Backlight Operation
A switch on the side of the Personal Series LCD Clock sets the backlight to ‘High’, ‘Low’, or ‘Off’. ‘High’ and ‘Low’ select
the intensity of the backlight. When set to ‘High’ or ‘Low’, an optical sensor on the top of the clock samples available light
to determine whether to turn on the backlight.
NOTE: Backlight use significantly affects battery life. To extend battery life, turn the backlight to ‘Off’ or operate the
backlight on ‘Low’

SETUP PROCEDURES
The Personal Series LCD Clock comes fully assembled and is setup with a few easy steps, as described in this section.
Initialize Clock
The Personal Series Clock comes fully assembled and sets automatically with a few easy steps.
Guidelines
l
l
Before initializing a Personal Series Clock, verify the Primex Wireless transmitter is operating properly with
adequate building coverage.
During initialization, the Personal Series Clock receives a signal from the Primex Wireless Transmitter.
Transmitters with external antennas broadcast for only 27 minutes each hour, from 39 minutes before the hour
to 6 minutes after the following hour. If you have a transmitter with an external antenna, follow these
guidelines to efficiently initialize your Personal Series Clocks.
l
l
l
l
Small quantity of Personal Series Clocks: Initialize the clocks during the window in which the
transmitter is broadcasting.
Large quantity of Personal Series Clocks: Power cycle (unplug and plug in) the transmitter,
causing it to broadcast continuously for 8 hours, during which you can initialize the clocks.
Allow sufficient time so the full initialization procedure can be performed without interruption.
While the initialization procedure can be performed in a convenient central location, such as a maintenance
facility, once the Personal Series Clock is hung or placed in its intended location, verify that the clock has
sufficient signal for full operation.
Initializing the Personal Series Clock
1. On the back of the Personal Series Clock, remove the cover on the battery holder.
2. Insert 4 C-cell alkaline batteries into the battery holder.
NOTE: Insert the batteries with the battery ‘+’ end to the ‘+’ end of the battery holder to achieve proper battery
orientation.
l
All elements on the LCD display will light up and the unit will beep once.
l
After four seconds, dashes will appear on the display and remain until the unit’s receiver locates a time signal.
l
The receiver will search until a signal is found, scanning rapidly through 72MHz channels.
l
l
The receiver will look for a signal for 1 minute, and then switch to scanning in 30-minute intervals until
receiving a signal.
Normal operation begins once a signal is received.
Verify Adequate Signal
Before placing the Personal Series Clock at its final installation location, verify the presence of the transmitter signal in that
area.
Primex Wireless
XR Personal Series LCD Clock Installation & User Guide

Guidelines
Ensure that the system transmitter is broadcasting during the time you are verifying the signal. Transmitters with external
antennas broadcast for only 27 minutes each hour, from 39 minutes before the hour to 6 minutes after the following hour.
If you have a transmitter with an external antenna, be sure to perform this procedure during this time. Alternatively, you
can power cycle the transmitter, causing it to broadcast continuously for 8 hours while you complete this procedure.
Verifying Adequate Signal
1. Hold the clock near the location where you plan to hang or display it.
2. Push and IMMEDIATELY release the button located on the back of the clock. The clock will beep.
The clock will scan all channels looking for a transmitter signal. Once the clock finds a channel with a transmitter signal, a
series of beeps will sound from the clock. The clock will beep each time a valid time signal is received, which should be
once per second. The beeping will continue for one minute. If the clock is in a marginal signal area, it will beep once every
few seconds. No beeping means no signal is received. The Personal Series Clock will work in marginal signal areas but may
have a slightly reduced battery life.
HANG A PERSONAL SERIES LCD CLOCK
NOTE: The Personal Series LCD Clock is for indoor use only.
Guidelines
Depending on your security needs, you can choose among several options for hanging a Personal Series Clock.
l
l
Clock Lock mount: The most secure method uses the Clock Lock feature, which is a specially designed hanger
at the top center of the clock. The Clock Lock is designed to prevent accidents if the clock is bumped, and it
may reduce theft by requiring a particular combination of moves to remove the clock.
Standard mount: To avoid the Clock Lock feature altogether, use a finishing nail with no head angled at 45
degrees into the wall in place of headed screws and anchors. The clock will then mount and can be removed
like a standard clock.
Use the screw and anchor provided with the clock for installation. If you choose not to use the provided screw and
anchor, you can substitute a #4 screw. The screw must protrude from the wall .1 in. (.25cm).
TABLETOP USE OF THE PERSONAL SERIES CLOCK
The Personal Series Clock has an easel stand on the back of the clock, To place the clock on a table or desk, simply unfold
both sides of the easel stand.

REPLACE BATTERIES - PERSONAL SERIES CLOCK
The Personal Series Clock notifies the user when the batteries need to be changed by showing the “Low Battery” symbol on the
clock display.
Battery Use Recommendation
l
Use only high quality Alkaline batteries
l
Always use fresh, superior-quality batteries, with an expiration date at least five years past the installation date.
l
Batteries should be the same type and date code.
l
The use of heavy duty and zinc carbon batteries is not recommended, as they will not last as long as high-quality
name-brand alkaline batteries.
WARNING: Do Not Use Lithium or Rechargeable Cells.
Complete the steps below to replace the clock batteries.
1. Remove the clock from its location to access the back of the clock.
NOTE: If the clock is mounted using the Clock Lock feature a specific movement is required to remove the clock from its
mount location. For additional information, see "Remove Personal Series Clock from Clock Lock Mount" located on
page 14.
2. Remove the battery holder cover.
3. Remove the old batteries and wait 10 seconds.
4. Insert four alkaline C-cell batteries.
5. Replace the battery holder cover.
When the batteries are in place, the Personal Series Clock will begin its initialization sequence. All elements on the LCD display
will light up and the unit will beep once. After four seconds, dashes will appear on the display and remain until the unit’s
receiver locates a channel signal. The receiver will search until a signal is found, scanning rapidly through 72MHz channels. The
receiver will look for a time signal for 1 minute, and then switch to scanning in 30- minute intervals until receiving a signal.
Normal operation begins once a signal is received.
