Re: Solari Flip Clock Driver

As you are obviously an electric clock enthusiast, maybe the best solution is to buy a T&N master clock for your Solari clock. The T&N system generates 24vdc in alternate polatarity - made for the job.
Note that not all Solari clocks are the same - I have one which uses unique polarity and is running on my house system driven by a Gent "Thornbridge" clock. I have also seen the alternate polarity ones and it's only the motor which is different.
Good luck and happy clunking,

My research on my new, very old Solari clock indicates it is fed with a bipolar 24V impulse. Not compatible with Synchronome slave clock pulses.
I am interested in your driver. How does it work? Is it programmable?

On my driver I have buttons that advance or lose 1sec,1min and 1 hr. Makes adjustment and keeping track of DST much easier. With 2 slaves in series, it's a pain if they don't track. The gents relies on gravity for one of the wheel panels so they both need to be vertical when testing.
