ESE NTP Referenced Master Clock with Timecode Generator & NTP Server

BH #ES188ENTP6 • MFR #ES-188E-NTP6
ESE NTP Referenced Master Clock with Timecode Generator & NTP Server
Key Features
  • SMPTE-LTC/EBU, IRIG-B, Timecode Outputs
  • Front-Panel 9-Digit Yellow LED Display
  • NTP In (RJ45, IPv6) & NTP Out via RJ45
The NTP Referenced Master Clock with Timecode Generator & NTP Server from ESE displays nine digits (Day of Year, Hour, Minute and Second) of time as received via a user selected NTP server. Simultaneously, the ES-188E generates several types of time code including SMPTE LTC, ESE-TC89, ESE-TC90, ASCII (RS-232C & USB), EBU, IRIG-B and a 1PPS signal. These outputs allow the ES-188E to easily interface with new or existing computers, automation and clock systems. The NTP Server capability allows clients to reference the local ES-188E/NTP6 server while being isolated from the internet.

ESE ES-188 NTP Overview

The NTP Referenced Master Clock with Timecode Generator & NTP Server from ESE displays nine digits (Day of Year, Hour, Minute and Second) of time as received via a user selected NTP server. Simultaneously, the ES-188E generates several types of time code including SMPTE LTC, ESE-TC89, ESE-TC90, ASCII (RS-232C & USB), EBU, IRIG-B and a 1PPS signal. These outputs allow the ES-188E to easily interface with new or existing computers, automation and clock systems. The NTP Server capability allows clients to reference the local ES-188E/NTP6 server while being isolated from the internet.

Software supplied with the ES-188E/NTP6 permits users to continuously update a computer's Windows' clock to the time available on the USB port. Other features allow the user to select SMPTE mode (DF, NDF, EBU & Real Time), offset the Time Zone displayed and output by the ES-188E/NTP6 and advance or delay the time output for various synchronizing purposes.

A user may find the ES-188E/NTP6 particularly beneficial if: 1) The user has trouble getting a reliable GPS Signal into a facility, such as a basement or a building with metallic coating on the windows; 2) The user has trouble getting an antenna to the outside of a facility, because the cable run will be too expensive or the facility cannot be modified, which is the case with many historical buildings or 3) A facility needs to be time synchronized to a remote location through NTP, for example, universities with multiple campuses or NPR affiliate stations. The dual battery backup provides a Coin Cell for backing up the User settings, and a Gel-Cell for a 4-hour operational backup. The ESE and ASCII outputs are operational when running on battery.

I want to send this signal to clocks on my cameras, and to the clock in the booth. But which clocks will work with this?
Asked by: Dustin
this device outputs SMPTE-LTC/EBU, ESE, IRIG-B, ASCII (RS-232 & USB) Time Code Outputs and can be fed to any devices that accept these time code formats. This unit is designed for broadcast scenarios that require GPS for their Precision Timing needs,they use the ES-188 for the precision & accuracy of GPS-based time without a GPS signal!
