Atomic Time Wireless Synchronization

Using the same technology NASA employs to tell time, the Model 1500E wirelessly synchronizes with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) atomic clock in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to confirming the time daily, the 1500E automatically adjusts for Daylight Saving Time. No wires, no worries, and no more excuses for being late.  As a time clock, the 1500E records employees' in and out times for payroll accounting. As a job clock it can track project time for accurate costing. And as a document stamp, the 1500E can print the date, time and preset messages on important documents.

There are some environments and weather conditions that may influence the reception of the atomic radio signal. Just as with an AM radio, the Model 1500E can be positioned for optimal reception. Since it also operates as a highly accurate (+/- 15 seconds per month) quartz time clock, it will function properly while outside the reception area or if it can not receive the WWVB signal.
