This Stratum 1 GNSS/GPS based PTP GrandMaster and Boundary time clock system is an advanced, cyber secure, high precision master clock timing platform that generates and distributes precisely synchronised time to PTP clients and slaves across packet networks using the PTP (Precision Time Protocol) in accordance with IEEE-1588v2.
The platform delivers excellent time and frequency accuracy using a tried and tested hardware based time stamping system which operates in combination with a choice of high precision disciplined oscillators serving to ensure precise time information is available even in the event of GPS signal loss. Units can be configured as GrandMaster, Boundary Clock or PTP slave while providing multiple output formats including 1PPS, 10MHz, E1/T1, IRIG-B and NTP (RFC1305).
Multiple PTP80 Elites can be configured for load sharing resilience and increased network support. Options include a choice of Oven Controlled or Rubidium oscillators together with a choice of standard or long distance antennae. Constellation options are user selectable via the 12 channel C/A GNSS/GPS antenna covering GPS, GPS/GLONASS & GPS/BEIDOU combinations.
The PTP80 Elite is commonly specified where precision, reliability and cyber security are key considerations in the network application. These high integrity units are common place and thoroughly proven worldwide in PTP network timing applications where traceable, precision time stamping and time distribution is required.
