The KAM/TCG/103 accepts time from three sources: a digital IRIG-B stream (RS-422 or TTL), its own onboard GPS receiver, or from ARINC-429 time labels (octal labels 260 and 150). It can be...
The KAM/TCG/105 can accept time from an IRIG-B time source, from its onboard GPS receiver (external antenna required), or from an external GPS receiver outputting NMEA messages and a one PPS...

The KAM/TCG/106 can accept time from an IRIG-B time source, from its onboard GPS receiver (external antenna required), or from an external GPS receiver outputting NMEA messages and a one PPS signal. The received time is written to an internal timer and to a Real-Time Clock (RTC) that maintains time during power-down (when an external battery is connected). The time can be used for synchronization of a distributed Acra KAM-500 data acquisition system. The module generates IRIG-B outputs to allow external devices to synchronize with the Acra KAM-500 system.
The module comprises a GPS reader and an IRIG reader which decode incoming signals. The IRIG reader extracts control functions and straight binary seconds as well as time. The GPS reader parses NMEA messages as they are generated by the receiver. Extracted navigation data such as position, altitude, velocity, and heading are available as individual parameters. The module can also be synchronized via NMEA messages being sent over RS-232 from a third party GPS or PC with granularity of one second.
The timer block is a 4 x 16-bit Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) counter with microsecond resolution. For example, at 1 μs before midnight on January 1, the timer would read 0001 23:59 59.99 9999.
