NTS-4000-R-GPS NTP Time Server

A complete solution for GPS network time synchronisation

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

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack (a standalone version of the NTS-4000-GPS is also available). This GPS 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 NTS-4000-R-GPS has 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.
