"Creating efficiency, one display at a time since 1996"
Question #1: How will you be using the display?
Timers: To measure and display the elapsed time (timer up) or time remaining (timer down).
Timer Down = T-DN
Timer Up = T-UP
Multi-Function, Multipurpose = UT,UTW, (N-T-DN-UP-STATIC)
System = System (synchronized to a master timer)
Counters: To measure and display the number of (pieces, parts, units, etc.).
Counters = C (increments or decrements 1 per unit)
Day Counters = Days (increments 1 every 24 hour period)
Efficiency = EFF (measures and displays the parts completed to what is expected and its percentage of efficiency)
Pace = Pace (measures the efficiency parts completed during a predetermined period of time)
Clocks: To measure and display the time of the day, hours, minutes, and seconds (24 hour period). There are 2 major types synchronized and non-synchronized or standalone. They can also be combined as a system, connected together by wire or wirelessly, having all the same displayed time together.
1) Synchronized master clock system (controlled by a master clock that is synchronized by a GPS receiver, network server, EZ-Time computer program or calibrated crystal oscillator)
2) Standalone clocks (controls its own synchronization by factory calibrated crystal oscillator)
Time of Day = S,N,GPS,UT,UTW
Time Zone = TZ (measures and displays the time of multiple locations around the world)
Number Displays: To receive and display a real time number value instantly.
OEM: (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Displays that are specially designed to be used in or as part of another assembly (signs, boards, artwork, etc..).
Manufactured to fit into your design = OEM
Scoreboards: Displays for sports or presenting an account for real time game stats or progression.
Message boards: Displays text or graphic art style messages.
