AtomicClock is an ActiveX component that allows you to retrieve the current time from time servers on the Internet. These time servers often use an atomic clock to obtain their time so the retrieved time is always very accurate.
You can use the AtomicClock control in any application where you need to have accurate time/date stamps, including financial transactions, medical data, long-term data collection, or anywhere else where a reliable time-stamp is needed. You can also use this control to synchronize a computers system clock with an atomic clock at Internet. The control can handle both NTP and NIST time servers. The time can be obtained both as local time and as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
