HAVE QUICK Output: Viewing Signal State

To quickly view if a HAVE QUICK Output is enabled or disabled, go to the option card’s Status Summary panel. For instructions, see: Viewing an Input/Output Signal State.

HAVE QUICK Output: Edit Window

To configure a HAVE QUICK Output, go to its Edit window. For instructions, see: Configuring Option Card Inputs/Outputs.

The Web UI list entries for this card are: HAVE QUICK out, BNC and HAVE QUICK Out, RS-485.

The outputs are named: HQ Output [number].

Note: SecureSync starts numbering I/O ports with 0 (only 1PPS and 10 MHz outputs start at 1, because of the built-in outputs).

The Edit window allows the configuration of the following settings:

  • Signature Control: Signature Control is used to control when the HAVE QUICK modulation is present; see also Signature Control.
  • Format: Used to configure the formatting of the four available HAVE QUICK outputs. The available output formats are as follows:
    • STANAG 4246 HQ I
    • STANAG 4246 HQ II
    • STANAG 4372 HQ IIA
    • STANAG 4430 Ext HQ (Extended HAVE QUICK)
    • STANAG 4430 STM (Standard Time Message)
    • ICD-GPS-060A BCD
    • ICD-GPS-060A HQ
    • DOD-STD-1399 BCD
  • Timescale: Used to select the time base for the incoming time code data. The entered Timescale is used by the system to convert the time in the incoming data stream to UTC time for use by the System Time. The available choices are:
    • UTC: Coordinated Universal Time ("temps universel coordonné"), also referred to as ZULU time
    • TAI: Temps Atomique International
    • GPS: The raw GPS time as transmitted by the GNSS satellites (as of July, 2015, this is 17 seconds ahead of UTC time)
    • A local clock set up through the Time Management Page: This option will appear under the name of the local clock you have set up. Refer to The Time Management Screen for more information on how to configure and read the System Time. Local timescale allows a Local Clock to apply a time offset for Time Zone and DST correction.

The incoming input time information may be provided as local time, but System Time may be configured as UTC time, so internal computations need to be performed. With the Timescale field set to “Local”, select the name of a previously created Local Clock. The Time Zone and DST rules, as configured in the Local Clock will be applied to the front panel time display. See also .

  • Offset: Provides the ability to account for HAVE QUICK cable delays or other latencies in the HAVE QUICK outputs. The Offset values are entered in nanoseconds (ns). The available Offset range is –500 to +500 ms.

HAVE QUICK Output: Status Window

To view the current settings of a HAVE QUICK Output, go to its Status window. For instructions, see: Viewing Input/Output Configuration Settings.
