1: Overview and Features
Overview
Description
The standard XLi IEEE 1588 Clock, also referred to as the “XLi”, provides a complete implementation of
a Precise Time Protocol (PTP) “ordinary clock” over a dedicated IEEE 1588 card. The IEEE 1588 card
can be configured to operate as a PTP grandmaster or as a PTP slave.
2
As a PTP grandmaster, the IEEE 1588 card typically synchronizes PTP slaves on the network to
International Atomic Time (TAI). The XLi IEEE 1588 Clock derives TAI from the Global Positioning
System (GPS). In addition, Symmetricom designed the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock so the user can distribute
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or user-entered time over PTP.
1
As a PTP slave, the IEEE card automatically discovers a PTP master within its subnet/subdomain and
synchronizes to it. The PTP slave in turn, can be configured as the primary reference source for the XLi
IEEE 1588 Clock (the clock synchronizes to the PTP slave).
The XLi’s Time Interval/Event Time (TIET) feature can be used to measure PTP synchronization across
timing networks. For example, to measure a PTP slave’s synchronization to the PTP grandmaster, the
user connects the PPS output of a PTP slave to the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock and configures F110 to display
the time interval between each PPS.
See F130 - Precision Time Protocol Status (page 116) and F131 - Precision Time Protocol Network
Config (page 119) for more information.
Standard Configuration

GPS C/A Receiver (87-8028-2)
Introduction
The GPS C/A Receiver acts as a Stratum 0 timing reference source to the XLi. It tracks up to 12 L1 GPS
satellites, decodes their signals for time and position, and feeds this data to the XLi through the internal
backplane. When available and enabled, the GPS C/A Receiver card provides superior time and
frequency accuracy on the XLi (See “System Time & Frequency Accuracy” on page 10). The GPS C/A
Receiver card comes with an L1 GPS antenna, cabling, and mounting hardware unless otherwise
specified at the time of purchase.
The GPS C/A Receiver uses a TRAIM (Time Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) algorithm to
monitor the integrity of the receiver’s timing solution. Using redundant measurements, TRAIM detects
and quarantines anomalous GPS signals, independent of the GPS health ephemeris data. The
quarantined signal is excluded from the timing solution for 12 hours before it is requalified for inclusion in
the timing solution.
See “Installing the GPS Antenna” on page 15 for information on selecting an antenna site, mounting the
antenna, and signal strength requirements.
The GPS C/A Receiver card can be managed and configured using F53 – GPS Operation
Mode (page 58) and F119 – GPS Receiver Configuration (page 110).

Aux Ref Input
If an Aux Ref input is available and enabled, the XLi assumes that Aux Ref is a better frequency source
than its own oscillator. If a timing reference is not available (or becomes unavailable) and Aux Ref is
enabled, the XLi locks to the Aux Ref input. Under those conditions, frequency output accuracy is equal
to the reference < 1 x 10-12.
Note: To set the time and date manually, see “F3 – Time & Date” on page 40.

3: Installation and Set-up
In a nutshell:
•
Install the GPS antenna outdoors, run the cable, and connect it to the XLi’s GPS receiver.
•
Make the following connections to the XLi (all cables supplied):
- From the network to the NET port (for access to the command line and web interfaces).
- From an AC outlet to the XLi’s AC power supply.
•
Configure the network settings of the XLi’s standard network port.
•
Configure the network settings of the XLi’s IEEE 1588 network port.
2
Installing the GPS Antenna
Precise Time Protocol (PTP) grandmasters are typically synchronized to International Atomic Time (TAI).
To accomplish this, the user sets up the GPS antenna, connects it to the GPS receiver in the XLi IEEE
1588 Clock, and configures GPS as its primary reference source. When the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock locks
to the GPS reference source, it computes TAI and synchronizes the PTP grandmaster (the IEEE 1588
card). When the PTP grandmaster is synchronized to the XLi IEEE 1588 clock it starts operating,
sending out PTP Sync and Follow_Up messages and responding to PTP requests.
1
Selecting a GPS Antenna Site
Select a site outdoors that...
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Is the highest point available
Offers a full 360° view horizontally, to within 10° vertically of the horizon
Is higher than neighboring buildings/obstructions
Is protected from strong radio frequency (RF) and microwave transmissions
Is set away from RF-reflective surfaces that cause multipath interference
Is set 3 ft. (1 m) away from other GPS antennas
Is within the maximum GPS antenna cable length from the XLi
5
Typically, this site is on the roof of the building.
Avoid...
•
•
•
•
•
•
Mounting the antenna between tall buildings or next to walls and equipment
Exceeding the maximum cable-lengths specified for a particular cabling arrangement.
Patching multiple cables together to make a single cable run
Running the cable through bulkheads and along side high-energy cables
Crimping or damaging the cable
Mounting within 15 meters/yards of lightning rods, tower, or structures that attract lightning

