The IRIG-B time code protocol is used in military, government, power industry, and many other commercial and industrial application to ensure precise time synchronization. Time information is pulse-width coded in either a BCD or binary format. Masterclock manufactures several devices that can generate IRIG-B time code.
Accurate timing and synchronization can be accomplished in many ways. While your specific choice of technique depends on your requirements, adhering to proven standards make your systems more practical, robust, and scalable. Here’s why you may want to consider employing IRIG-B time codes.
This PTP-enabled solution is simple, affordable and completely scalable, from a few devices to the largest installation. Now engineers can expect more from their investment in power monitoring and know what happened and when - to one millisecond - and without all the extra wires.
