IMS - Intelligent Modular Synchronization
Our IMS Series (Intelligent Modular Synchronization) offers built-in redundancy for synchronization sources, power supplies and cooling in combination with highly modular slot based chassis, which supports hot-swapping and field-expansion capabilities.
The design of our IMS enclosures allows to use up to four power supplies (both AC and DC variants can be mixed
and matched), two time code receivers in combination with a signal switch module, a CPU board and up to ten I/O slots.

Network Time Server
Meinberg LANTIME Time Servers will synchronize all NTP or SNTP compatible systems and utilize a Meinberg Timing Reference
as the precision time source. A highly stable internal oscillator bridges periods of interference or temporary loss of
synchronization with minimal loss of accuracy. Models are available in DIN railmount, and 1U and 3U desktop or
rackmount chassis which can include displays, broadcast reference time sources, precision internal oscillators,
and multiple Ethernet ports, frequency, or pulse outputs.

PCI/PCIe and USB Clocks
Meinberg reference clocks can be used to build your own time server or to upgrade an existing system. All Meinberg
GPS, WWVB, MSF, DCF77 and IRIG clocks with a serial or USB interface can also be used with NTP as a highly accurate
hardware clock. They are all compatible with the NTP reference implementation, which includes Meinberg clock drivers
supporting all our products on the most popular operating systems.
Bus Level Timing at a Glance
High precision Time Synchronisation
The IEEE 1588 protocol can achieve a much higher accuracy between a master and a slave by hardware timestamping at both ends, and by the intermediate active network infrastructure components (switches).

GPS/GLONASS Satellite Receiver
Time Signal Receiver in Railmount Chassis
This satellite receivers are assembled in an aluminium profile case for 35mm DIN mounting rail. The integrated power supply is available as AC or DC variants. Additional features of the modules are DC-isolated programmable pulse outputs, RS232 interfaces and DCF77 simulation.
GPS Satellite Receivers
NTP Network Displays
The MEINBERG NTP displays are maintenance-free network time displays, they are synchronized by a NTP time server
over a standard Ethernet TCP/IP connection. LED Wall Display with a clear and good readable 50mm sized dot-matrix
characters, synchronized over a network connection by an NTP server. A LANTIME time server can be configured to
display error messages on an Display unit.
Diplexer and Converter
Meinberg signal distribution units (SDU) are the simplest and most convenient way to add more buffered timing signal
outputs to your distribution rack. The SDU base chassis can be ordered with one or two distribution modules, each
providing twelve additional IRIG AM, DCLS, or fiber optic signals.
