On board a ship, synchronous processes can be of essential importance, therefore all clocks have to show the exact same time. The master clock or central clock is the one that controls all the other connected clocks and ensures that they run synchronously. This is important for uniform timekeeping on ships. All subordinate clocks are called slave clocks. With the master clock they form a clock network. The master clock consists of the clockwork and the drivers for the slave clock lines. At regular intervals, usually every minute, a short setting signal is sent to the subordinate slave clocks, where it drives the movement of the hands via a stepper motor. The master clock is usually located in the control room of the ship. Order you master- and slave clock now at Querin and never lose track of time!
