATUS INDICATION Off The clock acquired valid time code and has synchronized its internal RTC to the time code reference. The internal clock time is considered accurate. The clock hands may be adjusting/correcting rapidly either clockwise or counter‐clockwise during a correction. On Solid The clock is not able to decode the time code reference or the reference is not present. Time displayed on the face of the clock is based upon internal and TCXO and should not be considered accurate. Correction Behavior The correction cycle engages when there’s a change to the internal RTC reference as compared to the time code reference. 1. While acquisition of Time Code. • Initial startup • After loss of power • After loss of Time Code 2. Change to the clocks configurations. • DIP switch settings • CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility • Reset Device CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 15 Hand Position The hands will set adjust to the time code reference, plus any time zone and/or DST offsets. If for any reason the clock hands become slightly out of alignment, a calibration setting function has been provided in CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility or using the buttons located on the back. The hands of the CLKTCD cannot be set manually. Do not attempt to open the clock to access the hands. This action will void your warranty. This device has no user serviceable parts inside. The CLKTCD series can be configured using one of the following methods: • DIP Switches and buttons. • CLKTCD‐Set, USB Configuration Utility via the USB port. Please refer to the “Configuration” section of this document for additional details on how to adjust the settings. If the configuration software is used to configure the clock, the DIP switch settings will be ignored or over‐ridden. In order to restore the configuration mode to the use of the DIP switches, the unit must be Reset to the factory default mode. Time Zone Offsets All time code analog clocks maintain time as UTC. A time zone offset or bias can be used to adjust the time for display purposes. A bias can be set as a positive (+) offset indicating that the unit leads the UTC time or negative (‐) offset value indicating the unit lags behind UTC time. An offset with a resolution of one half hour (via DIP switches) or 1 second (via CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility) can be achieved. If the time code input to the ADC‐A12C31 is not UTC, do not adjust the time zone and/or DST offset. Daylight Saving Time An automatic DST setting can be configured separately and in addition to a time zone offset. For SMPTE time codes, date must be encoded to the Leitch specification. IRIG‐B date decoding is supported for the IEEE 1344 standard. The incoming time code must have the date encoded in a format recognized by the CLKTCD for DST adjustments to be performed. For best reliability Masterclock recommends a time code reference that encodes full date information, such as the Masterclock GPS200A time code generator. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 16 The CLKTCD analog clock provides flexible configuration options supporting most DST standards. Pre 2007 Standard – U.S.A. and Canada Traditional US/Canada daylight/summer time is configured as one (1) hour positive bias. For the U.S. (through 2006) and Canada, daylight savings time begins on the first Sunday of April at 2:00AM (Local Time) and ends on the last Sunday of October at 2:00AM (Local Time). Post 2006 Standard – U.S.A. and Canada On August 8, 2005, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 was signed. This Act changed the time change dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S, effective in 2007. DST now begins on the second Sunday of March at 2:00 AM (Local Time) and end the first Sunday of November at 2:00 AM (Local Time). EU Standard – European Union In the European Union, daylight change times are defined relative to the UTC time of day instead of local time of day (like in the U.S.). For the European Union, summertime period begins at 1:00 AM UTC on the last Sunday of March and ends at 1:00 AM UTC on the last Sunday of October. European customers, please carefully consult the section entitled “Device Settings” for details on setting daylight time. To ensure proper hands‐free year‐around operation, DST adjustments must be configured using the daylight time option and not with the time zone offset option. Freewheeling Accuracy The CLKTCD has built‐in provisions to allow the clock to freewheel and maintain accuracy for extended periods in the absence of time code. These features also allow the unit to be set manually and operate without time code. TCXO and RTC circuit The CLKTCD contains a precision TCXO and RTC circuit allowing the clock to maintain an accuracy of +/‐ 1 minute per year to the last known time code input (+/‐ 165 mS per day) when time code is not preset or cannot be decoded (i.e. freewheeling mode). Maintenance‐free Rechargeable Battery The RTC and TCXO are maintained continuously from a rechargeable battery circuit during periods of power outage. Minimum holdover period is two weeks once the battery is charged. The battery will automatically charge when the unit is next powered and requires no maintenance. Non‐Volatile Configuration The clock configurations are maintained in non‐volatile memory allowing the current settings to be retained during power outages.

CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 22 Hand Calibration The CLKTCD analog clock hands have been pre‐set and aligned at the factory. This hand location and alignment information is retained in non‐volatile flash. The visual determination of the accuracy of the hand display should be done by comparing the clock hands only after the CLKTCD indicates that it is synchronized to time code and then only to a digital display or other reference that has also been locked, preferably to the same time code reference . The reference display should be set adjacent to the CLKTCD unit and eye movements should be minimized when doing comparisons. To adjust the hands 1. Select “Set” using switch S2.8 (ON). 2. Select either the 12:00:00 (OFF) or 6:00:00 (ON) position using switch S2.7. 3.

USB B port on clock Once the clock is powered on and connected to a computer via a USB cable (not supplied), the Windows Plug and Play manager will detect a new USB device and request drivers. The drivers are located at • CD, “Time Code Products” Products\CLKTCD\Drivers\ • Hard drive C:\Program Files\Masterclock\CLKTCD‐Set\Drivers\ CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 26 Using CLKTCD‐Set Open CLKTCD‐Set from the “Start Menu” or by double‐clicking the shortcut icon on the desktop. The top left section of the main window shows the firmware version and serial number of the clock. Located below this information is the current status of the clock display, this information is constantly updated. The Local Time is the time displayed on the clock face, including any time zone or DST offset information. The UTC Time is the internal time reference derived from the incoming time code and treated as UTC. This display update is not precise, but is meant to give you a view of the clock display time for basic troubleshooting and maintenance purposes. Also included is a Time Code Status which displays the type of incoming time code and/or the synchronization status. The [Time Zone] and [Daylight Saving Time] buttons on the right half of the window, give the clock complete flexibility to set and display any time zone and worldwide DST combination. The CLKTCD can be configured to display local time using time zone offsets and DST settings. These offset changes are made relative to UTC time. The clock always interprets the incoming time code as UTC. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 27 Time Zone Offset Modify the time zone by clicking the [Time Zone] button. This opens a new window that gives you a list of time zones, including descriptions to help with the selection. Select the desired time zone and click [OK] to close the window. Changes are applied when you click [OK]. Daylight Saving Time Configure and/or enable the daylight saving function by clicking the [Daylight Saving Time] button. North American and European Union DST settings are quickly entered by clicking the appropriate button; [US\Canada Standard] or [EU Standard]. Daylight saving time configurations will be applied when you click [OK]. US/Canada Standard, Post 2006

CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 28 Time Code Settings To use the automatic DST adjustments requires that date/year encoding is enabled. This product contains an automatic detection and gain control circuit for the incoming SMPTE 30/25/24 fps longitudinal/linear time code or for IRIG‐B(0) pulse width modulated or IRIG‐B(1) amplitude modulated time code. To support common SMPTE/IRIG‐B standard time codes without date/year encoding to the aforementioned standards, an option of ignoring the date information encoded in the time code is provided. By default the “Time Code Setting” is set to, “Do not use date information encoded in time code”. Set Date Time The [Set Date Time] feature lets you manually set the time and date for the clock. This may be most useful for lab situations as the clock keeps time via its internal precision oscillator and real‐
time clock when time code is not present. The time can either be set to the time of the Windows PC or a manual time and date can be entered. Practical use of this feature requires the clock to be removed from the time code reference. When the clock has access to a valid time code reference, information obtained via time code will immediately overwrite any manually established time/date. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 29 Clock Hand Position The Clock Hand Position button provides two functions. • Allows the user to calibrate or fine tune the hands of the clock • Set the second hand mode function from sweep to step mode. Sweep mode Sweep mode is the default mode and displays a continuous second‐hand smooth motion. Step mode The step mode motion is similar to the motion of a quartz clock. The hand will pulse in one‐second intervals. To adjust the hands 1. Click [Clock Hand Position] to enter the alignment window. 2. Select the box, “Check to set clock”. 3. Enter the correct hour, minute and second currently displayed on the face of the clock. If the second is not currently aligned on a second mark, you can nudge the second hand forward incrementally by clicking [Forward]. 4. Click [OK] to accept the new settings. The new hand alignment settings will be stored in non‐volatile flash. The clock hands will adjust to the new settings and display the time after several moments. You can check the new settings with a digital display reference at this point to ensure that the hands have been correctly set.

