This device is a perfect alternative for synchronizing computer systems or checking the output of an IRIG generator when no PCI slot or serial port is available. It supports both IRIG AM and DCLS signal types and decodes a number of different time codes.
  • Universal Serial Bus (USB)
  • Receiver status LEDs
  • Buffered hardware clock
  • NEW: Optional PPS output available
  • Powered by USB (no extra power supply required)
  • Connectors for IRIG AM and IRIG DCLS

Overview

The TCR51USB shows the LOCK/HOLDOVER status via an integrated LED and uses a buffered real time clock to maintain the time while powered off. There is no power supply required, it is powered by the Universal Serial Bus. The TCR51USB provides a professional solution to your time synchronization requirements in mobile applications like field data acquisition with a laptop/notebook and can be deployed whenever you need to synchronize a standalone PC, laptop or server when no PCI or serial port is available.
With this device a technician can check the quality and validity of an IRIG signal in the field, due to the compact package and simple cabling (only one USB connection for both power and data is required).

The TCR51USB can be ordered with an additional PPS output option (either TTL or RS232 level).

The drivers package for Windows contains a time adjustment service which runs in the background and adjusts the Windows system time continously and smoothly. A monitor program is also included which lets the user check the status of the device and the time adjustment service, and can be used to modify configurable parameters.

The driver package for Linux contains a kernel driver which allows the board to be used as a reference time source for the NTP daemon which is shipped with most Linux distributions. This also turns the computer into a NTP time server which can also provide accurate time to other NTP clients on the network. Some command line tools can be used to setup configurable parameters and monitor the status of the board.

The Meinberg Single-Driver-Concept simplifies driver installation dramatically – there is only one driver who supports all Meinberg PCI and USB devices and if you use our free API to access your Meinberg timing device from within your own applications, you can use the same source code for both PCI and USB devices.
