This model is a reproduction of a mobile cubic Quadrants, which is dated to 1736, and David Beringer from Augsburg (Germany) is attributed. It is equipped with a articulated rod that allows to incline the cube in the north and south direction, and with a lot on the east side, which moves on a graduated scale, which allows to adapt the instrument to the latitude of the location at which we are located . It is a universal quadrant.
You have to support the base on a flat plane and then rotate it to the left or right until the Nort side is positzioniert on the same plane as the compass (the arrow tip must correspond to the compass rose). Next, we move the cube until the plumb coincides with the latitude of the location. The time of the sun is indicated by the different gnomons (triangles shadow caster), depending on when we read them.
