The IDS SQ-NTP is an NTP server, locked to SMPTE time code. It delivers accurate, synchronised time to all the devices on your network, either as a stand-alone NTP server or as part of your IDS installation.

The compact device is housed in a rugged aluminium enclosure, making it ideal for applications with little space. It connects to your network via Ethernet and, with its combination of PoE and tiny size, can be installed quickly and discreetly.

Setup and management of the unit is straightforward, using the Windows® based configuration software supplied. It supports DHCP for automatic acquisition of IP address, but can be configured manually for a static IP if required.

Firmware updates will be available via our website.
