DuraTime Wirelessly Synchronize Clocks Across the Entire Campus
In the 21st century, accurate clocks are more important than ever. Inaccurate clocks can have a negative impact on the overall image of the university. Students may be late for class due to inaccurate university time displays. This problem is compounded when time displays differ between buildings on campus. Older, wired clock systems can be expensive and difficult to maintain over the entire campus.
The DuraTime Synchronized Clock System first obtains accurate time from the world time standard (atomic clock). The time may be obtained using the integrated network time receiver (NTP), or from an optional GPS time receiver. Both methods may be used simultaneously, providing a redundant time acquisition system. The correct time is then sent over a secure, encrypted, multi-path wireless network to all clocks throughout the facility or campus. Both digital and analog clocks are available in a wide variety of styles and models. Battery powered analog clocks are available that operate up to five years between battery changes, and do not require any wiring.
The DuraTime system allows multiple, simultaneous master clocks for the highest reliability.
In addition to synchronized time, BRG offers a Wireless Emergency Mass Notification System that utilizes the DuraTime wireless network to send emergency announcements to wireless speakers and wireless moving message displays.
