The LX-5212 is a 12" Digital / Analog Clock designed to read and display time as received from most any source of time code. Alternatively, the clock may be manually set and operated in stand-alone mode. Six 1" high LEDs display hours, minutes and seconds. Simultaneously, 60 discrete LEDs simulate the "analog" sweep of the Second Hand. Twelve other discrete LEDs, located around the dial at 5-second increments, stay lit continuously and serve as reference indicators. Three Brightness controls allow the intensity of the three "sets" of LEDs to be set independently. The unit accepts several types of input data: SMPTE/EBU time code, IRIG-B time code, ESE Time CodeT (or ESE Timer CodeT - the right hand picture above shows a Countdown Timer display) or ASCII time code. If the time code source should fail, the decimal point located between hours and ten's of minutes flashes to alert you of the failure, and the clock will continue to keep time using its internal crystal. The LED Second Hand may be configured in any one of three modes (Accumulate, Eliminate and Single) and is switchable on-the-fly. If receiving 24 hour format time code (or 12 hour format with an AM/PM bit), the unit may be configured for 12 or 24 hour format. The LX-5212 also provides a Time-Zone offset feature that adds a selected number of hours to the incoming time code value. Optional rack-mounting side flanges may also be specified. An external UL-approved wall-mount transformer is also available; when this option is ordered, the usual AC line & internal transformer are eliminated. 110-120 VAC operation is standard (220-240 VAC optional).
