World's most accurate clock. The Traceable® Atomic Clock is accurate to 1/9,000 of a second at all times. Use for the receiving of samples, noting the exact time an event occurred, supporting documentation, providing a standard for a location’s other clocks, maintaining ISO 9000 certification, and for the myriad of occasions when knowing the exact time is immensely valuable.
LCD digits, 1-1/4-inch-high, are readable from over 10 feet. Display includes a signal reception strength indicator and a U.S. map showing the user-selected time zone. Night-vision electro luminescent backlighting permits viewing in total darkness. Traceable® Clock has a settable alarm. For noisy areas, the alarm increases in intensity and volume until turned off.
Traceable® Clock functions as a radio receiver whose internal computer processes the NIST signal received from Boulder, Colorado; Signal recieved is directly from the world’s most accurate timekeeper, the National Institute of Standards and Technology. NIST’s atomic clock is accurate to one hundred billionth of a second. It automatically adjusts the clock for daylight saving time, leap year, and leap seconds (earth rotation wobble corrections).
To assure accuracy an individually serial-numbered Traceable® Certificate is provided. It indicates traceability, for time only, to standards provided by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
Supplied with Traceable® Certificate, bench stand, and batteries.
