The SBOX-2RF is an accurate, compact, and affordable time code and word clock generator with RF transmission for continuous wireless jamming of time code with 0 ppm error and clear status information of all devices connected to the network. It improves the sync precision of its ancestor, while keeping very easy to use plug and play operation control and a 1" large OLED display.
The operating range is up to 500m within the line of sight. The RF protocol incorporates frequency-hopping spread spectrum technology approach forrobust functionality even in a noisy RF environment. When a unit set as receiver is out of RF range, it keeps generating synced time code.
The SBOX-2RF can receive, precisely jam, or start to generate new time codes of all existing SMPTE time code formats. All commonly used word clock formats are supported, including their pull-up and pull-down options.
The automatic turn on and jamming function provides user-friendly and reliable time code syncing that can automatically distinguish correct time code format, calibrate internal TCXO to obtain the same time base as your source, and start generating jammed time code.
The TCXO is well suited for changing environmental and temperature conditions, even in extreme weather conditions. The embedded high precision, temperature compensated crystal oscillator TCXO keeps stable time code and word clock with 0.2 ppm accuracy. Even after two days of continuous use, the sync will drift less than half a frame.
The ultra-highly accurate TCXO can be further calibrated to achieve much better than 0.2 ppm accuracy. These methods can be applied both during jamming, when TCXO is calibrated to obtain exactly the same time base as the source of time code, or during calibration, from BETSO GPS-1 devices which offer calibrating based on GPS atomic clocks.
Thanks to precise CNC milling manufacturing technology, anodized aluminium alloy materials, original hi-quality connectors and other components, the SBOX-2RF is very durable, while still light and smell enough to be easily mounted on most cameras.
