The highly-flexible time server 8029HEPTA

Short Description

The 8029HEPTA enables you to compose your individual time synchronization solution - because every fraction of a second counts

Our modular 8029HEPTA in its three versions:

  • 8029HEPTA Industry
    the perfect solution for companies working in the fields of industry, energy supply and automation:
    • 1 independent NTP time server is integrated in your system by default
    • can be equipped with up to 2 additional mutually independent NTP time server
    • individual slots of your system can be configured with different signal output modules like
      • IRIG-B (analogue / digital)
      • DCF77
      • Cyclic Pulses
  • 8029HEPTA DataCenter
    for the highly-precise synchronization of networks and industrial applications:
    • equipped with up to 7 mutually independent NTP time server
    • efficient and centralized network monitoring (optional feature)
    • efficient network monitoring of each NTP time server (optional feature)
  • 8029HEPTA in its most flexible way
    • different signal outputs are combined in ONE application - based on your specific requirements!

By the way:

The NTP time server 8029HEPTA is also part of the virtual Time Server Cluster


Individuality by flexibility – and the price is unbeatable!

  • simple, complete and safe operation and parameterisation (password protection and activatable https protocol) via a password-protected WebGUI (optional SSH/Telnet)
  • current status bar easily available via WebGUI
  • important information for implementing and about operating status available via LC-display (2 x 40) and status-LEDs at the front panel (if WebGUI-access is not available)
  • improved security ensured by
    • symmetric keys
    • access restriction
    • autokey
    • deactivation of non-used network protocols
  • SyncOFF Timer (reception failure bypassing) for accurate operation even based on difficult reception conditions
  • synchronization status output via optical coupler
  • GPS antenna circuit with potential isolation and antenna circuit control (supervision if antenna input is open or short-circuited)
  • By GPS time synchronization and the worldwide used time protocol NTP the time server 8029HEPTA (Industry/DataCenter) turns into a highly accurate NTP Stratum 1 time server.
  • synchronization of IEC 61850 compatible devices via NTP/SNTP
  • automatic switch-over of summer/winter time
  • high freewheel accuracy provided by GPS supported regulation of the internal quartz basis
  • redundant multiple validation of the synchronization signal for an error-free and leap-free signal evaluation
  • maintenance-free, buffered backup clock for at least three days
  • automatic handling of the leap second
