NTP100-TC Time Code Server

The NTP100-TC is an NTP time server that synchronizes to a time code source and converts the signal to Network Time Protocol. It automatically detects the  incoming time code source; long-term accuracy is the same as the  external source.  With loss of time code, the device will revert to an internal oscillator with accuracy of better than 165 msec/day. 


  • Converts time code to NTP
  • NTP output accuracy of ± 2 ms
  • Time stamp precision of  5-10  ms
  • Time server synchronized to your existing IRIG or SMPTE time code source
  • Automatically detects time code source
    • SMPTE (30/25/25 fps), Leitch Date Encoding Standard
    • IRIG-B pulse width coded (unmodulated) DC, IEEE 1344 standard
    • IRIG-B(1) 1 kHz Amplitude Modulated, IEEE 1344 standard
  • NTP query (Unicast), Multicast or Broadcast modes
  • Assignable network configuration
  • Configuration via Telnet/SSH or included WinDiscovery 
  • IPv4/IPv6 compatible
  • MD5 authentication


Holdover Accuracy  

  • With loss of power or reference, device reverts to an internal precision TCXO temperature-compensated crystal oscillator with accuracy of ± 1min/year or < 165ms per day
  • High-stability option with OCXO provides typical stability of 1 ppb/day or ± 250ms/year

Rack Mount  


  •  RJ45 - 10/100MB Ethernet
  • DC input - 2.1 mm male jack
  • 3-pin terminal block (differential time code input)
  • BNC (single-ended time code input)
  • USB for configuration

Power Supply  

  • DC input (9-28 VDC)  
  • Power consumption: <7.5W  
  • Includes an external 24 VDC wall mount power supply with locking DC plug, UL & CE listed.  Supplied with your choice of US, Euro, British or AUS/NZ plug - others optionally available. 


Network Compatibility  

  • NTP unicast, multicast, or broadcast mode
  • Supports:
    • NTP v2 (RFC 1119)
    • NTP v3 (RFC 1306) 
    • NTP v4 (RFC 5905)
  • DHCPv4, DHCPv6 for automatic acquisition of network address, name servers, and timeserver configuration
  • Telnet/SSH communication 
  • IPv4/IPv6 compatible
  • SNMP with custom MIB


  • Provides dynamic configuration for networking parameters
  • Network discovery tool provides automatic discovery of NTP devices attached to network without changing PC’s networking configuration
  • Configuration is saved to non-volatile memory and survives power losses
  • Authenticated network messages prevent unauthorized tampering of clock configuration
