NTS-pico3

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

The NTS-pico3  server has a multi-satellite receiver simultaneously supporting GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS*, and BEIDOU*. The server has a 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). The server supports cryptographic authentication for NTP. Holdover mode ensures synchronization accuracy is better than 4ms in the 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.
