NTS-6002-DCF NTP Time Server.

NTP Network Time Server with DCF radio time receiver.

An updated version of the NTS-6001-DCF, the NTS-6002-DCF NTP Time server combines an DCF radio atomic time signal clock with an embedded Linux solid state computer and offers straight forward configuration and management via a web browser interface.

The unit connects directly to your network via a CAT5 Ethernet connection and fits in a standard 19" rack. This radio time server incorporates a radio controlled computer clock and remote weather proof (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-DCF has a backlit LCD display to show both time information and radio signal reception 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 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-DCF has dual Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to 2 independent networks and can handle more than 500,000 NTP requests per minute per network, making it the first choice for providing accurate time information to large networks with thousands of clients!

WWVB (North America) and MSF (United Kingdom) radio receiver options are also available for this product.
