CLASS B (SYNCHRONOUS) CLOCKS

One of the standard synchronous clocks at present used by the PO. The movements are described in B 1351 and are both designed solely for use in the public offices of Post Offices.

Synchronous clocks are suitable for use only in areas where the mains supply is reliable. The basis for provision is given in B3001. The types used in the PO are all non self-starting for use on a supply of 200-250 volts ac, single phase, 50 Hz, with a frequency which is time controlled. They should not be installed where time keeping is of vital importance.

This is one of the standard half minute pulse clocks at present used by the PO. The movements are described in B 1311.

CLOCKS No's. 50A and 52A
Clock No. 50A is a double dial, and No. 52A a single dial, clock designed solely for use in the public offices of Post Offices. Both clocks are suitable for window mounting by means of horizontal or vertical suspensions (Drgs P/T 103 and P/T 104) which are special wrought iron brackets, designed to harmonize with the interior of the public offices. The brackets should be obtained locally and painted to match the colour scheme. Clock No. 52A is also suitable for wall mounting in public offices. Clocks No's 52A and No. 50A are now superseded by Clocks No. 76A (single dial) and 82A (double dial) respectively.
