Binary Clock 24 Hour Mode

I’m setting my clock again after today’s blackout. I’m going to try 24 hour mode this time.

How to use 24 hour mode:
There is an extra LED in the far left column (10s of hours) so that those that want to operate the clock in 24 hour mode (like “military time”) and do so. In this mode, 2:00 PM is displayed as 14:00 hours. When the time reaches 20:00 (8 PM), the extra LED in the left column will light.

You can set the clock to operate in 24 hour mode by doing the following:

1) Unplug the adapter from the wall.
2) Wait about 10 seconds for the unit to reset internally.
3) Hold the “H” button (the hours time set button on the back of the clock) in when
applying AC power to the clock.
4) Set the clock and see if you are in 24 hour mode.

    Thanks a bunch. Couldn’t figure it out.

  2. Tom Cutter says:

    Thank you SO MUCH for your instructions on adjusting the mode of the clock such that it displays military time. I’ve been in the army for 36 years and, in all this time, haven’t ever had a binary clock that can do military time. This is wonderful and very much uplifting the spirits of the boys over here in Iraq with me.

    We all thank you.

    God bless America

    Thanks for the info, had to reset my binary clock on campus (i.e. far away from the manual).

    One of the coolest clocks I’ve ever acquired. :)

    Thanks man.

    I was almost about to apply a voltage transformer to see if the little light would go on based on the hertz.
    This was annoying for about three months since I received the damn gift.

    God bless you and God Bless America!
    Now I can start eating again!

    (And, if you can believe it, it’s me again two years later using this page to figure it out again. At least this time I also learned how to reset the seconds so it’s accurate down to that!)

    Nothing ever dies on the web. Almost six years after your post I’m using it to set my clock 24 hour mode. Thanks.

    Ditto to above.

    Love this fact, and thank you.

    Although, I wish Rachel had posted HOW she could reset seconds on the thing back last year…

    Since these comments are immortal, what the heck…

    Intertree, you reset the seconds by pushing the hour & minute buttons at the same time.

  9. Billiam says:

    Thank you for the directions. My binary clock is now happily running on military time.

  10. Aaron says:

    Thanks again!
    I don’t ever remember seeing how to set it in the manual (which i lost years ago anyway).

  11. Pat says:

    I lost my manual, how do you set this clock to true binary?

  12. InterClaw says:

    I had thrown away the manual thinking I’d remember that. Thanks! :)
