Longer Guide

Each Clock has a Master and Slave Display. The Master Clock has an accurate ‘Real Time Clock’ and will display real time.  By default the Pre Start is set to -4. The displays are Red LEDs showing Hours Minutes and Seconds e.g. 12.35.22

The Master clock will give a warning ‘beep’ and a count down ‘beep’ to each minute when a start BEEP will sound.

The clocks are probably best placed off the ground on a small table or stand. Place the Master Clock near to the start line where it can be seen by starters and Start officials.

Place the Slave Clock by the Pre start where it can be seen by waiting competitors and Pre Start officials.  T

Following a self test display the start and pre start times will show.

The displays have rechargeable  batteries which should last for 7 hours use. The batteries will need to be recharged before the next use. The charger fits to the signal plug. To charge the batteries place the switch in the OFF position.

Using configuration software the Pre Start delay can be adjusted to Zero. The buzzer can be turned off. In this state both displays will show race time and the displays can be set up at the finish so finishers can see their finish time.

The clock can be adjusted for Summer Time (DST) or different Time Zones.
