The NTS-4000-R-GPS GPS NTP Time Server combines a GPS receiver with an embedded solid state computer running Galleon Systems' proprietry, secure operating system.


A complete solution for GPS NTP network time synchronisation

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack (astandalone version of the NTS-4000-GPS is also available). This GPS NTP network timing solution incorporates a GPS computer clock and a highly accurate remote GPS antenna that tracks up to 12 satellites for greater precision. The antenna is fully weather proof (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.

The GPS NTP server has as an LCD display to show run-time information for both the GPS subsystem and the NTP server and to aid installation. The Software drivers conform to the Network Time Protocol and are available for uni-cast, broadcast or multi-cast NTP time synchronization. Configuration and management of the unit is straight forward via a network interface. The IP address of the unit can be configured by using DHCP to assigning an IP address automatically or a fixed IP address can be used.
