TimeLink and its customer are often meeting the challenge of working with different time source and sometimes discrepancies between the sources can be misleading.
For instance when data logging events using low accuracy source like NTP, events can easily fall in the wrong second or the order of event can inverted.
Anyhow knowing how one time source stands compare to an external reference is key to make sure a time system is valid.
Multiple source of errors can happened like missing leap second, old GPS receiver shift …..
So the TME3000 connects to your time source whether it is an IRIGB signal, an NTP server, an NMEA/PPS signal and compare to a reference GNSS time source or another reference NTP server. Additionally, it compares all the different sources together.
Check its datasheet.
