VORTEX timelord-lite master clock
  • Stock: 2
  • Code: BS18380
  • Model: timelord-lite

The TimeLord Lite Atomic-locked Master Time Source is an entry-level master clock designed to drive digital displays and provide accurate time data for video servers and timestamping equipment. It is housed in a 1-U rackmount enclosure with integral mains power supply and is battery-backed to keep the logic running in case of mains failure. There are 15 internal time zones with individual seasonal daylight saving information already programmed for the next hundred years or so, and the logic is battery-backed in case of mains failure. The 482 Time/Date code output is used to reference digital clocks, day/date and multi-zone displays from the established V-400A series.

The TimeLord Lite may be synchronized to an off-air atomic reference, automatically maintaining the correct time throughout the year. GPS (satellite), MSF (Rugby) or DCF (Frankfurt) receivers are available. The GPS system consists of an active antenna plus receiver/interface whilst the MSF and DCF receivers are housed in ABS IP65 boxes. The Serial time data output is designed for locking computer servers and timestamping applications, providing accurate time and date information in numerous data formats.
