Miniature Box

Time Server

NTS-pico3

 NTS-pico3 is next generation Industry 4.0, ultra miniature time server. It delivers time directly to network using NTP and IEEE1588 protocols. It is equipped with single 100/10Mbps Ethernet port working with IPv4/IPv6*. Devices supports hardware PTP time-stamping. Unit also has the natural air cooling. It has been designed for  autonomous vehicle market. It has very fast clock recovery important to start synchronisation until GNSS not ready (cold/warm start problem). Devices can also support small industrial networks and it can operate 24/7. The special rack”19 panel can support up to 6x NTS-pico3 sharing a single GNSS antenna and power supply. The device is powered in range 9-30VDC. It is equipped with GNSS antenna and 30 meter coax cable (SMA ended). Marine antenna has built-in GPS signal amplifier (38dB gain) and TCXO holdover oscillator for GNSS less operations.

Server has multi-satellites receiver simultaneously supporting: GPS, GLONASS. It is GALIELO*, BEIDOU* ready. Server has  very fast (less than 0.5ms +/- 1ppm) Time To First Fix TTFF synchronization startup.  The GNSS receiver accuracy is better than 15ns (at 2 sigma). Server supports cryptographic authentication for NTP. Holdover mode ensure synchronization accuracy to be better than 4ms in first hour.  After 24h the max. holdover error is not bigger than 100ms on server output. When normally operating its  accuracy is better than 200 ns.
