Time Server 8029NTS for DIN Rail mounting – compact and highly flexible at the same time

Short Description

On purchase you decide on

  • which additional signal output modules (incl. physical signal output and plug-in connection) you optionally want to have integrated in your system:
    • 1 independent NTP time server is integrated in your system by default
    • you can specify on purchase if you need an extension slot to be equipped with an additional independent NTP time server or with the following optional signal output modules:
      • IRIG-B (analogue / digital)
      • DCF77 pulse
      • cyclic pulses
    • the external time synchronization source:
      • GPS (immediately available)
      • IRIG-B (on demand)
    • which kind of power supply you require:
      • 100-240V AC
      • 110-250V DC
      • 24V DC
      • 48V DC
    • which type of crystal to be integrated in the application:
      • standard crystal
      • VCTCXO crystal

The completely maintenance-free and highly-precise network time server for DIN Rail mounting is the ideal synchronization solution of networks and industrial applications.

  • 1 independent NTP time server is integrated by default; on request your system can be equipped with 1 additional independent NTP time server or with the following signal output modules
    • IRIG-B (analogue / digital)
    • DCF77 pulse
    • cyclic pulses
  • 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 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 8029NTS turns into a highly accurate NTP Stratum 1 time server
  • synchronization of IEC 61850 compatible devices via NTP/SNTP
  • closed aluminium profile housing for easy and horizontal DIN Rail mounting according to DIN EN 60715 TH35
  • 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
