Usually, a day has 86,400 seconds. December 31, 2016, however, will have 86,401. The extra second, which will be added to the very end of this year, will help account for inconsistencies between super-accurate human atomic timekeeping and Earth's natural, if less consistent, rotation speed. While atomic clocks define a second very rigidly and precisely, seconds based on Earth's rotation are slightly off and variable due to tidal friction as the moon's gravity tugs on the Earth's oceans. As a result, keeping the two timekeeping systems within 0.9 seconds of each other requires an extra second now and again to keep them fully in sync.

Accurate timing and synchronization can be accomplished in many ways. While your specific choice of technique depends on your requirements, adhering to proven standards make your systems more practical, robust, and scalable. Here’s why you may want to consider employing IRIG-B time code.

In the world of timing systems, precision and accuracy are everything. In order to synchronize components across great distances, it’s vital that you retain the ability to communicate cleanly.

Most typical coax-based GPS timing networks you encounter in the real world fall prey to basic signal propagation challenges. Latency, degradation, and interference are among some of your worst enemies, and your existing systems may not be able to overcome them. Could optical fiber systems hold the key to building superior timing architectures?

Having precise clocks in airport terminals is not only essential for passengers but also for the intricate information technology systems that airports use. These systems create event tags that provide chronological checks for key areas of airports such as security, baggage handling, and traffic control.

In today's economic world, the word on the tip of all of our tongues is "globalization." Long before the days of traveling distance by train, the people of the world explored the furthest reaches of our planet to discover the many cultures and customs of those lands. However, with expedited mass transit came the need for our world to begin solving a very fundamental problem in travel logistics: "What time is it?"

From SCADA (supervisory control and data-acquisition) systems to PLCs (programmable-logic controllers), industrial automation includes a vast range of control systems. These systems manage everything from automotive part production to food processing, and they rely on synchronizing several devices at once. Although synchronization and timing are never perfect, steady results are possible with the right equipment. Learn more about synchronization with hardware-based Ethernet protocol solutions.

Synchronized time keeps your organization on-time, on-track and on-budget while helping to ensure compliance with ever-increasing traceability regulations. Even if your clocks are fairly accurate and only lose or gain a minute or two, those minutes can turn into hundreds of thousands of minutes of lost productivity when they affect each employee. A synchronized clock system ensures that your company can meet its time commitments, avoid unnecessary waste, meet transportation deadlines and streamline production.

“While it's good to get the wins, you have look at exporting long-term, and you have to demonstrate that you're willing to support your products and do everything possible to demonstrate your commitment to supporting the customer. Performance and ethics can translate across cultures much easier than words can."

Under the new FINRA clock synchronization rule, which went into effect in August 2016, NMS and OTC securities firms must synchronize their computer systems to within a drift tolerance of 50 milliseconds of the National Institute of Standards and Technology standard. This is reduced from within 1 second. Firms that already record in milliseconds have until Feb. 20, 2017 to comply.
