Message Clock System
The Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock System consists of a Sapling Messaging Master Clock with a transmitter, a Sapling Master Input Box, and wirelessly synchronized clocks/message displays.
The master clock transmits the time data or the selected message to the clocks in a wireless manner, eliminating the need to run communication wires between the clocks. In addition, since the master clock generates the data being transmitted, the system does not rely on existing facility Wi-Fi or Bluetooth infrastructures.
Along with the standard functionality of a synchronized wireless clock—displaying uniform and accurate time throughout the facility—the system also has the ability to display up to 15 user-programmable messages. Longer messages will scroll across the display at a configurable speed.
The Sapling Master Input Box is designed to interface with any third-party system that can provide a contact closure such as an emergency switch, switchbox, fire alarm, security system, intercom system, and so on. Each input is dedicated to a specific message, which will be displayed upon being triggered. The messages are programmed into the clocks using software provided along with the system.
Each Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock has a built-in repeater, allowing each clock to receive and retransmit the time data or messages sent by the master clock. This unique feature extends the signal range far beyond the master clock’s transmitter and increases redundancy as data can take multiple paths to reach distant clocks. The system utilizes frequency-hopping technology, ensuring the highest level of reliability.
The Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock System is the perfect solution for organizations seeking a convenient method to quickly relay messages throughout a building.
WIRELESS MESSAGING CLOCK SYSTEM ADVANTAGES
Advanced Messaging Capabilities
Set up to 15 customized messages for the clocks to display to keep your facility organized and fully alert.
Built-in Repeater in Each Secondary Clock
A unique feature of the system is that each wireless message clock not only receives the data (time and messages), it also retransmits the data to the surrounding message clocks in its area.
The Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock System is not limited to the master clock’s transmitter range because each message clock has a built-in repeater. The data signal is relayed to remote clocks, allowing vast coverage within a facility without the need to purchase multiple master clocks or repeaters.
Each message clock can receive the data signal from multiple directions and sources, including nearby clocks, clocks on the floors above and below, and from Sapling Repeaters and Master Clocks.
Sapling utilizes frequency-hopping technology to transmit and receive the data. This ensures that the clocks in the system receive accurate time with no interference.
No FCC License Needed
Since the Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock System operates in the license-free frequency range, no FCC license is required to operate the master clock’s transmitter or the secondary clocks’ repeaters. This eliminates the application process and the cost associated with obtaining a license.
Without the need to run wires between the clocks, installation and maintenance costs are greatly reduced. Sapling’s digital clocks are offered in 24 V, 110 VAC, and 230 VAC power options.
Advanced Master Clock
The Sapling Master Clock comes with a built-in web interface to allow easy access and easy setup from any computer in the facility via LAN.
The Sapling Wireless Messaging Clock System does not rely on the facility network infrastructure.
