NTP Master Clock system

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. In operation since before 1985, NTP is one of the oldest Internet protocols in current use.

There are multiple public time servers available from government agencies as well as public companies, that allow a “ping” time request sent to them every ~ 5 minutes.
NTP accuracy is ~ 100 milliseconds.

The DDS NTP master can be pointed to either a local time server or a public time server and use the signals to correct it’s own internal clock.

The master has its own backup battery and keeps a very accurate time of its own.
The master will send a packet of time to all the slaves and keep them synchronized to its own clock, thus saving maintenance time and keeping everyone in your organization on the same time.

The master can be adjusted to a specific time zone and day light savings, and will adjust automatically with the DST changes of the selected region.

Our Master clock can connect to its slave’s via wired connection or wirelessly.
