ECS Time Recorders

Before they became ECS, Synchro Time Systems were suppliers, installers and service agents for Ericsson time recorders.

ECS carried on this business, and expanded it enough to make it worthwhile Smiths Industries designing and manufacturing their own time recorder based very closely on the Ericsson model.

To suit any requirements that they could not meet by their own manufacture, ECS still used time recorders manufactured by others, such as National.


The example of a Signature recorder is made by National Time Recorders Ltd and badged as ECS.


The examples of the Leverprint and Autoprint are both manufactured by Smiths for sale by their industrial time division, ECS.
