Series Server BCTP8000

Model BCTP8000 - Series Server (V4.1)

Bogen’s BCTP 8000 series master clock comes fully equipped with a crisp LED readout and a backlit two-line LCD display. Programming the BCTP 8000 with up to 800 events is easy with the 2X8 rubber tactile keypad. The BCTP 8000 comes standard with (S)BCTP capability for synchronization to any (S)BCTP website. The clock has two pre-programmed relays that are dedicated for synchronous wired clock systems. The master clock can be purchased with a built-in transmitter for sending out the signal wirelessly to Bogen wireless analog and digital clocks. A GPS can be added as a supplement to the already feature-rich clock for even more accurate timekeeping. The BCTP 8000 Series also encompasses a fully functional web interface for controlling the master clock from any computer on a network or via a crossover cable.

  • Includes all of the BCMA 3000 Series’ capabilities
  • Capable of acting as an NTP Server and providing NTP time to other IP devices in a facility
  • LED and LCD display for a clear, accurate readout 2×8 rubber keyboard for easy programming
  • Available in Rack or Wall mount
  • Ability to store up to ten NTP server addresses for continuous accurate time and redundancy
  • Automatically switch from one accurate time source to another in case of a communication failure RJ45 input for web interface and synchronization to any (S)NTP server
  • 12 or 24 hour mode
  • Automatic bi–annual Daylight Saving Time updates (where observed)
  • Bias seconds output: adjust the time plus or minus a few seconds or minutes to fit your application, while still receiving an accurate time input
  • Proprietary RS485 digital communication protocol input and output for time synchronization
  • Two relays for simultaneous correction of two synchronized wired clock system (Example: 59 or 58 minute protocol, National Time / Rauland, or Dukane protocol)
  • Blinking LED on the master clock’s front panel as a visual indicator to alert a communication failure with the time source has occurred
  • Microprocessor based
  • Control wired clock systems or wired and wireless systems simultaneously, if equipped with a transmitter
  • Selectable UTC/GMT offset
  • DHCP Capable
  • Ten year battery backup for keeping time and the settings of the master clock (keeps internal time only, cannot power display or synchronize the system)
  • Can command digital clocks to display “Fire” when the fire alarm system interfaces with the master clock (not applicable with an IP or sync- wire system)
  • Can command digital clocks to display “Bell” at specifically defined times (need at least four relays) (not applicable with an IP or sync-wire system)
  • Intuitive built-in web interface that allows the user to configure all of the settings of the BCMA series master clock from any computer on the same network
  • Master clock can be programmed to send email alerts when communication with accurate time source has failed, when the master clock has rebooted, and if the facility’s fire alarm has been activated (provided the fire alarm is connected to the master clock)
