Founded in 1970 by Richard M. Fischer and Harry N. Rohrbach, Franklin Instrument Company was established to provide quality wall clocks to the U.S. Government through the General Services Administration. Through the years Franklin has expanded its product line, received national recognition and acquired a significant market share. In 1977 Franklin entered the corrective and synchronized clock market utilizing the best European systems available. This line has been upgraded and expanded to include micro-processor controlled programmable master and secondary clocks compatible with most disciplines. The latest design innovation is the “MP Series”, a micro-processor based controller. The “MP” is the most flexible time system available. Recent technology offers both Atomic WWVB Radio receivers and GPS Satellite receivers that can be fully integrated to supervise large master time distribution systems or directly control smaller systems with accurate, traceable time.
