Network Time Server NTS

NTS Features

The NTS can be used as a network time server (NTP) or as a master clock (DCF). As a master clock, the NTS synchronizes other sub-master clocks (e.g. ETC) or devices using DCF (Current Loop-Signal). Alternatively, synchronization impulses (PPS) can be generated.

The NTS can send alarms as e-mail or as SNMP traps (notifications). Furthermore, SNMP can be used for the configuration and monitoring of the state of the NTS System (Get, Put).

Using MOBA-NMS, all Mobatime network devices such as e.g. analog and digital clock, network interfaces (NMI), LAN relays as well as other network master clocks or time servers can be operated and configured.

The software MOBA-NMS allows for easy and convenient operation, configuration, programming, administration and monitoring via LAN.

Alternatively, a simple operation menu is provided by Telnet or SSH.

Mounting the NTS

With rubber pads, the NTS can simply be put on a fl at surface (ill. 1).
Using the two mounting brackets, the NTS can also be mounted to a wall (ill. 2).
Optionally, two brackets for rack mounting are available (ill. 3).

NTS - Applications

NTP time server for small networks

NTP time server for small networks


Synchronization fo an external device with DCF Current Loop (one device only)

Synchronization of an external device with DCF Current Loop


Network bundle

Time system consisting of:

  • Time server NTS, synchronized via GPS or DCF receiver
  • digital and/or analog LAN clocks, synchronized via NTP
  • configuration software for clocks MOBA-NMS
  • LAN switch relay for school bells, time-controlled illumination etc.

Any external devices such as servers, PCs etc. can be synchronized
via NTP.

Network bundle


Synchronization of different networks, e. g. in multiple subsidiaries of a company, railway stations etc.

The local server ensures the synchronization even if the connection to the main server is interrupted (redundancy).
