The Time Code Translator (TCT), housed in a 1U 19-inch rack-mount chassis, receives all of the timing signals from the UTCG via fiberoptic cable and constructs and synchronizes the resulting output signals. The customer can configure every TCT with up to four different time and frequency outputs by selecting plugin modules.
Additional TCTs can be added to the system to expand signals as well as to provide redundancy. Another important TCT feature is the incorporation of “advance” capability, which compensates for fiberoptic path delays from theUTCG. The TCT includes a front-panel time display and panel alarm indicator for ease of monitoring.
