Clocks and Time Zones

Handling different time zones

0101
Time changes based on geographical location

This project refers to those situations in which the presence of multiple clocks is necessary, where each clock indicates a different hour for different cities throughout the world, and therefore in different time zones.

 

This solution required the creation of a clock with an LED display produced in two different versions, with five or seven distinct location/time displays, in which the names of the locations and corresponding time zones are user configured.

 

The clock can connect to the local ethernet network to allow the user to access the integrated web interface by browser to configure the names and time zones of the various locations.

 

Again, synchronization of alldevices is essential in this solution, but the diversification of time zones must be maintained as well.

 

The MCK 2290 NTP Master Clock, in its various versions, is capable of meeting this requirement. Specifically, among the various features available, it is also possible to configure a different time zone for each clock that belongs to the system.

 

Precision during synchronization is guaranteed by a GPS device connected to the Master Clock itself.

 

In this way, thanks to the presence of the MCK, time synchronization is guaranteed and each clock can still maintain its own time zone.

 

Besides being able to display the name of the location on the dedicated area of the LED display, the main purpose of this clock is to simultaneously keep the various times of the various locations updated based on the time zones set by the user.

 

This is an example in which Solari’s abilities and experience in designing new features for its products have made it possible to answer a very specific need.
