    Configuring Multiservice IRIG-B Mode Port Parameters for CTP Bundles (CTPView)

    Before you begin:

    • Log in to the CTPView software at least at the Net_Admin level.
    • Connect the CTPView server to the CTP device for which you want to configure bundles.

    To configure Multiservice IRIG-B mode port parameters using CTPView:

    1. In the side pane, select Bundle > Configuration.
    2. Run your mouse over the Display and Select an Existing Bundle bar.
    3. In the table of bundles, select the bundle that you want to modify.
    4. Under Bundle Options, configure the parameters as described in Table 1 and click Click to Submit Bundle AND Port Changes.

    Table 1: CTP Bundle Multiservice IRIG-B Port Parameter Settings in CTPView

    FieldFunctionYour Action

    Port Description

    Specifies a description for the port.

    Enter a description of up to 64 alphanumeric characters. Do not use the following characters:

    ( ; ' " ) ]

    I/F Type

    Specifies the daughter card as the interface type.

    Select DCARD.

    Multi-Service Mode

    Specifies that the bundle will run in IRIG-B mode.

    Select IRIG-B.

    IRIG-B Source

    Specifies the direction of the circuit. Although the IP circuit connection through the network is full duplex, an IRIG-B circuit is a simplex application, and the interface can operate only in Rx or Tx mode and not both at the same time.

    (Although the bundle is by default a full duplex IP connection, you can configure it for simplex to save network bandwidth.)

    Select one:

    • TX (signal enters CTP)—The end of the circuit that accepts IP packets, extracts the IRIG-B data codes, and transmits IRIG-B signaling output onto the cable.
    • RX (signal exits CTP)—The end of the circuit that recovers IRIG-B from the attached cable and generates IP packets toward the network.

    IRIG-B Data Rate

    Specifies the data rate on the IP connection.

    Note the following about setting the IRIG rate:

    • Unless network bandwidth is at a premium, we do not recommend that you change this value from the default of 16,000 bps.
    • Although the IRIG information can be transported through the network at the minimum configured rate (1000 bps), a CTP bundle running at this rate is subject to high latency.

    Enter a number from 1000 through 25,500 bps. The port speed must be a multiple of 100 bps.

    Output High Volts Level

    This option appears only if you set the direction of the port to Tx.

    Specifies the high output level, which is measured in peak-to-peak voltage. This setting is based on a 50-ohm termination

    Enter a number from 0.00 through 7.85 volts peak-to-peak.

    Output Low Volts Level

    This option appears only if you set the direction of the port to Tx.

    Specifies the low output level, which is measured in peak-to-peak voltage. This setting is based on a 50-ohm termination.

    Enter a number from 0.00 through 7.85 volts peak-to-peak.
