Advantages of IP Clocks

IP clocks - analog and digital synchronized IP clock systems.

IP Clock Systems

  • IP clocks automatically synchronize over an Ethernet network using NTP or SNTP to a local or internet time server.
  • Clocks are maintenance free and require no operator intervention.
  • Timezone and daylight saving changes are configurable and entirely automatic.

Powered by PoE

  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) – power and data over a single Ethernet cable.
  • Industry standard IEEE 802.3af PoE can be used with existing networks infrastructure.
  • Clocks can be powered without the need for a separate power supply or electrical outlet near the powered device.

IP Clock Configuration

  • Clocks can be individually configured from a password protected telnet session.
  • Configuration parameters include: time zone offset, daylight saving time, 12 or 24 hour display (digital clocks only) and NTP/SNTP time server address.
  • System-wide clock configuration is possible using a DHCP configuration string.

Advantages of IP Clocks

  • Ensure that your entire organisation has access to an accurate, legally traceable display of time.
  • Clocks obtain accurate time from a NTP/SNTP server. No need for a dedicated master clock.
  • Clocks can be configured system-wide or independently and can have different time zone offsets, daylight saving and display formats.


IP clocks provide an accurate time display for schools, hospitals, manufacturing facilities, trading rooms and offices.
