The day is divided into 1016 (1610) hexadecimal hours, each hour into 10016 (25610) hexadecimal minutes, and each minute into 1016 (1610) hexadecimal seconds.
This time format was proposed by the Swedish-American engineer John W. Nystrom in 1863 as part of his tonal system.
A day is unity, or 1, and any fraction thereof can be shown with digits to the right of the hexadecimal separator. So the day begins at midnight with .0000 and one hexadecimal second after midnight is .0001. Noon is .8000 (one half), one hexadecimal second before was .7FFF and one hexadecimal second before next midnight will be .FFFF.
Intuitor-hextime may also be formatted with an underscore separating hexadecimal hours, minutes and seconds. For example:
|Hex||Hex (Boardman)||ISO 8601||Comment|
|.1000||1_00_0||01:30:00||1.5:24 = 1:16 = 0.1|
|.8000||8_00_0||12:00:00||12:24 = 8:16 = 0.8|
|.F000||F_00_0||22:30:00||22.5:24 = 15:16 = 0.F|
|1 day||=||10000||=||65536||=||24 h|
|1 hexadecimal hour||=||1000||=||4096||=||1 h 30 min|
|1 hexadecimal maxime||=||100||=||256||=||5 min 37.5 s|
|1 hexadecimal minute||=||10||=||16||=||21.09375 s|
|1 hexadecimal second||=||1||=||1||=||1.318359375 s|
|1 second||=||0.C22E4||=||0.75851||=||1 s|
