Time Server - Rackmount Radio Time Server - NTS-6002-MSF

Radio NTP Time Server NTS-6002-MSF [NTS-6002-MSF]

Time Server

The NTS-6002-MSF radio NTP time server 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.

Rackmount Radio NTP Time Server

The Time Server unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. Our Radio NTP time server incorporates a radio controlled computer clock and remote weatherproof (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 Time Server has a backlit LCD display to show both time information and radio signal reception to help with 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 done 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 comes with dual Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to 2 independant networks and can handle more than 500,000 NTP requests per minute per network.

WWVB (North America) and DCF (Germany) radio receiver options are also available for this product
