MODEL 811 OPERATION
Davtron attaches a welded tab-type battery to the 811 clock before it leaves the factory. All three functions
of the clock are activated and working. At this time, Davtron set the clock function to accurate time (W.W.V.).
The Clock, the Flight Time, and the Elapse Time will work approximately two years without any additional
power. No aircraft keep-alive voltage necessary. Aircraft power is required to light the display only.
DISPLAY SELECT
The switch marked Time/F.T./E.T. is a three position switch that selects the function to be displayed. All three
functions operate normally no matter what function has been selected for display.
TIME
When the time function is selected, the proper time will read in hours, minutes, and seconds. The time channel
may be set to local time or G.M.T. time.
FLIGHT TIME RECORDER
When the Flight Time channel is selected, the actual time in flight will be displayed in hours, minutes, and
seconds. The Flight Time channel is controlled by applying a voltage to the Blue Control Lead of the clock.
This is recommended to be operated from an air switch. When the aircraft starts its take-off run and the
airswitch closed, the Flight Time recorder will start to run, recording Flight Time. Any time during flight the
pilot may check total time in flight. When the aircraft has landed, the pilot can record total Flight Time. The
Flight Time can be zeroed only by having aircraft power off and moving the switch on the front panel to the
zero position. The pilot can have total flight time on a trip with a number of stops if he avoids returning the
Flight Time recorder to zero. The Flight Time recorder will total time up to 24 hours. Normally it is
recommended that the Flight Time recorder be zeroed on the pre-startup checklist of the aircraft.
ELAPSED TIME METER
When the Elapsed Time channel is selected the Elapsed Time meter will read in hours, minutes, and seconds.
This recorder is fully controlled by the pilot from the front panel. It may be started, stopped and returned to
zero for elapsed time, approach time, etc. It continues to operate when aircraft power is off. Totals time up
to 24 hours.
DIM POSITION FOR DISPLAY
For night operation a Dim position is provided. Normal position is B or bright.
SETTING TO ACCURATE TIME
Davtron set the clock for the proper time zone when it leaves the factory. Although the clock is easily changed
in one hour increments with the one hour up date switch, this does not effect minutes or seconds.
The time accuracy should be adjusted only when an accurate time check has been made and an error noted.

The switch marked Set if for minor time corrections. Holding this switch in the set up position runs the clock
at a rate of one second fast for every second it is held. In the set down position, the clock is stopped or loses
one second for every second held. For example, if a ten second error is noted in the clock and the clock is ten
seconds fast, hold the Set position switch in the set down position for 10 seconds. If the clock is ten seconds
slow, hold the Set switch in the set up position for ten seconds. During the time the clock is being set up or
down, the Elapse Time and Flight Time still continue to operate normally. The pilot may use the Elapsed Time
meter to time the holding of the Set switch. The Set switch is a momentary switch and automatically returns to
the center position.
This switch makes minor time corrections
This switch sets Bright/Dim, and makes one hour
changes
1. Position #1 (B) is the Bright position of the display for daytime use.
2. Position #2 (Dim) is for night time use
3. Position #3 (1 hr. up) is a momentary position and sets the clock 1 hour
ahead for every time the switch is moved to this position and released.

3. Position #3(D) is a momentary position and sets
the clock one second down for every second held.
Automatically returns to position #2 when released.

This switch selects which channel is to be
displayed
1. Position # 1 (Time) selects real time. This channel
may be set to G.M.T. time or local time. Reads in
hours, minutes and seconds.
2. Position #2 (F.T.) selects Flight Time, reads in hours,
minutes and seconds of actual flight.
3. Position #3 (E.T.) selects Elapsed Time, reads in
hours, minutes and seconds.
This switch controls the Elapsed Time meter
1. Position #1 (Zero) is a momentary position and sets the Elapsed
Time meter to zero. The switch returns to position #2 when
released.
NOTE: Position #1 will zero Flight Time only if power to the clock is
off.
2. Position #2 (Stop) will stop the Elapsed Time meter.
3. Position #3 (Run) starts the Elapsed Time meter.
