sync your computer time with GPS

gps-t1000-time-server.jpgIf you are a GPS navigation system user you probably know that your device has the capability to download the correct time from the satellites without you having to set it. And it is probably going to be more accurate than any watch you own no matter how expensive it is.

Did you know you can use the GPS satellite technology to update the clock on your computer? The T1000 Precision Time Server will obtain accurate timing information – down to 100 nanoseconds – from GPS satellites and pass on this information to your computer using RS232 serial port.

T1000 comes with 5 meters of cable for the GPS antenna but you can extend it up to 23 meters using a special coax cable. The GPS receiver is a 12 channel fast acquisition kind – but the manufacturer of the chip is not mentioned.

Here is a list of all the features:

  • Highly accurate computer timing source. Accurate to 100 nanoseconds.
  • Drivers for Windows 95/98/ME, NT/2000/XP, Server 2003 and Linux\UNIX.
  • Up to 23 meters maximum cable length.
  • Weather-proof high gain GPS antenna.
  • Easy installation and configuration.
  • Requires a single serial RS232 port.
  • Optional pulse per second (PPS) output for precision timing.
  • USB option.
