TICRO 100 - IEEE 1588/PTP Time Converter

TICRO 100 is a Precision Time Protocol (PTP) time converter that allows you to derive a high variety of time codes from IEEE 1588/PTP packages received by Ethernet. This enables you to easily synchronize non-PTP equipment to the PTP Grandmaster of an IEEE 1588/PTP infrastructure.

Simply assign the time code or time reference signal required by your device to an optical, coaxial or optocoupler output using the TICRO 100’s web interface.

Make Your Equipment PTP Capable

Forget about distributing your time codes over separate networks. With TICRO 100, you can generate the required time codes right where you need them – directly at your equipment. Several IRIG-B time codes, DCF 77, and various pulse per second signals ensure time synchronization of a high variety of measurement equipment.

Synchronize Measurements

With the programmable trigger functionality, you can start measurements at different locations at exactly the same time. Simply program the absolute time of the first trigger pulse, define the number of the succeeding pulses and you are ready to go.

Distribute Reference Frequencies

Wherever you have access to an IEEE 1588 compliant Ethernet connection, TICRO 100 provides you with a precise 10 MHz reference frequency signal. Simply lock your frequency counters, spectrum analyzers, or any other measurement equipment to TICRO 100.

Portable Time Code Generation

In combination with OMICRON Lab’s antenna-integrated PTP Grandmaster Clock OTMC 100, TICRO 100 becomes a fully portable time synchronization device. This allows you to perform time synchronized measurements in the field quickly, with a very low setup time.

Flexible Mounting

You can either use TICRO 100 as a tabletop device or mount it on any DIN Rail by simply adding the provided mounting bracket. Redundant power connectors at the front and back panel ensure full accessibility independent from the chosen use case.

TICRO 100 is equipped with an integrated web server which gives you access to all functions and settings via a web browser. The intuitive navigation concept allows you to control the TICRO 100 via all kinds of computers including tablet computers.

As soon as TICRO 100 is connected to your network, it either acquires its IP address from your network’s DHCP server or selects an Auto IP address. In a Microsoft Windows® environment, you can use the OMICRON Device Browser to easily locate the TICRO 100 in and configure its network settings.

Your TICRO 100 can be secured against unauthorized access by using the encrypted HTTPS protocol with your own SSL certifi cate and password protection.

For setting up more than one TICRO 100, you can easily store the confi guration of a TICRO 100 into an XML fi le and upload it to other TICRO 100s.
