|Setting up your new Powers of 2® XLD clock:
Fig. 1a (above): Plug the connector at the end of the power unit cord into the socket in the hole in the bottom of the clock. Route the cord into the channel provided.
Place the clock on the wall using the attachment keyholes on the rear of the clock. For table top display, stand the clock on a horizontal surface as follows:
(a) Remove the legs from their stowed positions by pulling gently on the ends at the bottom of the clock. See Fig. 2a (below).
(b) Turn each leg upside down so that the ears on the legs can be inserted into one of the 4 slots near the top of the channel in which it was stowed (see Fig. 2b)
(c) Insert the ears on each leg FULLY into corresponding slots. If this does not give the desired tilt to the clock, try a different slot pair.
Now, plug the power unit into an electrical outlet that matches the adapter that came with your unit (read the label on the adapter). Anelace offers three versions: a 120V / 60 Hz outlet model for the normal U.S. power line, and two 220-240V / 50 Hz versions for most other places in the world. A row of lights will scan up and down on the face of the clock to indicate that the clock has been powered on, but that the time has not yet been set. This scan will exercise all 20 lights.
WARNING: Be sure that the line voltage is correct for your adapter.
Setting the time (see Fig. 1b).
- Hours: To set hours, push and release the button marked H on the rear of the clock to advance the hours by one unit. Hold the H button down to cycle the hours automatically.
- Minutes: To set minutes, use the above procedure, except push the button marked M.
- Seconds: To reset the seconds counter to zero, push the H and the M buttons at the same time. Release them both to allow the seconds to advance.
- 24 hour clock: The clock offers 12 hour (default) and 24 hour - e.g. 11PM = 23:00:00 - display modes. To alternate between the two modes: slide the switch marked "12/24" between the two positions (see Fig. 1c)
- Binary Mode: The clock offers both BCD (default) and true binary display. In true binary mode, the bottom row of lights represents seconds, the second row up from the bottom
represents minutes and the next row up represents hours (the top row is not used). Fig. 6 demonstrates what the clock will look like at 10:48:36 in "true" binary.
To select between the two modes: slide the switch marked "BCD/BIN" between the two positions (see Fig. 1d).
- DIM: There are 3 brightness settings for the LEDs. To cycle through the settings, press the DIM button (see Fig. 1e).
- Battery Backup: In case of power loss, the display will extinguish. To have the clock continue to maintain the time, install 3 "AA" size batteries as shown in Fig. 1f.
|To Clean the faceplate:|
|1) Use a microfiber towel [the type typically used for car polishing - not terrycloth towels].
2) Spray the towel to a wet condition with a quality glass cleaner.
3) Rub hard on marked areas, then do a final wipe in one direction (e.g. left to right) over the whole face.
4) When the face is dry (a few minutes), inspect for missed areas, clean again if necessary.
5) When the face is clean and dry, brush off any excess lint with a dry delinted microfiber towel.
Note: sometimes spots on the clock face are just moisture absorbed into the coating. Believe it or not, you can blow hot air from a hair dryer onto the faceplate to make it look fresh!
