World’s most accurate clock—the clock that replaces everything
Traceable® Clock is accurate to 1/9,000 of a second at all times. Receives a signal 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.
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.
Corrects for Daylight Saving Time
NIST radio signal automatically sets and precisely displays time-of-day to the second, AM/PM, month, date, day of the week, and ambient temperature. 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 from our ISO 17025 calibration laboratory accredited by A2LA. It indicates traceability, for time only, to standards provided by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
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.
A direct, radio-controlled link to NIST’s Atomic Clock in Boulder, Colorado
Traceable® Clock functions as a radio receiver whose internal computer processes the NIST signal received from Boulder, Colorado. LCD digits, 1-1/4-inch-high, are readable from over 10 feet. Battery operation (two AAA supplied) eliminates electrical outage concerns and powers the unit continuously for 1 year. Size is 4-1/2 x 4-1/4 x 2-1/2 inches. Weight is 6 ounces. Replacement battery Cat. No. 1105.
