Introducing Beagle Software's DocuClock date/time validator.  DocuClock prints a time stamp with atomic clock accuracy, for those who need a permanent, accurate time-stamped record.  If you are looking for a way to prevent unauthorized date/time changes consider our Sentry.

DocuClock is a full featured, premium product that provides businesses a time and date stamp with an assortment of user-selectable print formats and time displays. It has been specifically developed for securities firms required to comply with the OATS (Order Audit Trail System) mandate (Rule 6953).  More information on OATS.

Using the included software and cable, DocuClock  receives time impulses from a Windows-based PC. This application is well-suited to smaller securities locations that may need to synchronize only a few clocks, or to larger firms that want to achieve OATS compliance by using a master clock.  With its attractive yet rugged design, the DocuClock is perfect for both office and industrial environments.

  • Accurate, computer-controlled time output.
  • OATS Compliant:  ideal for traders who must show seconds on their trades as required by NASD-OATS and the SEC regulations. 
    Prints: Year/Month/Date/Hours/Minutes/Seconds
  • User-selectable print formats:  Standard or custom messages.
  • Automated Activity Log:  A log entry is added every time a timestamp is printed.
  • Atomic Clock Accuracy:  with ClockWatch software installed, the host computer can be set to receive time signal once, twice, or several times a day. NIST time signal can be received through a modem or the Internet.
  • Multi-User: Since it can run as a service, DocuClock is available for time stamping whenever the computer is on, regardless of who is logged in.
  • Synchronized Time:  Computer sends time signal to printing unit every time a time stamp is made.
  • Accurate:  Accuracy within +/- 1 second per day.  When used with ClockWatch, DocuClock will not accumulate time drift because it is synchronized every time a time stamp is made (OATS allows time drift of up to three seconds per day).
  • Fail Safe Mode:  Only prints if accurate. Unlike other time print systems, DocuClock will only print the time if it gets a reading from the clock running on the host computer. Other time clocks can accumulate several seconds of drift between readings.
  • Automatic "no print":  If for some reason DocuClock does not receive a signal, the time will not be printed. 
  • Scaleable:  DocuClock can operate either stand alone for a single user or several units can operate together on a LAN. Unlike some time stamp systems, DocuClock can communicate over your existing network. More...