Red status LED is always on. Possible reasons/solutions: 1. The CLKTCD is not currently connected to a valid time code reference. 2. There is a problem with the cabling between the CLKTCD and the time code reference. Verify that all cables and connectors are in good condition. 3. There is a ground loop or other type of interference between the CLKTCD and the time code reference. Verify that a common ground exists between the CLKTCD and the time code reference. If the cabling distance between the time code reference and the CLKTCD is large you might consider inserting an audio distribution amplifier or a Masterclock TCA100 time code amplifier in‐
line. 4. The signal level of the incoming time code is out of the range of the CLKTCD’s time code decoder’s circuitry. See the CLKTCD specification section for acceptable signal level ranges. 5. The time code reference, to the CLKTCD is not a recognized format. Verify that your time code reference is providing one of the time code formats that the CLKTCD can decode. Not displaying the correct [local] time. Possible reasons/solutions: 1. The unit is not receiving time code. Verify that the front LED status indicator is off. 2. The time code reference is referenced to UTC but your local time zone has not been configured. 3. Your DIP switch settings for DST may have been overridden by CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility. 4. You may be seeing the result of a double offset. Determine the time zone reference of your time code reference and then set the CLKTCD’s time zone offset to arrive at a correct local time. • If the time code reference is already providing time code with local time zone and/or DST offsets, then set the time zone and/or DST offset of the clock to UTC. • If the time code reference is providing UTC time code, then configure your clock to have a local time zone and/or DST offset. 5. Your time code reference is not providing the time/date that you expect. Contact the individual responsible for the time code reference for more information. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 33 Displayed time [local] is off a small amount. Possible reasons/solutions: 1. Perception/recognition response time. The average human ability to visually perceive and recognize time synchronization and/or instantaneous change between two visually separated systems is limited due to the movement of the eyes and the delayed response to process the data. To reduce this effect: • Place a digital display adjacent to the clock you are trying to verify the time on. • View the clocks from a position that will avoid eye movements. • Ensure that both clocks are locked to an accurate time code reference. • Ensure that both units have the same offset settings for time zone and/or DST. 2. CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility’s screen display is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) that is not being run at the highest priority level for the system. There will likely be a delay in processing the data and updating the screen, therefore it should not be considered an accurate reference. 3. Ensure that you are not using Drop‐Frame SMPTE time code. Drop‐Frame time code is not supported. Accurate time cannot be guaranteed with drop‐frame time code. 4. The clock hands have been incorrectly calibrated with either the calibration buttons or CLKTCD‐
Set configuration utility. See the calibration procedure for details on how to recalibrate the hands. DST is not properly negotiated. The date shown in the status window of CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility is always 01/01/2000. Possible reasons/solutions: 1. Your time code reference is not providing date/year information. The DST adjustment will not work unless valid date information is provided. Verify that your time code reference has either date encoding to the Leitch standard for SMPTE time code or year/date encoding to the IEEE 1344 specification for IRIG‐B/B1 time code. 2. The TC control DIP switches S2‐1 and S2‐2 have both been set to off and/or the time code date encoding has been disabled in the CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility. 3. Your time code reference already provides the DST adjustment. The DST adjustment in the CLKTCD should be disabled. 4. You have disabled the DST setting or the incorrect DST setting was enabled. The CLKTCD has DIP switches for enabling various modes of DST or disabling the DST option. In addition to the DIP switches, the CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility may be used to set the DST settings as well as all configuration settings of the clock. If the CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility is used, it will over‐ride the DIP switch settings. The clock hands are not moving and the red status LED is off. Possible Reasons/solutions: 1. The clock does not have power applied. 