The NTS 02-G is a high precision, 3 port GNSS (GPS/ GLONASS) referenced NTP, SNTP and PTP (IEEE1588v2) Grand master or Boundary clock that provides secure, accurate and reliable time synchronization to enterprise networks.

Each of the ports are independently addressable and logically isolated allowing multiple Networks to be connected to the same clock without compromising the network security. The addition of multi-level password protection and user access rights, SNMPv3, and built-in NTP amplification attack immunity, makes the NTS 02-G a versatile synchronization solution for a range of critical network applications.

*Formerly known as the NTS 02-E

LIGHTNING PROTECTION KIT

The antenna lightning protection kit affords additional protection through the use of an impulse suppressor installed in the antenna lead-in coax cable. In the event of a lightning-derived high voltage surge occurring on the coaxial cable, the impulse suppressor activates, short-circuiting the cable directly to the protection ground. Kit contents (all components required to install lightning protection are included): – Impulse Suppressor – Self-amalgamating tape – 2 x N-type Male crimp style connectors to match antenna cable – Crimp Tool to match the above connectors (RG59).

ANTENNA MOUNT

The antenna mounting bracket is an adjustable 500mm powder-coated steel bracket for securely mounting the timing optimized antenna option.

ANTENNA CABLE

High performance CNT-240 cable, factory-fitted with a TNC-type male connector at one end, and a SMA male connector at the other. Cables are available in standard 15, 30, or 60 meter options. Contact our sales team if you require other custom lengths.

BNC-2PIN ADAPTOR
