Precise time synchronization of protection relays, synchrophasors and other IEDs in the electric power industry is essential for assured power availability.
With the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) in accordance to IEEE 1588-2008 it is now possible to precisely synchronize such devices via Ethernet. For this application two PTP profiles have been defined.
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.
In this video it is shown how non-PTP capable protection relays can be integrated into IEEE 1588 time synchronization infrastructures using the PTP time converter TICRO 100.
How to convert IEEE 1588 to IRIG-B, DCF77 and PPX pulses using the TICRO 100
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.
How to synchronize machine vision- and high speed cameras using IRIG-B and IEEE 1588
Machine vision-, high speed camera- and industrial automation applications require an accurate time synchronization.
The video shows how the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according IEEE 1588-2008 can be used to synchronize cameras for such applications.
PTP capable devices can be synchronized with the antenna integrated PTP grandmaster clock OTMC 100. Cameras requiring an IRIG-B time code for synchronization can be integrated into PTP infrastructures by using the PTP time converter TICRO 100.
How to use the optocoupler output of the TICRO 100
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 +24V is shown.
