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.
Masterclock’s new 6-digit multi-color digital clock, the LUX26, includes an array of state-of-the-art features that outperform other digital clocks on the market. The 2.3-in (5.8 cm) kaleidoscopic LED display can be configured to any unlimited number of custom colors. It can also sync to a Network Time Protocol (NTP), Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP), or time code* (*optional) source for accurate time, as well as be configured to any time zone offset or Daylight Saving Time parameters. Never miss out on a DST change again!
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.
