The unit connects to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. This GPS NTP server incorporates a GPS computer clock and a GPS antenna that tracks up to 12 satellites for increased precision.

The antenna is fully weatherproof (IP65) as it must be installed externally, preferably on a roof top with a 360° view of the sky. It can be positioned up to 200m (600 ft) away as standard, or up to 1,000m (3,000ft) using an optional antenna extension kit.
