  • Page 13: Theory Of Operation

    The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based navigation system that is used as the master time source for clock timing signals published by the MultiSync 100 GPS Clock. Each satellite contains an atomic clock, and each satellite publishes a navigation message, including the clock time, at six second intervals via a spread spectrum carrier.

    A significant part of the 100 bits in an IRIG-B frame are Binary Coded Data (BCD) that defines the actual time. The BCD time-of-year (BCDTOY) indicates seconds, minutes, and hours from midnight, recycling daily, and days from January 1st, recycling yearly.

    Unmodulated IRIG-B is also known as DC Level Shift (DCLS). An IRIG-B clock using DCLS only produces an output to produce a pulse, and the pulse is a constant magnitude. The length of the output determines a logical 0, logical 1, or position identifier. The output value MULTISYNC 100 GPS CLOCK – INSTRUCTION MANUAL...

    IRIG-B in the MultiSync 100 1588 GPS Clock The MultiSync 100 has two TTL (coaxial) output ports, each of which can be configured to provide an IRIG-B time signal, independent of the other port. The MultiSync 100 supports both DC Level Shift and Modified Manchester time codes.

  • Page 18: Irig-b Wiring Considerations

    CHAPTER 2: THEORY OF OPERATION IRIG-B wiring considerations DC Level Shift IRIG time code in the MultiSync 100 is developed at a level of approximately 5 volts peak. This signal is normally distributed using copper wiring, however, in the case of the MultiSync 100 the TTL outputs are coaxial with BNC connectors.

  • Page 19: Ntp/sntp In The Multisync 100

    IEEE 1588 / PTP / C37.238 NTP/SNTP in the MultiSync 100 The MultiSync 100 can act as an NTP or SNTP server, and is intended to be an NTP Stratum- 1 time server. The MultiSync 100 synchronizes to GPS to provide accurate timing signals, and NTP time signals are published through the clock Ethernet port.

    The figure shows a possible PTP synchronization network topology. The grandmaster clock is the primary time source, a boundary clock creates segmented synchronization subdomains, and ordinary clocks synchronize to the boundary clock through end-to-end transparent clocks.

    (to a master or grandmaster clock) and all other ports of the boundary clock are asserted as masters to their domain. Therefore, a boundary clock will carry time through an Ethernet switch, and will continue to carry time if the master clock source is lost. MULTISYNC 100 GPS CLOCK – INSTRUCTION MANUAL...

    IRIG-B replacement mode. 1588 and C37.238 in the MultiSync 100 The MultiSync 100 GPS Clock is intended to operate as a Grandmaster Clock or an Ordinary Clock on 1588 networks. The MultiSync 100 supports both 1588v2 and C37.238. The 1588v2 implementation is configurable for end-to-end and peer-to-peer networks, or to implement the C37.238 Power Profile.
