PTP80 Elite-S GrandMaster & Boundary Clock

The PTP80 Elite-S GrandMaster & Boundary Clock generates and distributes precisely
synchronised time across packet networks.

It uses Precision Time Protocol (PTP) to IEEE-1588 v2 to distribute time to remote PTP clients and slaves over a network. Multiple PTP80 Elite-S units can be utilised for load sharing resilience and increased support. It is also capable of synchronising to PTP offering further timing resilience.

PTP80 Elite-S offers the capability of a PTP Grandmaster which can be synchronised from both a GNSS source and another PTP Grandmaster Clock, thereby providing a highly
resilient source of packets.

  • Advanced hardware-generated timestamps
  • Internal disciplined oscillator provides continued stability if synchronisation source interrupted
  • One PTP Grandmaster element enabling synchronisation of a large range of PTP clients
  • One PTP client element for synchronisation from another Grandmaster clock
  • Rubidium or Quartz Oscillators
  • Multiple outputs include 1PPS & 10MHz, E1/T1 and IRIG-B
  • OEM Board design also available providing Equipment Manufacturers with a fast track
  • PTP implementation.

Input Synchronisation Options:

GPS, GPS/GLONASS, GPS/ BEIDOU (all via Active or Long Distance Antenna)
IEEE1588V2 (PTP)
Multiple alternative inputs available

The PTP80 Elite-S GrandMaster Clock incorporates hardware based time stamping, providing the highest level of timing and frequency over a broad range of wireline and wireless applications using Precision Time Protocol (PTP), described in the IEEE 1588-2008 version 2 standard.
