NTP Time Server GPS Hardware

The NTP Time Server GPS NTS-6002-GPS Hardware has been upgraded to include a quad core CPU and reduce the power consumption of the unit. The NTS-6002-GPS NTP Time Server combines a GPS receiver with an embedded solid state computer running the Linux operating system.

Network NTP Time Server GPS with time receiver

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. The time server incorporates a GPS computer clock and a highly accurate remote antenna that tracks up to 12 satellites for increased precision. The antenna is fully weather proof (IP65) and must be installed externally, preferably on a roof top with a all round 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 NTS-6002-GPS has a backlit LCD display to show run-time information for both the GPS subsystem and the NTP server. It also helps 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 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 can be used.

The NTS-6002-GPS has 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.
