This topic provides the steps to configure a Transmitter for Standalone Use, which it will not be monitored or have a connection to OneVue. Be sure to complete the steps in the order as they appear below.
For a system with more than one Transmitter, first configure and install the main Transmitter and verify it received a valid time signal and then configure Repeater Transmitter(s). When all Transmitters are configured and installed, you can then configure and install the system clocks or InfoBoards.
Verify the requirements below are met before you begin configuring a OneVue Sync Transmitter.
All external components are installed including an external or internal antenna and GPS Receiver, and all connections have been established, and the Transmitter is powered on.
The main Transmitter connections include its AC power, GPS Receiver (for GPS time source), internal or external antenna, and an Ethernet network connection if NTP is its time source.
Repeater Transmitter external connections include its AC power and internal antenna.
NTP time source
The main Transmitter requires connection to wired Ethernet network and NTP Servers IP address (up to three allowed). If wired Ethernet network is a Non-DCHP network, the IPv4 network settings are required during configuration.
Port UDP 123 is required to be open for use with external Network Time Protocol (NTP) Servers. Use of internal NTP Servers is also supported.
