3. Remote Transmitter is not transmitting:
• If PTT and Data LED's are not flashing:
-If your system has the campus antenna kit, it may have been hit by lightning, even if there are no visible signs of damage to the system equipment. If this is the case, the signal coverage will be greatly reduced and the system clocks may not be able to receive the signals from the transmitter. The lightning arrester (item D shown in "Campus Transmitting Antenna Installation" section) contains a gas discharge tube which is designed to protect the transmitter and attached equipment from lightning damage. There is no visible way to determine if the gas discharge tube is good or not. The only way to check the gast tube is to use an Ohmmeter. If the unit is
bad, the Ohmmeter will show a "Short". If the unit is in good condition, it will show a high resistance. A replacement discharge tube is available from the manufacturer, or the entire lightning arrestor (AT part #H003491) can be replaced by contacting American Time.
4. Not able to connect to Remote Transmitter Connect:
• See Remote Transmitter Connect Troubleshooting section on Page 28.

Troubleshooting Ethernet
Wireless Remote Transmitter Installation Manual
Introduction
If you have trouble connecting the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter via Ethernet, follow these troubleshooting steps:
1.
Check the Ethernet cable connection to the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter. Make sure the patch cable is securely connected to the Ethernet RJ-45 port and that it is not damaged. Have the cable tested or connect a computer or another Ethernet device to this cable to confirm proper connection. The Green LINK/ACT LED on the front of the Remote Transmitter should be flashing when a connection is established.
3. Change the Time Server IP address to a different timeserver among those listed in Appendix A. Perhaps the timeserver that the remote transmitter is attempting to communicate with is down or not responding quickly enough due to network traffic, etc.
4. If using a Static IP address, confirm another device or computer on the network is not using the same Static IP address. The Network Administrator should be able to resolve any conflicts.
5. Ensure that the Network has port 123 open for SNTP or port 13 open for Daytime Protocol.
6. Ping the IP address of the unit from another computer to see if it is responding. Check with your Network Administrator if you do not know how to do this.
7. Test the time server by attempting to get a time stamp from another computer. Check with your Network Administrator if you do not know how to do this.

2. Contact American Time Technical Support at 800-328-8996.
If only SOME clocks are not synchronizing, continue with the trouble shooting steps.
1. If using battery clocks, confirm the battery voltage and polarity:
a. Using a multi-meter, verify the voltage is between 1.45-1.80V at the battery pack. Clocks will not function properly below 1.45V.
b. Polarity of the batteries inside the battery pack after installation.
c. Barrel jack plug of battery pack is connected to the wireless Receiver module.
2. If using AC clocks, confirm the power for the clocks:
a. Barrel connector at the clock is connected and secure.
b. Green LED is lit on the receiver.
3. Confirm signal by resetting clock at location:
Battery Clocks
a. Disconnect barrel jack plug from wireless Receiver module.

c. Watch for LED to flash, will flash red for approximately one minute after power is applied until a valid signal is received. LED will flash green once signal is received.
AC Clocks
a. Press and release the reset button on the back of the receiver with power supplied.
b. Watch for LED to flash, will flash red for approximately one minute after power is applied until a valid signal is received. LED will flash green once signal is received.
4. Clocks that Slow Tick - Normal startup, the clock will tick once every 2-3 seconds. Wait 5 minutes for clock to get signal.
5. Out of Signal Range - If the clock has not received a signal within 5 minutes the clock will run to between 2:00-2:30 and run normally. Move clock within a known signal area and re-try, the clock may be too far from the system controller or in an interference area.
6. Hand Obstructions – If hands are touching each other, the dial or the crystal the clock may become off time. (Reference Instruction Sheet 2080 to rehome and reposition clock hands)
7. Hands Physically Moved - Clock hands cannot be physically moved, they are set at the factory to a “Home” position. If the hands are physically rotated, the home position will be off resulting in the time being off (reference Instruction Sheet 2080 to rehome and reposition clock hands).
8. Hours Off - Remove the label on the movement and verify the rotary switch is set to MT. Switch must be set to MT no matter what time zone the clock is located. nNote: This step may not apply if clocks were received after 4/3/12.
9. Minutes Off - The clock may have been jarred during shipment or dropped resulting in the hands being a few minutes off (reference Instruction Sheet 2080 to rehome and reposition clock hands).
nNote: The clock(s) will only attempt to sync to the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter at approximately 2am/pm and 8am/pm as
displayed on the clock(s) or after the clock(s) are initially powered up.

