The TCC-14 Talking
Clock/Calendar from OMNICRON Electronics provides a truly practical way to log the time of
day and date on magnetic tape. When used with an OMNICRON voice logging recorder, you will
have documentation of exactly when each conversation was recorded. The recorded
announcements of the time and date not only verify when conversations are recorded, they
permit you to easily locate previously recorded conversations.
The TCC-14 was designed for
use in emergency dispatch centers where it is vital that all telephone and two-way radio
conversations be documented. You must know exactly what is said, who says it, and when.
With the Talking Clock/Calendar connected to your logging recorder, not only will you have
this information, you will be able to prove it.
The TCC-14 is also ideal for use in other applications
requiring accurate and reliable announcements of the time or time and date, e.g., Dial-up
Telephone Time Services, Telephone Answering Machines, Radio Telephone and Paging
Services, Automated Radio Stations, Railroad Hot-box Reporting Systems, Government and
Industrial Radio Services, Telephone Banking Services, Brokerage Houses, Order Taking
Departments, Training, Supervisory Monitoring of telephone conversations, Documentation of
two-way radio interference, etc. Verbal announcements are a sensible and easily
under-stood way to record time and date information. No special decoding circuitry is
needed when you play back your tapes. As with all Omnicron products, the TCC-14 Time
Source does not have any problems with the year 2000.
The vocabulary of the clock
is produced electronically by a solid-state microprocessor-controlled speech synthesizer.
Its distinctive male voice is clear and unambiguous: "FOUR FIFTY THREE P.M.
SEPTEMBER TWELVE, NINE EIGHT" etc. Internal option switches allow
you to customize the announcements to meet your special needs, i.e., select 12 or 24 hour
time format, insert a beep prior to each announcement, delete the date announcement,
select seconds to be announced with the time, select on demand or continuously repeating
announcements, select the year to be announced after date, etc.
If your recorders have a
separate channel dedicated to time documentation, such as the Omnicron recorders with the
"CT" (Clock Track) option, only one TCC-14 set to continuously repeat the time
would be required for up to 50 recorders in the same location. If your application
requires a single announcement of the time to be recorded on the same channel as the
conversation, such as with a modified answering machine where the time will be announced
immediately after each recording, a separate clock will be required for each recorder and
factory installed option "TCC-A" will be required.
With Omnicron recorders, you
simply connect the cable supplied with your recorder to the clock and plug the other end
of the cable into the "CLOCK" jack on the recorder. No special tools or skills
are required. If the clock is to be connected to other makes of logging recorders or with
a telephone answering machine, installation and any modifications required would be
arranged through the supplier of your ancillary equipment.

TCC-A: Factory installed circuitry to provide an optically isolated
sensing circuit (external 5-15v AC/DC triggers an announcement when the voltage drops),
and DPDT relay which is activated when the clock is talking. This option is required if
the clock is used in applications which require a switched on-demand time announcement.
TCC-B: Factory installed rechargeable battery and charging
circuitry which automatically takes over during external power loss and powers all clock
functions for up to 4 hours. This option keeps the clock talking during short power
TCC-C: Factory installed circuitry provides adjustable
announcement repeat rate between ten and forty seconds. Used with multi-channel digital
logging recorders to minimize recording time. It backs up the digital time, and permits
you to easily copy recordings with the time. Click here for
