Carillions

A carillon is composed of an assembly of fine-tuned bells, having a special construction that plays musical notes so that you have the possibility to interpret musical tracks. The fine-tuning of the bells is made with a precision of +/- sixteenths of a semitone. The carillon is operated by a central unit named programming system “Apollo II” in whose memory are storeda multitude of melodies while allowing to record other melodies as well with the help of an electronic pipe organ. 

The bells are equipped with electromagnetic hammers which are controlled with the help of the system mentioned above, which is piloted via GPS, activated with the help of a personal mobile telephone. At the same time, the carillon accompanies successfully the church clock, which can be programmed with the same programming system which is connected via satellite to an atomic clock near Frankfurt, with a deviation of one second every 1 million years and the programme is re-set every 24 hours.

In the middle of September 2015 Blotor Bells Foundry has built a 37- little bells installation in Baia Mare (Cetatii Square Market) – known by the name of carillon. The installation, displayed in a public place, can be controlled from distance through a synthesizer with wireless transmission:
