The Wireless Clock Anatomy

For the many buildings and institutions that have installed wireless clocks in their facilities, many of them probably haven’t had the chance to crack one open to see what is really delivering the technology that a wireless clock provides. Sapling’s wireless clocks are built with only the highest quality materials, which is followed by thorough product testing before the shipment leaves the door. The materials, the circuit boards, the receivers, and the power supplies that go into these devices are so carefully calculated, which is why Sapling’s wireless systems are able to provide facilities with such an accurate, yet maintenance-free time source. Below are more detailed explanations of what is going into each and every wireless clock that Sapling produces.

1. The case

One of the most important parts concerning durability is the case used for the clock. Sapling uses high-quality ABS that can withstand almost any abuse, whether the environment is a hospital, school, or a manufacturing plant. This durable case also has the job of protecting the important internals of the clock that keep it operating properly.

2. The crystal

Another important part when it comes to durability is the crystal. While many competitors use cheap plastic or glass for the front of their clock, Sapling uses a material called polycarbonate. This material is shatter-proof, so anything that comes in contact with the front of the clock will not cause the clock face to break into a million pieces. This material is strong enough, that you could take Sapling’s crystal, put it on the ground and jump on it constantly, and you wouldn’t be able to break it.

3. The movement

The heart, the gears, the component that keeps the hands moving at an accurate pace is the clock movement. Sapling’s movements are of the highest quality, supporting an amazingly low failure rate, and moving efficiently to provide long-term battery life (5-8 years).

4. The circuit board

Sapling engineers have developed an analog clock circuit board so advanced, the competition cannot compare. By having the ability to send and receive a wireless signal within its radius, each clock’s circuit board allows the receiver to act as a repeater within the actual clock. This will carry the signal farther and stronger, and ultimately creating a mesh network within the facility of which it is installed.

The wireless clock from Sapling is much more than the clock you just hang on the wall. The development and innovation put into this clock may not strike an individual at first sight of the device, but after taking a closer look and maybe even cracking it open, you’ll find Sapling’s efforts blatantly throughout.
