Tekron’s Isolated Timing Repeater is 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 Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) with an additional layer of electrical protection.
When a fault occurs and breakers trip in a substation, the electrical interference can disrupt signals. That could be exactly the moment you need your timing network to be up and running so you have an accurate sequence of events. The solution is isolation which gives perfect electrical isolation between the cabinets, protecting against earth fault conditions or cabinet related electrical faults. With fibre being used outside of the cabinets, any radiated noise on the IRIG-B signals is eliminated, reducing the chance of timing errors due to corrupt IRIG-B signals.
The final benefit is that the master clock can be much simpler, with only a few outputs required to sync an entire installation. This reduces the master clock cost and removes multiple long cable runs from the clock, making for a tidy cable tray.
