TCP Ax: Programmable Time Code Distribution

The TCP-Ax range of advanced rugged Time Code Processors are extremely accurate and robust instruments that are easily configured with a PC via USB to synchronize with a wide variety of external time sources, including GPS, IRIG-B, Have Quick, and PTP (IEEE 1588).  

The TCP-Ax range of advanced rugged Time Code Processors are extremely accurate and robust instruments that are easily configured with a PC via USB to synchronize with a wide variety of external time sources, including GPS, IRIG-B, Have Quick and PTP (IEEE 1588).  

Two size variants are offered, the TCP-AS (Standard - Top Right) and the TCP-AM (Miniature version - Bottom Right).  The TCP-AS provides additional connectivity, an option for Lithium Ion cell backup and options to facilitate video insertion (PAL and NTSC).

Ethernet options are provided with a built in SNTP web-server that  provides a secure user friendly interface for configuring the unit and I/O functionality along with PTP & NTP functions.  GPS options also provide an RS232 interface port with NMEA message output.

Each unit provides an IRIG-B (121-127) output along with five configurable and programmable digital output signal generators for 1PPS, GPS Have Quick, IRIG-DC,

GPS Lock.   In addition, four digital event capture inputs are provided that are accurate to within 100ns, making the TCP-Ax the ideal instrument for on board data capture, UTC referenced time stamping and timecode signal distribution.

All units are flight qualified and tested to MIL-STD 810F and 461E, CE102 and RE 102.
