In this Video it is shown, how to use the optocoupler output (Output 3) of the PTP time converter TICRO 100. The optocoupler output is needed, when a non PTP Equipment requires a signal level higher than 5V. In this example the generation of a Pulse Per Minute (PPM) Signal with a voltage level of...
The video shows how the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according IEEE 1588-2008 can be converted into conventional time codes like IRIG-B, DCF77 and PPX Pulses using the PTP time converter TICRO 100. The TICRO 100 offers an easy way to integrate non-PTP capable devices into IEEE 1588 infrastructures.

Precise time synchronization of protection relays, synchrophasors and other IEDs in the electric power industry is essential for assured power availability.
In this thesis the effect of DC voltage bias on the equivalent series resistance (ESR) and further on the losses of capacitors is investigated. Especially losses caused by piezoelectric resonances in capacitors with ferroelectric dielectric are investigated.
In this guide Dr. Tomasz Zawada from TOOsonix explains the most important parameters of piezoceramic components and how to measure them using the Bode 100
With the release of the IEC 61850-9-3 “Power Utility Profile” in the middle of 2015, the precision time protocol (PTP) defined in IEEE 1588-2008 became officially an integral part of the 61850 world. But what does this mean for the planning of future substation environments? Will 9-3 replace the...
This information note contains calibration information as well as some checks which will help to decide if it is required to send the Bode 100 to OMICRON Lab for calibration. Additionally, the calibration handling is explained.
In this document, we show how to measure the dielectric response of different liquid insulation materials using SPECTANO 100 and the Liquid Test Fixture 16451A from Keysight.
A huge number of electrical protection relays is installed worldwide. But the time synchronization of these devices can be improved a lot. By synchronizing them to a trustable time source, the analysing of event recordings becomes a lot easier for the protection engineer.
This paper shows, how to...
Machine vision-, high speed camera- and industrial automation applications require an accurate time synchronization.
The Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) uses the antenna-integrated PTP Grandmaster Clock OTMC 100i for several scientific research applications. In the provided report a provides a detailed evaluation of the OTMC 100i Grandmaster Clock and its applications at the BME's department...
At the latest, when the reasons for power failures or black outs in which more than one power utility is involved must be analysed, the importance of accurate and precise time stamps of events becomes visible. Experiences from the past show, that aligning data from different utilities can often take...
In this document we show how to measure the dielectric response of different solid insulation materials using SPECTANO 100 with the Dielectric Test Fixture 16451B from Keysight.
A lot of IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) installed around the world are not supporting modern time synchronization with IEEE 1588. TICRO 100 is used to integrate such devices into IEEE1588/PTPv2 time synchronization infrastructures.
This video starts with a comparison between the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE 1588-2008. Further on it describes, how the antenna-integrated PTP Grandmaster Clock OTMC 100 can be used as an NTP server and PTP server at the same time.
Measuring the plant of a digitally controlled converter is not as straightforward as in the analog case. The solution however is quite simple. Set the compensator to a constant value and measure the loop. Dr. Ali Shirsavar explains the details and how to connect the Bode 100 to perform the...
