NTP Server Appliance

NTP server appliance [NTS-6002-MSF]

NTP server appliance

An updated version of the NTS-6001-MSF the NTS-6002-MSF NTP server appliance combines an MSF radio atomic time signal clock with an embedded Linux solid state computer and offers straight forward configuration and management via a web browser interface.


NTP server appliance

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. This radio time server incorporates a radio controlled computer clock and remote weather proof (IP65) antenna. Ideally the antenna should be mounted externally on a wall, but can also be mounted internally near a window. The antenna can be positioned up to 200m (600 ft) away as a standard installation, or up to 1,000m (3,000ft) using an optional antenna extension kit.

The NTS-6002-MSF has a backlit LCD display to show both time information and radio signal reception to aid installation. The Software drivers conform to the Network Time Protocol Version 4 (NTP V4) and are available for uni-cast, broadcast or multi-cast NTP time synchronization. Configuration and management of the unit is straight forward via a Web interface. The IP address of the unit can be configured by using DHCP to assign an IP address automatically or a fixed IP address.

The NTS-6002-MSF has dual Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to 2 independent networks and can handle more than 500,000 NTP requests per minute per network, making it the first choice for providing accurate time information to large networks with thousands of clients!
