The Model 100A is a highly stable battery powered

multi-standard portable sync generator.

Based upon a 1 part per million TCXO,

this 6 standard sync generator can operate for 24 hours on one battery.

Weighing only grams and measuring 2 ½ inches wide,

4 inches long and ¾ inch deep,

this unit is ideal for

weight and size constrained applications.

The unit outputs composite video black but may be

strapped internally to output V drive instead.

The 24 hour operational time of the 100A is accomplished

by using the latest 9V Lithium batteries.

While the 100A will operate for approximately 2 hours using

100mA-hour Alkaline batteries,

the Lithium cells deliver 1200mA-hours and

approximately 24 hours of operation.

See the accompanying battery information sheet for

sales locations and price.

The 100A should always be fine-tuned to match

the drift of the main sync generator.

Always allow at least 30 minutes of warm-up time for

both the main sync generator and the 100A

before performing the fine-tuning procedure.

The procedure is the same as is used on the Ping system.

The 100A power/control cable plugs into the same plug and

uses the same Palm Pilot commands as the Ping system.

The 100A includes an LED for status indication.

This LED is a Red/Green type.

When the 100A is powered up either through the

power/control cable or by inserting a battery,

the Red LED is illuminated.

This signifies that the 100A is operational and outputting

a signal

at the video standard last programmed into the unit.

For example, if the last output signal was video black at 24.00FPS,

the Red LED indicates that once again the unit is

outputting video black at 24.00FPS.

If the 100A is vertically reset using the Ping system,

the LED will flash between Red and Green during there-phasing and stay

Green once the re-phase is completed.

This lets you know that the 100A is poweredup, operational,

and re-phased since power-up.

The unit may be powered externally to increase battery life.

The output sync timing may be adjusted with extreme precision

to match the rate of another sync generator.

The unit may then be vertically re-phased to match the

phase of that sync generator.

These functions areprovided through the included power/control cable.

Video standard selection, output timing adjustment,and vertical

re-phasing are accomplished using RS-232 serial data commands.

These commands may begenerated by a laptop, palm pilot,

or dedicated hardware device.

The 100A system includes the 100A itself,

a power/control cable(9 pin D-type to Hirose 6 pin),

output cable(RCA to Male BNC),

output adapter(RCA to Female BNC) and 9V Lithium batteries(qty. 4).

It is suggested to place an order for more Lithium batteries before the need arises.
