    Default International Time Recording slave clock

    I have an ITR weight-driven master clock. the weights are raised by an electric motor. I recently acquired an ITR slave clock and would like to connect the two. The master clock shows model 26 4 with a serial number of 313655 (the 1 is upside down). The slave clock has a patent date of July 22, 1919. On the top of the master clock are three terminals to go to the slave clock. By the terminals are letter notations O E C. The slave clock has three wires also. My question is (assuming the master clock sends the appropriate impulses): what is the connecting sequence of the three terminals to the three wires on the slave clock? I am hesitant to use trial and error in case I might damage the slave clock (assuming that it too works). Thanks for your help.

    Sam and all. There's quite a few variables that affect how and which ITR slave dial is connected to your older master clock.

    The motor driving the winding gears is most likely a GE motor designed for 110 volts AC/DC and one would logically assume you have the clock connected to a 120 volt AC 60 Hz utility electrical outlet. There must exist, in addition to the power to wind the weights, a nominal 24 volts DC to operate any attached slave dials. The 24 volts DC source may be internal to the master clock or it may be an external source.

    Many ITR slave clocks require 24 volts DC but some were supplied to operate in a series loop configuration of six or eight slave clocks. Singly, these would need a source voltage much less than 24 VDC.

    Additionally, many ITR and IBM slave clocks as well as the master clocks were supplied with their "hourly correction feature" these generally require three wires between the master and slave to affect the hourly correction feature. However, master and slave clocks with the hourly correction feature will function in the simple non-correction mode using only two wires.

    We would need more specific information about both your master and slave clocks before providing guidance specific to your needs.

    Data and or photos of the insides and top of your master clock and the back side of your slave clock will help provide more specifics.

    You might find something also helpful on my webspace:

    Please click on the IBM items. These are copies of factory instructions for various ITR-IBM-Simplex clpocks.
