DuraTime HP (Synchronized, High Precision)
Pros Cons
  • Highest Reliability and Security
  • No need for Wires or Radios
  • Displays the same accurate synchronized time as wired or radio controlled systems, but far easier to install and maintain
  • Each clock stands alone and does not rely on communications wires or a continuously available time source
  • No GPS or other antennas required.
  • Stand-alone clocks are available that support alarm schedules
  • Mains and Low Voltage models available
  • Clocks work everywhere power is available
  • No battery powered models available


PoE (Power over Ethernet) (computer network)

Pros Cons
  • One network cable supplies both power and time data to the clocks
  • Clocks can be reconfigured over the network
  • Password protected web server
  • The time display rules can be either factory or customer configured
  • Provides accurate time only as long as the communications and time source is correct
  • Requires IT people to install and maintain
  • More expensive than most other synchronized clock solutions
  • Requires network switch
  • Master clock optional


DuraTime Wi-Fi

Pros Cons
  • Uses existing Wi-Fi network
  • Very low Wi-Fi bandwidth requirements
  • Battery powered analog clocks operate up to 15 years between battery changes
  • The time display rules can be either factory or customer configured
  • Password protected web server
  • Clocks can be reconfigured over the network
  • Provides accurate time only as long as the communications and time source is correct
  • Requires IT people to install and maintain
  • Master clock optional

 


DuraTime Wireless (2.4 GHz Mesh Radio)

Pros Cons
  • Redundant master clocks are supported for increased system reliability
  • Every clock receives and repeats the sync signals to provide coverage for any size facility
  • Multiple, mesh communications paths provide high reliability
  • Battery powered clocks operate up to 15 years between battery changes
  • Master clock supports alarm schedules
  • Master clocks include Ethernet NTP time source standard
  • Wireless GPS receivers available
  • Radio signal may not penetrate some areas
  • Requires one or more master clocks
  • Distances (300 feet) between clocks may exceed communications path
  • Each separate building usually requires a lower power master clock
  • May require signal repeaters

     

The above synchronized clock solutions can be combined.  For example, PoE clocks could be used for all indoor clocks and HP clocks used outdoors or other areas where the network is unavailable.  Or, wireless clocks could be used above ground and HP clocks used in the basement and other areas where the radio signal is unavailable.
