DESCRIPTION
The AEXX Series of Multi-Function Clock/Timers are available with 1”, 2.3”, 4”, 8”, or 12” high
digits, visible from 5 feet to 500 feet away. Depending on the model, the AEXX Series clock/timers
function as four or six digit, 12 or 24 hour stand alone or secondary clocks, and simultaneously, as
presettable up or down counting elapsed, timers. A code blue timer which overrides all other time
functions is also included.
In addition there are optional enclosures, operating voltages and add-on functions such as the
Master/Driver output. Models are available for all types of installations including wall mount, ceiling
mount, rack mount, panel mount and free standing applications. Two sided models are also
available.
This manual covers all AE Series displays configured as Multi-Function Clock/Timers. To simplify
the manual the term’s “clock/timer”, or “AE Device” may be used to cover any of the specific
models.
The model numbers of the AEXX Series clock/timer are derived from the digit size and the
number of digits in the display. For example the AE24 is a 2.3-inch, four-digit display and the
AE126 is a twelve-inch, six-digit display. For two-sided versions, the model number would have
/2. For example: AE84/2 would be the model number for a Two-Sided, Eight Inch, Four-Digit
Clock/Timer. Each AE Display can be configured in a number of ways. For more information on
your specific model number and hardware configuration refer to the drawings included at the back
of this manual.

WIRING
There are many wiring configurations for the AEXX Series Clock/Timers, depending on the
functions used and the options installed.
On most standard units, clearly labeled pigtail leads wires are provided for the power at the back
panel of the unit. If you are using the AE Device as a secondary clock, such as on a 3 wire
synchronous system, additional pigtail leads can be provided (if specified with the order). In this
case, connect the secondary correction wiring to the pigtail lead wires marked K1+ and K1-.
Otherwise, you can use the terminal blocks provided on the circuit board assembly. For other
options such as the 2101 or 2102 Remote Switch Panel, refer to the addendum sheets provided
for that option. Also, see the wiring diagrams for more detail at the back of this manual.

OPERATION
Before applying power, place the SET/RUN switch to the RUN position and the
UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch to the CLOCK position. Apply power to the unit. The displays will
rotate during the power on self-test and then a version number will appear for a few seconds. The
AEXX will display 1:00 or 1:00:00 and begin keeping time. If a charged battery is installed, the
self-test will be bypassed.
SETTING TIME
With the UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch still in the CLOCK position, place the SET/RUN switch to the
SET position. The clock will now prompt for a 12 or 24 hour format. It will display 24Hr for 24
hour and 12Hr for 12-hour format. To change formats press the INCREMENT switch until the
desired format is shown and then press ENTER. The clock will now prompt for time. The hours’
digits will be flashing. Using the INCREMENT switch, set the hours to the desired hours, then
press ENTER. The minutes’ digits will be flashing. Again using the INCREMENT switch set the
desired minutes and then press ENTER. If this is a six-digit model, once again using the
INCREMENT switch set the desired seconds and then press ENTER. On four digit units, the
display is normally configured for Hours and Minutes and only hours and minutes will be
prompted. In each case after your preset is entered, press ENTER until the display flashes
dONE. Set the SET/RUN back to the RUN position. The display will flash
. Set the
SET/RUN switch back to RUN the instant you want time keeping to begin at the time you just
entered. The clock will now keep time as a free running clock or as a secondary clock, if
connected to a master clock.
SETTING THE UP COUNTER PRESET TIME
The AEXX Series Clock/Timer can be programmed to operate as an elapsed timer. On six digit
models it can count Hours, Minutes and Seconds of elapsed time. Four digit models count
Minutes and Seconds of elapsed time. Special four-digit version can count Hours and Minutes of
elapsed time. If you want to use the “count up to a preset and hold” feature with the UP timer, you
will need to set a preset time for the UP timer. A preset of 00:00 or 00:00:00 allows the
clock/timer to be used as a standard elapsed timer with a maximum count of 59:59 or 99:59:59,
depending on whether it is a four or six digit model. When the maximum count is reached the
timer rolls over and continues to count.
Set the UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch to the UP position. Set the SET/RUN switch to the SET
position. The hours’ digits will be flashing. Using the INCREMENT switch, set the desired hours
for the preset time, then press ENTER. The minutes’ digits will now be flashing. Set the desired
minutes the same way, then press ENTER. The seconds’ digits will then be flashing. If this is a
six-digit model, once again using the INCREMENT switch set the desired seconds and then press
ENTER. The display will then flash donE. Set the SET/RUN switch back to the RUN position. If
this is a four-digit model, the AE Device will only prompt for the minutes and seconds.
UP COUNTER ELAPSED TIME OPERATION
Once the desired preset value has been set, the unit is now ready to function as an UP count
elapsed timer.
Be sure the SET/RUN switch is in the RUN position. Press RESET to display 00:00 or 00:00:00.
Press the START/STOP switch to begin counting elapsed time. Press the START/STOP switch
again to stop and hold the count. Press the START/STOP switch again to resume elapsed time

