GPS/IRIG B Time Code Generator/Reader, Model 6115G-3R
 

The Model 6115G-3R is a GPS synchronized IRIG B time code generator designed to provide a precise IRIG B serial time code, both modulated and demodulated, output as well as a 1PPS time pulse.  The unit automatically acquires all in-view satellites upon power up and locks an internal IRIG B time code generator to the GPS time reference.  If the GPS lock is lost, the 6115G-3R will automatically switch to an internal clock and continue generating the output IRIG B signal.  No discernible change in the IRIG B output will occur due to this transition.

 In the event that a GPS signal is not available the 6115G-3R can be locked to an external IRIG B serial time code signal.  The selection of GPS or IRIG as the synchronization source is via a front panel switch or it may be done remotely via a TTL signal or contact closure.  

The 6115G-3R may also be synchronized to an external 1 PPS such as a time mark signal from another timing device.  When applied, the 6115G-3R internal clock will be reset to the closest second.  It is therefore necessary to have previously set the clock recently enough to be certain that the error would be less than one half second.   

The 6115G-3R may also be used as a stand-alone unit to generate an IRIG B signal.  The time-of-year may be set by the user via front panel switches.  A backlit LCD readout displays the days, hours, minutes and seconds as well as status.  In the event of a power failure the 6115G-3R will no longer output a serial time code however the time will continue to advance by automatically switching to a battery backed-up internal clock.  The IRIG output will resume, without resetting, upon reapplication of power.

The unit has five buffered IRIG B outputs and one demodulated IRIG B output as well as status and synchronized clock signal outputs. Included is a serial RS-232 port that provides for remote user programming and also provides time and position output.  It is powered by 100 to 240 VAC 50/60 Hz.

Also available is the model 6115G-3RN which is identical to the 6115G-3R except it outputs NMEA 0183  GGA and ZDA serial messages.

Time Code Generator/Translator,
Model 6115SC

 The Model 6115SC is a Time Code Generator/Translator that converts an applied time code to one serial time code and five slow codes.  The unit operates on any of four IRIG time codes, A, B, E and  G.  The applied code is then translated into IRIG B and five Slow Codes, 1 sec, 5 sec, 10 sec, 30 sec and 60 sec.  Any of the 5 slow codes is output via a power amplifier as selected by a front panel switch. A selectable IRIG time code output A, B, E or G is provided regardless of the input IRIG format.  Therefore if set to IRIG B,  this signal may be used to drive an external IRIG B display.  If the applied time code signal is lost the 6115SC will automatically switch to an internal clock and continue generating the output IRIG signals.  No discernible change in the IRIG or Slow Code outputs will occur when the input time code signal is removed after synchronization.  
 

The 6115SC internal clock is automatically synchronized to the selected IRIG serial time code upon application of that time code signal to the IRIG input port.  Once synchronized the IRIG signal can be removed and the unit will continue to operate on the internal clock, which also generates all serial IRIG signals and Slow Codes.  The outputs are always synchronized with the time code generator and phase locked to the input signal when present.

The 6115SC may also used as a stand-alone unit to generate IRIG time codes.  The time-of-year may be set by the user via front panel switches.  An LCD readout displays the days, hours, minutes and seconds as well as unit status.

The unit is housed in a 1.75 inch high (1U), 19 inch wide rack mountable aluminum enclosure, 9 inches deep and is powered by 100 to 240VAC, 50/60 Hz.

 An internal clock is automatically synchronized to the applied time code upon receipt of a valid IRIG B signal.  If the unit loses the lock after initial synchronization, it will continue to operate on the internal clock.  No discernible change in the IRIG A time output will occur when the IRIG signal lock is lost after synchronization.  The IRIG lock status is indicated by a front panel LED. The IRIG A output provides IRIG time in un-modulated level shift format. Three buffered TTL, positive true outputs are provided.

The output level of the three buffered IRIG B outputs are individually set by front panel controls.  These outputs are not available when the 6115-9D is operating without an IRIG B input.

 The unit is housed in a 8.5 by 8.5 by 2.5 inch aluminum enclosure.  It is powered by 9 to 36 volts AC/DC power. The 6115-9DR is also available in a rack mount version, Model 6115-9DR.

GPS/IRIG B Time Code Generator/Reader, Model 6115G-3,  

The Model 6115G-3 is a twelve channel GPS synchronized IRIG B time code generator designed to provide a precise IRIG B serial time code output as well as a 1PPS time pulse.  The unit automatically acquires all in-view satellites upon power up and locks an internal IRIG B time code generator to the GPS time reference.  If the GPS lock is lost the 6115G-3 will automatically switch to an internal clock and continue generating the output IRIG B signal.  No discernible change in the IRIG B output will occur due to this transition.

