Frequently Asked Questions


  • Why should I install this clock?

    When put on display, the date and time have always captured people's attention. Therefore, by implication, a person's attention is not only drawn to the clock itself but to the store and company in its vicinity as well.

  • Can Quasar clocks also be used indoors?

    Since they are very thin, these prestigious clocks can harmoniously coexist in any environment, guaranteeing an outstanding legibility both indoors and outdoors.

    For example, the Quasar series can be used in firms, banks, offices, stores and in all those environments where information regarding time represents an integrated part of daily activities.

    The QUASAR product family can also be installed indoors if the environment is wide enough to offer legibility even at distances over 20 m.

  • How can I synchronize my Quasar?

    The entire Quasar product line has a wide range of available accessories to meet any and all needs. For synchronizing purposes, Solari provides a GPS receiver as an accessory, which along with an infrared remote control guarantee a simple and quick configuration and therefore total control of the device.

  • How many Quasar clocks can I install in a single environment?

    You can install several Quasar clocks. If you have one, it can be controlled individually, otherwise multiple Quasar clocks can be installed and then synchronized thanks to an MCK (Solari Master Clock).

  • What does NTP mean?

    NTP stands for Network Time Protocol. It is a protocol used for synchronizing clocks. Solari's most recent designs use this technology.

  • What does PoE mean?

    PoE is an acronym for Power over Ethernet. This technology makes it possible to use an ethernet cable as a power supply as well.

  • What are the advantages of PoE?

    The advantage is that costs are reduced since it is not necessary to install electric cables to supply power to the system and since it is far more simple and quick to install the system itself. Furthermore, the low-voltage power supply makes this device much safer.

  • I have a dated clock system that I don't want to change. I need some clocks to install in new rooms. Can I keep the old clocks and purchase only clocks for the new rooms?

    Yes, our newly designed clocks that use the NTP protocol can coexist with pre-existing clocks. There are several master clocks that based on the model are capable of managing one or more impulse lines, so as to synchronize traditional clocks as well as NTP clocks.

  • How are the clocks powered?

    Certain clocks can be powered by batteries as well as by an impulse line (OLC and DATOR product family), while others can be powered via PoE (famiglie Mosaico and CDL product family), and, finally, the Quasar product family can connect to the standard wall outlet.

  • Is maintenance necessarily performed directly on the device?

    Not necessarily. Our recently designed devices have an integrated Web server, and therefore configuration and synchronization can be performed remotely, by means of a simple browser. This feature greatly simplifies and speeds up maintenance, especially when the clock' s location is not always easily reached.
