TimeBox by Shelyak Instruments

The TimeBox allows you to date your recordings or synchronize your PC/Server with the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

"Coordinated Universal Time (French: temps universel coordonné, UTC) is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time."

McCarthy, Dennis D.; Seidelmann, P. Kenneth (2009)


The TimeBox recovers the UTC time from GPS satellites and synchronize your measures/PC's in three different ways:


LED firing


  • Low delay (<8 microseconds) from UTC.
  • Time-controlled pulse.
  • Disable the 59th second firing (optional).


Computer Synchronization


  • One-click synchronization of the PC clock.
  • Precise ±2 miliseconds* UTC.
  • Serial latency estimation.
  • PC time drift measured over time.




  • Logic square pulses (3,6 and 9v).
  • Precise <1 milisecond UTC.
  • Phase constant pulses.
  • Wide range frequencies (0.1-24Hz).