 In the event that a GPS signal is not available the 6115G-3 can be locked to an external IRIG B serial time code signal.  The selection of GPS or IRIG as the synchronization source is via a front panel switch or it may be done remotely via a TTL signal or contact closure.  

The 6115G-3 may also be synchronized to an external 1 PPS such as a time mark signal from another timing device.  When applied, the 6115G-3 internal clock will be reset to the closest second.  It is therefore necessary to have previously set the clock recently enough to be certain that the drift would be less than one half second.   

The 6115G-3 may also be used as a stand-alone unit to generate an IRIG B signal.  The time-of-year may be set by the user via front panel switches.  An LED readout displays the days, hours, minutes and seconds.  In the event of a power failure the 6115G-3 will no longer output a serial time code however the time will continue to advance by automatically switching to a battery backed-up internal clock.  The IRIG output will resume, without resetting, upon reapplication of power.

The unit has five buffered IRIG B outputs as well as status and synchronized clock signal outputs. It is powered by 28VDC and operates over a temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C. It is housed in a 8.5" wide, 8.5" deep, 2.5" high aluminum enclosure.

GPS/IRIG B Time Code Generator/Reader with BCD time output, Model 6115G-4,  

The Model 6115G-4 is a twelve channel GPS synchronized IRIG B time code generator designed to provide a precise IRIG B serial time code output as well as a 1PPS time pulse.  The unit is identical to the 6115G-3 except it includes a parallel BCD time output port.  The unit automatically acquires all in-view satellites upon power up and locks an internal IRIG B time code generator to the GPS time reference.  If the GPS lock is lost the 6115G-4 will automatically switch to an internal clock and continue generating the output IRIG B signal.  No discernible change in the IRIG B output will occur due to this transition.

 In the event that a GPS signal is not available the 6115G-4 can be locked to an external IRIG B serial time code signal.  The selection of GPS or IRIG as the synchronization source is via a front panel switch or it may be done remotely via a TTL signal or contact closure.  

The 6115G-4 may also be synchronized to an external 1 PPS such as a time mark signal from another timing device.  When applied, the 6115G-4 internal clock will be reset to the closest second.  It is therefore necessary to have previously set the clock recently enough to be certain that the drift would be less than one half second.   

The 6115G-4 may also be used as a stand-alone unit to generate an IRIG B signal.  The time-of-year may be set by the user via front panel switches.  An LED readout displays the days, hours, minutes and seconds.  In the event of a power failure the 6115G-4 will no longer output a serial time code however the time will continue to advance by automatically switching to a battery backed-up internal clock.  The IRIG output will resume, without resetting, upon reapplication of power.

The unit has five buffered IRIG B outputs, one parallel BCD time output and status & synchronized clock signal outputs. It is powered by 28VDC and operates over a temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees C. It is housed in a 8.5" wide, 8.5" deep, 3.25" high aluminum enclosure.

GPS/IRIG Video Data Inserter,  Model 6325G, provides for the insertion of a GPS or IRIG B synchronized time message, Latitude, Longitude and Altitude into an applied RS-170, or NTSC Video signal.  The time and position messages may be positioned to any location in the viewed scene by serial ASCII commands entered via an RS-232 port.  Additionally, alphanumeric messages input via the serial port may be inserted.

  • 12 Channel GPS Receiver.

  • Active GPS antenna

  • RS-232C Serial Port.

  • Inserts GPS or IRIG Synchronized time message into video signal.

  • Inserts Latitude, Longitude and Altitude position message.

  • Inserts Alphanumeric data received via the RS-232 serial port.

  • Inserts Boresight reticle (crosshair).

  • Generates IRIG B time code signal, synchronized to GPS.

  • Operates with NTSC, RS170, or optionally PAL/CCIR (6325GP)

  • Non-volatile Memory.

  • Operates on 9V to 36VDC power.

An internal clock is synchronized by the GPS receiver.  Once the time is established, a loss of GPS lock will cause the 6325G to automatically switch to the internal clock that will increment the time display until the GPS signal is re-acquired. A programmable time offset may be used to convert from UTC to local time.  In the event that a GPS signal is not available, the 6325G can be locked to an external IRIG B serial time code signal. In the absence of both a GPS and IRIG signal the 6325G clock may be set by the user via the RS-232 port. 

The 6325G is housed in a ruggedized 2.5 inch high by 8.5 inch by 8.5 inch deep aluminum enclosure.
