Data can be logged over extended periods

Features include:

  • Paper tape watch timing machine emulation with numeric and disk type readout.

  • Average rate calculation using least-squares fit for improved consistency, especially with clocks

  • Any beat rate from 1 tick per 30s (Atmos) to 400 cycles per second (tuning fork).

  • Amplitude measurement of lever and co-axial escapement; lift angle 20° to 120°.

  • High resolution beat error measurement.

  • Clear and detailed waveform display for fault diagnosis.

  • Trace magnification 1, 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50.

  • 'Paper' feed rate x 10, 5, 2, 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/15, 1/20, 1/30, 1/50, or 1/100.

  • 'Tape' length of several metres can be 'pulled back' to examine earlier results.

  • Positional results annotated onto tape, analysed and recorded to QC file.

  • Long term graphical output with vernier readout and selective zoom.

  • Graphs of rate, amplitude, deviation and beat error with variable smoothing.

  • Fourier analysis of cyclical variations

  • Allen deviation for assessment of stability

  • Escape wheel eccentricity histogram
