Key Features

Stable timing is vital to the operation of your network. Without it, data errors occur and files become corrupted.

A secure time source

With rock-solid setup-and-forget operation, the MC1000 is the solution. Simply connect a GPS or radio antenna and the MC1000 synchronises your network using NTP / SNTP protocols.

Tried and Tested Design

With the MC1000 you get tried and tested design capable of synchronising tens of thousands of PCs. You also get a five year warranty with free lifetime technical support and software updates.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee

We are so confident you’ll be pleased with your MC1000 time server we offer a money back guarantee. If you’re not happy, return the system within 30 days for a refund. Please visit our money back guarantee page for details.

Synchronisation Options & Accessories

Synchronisation Options:

To operate as a stratum 1 NTP time server, the MC1000 requires a connection from either one or two antenna systems. Listed below are the available antenna systems compatible with the MC1000 ntp server.

GPS6000 Time Receiver

The GPS6000 Time receiver provides accurate time synchronisation for your time server. State‑of‑the‑art high performance design ensures reliable timing on your systems, even in hostile RF environments.

MSF1000 Radio Time Receiver

The MSF1000 is an MSF radio time receiver suitable for internal or external use.

DCF1000 Radio Time Receiver

The DCF1000 is a DCF radio time signal receiver suitable for internal or external use.


The MC1000 ntp server is supplied with an IEC mains cable, a CAT5 patch cable, a USB cable, four 19" rack fixing screws and four rubber feet (for non-rack mounting applications). Unless you have requested not to receive them (greener option), the system is also supplied with a CD-ROM containing the MC1000 Utilities software & USB drivers and a hard copy of the MC1000 user manual (all available from the download section).
