The ES-996U is a Time Code display featuring 2.3" high red LED displays. The unit is housed in a black-textured aluminum wall-mount enclosure (5" H x 15" W x 3.5" D). The unit accepts, via the rear-mounted terminal block (BNC connector on rack-panel units), either ESE Time Code (TC76, TC89, or TC90) or SMPTE/EBU Time Code (Time of Day only). RS-232C ASCII Time Code (format "0", "1" or "A" at 9600 baud) may be input via the rear-mounted 9-pin connector. The ES-996U will automatically determine which code is being received. A rear-mounted DIP switch is used to configure the display for 12 or 24 Hour format, or to display the Date instead of time-of-day (if incoming time code contains Date information, such as ESE TC90, date-encoded SMPTE/EBU or ASCII formats "1" or "A"). If the Time Zone option is ordered, a rear-accessible DIP switch is installed for this function. If receiving ESE Time Code from a timer, the unit will display Minutes, Seconds and Tenths of Seconds (if the timer has the Tenths option).
