Importance of Synchronization in the Energy Market

High degree of reliability and availability is a must for time distribution systems. Providing the correct time in power plants as well as in conventional and digital substations is essential. In particular, in high sensitive risk sectors, such as power distribution grid (e.g. medium-voltage power lines, low-voltage wiring, substations and pole-mounted transformers), uninterrupted operation and the recording of all events with a precise time stamping are required at all times to track back disturbances. An absolute time reference is a must.

Improving Timekeeping since 1938

MOBATIME is the leading center of expertise for time & frequency synchronization solutions, time distribution, time references and time display. Our products are used around the world and improving the timekeeping of critical applications.

Synchronization Solution from MOBATIME

Whether you need a standard product or a high-tech custom solution: each product combines proven quality with cutting-edge technology. We supply time synchronization solutions for power plants applications.

PTP Grandmaster & PTP Slave clock solutions from MOBATIME offers an advantage of high accuracy and precision for traceability, with interfaces such as PTP IEEE1588 V2.1, NTP, IRIG-B, E1 etc. Highly accurate, precise and reliable time synchronization is important in the energy sector. Particularly high-sensitivity risk sectors such as power utility industry depend on the reliability and high availability of time systems for all their components at control system level. Uninterrupted operation and the seamless recording of all events is needed at all times.

IEEE-1588 PTP GRANDMASTER – DTS 4160.grandmaster

DTS 4160 is a combined time distribution and synchronization device with up to 4 network ports (IPv4/IPv6). It provides a time reference for PTP and NTP clients. With its high-precision and intelligent concept for redundant operation, it offers a high degree of reliability and availability
