the timekeeping mechanisms of the clock, leaving the master pendulum virtually free of external disturbances. (1) Of the Shortt Clocks produced by the Synchronome Company, 7 clocks were shipped to Russia for use in various scientific and astronomical observatories. Shortt No. 47 . In telecommunication and horology, a slave clock is a clock that depends for its accuracy on another clock, a master modern clocks are synchronized, either through the Internet or by radio time signals, to a worldwide time standard called Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) based on a network of master atomic clocks in many countries. For scientific purposes, precision clocks can be.

The most accurate pendulum clock was the Shortt-Synchronome clock, a complicated electromechanical clock with two pendulums developed in by W.H. Shortt and Frank Hope-Jones, which was accurate to better than one second per year. A slave pendulum in a separate clock was linked by an electric circuit and electromagnets to a master pendulum. In order to keep the Synchronome as close as possible to 'right time' I make frequent adjustments to the weights on the tray as required (changes are usually mg or mg up or down). This explains why the clock has kept closer to 'time' than it is capable of on its own other than by luck over a long period.

Voltmeter Clock: This clock tells the time - hours, mins, and seconds using 3 analogue voltmeters. When complete turn the scale adjust switch off to return to normal clock mode, at this time the settings will be saved to non-volatile memory. I used to work on Gent/Synchronome master clocks when I worked in Telephone Exchanges.

Synchronome recommended 4 volts for their master clock with its single built-in slave dial, although I have had them running on 3 volts and latching perfectly each time. Synchronome advised that any further slave dials that were added need the addition of one volt for every three ohms of.

The Synchronome Master Clock Adjustments and Setting to work by A. Mitchell The erection and maintenance instructions originally supplied with Synchronome master clocks were completely adequate at the time of issue when a new clock was being installed which had been sent out from the factory fully adjusted.

Electrical Horology Group, The Synchronome Master Clock: Adjustments and Setting to Work, This illustrated document, by Arthur Mitchell, is one of 94 Technical Papers so far published by the AHS’s Electrical Horology Group, one of its three specialist groups.

EHG members have full digital access to all Technical Papers. Synchronome Master Clock for Power Stations The clever design of these models ensures that the disturbance to the pendulum is kept to an absolute minimum when making the mercury switch tilt.

The Microset timer is a very good tool for spot on adjustment, and allows you to get master clocks working to an accuracy that can never be achieved by just listening to the time pips on the radio.

Original Synchronome Literature and Instructions. Synchronome Master Clock Set Up Synchronome There is an active group on Frank Hope-Jones There are several others, just use the search engine of choice.

The definitive work on Synchronomes is "Synchronome, Masters of Electrical Timekeeping" by the sadly now departed Robert H A Miles. Synchronome Master Clock The effect on the timekeeping of opening and closing the door.

This will only apply to a good quality precision timepiece or clock, that. Synchronome Slave Unit. This is the operating mechanism from a slave clock manufactured by Synchronome.

Its principle of operation is basically the same as that of a Gent unit: see here. The main differences in design are that the Synchronome is easier to adjust as the backstops are all screws.

I think I'm intrigued by the concept of a relatively quiet master clock. Really I should clear my to-do list and make an effort to finish the 2 gravity-escapement regulators I've been promising my children. I've set up the Synchronome and slave in my workshop and will try to change to the 9V/resistor set-up I've described sometime this weekend.

Synchronome The floorstanding oak case with glazed sides and hinged door and sliding doors to the base revealing small storage space for the cloth covered battery, fitted with a silvered Synchronome slave dial, the movement mounted to a painted cast iron plate with separate brass suspension over the two wheel movement with deadbeat escapement driven by a weighted arm re-cocked every thirty.

I recently purchased an old school clock from a show but didn't realize it is suppose to be hooked up with a master clock to run properly. When plugged in the clock works but there is no way to adjust the time on it. There is a single extra wire which I am under the impression is to go to the Master clock to adjust the time.

Other than those, the build went well, it takes a fair amount of hand adjustment to set the clock up to allow it to run easily, as the adjustment of the various parts to work together is critical.

I used the CES backplate and Hope-Jones book "Electric Clocks and How To Make Them" to verify the magazine dimensions. THE SYNCHRONOME MASTER CLOCK FOR OPERATING HALF MINUTE IMPULSE DIALS ONLY The Master Clock is fitted in a polished hardwood case, 50 inches long, 10 ’/f’ wide and 6 inches deep; it is fitted with a 7” diameter half minute impulse dial having minute and hour hands.

The pendulum movement consists of a substantial baseplate on which the pendulum. EHG Technical Papers. The Electrical Horology Group of the AHS has published a number of technical papers over the years, covering a wide range of electrical horology topics. These papers are available to members of the society on request only.

The complete list of such papers shown below indicates the depth and breadth of information available to members. Howdy, I'm building a variant of a Shortt-Synchronome clock, here's Sync parts that I've done so far, with the clockback on my Gorton 8d milling machine Its the first clock I've ever built.

I've been using the Engineering in Miniature build series by Isaacs, along with the Hope-Jones DIY article, and feeding in some of the info from "Accurate Clock Pendulums" by Matthys, and using zuckerman.

Two clocks in a timber case. Both are electric, one is powered by the main pendulum mechanism, the other is a self contained electric clock.

The main mechanism is of the gravity arm and roller type, which sends an impulse to the slave clocks every 30 seconds. The This Synchronome Frequency Checking Master Clock was used at the Ballarat Power. Bürk Master Clock. Hauptuhr Made in Germany Year of Manuf. ± Type HU ¾ seconds movement.

Accuracy ± seconds / day Pendulum Invar steel. Shortt clocks kept time with two pendulums, a master pendulum swinging in a vacuum tank and a slave pendulum in a separate clock, which was synchronized to the master by an electric circuit and electromagnets.

The slave pendulum was attached to the timekeeping mechanisms of the clock, leaving the master pendulum virtually free of external disturbances. Adjustment The swing of the pendulum is regulated by raising or lowering the brass-encased lead bob by means of the rating nut W.

The clock will gain if the bob is raised, or lose if it is lowered. It is possible to adjust the Clock No, 36 to keep G.M.T. to an accuracy of. The Synchronome was ideal for factories, schools and lunatic asylums for setting a local coherent time all around the premises, so there was a slave clock in.

The slave clock could just be one large clock dial, or set of four dials, in a tower. In this situation it is convenient to have the master clock down at ground level so that adjustments to the time can be made easily.

In a factory or large public building there could be hundreds of dials in offices all over the site.Many pictures, diagrams and descriptions of various types of Pulsynetic master clocks and many other horological devices To enlarge PICTURES, click on them.

Crook, himself,Since GPS is THE standard for time transfer most likely they will become the master clocks and not the collection of atomic clocks now used. This plot showing the atmospheric pressure and running rate of a Synchronome clock clearly shows that the clock runs fast.
