Trimble Thunderbolt NTP - Time Server TS100

NTP v4 Time Server For High Reliability Applications


The Trimble Thunderbolt® NTP TS100 Time Server is designed for demanding applications that require high accuracy NTP timestamping. The TS100 supports synchronisation of thousands of workstations, routers, switches and other network elements for logging and security forensics. VOIP IPBX systems also require very accurate NTP timestamps to ensure CDR events are correctly registered and reported.

The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 supports multiple constellations GNSS, which enables tracking of GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou satellites enhancing redundancy and satellite availability. The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 Time Server is certified NEBS standards for reliability.

Industrial applications

Automation systems and industrial environments that use SCADA or other network monitoring, measurement and control systems require high precision NTP reference to ensure reliable and accurate operations.

The NTP TS100 is optimised to deliver extremely stable and accurate time of day (TOD) synchronisation for a variety of time sensitive applications such as datacenters, SCADA systems and PMU synchronisation.

Ideal for demanding environments

The Thunderbolt NTP TS100 leverages Trimble’s decades of experience in GNSS systems with millions of timing devices integrated into telecommunications, digital broadcasting, computer networks and other industrial applications.

The NTP TS100 Time Server offers extended operating temperature ranges to ensure suitability for use in demanding environments.

The NTP TS100 supports a large number of clients making it suitable for medium and large scale deployment. The low cost per client of the TS100 helps reduce the total cost of deployment while maintaining superior reliability

Integration and Installation

The Trimble Thunderbolt NTP TS 100 Clock offers AC and DC power options for easy deployment in all types of network environments.

Matching the NTP TS 100 with Trimble rugged antennas such as the Trimble Bullet™ 360 provides reliable reference acquisition in challenging RF signal environments.

Bullet 360 rugged antennas provide multi-GNSS capabilities so that critical applications can obtain high precision timing signals with the best reliability in the industry.
