Affordable Precision Timing for Your Systems
Many of today’s data acquisition systems, high-speed cameras, and remote sensing devices benefit from the addition of precision timing for correlating the outputs of systems that may be operating in different geographic locations. Existing time-code generation devices are large, power-hungry, and expensive. SLS engineers have developed the JT-DO1 GPS-Disciplined IRIG-B Timecode Generator to provide a compact, affordable timing solution that delivers precision timing to your systems.
The SLS JT-DO1 Timecode Generator provides the user with an IRIG-B007, DC level-shift output in addition to a precision GPS 1 pulse-per-second (PPS) output. JT-DO1 delivers timing accuracy better than 20 ns to UTC. Basic technical specifications of the JT-DO1 are given below.
JT-DO1 PRECISION TIMING SPECIFICATIONS
|Dimensions||4.62-in x 2.12-in x 1.0-in (L x W x H)|
|Mounting||0.2-in holes (4x)|
|Supply Voltage||9.5 V - 13.5 V|
|Current Consumption||60 - 160 mA|
|Operating Temperature||0°C - 60°C|
|Timing Accuracy (Clear Sky)||≤ 20ns|
|Timing Accuracy (Indoors)||≤ 500ns|
The standard JT-DO1 timecode generator includes an integrated patch antenna. For indoor applications or other applications where the device does not have a clear-sky field of view, the JT-DO1 is available with an additional coaxial input to support the connection of an external GPS antenna.
JT-DO1-12 Configuration Options
SLS presently offers the JT-DO1 Timecode Generator in three configurations:
- Custom Circuit Board – Includes only the custom circuit board with integrated antenna and no external housing
- With Non-Environmental Housing – Pictured, includes the custom circuit board in a non-environmental, rugged plastic housing with integrated antenna
- With Environmental Housing – Includes the custom circuit board in a sealed 6061 aluminum environmental housing with connection for an external antenna
SLS offers an additional optional configuration for those customers demanding long-duration timing holdover stability when GPS synchronization is lost. Contact SLS today to discuss your timing requirements and to obtain more information on our innovative timing solutions.
