The master clock’s primary function is to receive accurate time and distribute that time to all of the secondary clocks throughout a facility or in some cases a number of facilities. The master clock is programmed to frequently send out a time signal in order to prevent the clocks from drifting. This will allow all of the secondary clocks in the facility to always display the same time on every clock within a system. With newer systems being made utilizing your companies network, keeping accurate time has become much easier.
