The operating system consists of three components.
1. Pendulum catcher
The pendulum catcher F holds the pendulum A in its outermost position by means of the wire AF. At the same time, in the column F (indirect via the wire AF) the swing of the pendulum A is measured and the number of swings is counted.
The winder J pulls the weights E and D up by means of the lines BJ and CJ. These are attached to the ropes BE and CD and wound around the barrels B and C in the movement itself.
The computer H controls, checks, and registers the operation of the pendulum catcher F and the winder J. The electronic clock in the computer is calibrated based on absolute time using the radio signal DCF-77.
the purpose of simplicity, the example involves a movement with striking
work that is wound every hour and that has a seconds pendulum. This
means that one beat equals one second, and after 3600 beats the minute
hand will have made one full revolution.
