Time and temperature signs were the precursor to today’s electronic message centers and are easily the most photographed signs in America.
In the beginning, displaying time and temperature required two separate signs, but in 1951, Watchfire (then Time-O-Matic) shipped the first sign from our Danville factory that displayed time and temperature using the same bank of bulbs. It was installed in Spokane, Wash., on Christmas Eve.
By 1998 we introduced LED technology to our product line and continued to develop new innovations like encapsulated modules, and through-hole LED construction to maximize image clarity and lengthen LED life.
Today, our time and temperature signs have increased energy efficiency, reliability and are FCC compliant, UL 48 & CUL 48 listed and UL Energy Efficiency Verified. They feature the same 5-year warranty, front-ventilation and 5-inch slim cabinets as our LED message centers.
Our TimeTracker® satellite-guided system provides precision time accurate to the trillionth of a second. Digital temperature sensing increases the accuracy of your sign’s temperature display. Built on a 19mm module platform, displays come in 12-inch or 24-inch character heights in either red or amber.