counting. To start over press RESET to display 00:00 or 00:00:00 again. When the timer
reaches the preset value, it will stop and hold the time count. If you are using the 2101 or 2102
Remote Switch Panel with your clock/timer, the piezo alarm will sound for about 3 seconds when
the timer reaches the preset value.
During an UP count elapsed time operation, you can display any of the other time functions using
the UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch as desired.
SETTING THE DOWN COUNTER PRESET TIME
If you are using the AEXX Series Clock/Timer as a Down counting elapsed timer, you will need to
set a preset time to count down from. In this mode, the alarm and hold will occur at 00:00 or
00:00:00.
Set the UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch to the DOWN position. Set the SET/RUN switch to the SET
position. The hours’ digits will be flashing. Using the INCREMENT switch, set the desired hours
for the preset time, then press ENTER. The minutes’ digits will now be flashing. Set the desired
minutes the same way, then press ENTER. The seconds’ digits will then be flashing. Set the
desired seconds the same way, then press ENTER. The display will then flash donE. Set the
SET/RUN switch back to the RUN position. If this is a four-digit model, the AE Device will only
prompt for the minutes and seconds.
DOWN COUNTER ELAPSED TIME OPERATION
Once the desired preset value has been set, the unit is now ready to function as an DOWN count
elapsed timer.
Be sure the SET/RUN switch is in the RUN position. Press RESET to display the preset value,
which was set previously. Press the START/STOP switch to begin counting down elapsed time.
Press the START/STOP switch again to stop and hold the count. Press the START/STOP switch
again to resume elapsed time counting. To start over press RESET to display the preset value
again. When the timer reaches 00:00 or 00:00:00 it will stop and hold the count. If you are using
the 2101 or 2102 Remote Switch Panel with your clock/timer, the piezo alarm will sound for about
3 seconds when the timer reaches zero.
During a DOWN count elapsed time operation, you can display any of the other time functions
using the UP/DOWN/CLOCK switch as desired.
FREE RUNNING CLOCK OPERATION
The AEXX Series Clock/Timer can be used as a free running clock, simultaneously with the UP
and DOWN elapsed time features. No additional connections are required. It will run as a line
synchronous clock once time has been set.

REV 04/09/09
SECONDARY CLOCK OPERATION
The AEXX Series Clock/Timer can be used as a secondary clock, simultaneously with the UP and
th
DOWN elapsed time features. The most common secondary clock correction is the 59 Minute,
3-Wire System (Mode 2). Simply connect it to a 3-wire, synchronous master clock system (see
the Mode 2 wiring diagrams at the back of this manual), and set the mode switch on the circuit
board to position 2. It will free run in between corrections, synchronized to the AC power line.
The unit should not be used in the 24-hour format mode, if it is connected to a 3- wire
synchronous system, since the 12-hour corrections cannot distinguish AM and PM. During power
outages, a backup battery provides time keeping for up to 4 hours (rechargeable Ni-Cad).
SETTING THE SECONDARY CLOCK MODE SWITCH
A small rotary switch on the AEXX circuit board assembly is used to set the secondary clock
mode. To gain access to the circuit board assembly on standard units, remove one of the side
panels and slide out the back panel. On other versions refer to the specific drawing for
instructions. The numbers on this switch correspond to the modes indicated at the back of this
manual. For example, if your master clock supports a Simplex 93-9 secondary clock, you will
need to set the switch to MODE 2 by turning the switch to position 2. See the circuit board
assembly drawing at the back of this manual for details.

CODE BLUE OPERATION
The code blue feature provides an override to the AE Device, which forces it into a special, count
up elapsed time mode. A code blue is initiated by applying a signal ranging from 5 VDC to 120
VAC to the K2+ and K2- terminals. If your system has a dry contact output for code blue, the 12
VAC from the AE Device's power terminals can be used in conjunction with your dry contact. See
the sample wiring diagram below for more detail.
The code blue timer is the highest priority function of the AE Device while in the RUN mode. No
matter which of the 3 normal functions is being displayed, the code blue input will cause the AE
Device to begin counting elapsed time from 00:00 or 00:00:00.
The code blue timer can be stopped and the time held for viewing by pressing the START/STOP
button on the built-in control panel or the 2101 or 2102 Remote Switch Panel. The code blue
timer cannot be restarted from the switch panel.
To reset the AE Device back to normal operation, the RUN/SET switch must be set to the SET
position momentarily and then returned to the RUN position.
All other functions of the AE Device continue to operate in the background during a code blue.
Time of day and even time corrections from the master clock will not be affected. The standard
count up timer and the count down timer will continue as well, however if one of these timers is
switched on for display when a code blue occurs, that particular timer will be reset when the AE
Device is reset back to normal operation.
IMPORTANT CODE BLUE CONSIDERATIONS
The AE Device must be in the RUN mode for code blue to override.
The code blue contact does not have to open before resetting the AE Device back to normal
operation, but must be opened before another code blue can occur. You must have a transition
from open contact to closed contact to initiate a code blue.
If the code blue contact opens and closes again before the AE Device is reset back to normal
operation, the code blue timer will start over from 00:00 or 00:00:00, even if it had been stopped
using the START/STOP switch.
If a power fail occurs during a code blue and the back up battery is in place, and the code blue
switch is still closed when power returns, the code blue timer will start over from 00:00 or
00:00:00. If the code blue switch is open when power returns, the code blue timer will continue
counting the elapsed time including the time while power was off.
If a power failure occurs during a code blue and the code blue timer had been stopped for
viewing, and the code blue switch is still closed when power returns, the code blue timer will start
over from 00:00 or 00:00:00. If the code blue switch is open when power returns, the code blue
time where the code blue timer was stopped prior to the power failure will be shown.
