    ELC - Overview

    If you're looking for a stand alone product to send linear timecode over an ethernet network, the Plura ELC will help you accomplish it. ELC serves as an LTC generator with two output stages. The data content within the LTC time code is either fed from an NTP server or an MTDoE master device. Both LTC output signals are phase locked to UTC time which is available as well in NTP mode as in MTDoE mode. Time addresses as well as user data (binary groups) of the LTC can be independently configured and generated.

    • Features:

      • PoE power supply.
      • Connectors: 1 x RJ45 for Ethernet/PoE, 2 x RJ45 for LTC outputs.
      • Set-up and firmware update possible via the "UD SC Config" program.
      • Set-up and status display possible via the integrated Ethernet server.
      • All settings will be stored at a non-volatile memory, so the latest set-up will not get lost if ELC was powered off.
      • Frame rate of LTC outputs selectable: 24/25/30/29.97 frames per second.
      • LTC signal level adjustable for each output separately.
      • Source = NTP:
      • One "Primary" and one "Secondary" NTP Server can be addressed.
      • Various date formats can be transported in the binary groups (user data) of the LTC.
      • Based on UTC received from the NTP Server, ELC can output a time & date LTC of any time zone, with or without Daylight Saving Time switching.
      • Source = MTD:
      • Selectable MTDoE group.
      • Time addresses of LTC can be a local real-time or a time of any MTD counter.
      • A date can be transported in the binary groups (user data) of the LTC.
    • Specifications:

      • Converts all SPT/MTDoE timers into LTC
      • Converts NTP into LTC
      • Generates two individual LTC outputs
      • Turns any Multiviewer or TC-display with an LTC input into a timer display
      • PoE is supported
      • Cost effective portable solution
      • The ELC is a distribution amplifier and converter with one ethernet input and two LTC outputs on RJ45 jacks.
      • Both of the outputs have their own drivers and are individually configurable.
      • Each output signal is phase locked and synchronized to the ethernet reference input.
      • NTP time and date are decoded.
      • In the NTP reading mode, each outgoing LTC can be adjusted with a different offset.
      • MTDoE or SPT timers can be converted into independent LTC signals.
      • Any third-party Time Code displays with LTC input are able to utilized with the MTDoE timer system.
      • Due to PoE capability, an external power supply isn't necessary.
      • The power distribution is accomodated by the network switch.
      • LEDs indicate the operating status.
    • Warranty:

      • 2 Years
