  • Overview
    The Denecke Syncbox® Dcode® SB-3 is designed to replace the Dcode SB-2A in the Denecke line of Time Code Generators. The SB-3 reads, generates and jams to all the standard frame rates including 23.976 for High Definition shoots. The outputs include Time Code and Word Clock. The Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) ensures low drift and very low Word Clock jitter.

    The Denecke SB-3 generates all common SMPTE Time Code and Word Clock rates which are both locked to the same 1ppm TCXO. The Word Clock signal has very low jitter and is extremely stable. To turn the unit on, simply press the push button. Two AA batteries power the SB-3. The green LED will indicate the battery status. Two flashes per second = battery low, and three flashes per second = battery dead. The batteries should be replaced as soon as possible when dead battery is indicated (approximately 30 minutes of run time).

    The LED also indicates whether the SB-3 is in jam sync mode or in internal run mode. The sync LED flashes once per second (at the start of the frame 00) when in jam sync mode or if the SB-3 has been running in internal run mode for 1 minute. Note that the Time Code rate and mode switches are locked out to prevent accidental change of the settings and the unit must be powered down for different switch setting to take affect. The SB-3 features an automatic jam sync capability, which re-jams to any break in Time Code without the need to power down. The jam occurs at the 00 frame so cross jamming of different rates can be accomplished.

    Features:
    • Generates Word Clock in 44.1 KHz, 48 KHz, 96 KHz and 192 KHz, as well as all standard time code rates
    • Cross jam regardless of incoming frame rates
    • Generates all common SMPTE Time Code frame rates
    • Jam from an external time code source or set it internally and use as a stand alone generator
    • Continuously jams to new code so there is no need to power down the unit to re-jam
    • Runs on 2 AA batteries
    • Simple to set up
    • Very low Word Clock jitter locked to the high stability crystal (TCXO)
    • Low and Dead battery warning


    Specifications:
    • Input: -15dB @ 4.7K; 1/8" mini phone jack
    • TCXO Crystal: +/- 1PPM @ -30° to +75° C
    • Battery Power: 2 Alkaline "AA" Batteries
    • Battery Life: 20+ Hours
    • Size: 3.75" x 2.79" x 1.06"
    • Weight: .50 pounds (with batteries)
    • External Power: N/A
    • WC Out: 3.3 VP-P (no Load), 2.4 VP-P (75 R Load)
