The PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock is an ideal way to distribute 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 Elites can be utilised for load sharing resilience and increased support.
The PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock differs from the standard PTP80 in that it has 2 ethernet ports instead of one, both of which have Gigabit Ethernet capability, plus an SFP connector allowing connection to other media such as fibre.
Typical uses for the PTP80 Elite GrandMaster Clock include all applications that need accurate timing over packet networks, e.g.:
