IBU 160i : Programmable Time Code Distribution

The IBU-160i is a quality, remotely programmable Time code distribution unit (100Hz - 100 KHz ) with dual redundant hot swap PSUs.  Applications include test ranges, satellite control centres, shipboard time distribution, airports, rail terminals.

The IBU-160i is a high quality, remotely programmable Timecode distribution unit (100Hz - 100 KHz ) with dual redundant hot swap PSUs.  Applications for the IBU-160i include test ranges, satellite control centres, shipboard time distribution, airports, rail terminals, and any system requiring highly reliable time code distribution.

The IBU-160i base unit model has sixteen short circuit proof wide band outputs grouped as 2 banks of 8, available at the rear panel via BNC connectors, driven in response to one of two independent and isolated (Timecode A & Timecode B) signal source inputs.  Each Timecode input is capable of driving all 16 outputs.

Each output has a network programmable Timecode source assignment and amplitude setting along with fully independent status checking and fault condition reporting via the SNMPv2c trap based network interface and rear panel D type connectors.  

Once selected, Timecode signal sources are automatically switched over should a reference Timecode fail, while a three-position front panel switch facilitates the manual override selection of either Timecode A or Timecode B. With automatic mode selected, each output will be driven by the programmatically assigned reference.

Front panel indicators show the status of the input selection and output condition along with power status indication. Each of the sixteen outputs is continually monitored and should an output fail for any reason, then a group alarm fault indicator will illuminate and trigger a rear panel fault alarm signal that may be used by external equipment to modify the reference and output signal routing and selection.

The unit has a built in user friendly web based SNTP server interface available via an RJ45 10/100BaseT rear panel network port facilitating unit setup and subsequent system monitoring.