Appendix
nImportant Notes:
• Setting up your computer to synchronize to the Remote Transmitter via Ethernet does not account for time zone and Daylight Saving Time settings, which must be properly set on the computer (they are not transferred via Ethernet).
• The computer or other device being synchronized to the Remote Transmitter must be on the same network as the Remote Transmitter, or have access to it through a firewall (port 123 open for SNTP and port 13 open for Daytime Protocol).
• If your computer is on a domain, it is set up to get the time from the domain controller and you will not be able to perform the above tasks. Domain controllers using the Windows Time Service can be set up by your network administrator to synchronize directly to time servers on the Internet or to the Remote Transmitter. Contact American Time Technical Support at 800-328-8996 with any questions.

likelihood of interfering with other equipment while increasing the life of the Remote Transmitter.
Troubleshooting
Clock
Installation
Transmitter and
System Setup
If Quiet Mode is enabled (reference page 19), the Remote Transmitter will reduce the number of transmissions after 24 hours of
normal operation. This will allow time to install clocks during the initial system installation. After the initial 24 hours, Quiet Mode
will be designated on the General tab of Remote Transmitter Connect as follows:
Glossary
Appendix
After the initial 24 hours, the remote transmitter will be in Quiet Mode. This mode can be disabled by selecting disable Quiet
Mode through the Configuration Menu of Remote Transmitter Connect. Please reference page 19. This will allow for installing
additional clocks or changing the batteries on clocks. After installing additional clocks, or changing the batteries in the clocks,
enable Quiet Mode through the Configuration Menu of Remote Transmitter Connect. However, it is not necessary to disable Quiet
Mode to correct the clocks. The clocks will correct automatically between the hours of 12:00:00 AM and 6:00:00 AM if they are
off time.

Introduction
Circuit - One of the 6 relay outputs on the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter.
Client - A computer or other networked device, or a software application, that connects to and request information from a server.
Contact Closure Sync - A common method of synchronizing two devices together by means of a 2-wire connection. The output device
provides a synchronization time pulse once per day at a specified time by closing the connection on the 2-wires leading to the input device.
DHCP - The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. A DHCP server can
automatically assign an IP address to the Remote Transmitter when DHCP is enabled.
Digital Clock - A clock that displays time with numerical display (12:00).
Ethernet - A very popular technology for networking computers and other devices. This communication method is used for transmitting and
receiving precise timing signals by the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter.
Transmitter and
System Setup
Daytime Protocol (RFC-867) - A standard, Internet-based timekeeping specification that calls for a timestamp to be sent from a timeserver
as an ASCII character string containing the current date and time. This message is sent from the timeserver as a response to any input on
port 13. The timeserver closes the connection as soon as the timestamp is sent. The SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter is capable of sending
and receiving timestamps via UDP port 13 using this protocol.
Event - Programmed into the SiteSync IQ Remote Transmitter with time and date information, as well as a duration or a start/
stop command. For example, Event 0001 may be programmed to execute every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 am for 3
seconds.
Firewall - A network configuration, usually both hardware and software, that forms a fortress between networked computers within an
organization and those outside the organization. It is commonly used to protect information such as e-mail and data files within a physical
building or organization site.

Server - A host computer or host device on a network, which shares resources and "serves" data to client computers or other servers.
Introduction
Shrink Tubing - Tubing which has been extruded, cross-linked and mechanically expanded which, when reheated, will return to its original
diameter. For this GPS kit, it is used to protect the electrical and communications connections from water, etc. It can be easily installed over
the connectors and will shrink tightly over them after being heated.
SNTP - Simple Network Time Protocol. A less complex form of Network Time Protocol (NTP) commonly used for synchronization of computers
and other devices. In SNTP, the client makes a single timing request to a single server (similar to the Daytime Protocol) and then uses
this information to set its clock. This differs from NTP, which uses multiple servers and averages their results. The SiteSync IQ Remote
Transmitter supports SNTP as both a client and a server.
