    Network-based Platform Launched

    The growth of full-facility wireless networks led to the creation of the Primex wireless network-based, synchronized clock system. The new platform gives customers two-way communication with the clocks, and the ability to be alerted when a clock needs new batteries or is no longer synchronized.
