The ES-971 is a timecode display featuring bright 7-inch, four-digit LED displays, with red, green and blue (shown) available. The unit is housed in a black-textured aluminum wall-mount enclosure. The ES-971 accepts, via a rear-mounted terminal block, either ESE Time Code or SMPTE/EBU timecode (time of day only) or RS-232C ASCII timecode. The ES-971 automatically determines which code is being received. If the time zone option is ordered, a rear-accessible DIP switch is installed for this function. A six-digit model, ES-976, is also available.

The ES-150U is a master clock switcher that monitors ESE and SMPTE/EBU timecodes. Master clock switchers are used with a primary master clock (“A”) and a secondary master clock (“B”), they provide a convenient way of switching to the secondary master clock if a problem develops with the primary master clock.

The ES-71 converts SMPTE/EBU LTC code or ESE Time Code to a USB interface. The device is powered by the USB interface and is intended for computer time synchronization. The unit features four modes of operation, which may be selected by DIP switch or by software.

The ES-217/BNC and ES-246/BNC are products for distributing timecode throughout a master clock system to equipment that accepts SMPTE-LTC timecode. Housed in a small die-cast box, the ES-217/BNC provides 1x4 distribution. The ES-246/BNC offers a quad 1x6 configuration in a single RU. All inputs/outputs are supplied on BNC connectors.
