Four digit ethernet NTP digital wall clock from Galleon

Using an ethernet NTP digital wall clock

Ethernet NTP digital wall clocks plug into an NTP time server using an Ethernet cable. This means that the time signal is sent from the NTP time server directly to the Ethernet NTP digital wall clock, maintaining its accuracy. Ethernet clocks are precise, reliable and synchronised. This article explains how to use an Ethernet clock in your business.
