GPS Time Sync—STR-100 Satellite Time Reference

The STR-100 Satellite Time Reference is a microprocessor-based device that accepts GPS time signals from a smart antenna or receiver and outputs a time synchronization signal to power system devices for sequence of events recording (SER) applications. The GPS time source may be a Trimble Acutime™ GG GPS “smart antenna” or an amplitude-modulated IRIG-B signal. The STR converts this time data to a DCF77 or 1per10 protocol signal to provide time synchronization for up to 32 devices, including PowerLogic meters and Sepam relays by Schneider Electric, Eaton and Siemens.

Markets/Applications:

Data Centers

The STR-100 Satellite Time Reference distributes precision time signals to monitoring devices in modern data center Electrical Power Monitoring Systems (EPMS). Outputs include IRIG-B (DCLS), DCF77 and 1per10. [ More ]

Power SCADA for Process Industries

The STR-100 Satellite Time Reference distributes precision time signals to relays, meters, PLCs and event recorders in supervisory control and data acquisition systems in continuous processes such as refineries and water treatment plants. [ More ]

Micro-Grid and Alternative Energy

The STR-100 Satellite Time Reference distributes precision time signals to devices in micro-grids and alternative energy networks, such as wind, solar and fuel cells. [ More ]

Accurate time synchronization.  Outputs time signal with an accuracy of +/- 50 microseconds.

Versatile.  IRIG-B and DCF77 are widely used in electric utility, industrial, healthcare and data center applications for sequence of events recording.

IRIG-B Distribution Enhanced.  The optional STR-IDM simplifies wiring of IRIG-B time synchronization signals and allows daisy-chain topology to save cable and labor costs.  Used with the PLX-24V or STR-100/ IRIG-B Satellite Time Reference, the IDM enables the distribution of an IRIG-B signal over long distances and to multiple devices (up to 8 devices per IDM).