2. The Run/Set switch is in the SET position or the CLKTCD‐Set configuration utility is being used. 3. The internal power supply or the motor/motor drive has failed. There are no user serviceable parts inside the CLKNTD analog clock. Please contact Masterclock, Inc. if you require servicing or repair. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 34 Care and Cleaning Adherence to regular and proper cleaning procedures is recommended to preserve appearance. Scratched or otherwise damaged lens caused by misuse, mishandling, improper storage or improper cleaning is not covered under the limited warranty. Job Site Precautions It is recommended the clock be removed from the wall and stored face up in its protective shipment bag during painting and construction. New construction and renovations frequently require that the job site be cleaned of any excess mortar, paint, sealant, primers or other construction compounds. Only recommended cleaners should be used to clean the polycarbonate lens. Contact with harsh solvents such as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) or muriatic acid can result in surface degradation and possible crazing of the polycarbonate. When the clock is first installed, glazing compound and masking tape adhesive can be easily removed from the lens by applying naphtha (VMandP) or kerosene with a soft cloth, followed immediately with a thorough soap and water cleaning. Stainless Steel Case If your clock has a stainless steel case, a cleaner and polish designed for use on stainless steel is recommended. Use a recommended product to maintain and protect the stainless steel finish while resisting water spots and fingerprints. Compatible Cleaners and Polish The following cleaning and polish agent has been found to be compatible with the stainless steel case finish. Manufacturer's instructions should be followed. Magic® Complete™ Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish Spray (Magic American Products. Washing to Minimize Scratching Wash with a mild soap or detergent (such as 409™ (Clorox Co.), cleaner) and lukewarm water, using a clean sponge or a soft lint free cloth. DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS OR PAPER PRODUCTS TO CLEAN OR DRY THE LENS. Rinse well with clean water. Dry thoroughly with a chamois or moist cellulose sponge to prevent water spots. Do not scrub or use brushes or abrasives on these products; the UV coating is not mar resistant. Also do not use butyl cellosolve in direct sunlight. Fresh paint splashes, grease and smeared glazing compounds can be removed easily before drying by rubbing lightly with a good grade of naphtha or isopropyl alcohol. Follow the alcohol rub with a mild detergent wash with warm water and end with a thorough rinsing with clean water using a clean damp lint free cloth. CLKTCD Series User Manual – Rev. 2.0.1 Page 35 Minimize Hairline Scratches Always store the clock face‐up in the protective plastic shipping bag until ready for installation and during transporting to the installation site. Do not place the clock face (lens surface) down on any surface as this may scratch or mar the lens. Scratches and minor abrasions can be minimized by using a mild automobile polish. Three such products that tend to polish and fill scratches are Johnson Paste Wax, Novus Plastic Polish #1 and #2, Novus, Inc., Minneapolis, MN and Mirror Glaze plastic polish (MG M10) Mirror Bright Polish Co., Pasadena, CA. It is suggested that a test be made on a very small section of the polycarbonate lens with the product selected and that the polish manufacturer's instructions be followed. "Don't" ‐ Very Important • Don't store the clock without the protective plastic shipment bag. • Don't store or place the clock face down on any surface, as this may scratch the lens. • Don't use abrasive or highly alkaline cleaners. • Don't use paper towels, paper products, rayon or polyester cloths to clean or dry the lens. • Don't scrape the lens with squeegees, razor blades or other sharp instruments. • Don't ever use benzene, gasoline, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), muriatic acid or carbon tetrachloride on the lens. • Don't clean lenses in hot sun or on very hot days. Cleaning the Lens The following cleaning agents have been found to be compatible with the Polycarbonate and Acrylic lens. Manufacturer's instructions should be followed. Formula 409™ (Clorox Co.), Top Job™ (Proctor and Gamble), VM and P grade Naphtha Joy™(Proctor and Gamble), Windex w/Ammonia D™Drackett Products), Palmolive Liquid™(Colgate Palmolive). Foreign Substance Removal • Butyl Cellosolve (For removal of paints, marking pens, lipstick, etc.) • The use of adhesive tape or lint removal tools work well for lifting off old weathered paints. • To remove labels, stickers, etc., the use of kerosene, naphtha or petroleum spirits is generally effective. When the solvent will not penetrate sticker material, apply heat (hair dryer) to soften the adhesive and promote removal. Gasoline should never be used.
