What We Do Not Make

Alarm clock

This is the most famous digital clock of all, a Panasonic tabletop model from the movie, “Groundhog Day,” starring Bill Murray as the hapless weatherman who kept waking up on the same day. Masterclock does not make this sort of digital clock, one that gets synced by the AC frequency coming out of the wall socket. No, our clocks are typically referenced to GPS satellites for the ultimate in sync and precision.

If you’re looking for a cute little digital clock for your night stand,
you may have come to the wrong place — but stick around, we’ll take you to the next level in time keeping.

Masterclock Inc. does not make bedside alarm clocks, wristwatches or any other such personal time-keeping devices. Sorry.

Howerver, we DO make digital clocks of professional quality. Ours are referenced to GPS satellites.In this modern world, some organizations need that level of professional precision and synchronization in their time keeping instruments.

A GPS satellite
Every GPS satellite carries an atomic clock that helps regulate time for the entire world. Our clocks and devices listen for these signals with special antennas to provide you with the most precise time available for digital clocks and other devices.

We also make traditional analog clocks, the kind you remember in high school hanging on the wall behind the teacher. But here again, ours are of professional quality. They, too, are linked to atomic clocks aboard GPS satellites. They can also be controlled, as a group or individually, from the comfort of an office computer, rather than having to get out and attend to each one individually, particularly irksome during those twice-a-year trips to reset Daylight Saving(s) Time.

Our other time keeping systems are synchronized to precision Time Codes, like IRIG (for the military) and SMPTE (for the broadcast and movie-making industries).

Some of our devices translate one type of signal  to another. Often several devices are set in series between the satellite receiver and the display units. These distribute and amplify Time Code to any number of clocks, all controlled by a central software application so one person at a keyboard can ‘see’ on screen what each clock is doing without having to actually go out and examine each one.That is indeed a far cry from a nightstand alarm clock.

Time is important. That’s why we’re in this business.

This blog is brought to you by Masterclock, Inc. We design, build and sell a large catalog of professional-quality digital and analog clocks, master clocks, network clocks, time code clocks, time code generators and other synchronized time devices for precise applications at an affordable price.

If you have any questions about time, GPS, digital clocks or any other subject you’d like to know more about, sent them to us. We’ll be happy to reply directly.