Blocked signals and multipath cancellation significantly increase GPS acquisition time. Multipath
cancellation is caused by reflected signals that reach the antenna out of phase with the direct signal.
Multipath cancellation and blocked signals are typically caused by vertical reflective objects positioned to
the side and above the antenna. To solve these problems, mast mount the antenna at least 1 meter
away from and above the reflecting surface.
Verifying the Site
Verify that the length of cable from the GPS antenna site to the XLi does not exceed the maximum GPS
antenna lengths recommended to meet the GPS signal strength requirements. When calculating the
total antenna cable length, include cable that is needed to meet safety and regulatory requirements,
such as lightning arrestors and building code requirements for running coaxial cable from the exterior to
the interior of a building.
If possible, test the GPS signal reception of a particular site before mounting the antenna and running
the cable indoors. Some sites may turn out to be unsuitable due to interference.
Notes:
•
•
•
•
•
The XLi requires a 12-volt compatible antenna. Antennas not rated for 12 V will be damaged.
Use a splitter, not a BNC “T” connector, when connecting an antenna to multiple receivers.
The L1 GPS antenna is designed to operate with up to 150 ft. (45.72 m) of RG-59 coax cable.
A line amplifier is available for cable runs between 150 - 300 ft. (46 - 91 m) in length (RG-59).
A down-converter kit is available for cable runs of 1,500 ft. (457.2 m) in length (RG-58).
Mounting the GPS Antenna
Mount the GPS antenna on an antenna mast (recommended) or on the peak of a building. For the mast,
use 2-inch (5.08-cm) diameter PVC pipe or conduit that is rigid enough to withstand high winds without
flexing. Use guy wires to stabilize masts longer than 10 ft. (3.048 m). Avoid mounting the antenna on a
tower, which requires a specialist to maintain.

GPS Signal Strength Requirements
Refer to Figure 4:The required gain at the GPS receiver’s ANTENNA connector is greater than 20 dB
and less than 36 dB. A 150 foot length of RG-59 coax cable of has a loss of 16-21 dB, which meets this
requirement. Abide by the minimum input gain requirements if using other cable types. Additionally, if
changing the antenna, abide by the 41 dB gain requirement. Other factors, such as radiation, coverage,

Figure 4: GPS Signal Strength Requirements
Connect the GPS antenna cable to the GPS receiver’s ANTENNA connector at the rear of the XLi.
Note: Use a 12-volt capable GPS antenna.
Making Additional Connections and Powering Up
Make the following connections to the XLi (all cables supplied):
1.
For access to the web and command line interfaces, connect NET network port (on the Main CPU
Card, 87-8000) to the LAN using the Cat 5 network cable (supplied).
For local access to the command line interface only, connect the SERIAL I/O port (on the Main CPU
Card, 87-8000) to the to the PC’s serial port using a null modem cable.
2.
Connect the 1588 network port to the timing network.
3.
Connect the AC Power Supply it to a power source. The green STATUS light on the power supply
indicates that the XLi is receiving power.
Upon receiving power, the XLi goes through its startup sequence; displaying “BOOTING”, “LOADING”, and “STARTING”. After approximately 40 seconds, the XLi displays the clock status, and user
interfaces (front panel/command line) become available. The IEEE 1588 card requires an additional
2 minutes to complete its startup sequence before it is available from the user interfaces.
Warning: Ensure that a disconnect device, such as a switch, with the appropriate voltage/
current rating is provided when operating/installing the XLi.

Configuring the IEEE 1588 Card(s)
Two versions of the XLi IEEE 1588 clock are currently available:
The first version has:
•
•
An IEEE 1588 card configured as a PTP master in Option Bay 4
A GPS receiver in Option Bay 1
The second version has:
•
•
•
An IEEE 1588 card configured as a PTP master in Option Bay 4
An IEEE 1588 card configured as a PTP slave in Option Bay 2
A GPS receiver in Option Bay 1
Note: With two IEEE cards, be mindful of the Option Bay number when changing the settings.
PTP Master
Note: The IEEE 1588 card requires 5 minutes from power up to initialize. Until then, the card does not
appear in the user interfaces, or is reported as "NOT AVAILABLE".
Function F131 is available for configuring IEEE 1588 cards. The IEEE 1588 card located in Option Bay 4
is preconfigured as a PTP master, as shown here:

