GPS synchronized Central Time Base for SCADA/EMS Solutions with optional Frequency Monitoring System

The Meinberg LANTIME M300/GPS/SCADA central time base has

been designed to form a highly accurate, stable and reliable time and
frequency reference for SCADA/EMS solutions. The system comes
with an impressive set of interfaces to offer SCADA servers, network
control room displays and operator workstations a central source of
reference time. It uses a built-in Meinberg GPS radio clock as its
reference time source and a highly stable and precise oscillator is
capable of bridging interferences or a temporary loss of reception.
Two M300/SCADA systems can be used in a high-availability mode to
form a fully redundant central time cluster.

Key Features:
Synchronization of NTP and SNTP compatible clients (network
time synchronization)

FREQMON Option: Powerline Frequency Monitoring and Data


Web based status and configuration interface and

console based configuration utility

Supported networking protocols include:


If required, the M300/SCADA can be ordered with the FREQMON

option enabling power line frequency monitoring for 50 Hz/60 Hz
power networks (70-270 V). The system can be configured to send
alarm notifications (SNMP traps, E-Mails) when the measured
frequency exceeds a configurable range. The powerline frequency
measurements are recorded 10 times per second (100 ms sampling
frequency) and these recordings can be checked by accessing a web
page that visualizes the recorded measurements. The raw data files
can be retrieved for documentation purposes or to analyze the data
with third party tools.

Alert-Notification system of status changes and PL Frequency

Limit violations by email, WinMail, SNMP

Supports up to 16 wall mount display units which can be

connected via a TCP/IP network to display the powerline
frequency, current time and other values

Sends 10 frequency measurements per second to data acquisition

software over a network connection

Full SNMP v1,v2,v3 support with own SNMP-daemon

for status monitoring, configuration and SNMP Trap messages

USB port for performing updates, lock front panel,

and backup/restore configuration and log files.

Antenna can be positioned up to a distance of 300m to the

receiver with standard coaxial cable RG58

Four independant RJ-45 ethernet interfaces 10/100 MBit with

VLAN support and automatic link failure detection/reconfiguration

Programmable Pulse outputs for PPM, PPS and other signals with
high accuracy
The Cluster Functionality includes automatic reconfiguration of both
master and standby systems in case of a status change and will only
take a few seconds to switch over from one NTP server to the next
The FREQMON option can update a set of Meinberg display units
with different data records: Powerline Frequency, Frequency Deviation
(Delta Frequency), Standard Time (GPS Time), System Time
(Powerline Time) and Time Deviation (Delta Time). The data is
transmitted over a standard TCP/IP network connection to up to 16
displays or data acquisition storage systems.

Three LEDs (green/red) indicate the status of the three main

components: Reference Time (GPS), Time Synchronization Service
(NTP) and Network (Link status). A fourth red LED is labelled ALARM
and can be configured to signal any event that is covered by the
notification handling routines.

Three-Year Warranty
