Frequently Asked Questions


  • Does this clock need to be plugged into a power outlet?

    An OLC clock can be plugged into a power outlet, but there are other options as well: it can be installed as an independent clock using batteries, or as an impulse receiver, controlled by a master clock.

  • Is there a particular way of cleaning the OLC?

    Cleaning this clock is very simple: just use a soft cloth, dry or damp with normal water, without the need for specific detergents.

  • 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.

  • Why should I install a clock in an office?

    A clock adds to the decor of an office making it a more welcoming and comfortable working environment.

  • 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.
