Ingrams : The Leading Manufacturer and Installer of Synchronised School Clocks in Australia

Ingrams Time Systems have been supplying and servicing time systems in Australia since 1890. We manufacture and install clock systems specifically designed for installation in schools and universities. A time system in the education environment must be accurate and synchronised perfectly in order to avoid chaos. Imagine a school or university where classes finished at different times! That's why Ingrams are the leading experts in school time systems in Australia.

What is a Master and Slave Clock System?

A master and slave clock system is a system where one clock is designated as the master clock, and the other clocks are designated as slave clocks. The master clock controls the timekeeping for the entire system, and the slave clocks mirror the timekeeping of the master clock. In most cases, the master clock is accurate to within a few milliseconds, while the slave clocks are accurate to within a few tens of milliseconds. Master and slave clock systems are used in a variety of applications, including synchronising computer networks and ensuring that financial transactions are processed at the correct time.

Ingrams uses both Wifi and POE synchronised time systems and have supplied these to some of the largest universities and schools in Australia.

Most schools and universities synchronise their clocks using this master and slave clock system. This ensures that all the clocks in the school or university are accurate and stay synchronised with each other. Over the past decade, universities across Australia have been increasingly relying on synchronised wifi and NTP time systems to keep their campuses running smoothly. The benefits of these systems are numerous, and they have been shown to improve communication and coordination between different departments, reduce confusion and disruptions caused by timetabling changes, and even improve student retention rates. However, setting up and managing these complex timekeeping systems can be a challenge, especially for larger universities with multiple campuses. That's where Ingrams comes in.

We have extensive experience manufacturing and installing school and university Wifi and NTP time systems, and we can help you get the most out of your investment. Our team of experts can provide advice on everything from system design and installation to ongoing maintenance and support. So if you're looking for a partner that can help you make the most of your school or university's timekeeping system, contact Ingrams today.
