The TCR-295-10 provides a large, easy to read visual display of IRIG-B, IRIG-CS3, MILA/KSC, FDME/BUDX, and IRIG-CS5 time and countdown codes.

The TCR-295-10 has been designed to automatically select and display IRIG-B, KSC/MILA, IRIG-CS3 and FDME/BUDX analog time codes. It also displays IRIG CS-5246, CS-5247, CS-5248 and DGM ASCII countdown formats (from our CDG-4000 Countdown Generator). Two digital inputs are provided. One for RS-232 voltage level data and the other for RS-422 level data. A DIP switch on the rear panel is used to select between the analog or digital codes.

The time code is displayed on a large easy to read 9 digit, 2.3" high LED display with lighted colons. Hi-efficiency LEDs are used to provide excellent visibility even in brightly lighted areas. The intensity of the display can be adjusted with a rear panel mounted intensity control. A plus sign is displayed for positive counts while a minus sign is displayed for negative counts. A separate indicator in the upper left of the display, displays an H for hold, P for predicted launch time and an A for actual launch time. These times are available with IRIG-CS3 and IRIG-CS5 formats and are selected using the rear panel DIP switch.

This display will work with our CDG-4000 Countdown Generator to display one of 18 different countdown times. The time to be displayed is selected by an address switch on the rear panel.

The analog input circuitry of the TCR-295-10 contains an automatic gain circuit to allow the unit to reliably copy a wide range of signal levels. The input is transformer isolated providing excellant common mode noise rejection.The software processing of the countdown and time code signals are processed to provide a reliable read out of the received time code. Automatic display blanking is provided when the input signal is lost or when the time code is corrupted. The unit is housed in a rugged, attractive aluminum enclosure and is powered by 115 VAC. A wall / ceiling mounting bracket is included for easy installation. The TCR-295-10 is covered by our 1 year warranty.
