Tekron was approached by a key US customer who required a GPS signal to be transmitted from the top of a mountain over 1.5 km’s of fiber to a GPS Clock located in a Control Room within the mountain. Tekron proposed a Fiber Master/Slave solution with the TTM 01-G to be installed on the mountain top to receive the GPS signal (Master unit) and then transmit an IRIG-B Time code over the fiber cable to the TCG 02-G GPS Clock in the Control Room which has a Fiber input in lieu of a GPS Antenna input (Slave unit). This simple cost effective model provided the customer with an ideal time synchronization solution.

By default, Tekron GNSS Clocks are optimized for static timing applications. After completing a site survey, the Clock will enter the ‘position hold’ state, which enables it to maintain accurate timing from few satellites. However, this assumes that the position of the antenna will not change.

Tekron’s latest PRPTP Translator sails through the radiated and conducted emission testing. The PRPTP Translator allows users to utilize legacy equipment in modern redundant PTP architectures. The PRPTP Translator synchronizes to PTP implements on PRP or HSR networks and delivers a synchronous IRIG-B signal to the legacy device. The standards tested against are as follows:

The synchronization of networks, machines, and financial applications is becoming an ever important factor in the day-to-day operation of many companies. With this ever growing need for synchronization, comes a search for knowledge of a lesser known product called GPS clock, Atomic Clock, GNSS Clock, Time Code Generator, Network Time Server or known by a range of other names. In this article, we will refer to these devices as a GPS Clock.

Tekron was approached by an integrator who, in a single installation, required an IRIG-B signal with a local time offset, as well as a second signal with UTC time. In the power industry, such requirements are not common and for this reason, the client had originally installed two clocks – a costly solution to a seemingly simple problem. Tekron, with the TTM 01-G were able to provide a solution using a single clock, in a compact form factor. This highly cost-effective solution also helped the customer in reducing the risk of equipment failure within their network.
