Radio Systems, Inc.

Radio Systems’ CT-2002 models are an advanced, yet economical line of digital microprocessor controlled clocks and timers.

All units function as stand-alone clocks and timers or can be incorporated in asynchronized, serially controlled master/slave clock system, referenced by GPS, Top-of-Hour, or SMPTE time code master generators.

• Simultaneous clock/up-timer on all models
• All units may function as a remote timer display
• High Intensity .56”, 2.3” and 4" LED displays
• Thin, Desktop, Wall and Rack mount models
• Reliable, RF-immune RS-422 serial data interface
• GPS, SMPTE & OCXO reference options
• Local & parallel remote control
• Optional I/R remote control for down timing and special programming on slave models

Accessories and Parts

CT-SYNC

This hardware and software kit allows a PC’s time base to be updated via RS serial time code, OR allows a PC’s time base to output RS serial time code. Connection to the PC is via USB and connection to CT-2002 is via two wire twisted pair serial cable.
The kit includes a USB to RS422 converter and software.
One included software program installs in any Windows 2000 or higher OS and automatically updates the Windows time base with CT-2002 serial time. A second software program included installs in any Windows 2000 or higher OS and automatically updates the CT-2002 clock system from the PC time base.
Hours, minutes and seconds offset can be set manually via the software
configuration screens or in the CT-2002 software.

GPS-SYNC

This hardware and software kit allows time code received directly from GPS antenna to be read into a PC COMM (RS232 serial) port.
The kit includes an antenna, antenna outdoor mount, 12ft. connectorized serial cable, power supply and interface box, and software. A 150ft. extension cable is available as well as RS-485 for extended cable runs up to 500ft.
Included software installs in any Windows 2000 or higher OS and automatically updates the Windows time base with GPS accurate time. Hours, minutes and seconds offset can be set manually by software configuration screens.

CT-150CABLE - 150ft. Extension Cable

150ft. of shielded CAT-5 cable with “biscuit” style RJ-45 termination boxes at each end. GPS antenna plugs into far side and near is connected to GPS clock via an RJ-45 patch cable (provided.)

Note: This cable may be shortened by the customer, but 150ft. is the maximum distance that the antenna cable may be extended without the use of the active RS-485 converter kit.

CT-250CABLE - 250ft. Active Extension Kit

250ft. of shielded CAT-5 cable with active RS-232 to RS-485 extender ‘biscuits”. GPS antenna plugs into far side and near is connected to GPS clock via an RJ-45 patch cable (provided.) Converter biscuits are active and powered via the GPS clock power supply.
Note: The antenna side RS-232 converter is not in a water-proof box and must be housed indoors or in a protective closure.


CT-IR

I/R remote control
Included with Desktop, 2 Inch and 4 Inch models for entering down timing and special programming of slave models.
Included with all models (except CT2002 Thin) and available separately as a replacement.

GPS Antenna

GPS Antenna in weatherproof mount and integral 20'. CAT-5 cable.
Included with all desktop, 2” & 4” GPS models. Included with all GPS models and available separately as a replacement.

CT-RACKLG

Rack mount for the CT-2INCH
(3 r.u.)

CT-RACKSM

Rack mount for the Desktop and Thin Models (2 r.u.)
