TIME and TIMING are vital variables in improving productivity and optimizing the use of various resources to achieve maximum efficiency in any process. Naturally, it becomes exceedingly significant that all businesses/business verticals in a company have an accurate, unique, and standard reference of time across all functional processes within the facility. GPS (Global Positioning System) synchronized clocks have become more mainstream in any industry’s production line or business segment. These PRECISE timepieces ensure uniform, legally traceable time sources, which is an integral part of a company’s Quality Control standard. In some cases, their installation is mandated legally by trusted certificate authorities. GPS technology can synchronize timekeeping with any national standard like the Indian Standard Time (IST).
What is a GPS CLOCK?
GPS clocks are precise clocking systems that use satellite technology. The satellites scattered around the Earth record real-time data with 100% precision. It is transmitted to the clocks, mounted at various process or function locations of any establishment around the globe. One of the many types of GPS Clocks is based on the Master-Slave concept. The Master receives time signals from the satellites and then transmits them to slave clocks.
How does a GPS Clock work?
The satellites in a GPS network are equipped with highly precise built-in atomic timepieces. These tiny atomic clocks are guided by and synchronized via a single master clock controller, which lies on the Earth’s surface. These satellites dictate the right time to all the clocks. Consequently, a GPS clock system mirrors the technology used in its skeleton, the atomic Clock. With an accuracy of 40ns (nanoseconds) at maximum, for the user, it roughly translates into the Master constantly receiving the time from the satellites.
All clocks within the transmission range of the Master display simultaneously, thereby establishing uniformity across the whole institution. Hence the name GPS Synchronized Clocks. Here the integrity of the time stamps during different production stages is preserved. It cannot be tampered with or display inaccurate readings.
Why synchronized timing?
It can aid any institution in adopting an error-free system while measuring any time-bound activities. A standard reference of time for the entire workforce/population is established across numerous processes in different locations within a specified area. Essae’s GPS clocks function through the Master transmitting time coordinates to the clocks through a Radio Frequency [RF] medium, a standard medium used for wireless communication between devices. The Master unit receives exact atomic time data from a network of GPS satellites. It transmits the same at regular intervals to all display clocks within a 300m radius through wireless radio frequency (RF) signals.
What are the benefits of using the Essae GPS synchronized clock system framework at your workplace/institution?
1] The technology used is 100 % accurate and, therefore, always reliable.
2] It guarantees synchronized and accurate time in any location across India.
3] Simple LED display for enhanced readability even from a distance,
4] It doesn’t permit the manual setting of time. Hence, it eliminates all the errors associated with a manual clock setting.
5] Simple plug & play wireless installation.
6] Requires zero maintenance and offers round-the-clock operability on AC Power.
7] Our clocks also regulate account for daylight savings during a part of the year.
Essae GPS Digital Clocks are usually adopted to address administration, HR, GLP, and GMP compliance via time stamps.
