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.
With the proper distribution amplifiers, such as the TCA100, time code can be sent over long distances and connected in parallel to hundreds of clocks and other devices. It is generally an inexpensive, robust and reliable means of distributing time and date around a local plant or operation.
