Lathem Launches Revolutionary New Solar Powered Wall Clock A Green and Accurate Timekeeping Solution Ideal for Today's Businesses
ATLANTA (July 13, 2009) - Lathem, one of the world's leading designers and manufacturers of time, labor and security products for small business, today announced the launch of a Solar Powered Analog Wall Clock. The clock, part of a synchronized clock system called AirTime®, is engineered specifically for use in commercial buildings and is a viable "green" alternative to a business' existing AC powered clock system.
Solar panels located on the front dial of the clock recycle the room's ambient light into power for the clock. It features a manually activated light meter with an LED indicator that informs if a room has sufficient light to operate via solar energy. Depending on the light level of the room, the clock either operates completely off solar power or can alternatively be powered by a single replaceable lithium battery.
The clock also maintains accurate time (to the millisecond) by synchronizing to an AirTime wireless signal and providing a smooth sweeping second hand, indicative of its quality. An internal UHF radio receiver provides reliable signal reception. "Plug and play" installation, requiring no manual setting, and the Automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment, make the clock simple to install and maintenance free for the life of the clock.
"This clock is designed with the eco-friendly and energy-saving needs of today's businesses in mind." said Donna Lathem, AirTime national sales manager. "Lathem is proud to continue to offer quality products that are cost-effective and easy to use. The innovative engineering of the Solar Powered clock allows a business to take their environmental efforts to another level."
This new product will be available through a worldwide network of Lathem authorized dealers. Detailed product information can be found on Lathem's website at www.lathem.com.
