System Controllers

Model #DescriptionUnique Features
JTEMC (1412413)When sync to the internal GPS, 1PPS, or IRIG B the JTEMC may be set to perform as a local PTP Master Clock and sync up to 10 devices. Can provide automated switchover. Programmable sync packet rate. Low drift. There is an array of optional daughter I/O cards that provide time code signals for that may be used to synchronize other devices and provide phase locked and programmable frequency outputs. Eon also offers ODM design services to deliver custom I/O daughter cards the meet specific and unique needs.10/100/1000 Ethernet Control, status interface. Up to 10 concurrent client connections. Adjust all settings (command set), query time. Webserver to adjust all settings, display time and status. PC104 form factor.
MJTE (1700264)The MITS Janus Time Engine (MJTE) consists of a two-board set. 1 -The Janus Time Engine Master Controller (JTEMC), part number 1412413. 2 - Photo-Sonics Interface (PSI/O) daughter board part number 1412414. There is a stack interface connector between the two boards. The GigE interface present on the JTEMC the I/O is used to control and receive status from the MJTE. Similarly, it provides the control and status for the embedded webserver functions. Photo-Sonics Interface (PSI/O) controls the data received from the JTE Master Controller I/O Interface to ensure properly synchronized timing and frequency outputs. The PSI/O also receives differential 1PPS and B00x signals and delivers them to the JTE Master Controller for time master synchronization.10/100/1000 Ethernet Control, status interface. Up to 10 concurrent client connections. Adjust all settings (command set), query time. Webserver to adjust all settings, display time and status. PC104 form factor. The PSI/O provides multiple time outputs that are to be simultaneously available each aligned to the time master.

Specialty Products

Model #DescriptionUnique Features
6314Tailored to meet the requirements of the Weapon Impact Scoring System (WISS) for NAVAIR and ACC training ranges. The primary function of the HD Video Coordinate Digitizer (VCD) is to quantize points of interest on a split screen video raster. While the VCD will work with any SMPTE 292M (720p/60 or 1080i/60) or 424M HD-SDI (1080p/60; 3G) video streams, many of the features rely on specialized metadata of the input stream to accomplish the intended function. This specialized metadata and video splitting function is performed by the ITS 6316 Video Concentrator Multiplexor (VCM).When used with the VCM, the VCD recognizes any video splits present and will auto size the Dynamic Control Cursor.
6316General features of the Video Concentrator Multiplexor (VCM) have been tailored to meet the requirements of the Weapon Impact Scoring System (WISS) for NAVAIR and ACC training ranges. Receives up to 4 independent channels of SD-SDI video per SMPTE 259M and HD-SDI video per SMPTE 292 (1.5 GB/sec data for 720p and 1080i) and SMPTE 424M (3 GB/sec for 1080p) that maybe of any of the following SMPTE 296M or SMPTE 274M (720p/1080i or 1080p (3G) respectively) formats. Luminance and color encoding: 4:2:2 encoding. Frame rates, 29.97, 30, 59.94, 60 per second. Any of these video payloads may be applied to any input channel at any time and the VCM will synchronize to it and decode it.
