IRIG-B provides accurate timing for internal clocks and systems to timestamp events in aerospace, utilities and control systems, so verifying IRIG-B performance is very important as it is the reference for mission critical applications.
SNMP is a powerful yet simple solution to remote control, automation and management. The Net.Time family is compatible with SNMP versions 2c and 3 allowing for a full range of applications in scenarios of different complexities.
Net.Time φ is compatible with the PTP Utility Profile (IEC 61850-9-3) and PRP (IEC 62439-3). These protocols are great when they work together offering the failsafe, accurate timing over required in digital substation applications.
The frequency holdover or partial holdover function is an example of how frequency references could be used in phase & time synchronization. This Net.Time feature provides nanosecond accuracy for a long time when GNSS or PTP references are lost.
The accuracy of a watch depends on the application. Anyone who wants to catch a train has to have an eye on the minutes. In competitive sport, a hundredth of a second can be decisive and a packaging machine may need microsecond accuracy.
