The NTS-8000-GPS Windows NTP Server is a dedicated NTP time server for TCP/IP networks, which combines a GPS clock/receiver with a Windows server based computer allowing all the standard options available with Windows.

Windows NTP Server with GPS time receiver

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. This NTP server incorporates a GPS clock and remote GPS antenna. The antenna tracks up to 12 (of 24) satellites for increased precision and is fully weather proof (IP65) as it must be installed externally. The antenna can be mounted up to 1,000m (3,000ft) from the unit using an appropriate (optional) antenna extension kit.

The NTS-8000-GPS has a backlit 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 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 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.

The NTS-8000-GPS can be built with multiple (currently up to six) Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to multiple independant networks and can handle more than 3,000 NTP requests per minute per network, making it the first choice for providing accurate time information to very large networks with thousands of clients!
