Overview

TimeTools SR Series provides a complete range of Linux-based, true Stratum-1, NTP Network Time Servers that represent a real breakthrough in price and performance.

High Quality Products

Housed in a rugged, yet compact, 1U high, rack-mountable enclosure, the SR series takes up minimal valuable rack-space.

By utilising a customized Linux kernel and an unmodified version of the latest network time protocol distribution, NTP version 4.2, the SR series offers true NTP / SNTP functionality.

 

GPS, Radio and Dual Reference Clock Options

Multiple external reference clock combinations can be provided with the SR series; GPS, MSF radio, DCF-77 radio and dual GPS / radio reference capabilities. The SR series provides true flexibility.

The SR series is also provided with a cutting-edge high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can often operate with an indoor located GPS antenna. Additionally, the new receivers can operate from a single satellite-in-view making operation from a window often possible. These features potentially provide a great saving on installation costs when compared to traditional roof-mounted GPS antennas.

Of course, our GPS antennas are completely weatherproof and can be roof-mounted outdoors, if required.

High Stability Extended Holdover Option
High-stability GPS/LF disciplined Temperature Controlled Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) options are available to maintain accurate time for extended periods in the event of GPS / radio reference clock signal loss.

Secure Configuration and Maintenance
A secure (HTTPS), easy to use, password-protected user interface is provided for system configuration and management. FTP/SCP can be utilised to download NTP statistics and upload firmware upgrades, available from TimeTools free of charge.

5-Year Warranty
The SR Series NTP Server is a low-power convection cooled device with no moving parts, aiding long-term reliability. Our confidence in the reliability of the device is reflected in the provision of an industry leading 5-year warranty.

Customer Testimonials

Just installed our first SR9210. We were quite surprised about the craftsmanship and quality of the product. The software seems to be engineered very well too. We were able to complete the set-up within a time frame of one hour from first power on to full configuration – and we wrote the documentation for our configuration in parallel. We are using GPS, DCF-77 and three ntp.org pools for fail-over reasons. Did some fail-over tests too – everything worked as expected. If anyone asks me for advice on a ntp time server, my answer will be: go to TimeTools and place your order. Thank You very much.

SR7110 – Entry Level, Competitive Price
The SR7110 is an entry-level Linux-based true NTP time server at a highly competitive price. It can utilise GPS or LF radio time references to provide stratum-1 NTP functionality, ideal for synchronising digital clocks, DVR’s and smaller networks.

SR9210 – Feature Rich, Value
The mid-range SR9210 provides a high specification NTP network time reference. It incorporates a high-throughput Ethernet network interface, combined with the ability to accept GPS, LF radio or dual GPS / LF radio external time references. The SR9210 is an ideal time reference where a large number of network time clients are to be synchronised accurately and reliably.

SR9750 – High Stability, Extended Holdover
The SR9750 provides all the features of the SR9210 with the additional benefit of a high-stability disciplined TCXO oscillator for extended holdover in the event of primary reference loss. Ideal where a highly reliable source of time is required.

SR9860D – Dual LAN, High Accuracy
The top-of-range SR9860D incorporates dual independent LAN capability for synchronising multiple networks. It also provides enhanced precision along with a GPS/LF disciplined TCXO for extended holdover. Ideal for reliably synchronising multiple, large, networks with a high degree of accuracy.
