Precision network timing for the  power utility industry

Discover Tekron solutions

Essential to power generation and distribution's critical infrastructure is the utilization of Position Navigation and Timing (PNT) services offered by the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). The modern smart grid, characterized by its highly distributed architecture, relies on precise timing for the coordination, protection, and control of systems.

Additionally, power utility operators depend on GNSS timing services for secure network communications, ensuring the delivery of critical time information for event monitoring and logging. Tekron International, now a part of Microchip, enhances the portfolio of proven timing solutions for the power industry.

Tekron TCG 01-G

The TCG 01-G is a highly accurate, fully featured GPS and GLONASS (GNSS) clock. With enhanced cyber security features that support NERC CIP requirements, the TCG 01-G is designed for use in modern day smart grid / smart substations, electricity distribution, transmission, generation protection and control systems. The clock synchronizes multiple IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) within a network, including protection relays and remote telemetry units to enable accurate time stamping. The TCG 01-G supports IEEE 1588 v2 (PTP) and IEC 61850.

Tekron TTM 01-G

The TTM 01-G is a reliable and accurate GPS and GLONASS (GNSS) clock with sub-microsecond timing that is used to synchronize IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) in the power industry and other industries where precise and reliable timing is required. As with all Tekron GPS clocks, the TTM 01-G has electrically isolated outputs, providing excellent noise immunity. The TTM 01-G supports both NTP/SNTP and PTP (IEEE 1588v2).

Tekron NTS 02-G

The NTS 02-G is a high precision, 3 port GNSS (GPS/ GLONASS) referenced NTP, SNTP and PTP (IEEE1588v2) Grand master or Boundary clock that provides secure, accurate and reliable time synchronization to enterprise networks.

Tekron NTS 03-G

The NTS 03-G Plus is a fully customizable satellite reference clock. It meets the demanding precision and reliability requirements of the Power, Telecommunications and Enterprise sectors.

ITR: Isolated Timing Repeater

The Isolated Timing Repeater is the Swiss Army Knife of time sync. It's a compact DIN rail mountable signal repeater that performs a number of tasks including converting time sync signals, boosting signal strengths and converting one type of signal to another. The ITR is completely electrically isolated and it will provide your IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Devices) with an additional layer of electrical protection.

Tekron PTP Translator

Tekron's PTP Translator is a compact DIN-rail mount device that translates PTP (default, power and telecommunications profiles) to legacy time codes such as IRIG-B, DCF77 or user defined pulses. The PTP Translator enables you to migrate to PTP without having to incur the expense of replacing all your equipment that doesn’t support PTP.
