Product Description

The Model TS-101 is a portable and rugged test set that measures an external time signal (PTP, IRIG-B or 1PPS) to UTC via a GPS Synchronized Receiver. Once synchronized to GPS the first measurement is instantaneous and can continue to be made whether or not the TS-101 is synchronized to GPS. Measurements can be made to a resolution of less than 1 microsecond.

The TS-101 can also be synchronized by an external IRIG-B or 1PPS to measure the relative synchronization between two external time sources.

Comprising a fully functional TimeTap Grandmaster (model TTGM-101) and TimeTap (model TT-101), this test set also functions as a Synchronized Time Code Generator with PTP Grandmaster and slave capabilities.

The TS-101 is powered through a provided AC Adapter, an external USB connection from a laptop or other similar source or an external battery.
