Time Sync Module

Time Sync Module

A-TSM/B

The Time Sync module provides Precision Time Protocol (PTP - Grand Master) and NTP Time services. This enables precision time synchronization for Logix Controllers and HMI systems. It can also provide GPS position and velocity data. The module uses an on-board GPS receiver to provide accurate time and position information.

Because the module is stand-alone and connects to various devices over an Ethernet network the module can be placed as close as possible to the antenna position removing the need for costly low-loss coaxial cables that was traditionally needed to connect the GPS antenna to the module. The on-board GPS receiver also provides velocity and odometer reading allowing the user to implement the module in various vehicle and tracking applications. The GPS accuracy information provided allows the user/controller to make calculated decision when looking at the position, velocity, or odometer information.

A built-in webserver provides detailed diagnostics of system configuration and operation, including the display of GPS time, position, and velocity without the need for any additional software.
