    I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction.

    I have a UK customer who has asked me to produce a system that gives
    out differnet audio messages at exact times (shift changes and break
    times). The audio side is zero problem as we already have an existing
    audio unit on site, we simply have to upgrade the voice chip.

    However, the timer must be capable of providing seperate clean
    contacted outputs at different times on different days (in order to
    fire the speech system, each message requires its own input). So far,
    I count 33 different events, on different days (some of these are
    "blocked" into Mon - Thursday, Sat & Sun) at different times.

    Whilst that might sound easy (I thought so at first) there is one
    problem. The timer MUST be synchronised by an Atomic Clock,
    preferably the Rugby Clock. The system will require one central LED
    time display and at least 3 additional "slave" time displays dotted
    around the site.

    I have got quotes from some specialist manufacturers, who all say that
    this unit will have to be custom built, and some of them are
    astronomical in price.

    I was wondering if any of you esteemed chaps knew of an "off the
    shelf" multi output system that is available. As a "future proofing"
    exercise, I would like a system that has at least 40 programmable
    outputs.

    Please email me at [email protected] yahoo.com (obviously,
    remove the NOSPAM_NOSPAM!!)

    Thanks in advance

    Scott
