NTS-6002-WWVB NTP Server

NTP Network Time Server with WWVB radio time receiver

An updated version of the NTS-6001-WWVB the NTS-6002-WWVB NTP server combines an WWVB 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-WWVB 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 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-6002-WWVB has dual Ethernet ports enabling it to serve time to 2 independent networks and can handle more than 250,000 NTP requests per minute per network, making it the first choice for providing accurate time information to large networks with thousands of clients!

MCF(United Kingdom) and DCF (Germany) radio receiver options are also available for this product.
