Easy Conversion of Time Synchronization Signals

OMICRON Lab, Mach 2014 – With the newly developed PTP Time Converter TICRO 100, OMICRON Lab allows precise time synchronization of non PTP-capable measuring equipment, sensors and PLCs via Ethernet in accordance with IEEE 1588. The TICRO 100 converts the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) into conventional time synchronization signals like IRIG-B, DCF77 or different PPX-signals. These time code signals can be easily assigned to the TICRO 100's coaxial, optocoupler or optical outputs using an intuitive web interface. Additionally the TICRO 100 provides a precise 10 MHz nominal frequency for locking frequency counters, signal generators and spectrum analyzers. In case of a PTP signal loss or a network failure the TICRO 100's internal, high stable reference oscillator guarantees the precise local generation of the time synchronization signals for up to 24 hours.

The TICRO 100 is fully compliant to the PTP Power Profile according IEEE C37.238. Therefore, it is an ideal solution to synchronize protection- and automation systems in the electric power industry. In combination with OMICRON Lab's antenna-integrated PTP Grandmaster Clock OTMC 100, the TICRO 100 offers a compact, flexible and portable solution to generate time and frequency reference signals.
