Synchronized Clock Systems

nullClock synchronization is a problem from computer science and engineering which deals with the idea that internal clocks of several computers may differ. Even when initially set accurately, real clocks will differ after some amount of time due to clock drift, caused by clocks counting time at slightly different rates.

Accurate time is an integral part of a facility or communication system in many industries and applications. Synchronized time is simple and reliable. The GPS satellite system offers an official time signal that is legally traceable. A Spectracom NetClock® time server or master clock tracks up to 12 satellites and offers secure and accurate time to networks and devices including display clocks.

Benefits of synchronized time:

Eliminate adverse time and attendance issues.
• Combine time display, security surveillance, access and alarm controls and computer networks all into one secure system.
• Support insurance and legal documentation with Legally Traceable Time®.
• Synchronize your timing requirements totally behind your IT firewall.
