GPS Over Fiber Optic Timing Technology

In the world of timing systems, precision and accuracy are everything. In order to synchronize components across great distances, it’s vital that you retain the ability to communicate cleanly. 

Most typical coax-based GPS timing networks you encounter in the real world fall prey to basic signal propagation challenges. Latency, degradation, and interference are among some of your worst enemies, and your existing systems may not be able to overcome them. Could optical fiber systems hold the key to building superior timing architectures?

Synchronizing Airport Terminals and Air Traffic Control Systems

Maintaining accurate time is key in the travel industry, especially in airport terminals and air traffic control systems. Airports and airlines are particularly busy during summer and holiday vacation periods, which is stressful for workers as well as passengers. Having correct airport terminal clocks and in-sync air traffic control systems is essential. One way to reduce stress, prevent delays, and ensure smooth transportation schedules is to maintain precise time synchronization. 

Global Time Zones: When Time is Money, Your Clock Better Be Accurate

In today's economic world, the word on the tip of all of our tongues is "globalization." Long before the days of traveling distance by train, the people of the world explored the furthest reaches of our planet to discover the many cultures and customs of those lands. However, with expedited mass transit came the need for our world to begin solving a very fundamental problem in travel logistics: "What time is it?"

Synchronizing Industrial Automation Systems Over Ethernet

From SCADA (supervisory control and data-acquisition) systems to PLCs (programmable-logic controllers), industrial automation includes a vast range of control systems. These systems manage everything from automotive part production to food processing, and they rely on synchronizing several devices at once. Although synchronization and timing are never perfect, steady results are possible with the right equipment. Learn more about synchronization with hardware-based Ethernet protocol solutions.

Digital Clocks Keep Manufacturing Facilities in Sync

Synchronized time keeps your organization on-time, on-track and on-budget while helping to ensure compliance with ever-increasing traceability regulations. Even if your clocks are fairly accurate and only lose or gain a minute or two, those minutes can turn into hundreds of thousands of minutes of lost productivity when they affect each employee. A synchronized clock system ensures that your company can meet its time commitments, avoid unnecessary waste, meet transportation deadlines and streamline production.
