To take opto pulses from a 1/1 seconds Gents master clock without any burden imposed upon the pendulum itself.
These pulses can be used to trigger an amplifier to drive one seconds slave or secondary clocks with single or alternating polarity.
Details of the amplifier / driver will be in part 2 in next weeks video.
The driver circuit I have tested already extensively on my tacho seconds system over the last 6 years.
These amplified pulses can be used to drive ± 24 Volts 7 mA seconds slave clocks, like CTW, Favag and T&N and 3.5 ohm 220 mA Gents slave clocks designed for alternating polarity with appropiate series resistors.
