IE module 100 Base-T Ethernet module with SNMP and NTP function:

The Alpermann+Velte Rubidium series “IE” module is a stand alone Ethernet “mini server”. It´s basic function is the 10/100 Base-T ethernet interface.

This unit offers the users of Rubidium systems the possibility to remotely configure all connected “RUB” Time Code generator / reader and converter modules (via the internal bus connections “TC_link”). Using this interface it is very comfortable to setup and program the system with a Windows/ Mac web browser.

Also the IE module can be upgraded to a NTP time server so that additionally any time base present on the TC_link internal bus, (for example a real-time LTC or real-time NMEA GPS protocol) can be used as a real time source for the built-in NTP Time server.

Other optional functions include SNMP communication of status, data and failure reports.

Included in the standard configuration is a java enabled real time monitoring function, where all connected compatible rubidium modules can be monitored for status and errors.

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) option , available with the Alpermann+Velte Rubidium series “IE” module, functions as an element enabling the interconnected Rubidium Time Code system to be monitored by a centralized network management SNMP software. All status and setup information can be queried via SNMP for every module that is compatible and present in your interconnected Rubidium system. Programmed in accordance to RFC 1065 (also known as SMI version 1) enables a very high compatibility to most publicly available SNMP management software. (Management software not included with Alpermann+Velte Rubidium product line).

The NTP option, available with Alpermann +Velte Rubidium series “IE” module, functions as a fully automatic stand-alone Network Time Protocol server. The NTP server enables the time of day to be extremely accurately retrieved by any computer or NTP compatible device connected to the Ethernet network. Using the Rubi-dium modular systems intelligent TC_link, any available times on the Rubidium internal bus can be used to synchronise the NTP server. Some of these real-time sources include the popular NMEA GPS protocol (from our GPS10MHz Module) or a real-time LTC made available fromby our GT module.