Note: When two IEEE 1588 cards are present, use the up/down arrow keys to select the PTP master in
Option Bay 4 before making changes.
Using the familiar keypad display interface, modify the following F131 settings:
•
•
•
If a DHCP server is not available on the timing network, disable DHCP and set static values for
the PTP IP ADDRES, SUBNET MASK, and DEFAULT GATEWAY.1
Configure the following settings on so that the PTP master and PTP slaves match each other:
- PTP SYNC INTERVAL - The rate at which synchronization packets are sent out. The factory
setting, 2 seconds, is the recommended value.
- PTP BURST MODE - Enables quick and accurate synchronization. Generates additional network traffic.
- PTP SUBDOMAIN - Defines the PTP master as a member of a logical timing network.
(Recommended) Enable PTP PREFERRED MASTER to have PTP slaves on the timing network
favor the PTP grandmaster over other potential masters.
2
1
IMPORTANT: If one of the PTP slaves on the timing network is a Symmetricom IEEE 1588 card,
the interval for all PTP masters and PTP slaves must be set to 2 SECONDS.
PTP Slave
To reconfigure the IEEE 1588 card from being a PTP master to being a PTP slave, complete the
following steps:
1.
Having logged in to the web interface, from the Admin Homepage, click the link Option Bay 4 IEEE
1588 Master. The new 1588 web page takes approximately 5 seconds to load.
2.
Set Clock Configuration to Slave Primary.
3.
Try operating with Slave Synchronization Threshold at 5 microseconds. Timing networks with bursty
or heavy traffic, routers, or many layers of hubs and switches may need the higher 1000 microsecond setting.
4.
Click the Submit Changes button.
5.
The front panel display should show "LOCKED PTP PRI" soon after.
5
The IEEE 1588 card is now operating as a PTP slave and is also functioning as the primary reference
source to the PTP master. The GPS receiver, which was previously operating as the primary reference
source to the IEEE 1588 clock, is now a STANDBY reference source.
1. After saving changes, if DHCP is enabled and a DHCP server is available, F131 displays the DHCP-assigned settings following the PTP DHCP ENABLE screen.

Note: The IEEE 1588 card configured as a PTP slave relies on TAI as the time scale of the PTP master.
Distributing non-TAI time over PTP while the PTP slave is a reference source will have a predictable effect on the XLi’s system time.
1
Note: Later on, when reconfiguring the IEEE 1588 card as a PTP master, use F119 to set the GPS
receiver as the PRIMARY reference source. (In F119: Set GPS TIME REFERENCE, BAY 1 to
PRIMARY.)
Note: For XLi IEEE 1588 Clocks with the second IEEE 1588 card in Option Bay 2 (preconfigured a PTP
slave, configure the network settings, PTP SYNC INTERVAL, PTP BURST MODE, and PTP
SUBDOMAIN. The factory settings are the same as for the PTP master, except the static IP
Address is 010.048.000.105 and Clock Configuration is Slave Primary.
Rack Mounting the XLi
The XLi comes with the following parts needed to mount the XLi securely in any EIA standard 19-inch
(48.26-cm) rack:
•
•
2 mounting brackets
4 flat-head, Phillips screws
Have the following items ready and available:
•
•
The appropriate AC source to connect to the XLi’s power supply.

4: User Interfaces
The XLi features two user interfaces for controlling the XLi’s functions:
•
•
•
A keypad/display interface on the front panel of the XLi
A command line interface, available through the serial and network ports
A web interface, available from a browser connected to the XLi’s network port.
There is also an Alarm Status LED on the front panel.
2
Alarm Status LED
The Alarm Status LED, located on the front panel, displays the alarm-state of the XLi unit. The LED has
four states:
Dark
= Power is off.
1
Green = No F73-related alarms. The current reference source input is locked.
Amber = No F73 Alarms. Timeout Delay is counting down, but hasn’t elapsed. The current reference
source input is unlocked (e.g. broken antenna cable or no GPS signal)
Red
= An indicator in F73 has triggered an alarm. Check F73 to find out what the fault/unlock condition
is and take appropriate action.
Notes:
•
The amber LED can turn green again while the reference source input remains unlocked
because:
- F119’s ‘GPS Status’ controls whether the LED turns amber.
- F73’s ‘Timeout Delay’ controls how long the LED remains amber.
•
The blinking of the LED has no meaning. It is a user preference that can be enabled or disabled
using the F73’s ‘LED Blink’ setting. If enabled, the LED blinks when it is green and yellow, but
stays unblinking when it is red. If disabled, the LED doesn’t blink.
5
Keypad/Display Interface
Time Display
Press the TIME button on the keypad to display the time only. Use the TIME button to exit the STATUS,
MENU, or function displays. The time format is DDD:HH:MM:SS.

Command Line Interface
2
1
To open a command line session, connect to the serial or network port using a terminal or a terminal
emulation program on a PC.
Consult “5: Function Reference” on page 35 for information on the function commands.
Logging In
Two user names are available for logging in to the network port’s command line interface: “operator” and
“guest”. The serial port’s command line interface does not require the user to log in.
Operator Login
The Operator has full privileges to change the settings in all the XLi’s functions and to perform firmware
updates. As shipped, you can log in as Operator using:
5
User Name: operator
Password: janus
To maintain security, change the Operator password at installation. If you are logged in as “operator”, the
only command line interface function you cannot perform is changing the Guest password.
Guest Login
Use the guest login to view function settings. As shipped, you can log in as guest using:
User Name: guest
Password: ttm
To maintain security, change the Guest password at installation. If you try to use a function that is not
accessible from the guest login, you will see a message such as “Access denied” or “Command
canceled”.

Logging Out
You can log out using any of the following commands:

1
Changing Username and Password
To change the user name and password, use the following commands:
•
•
“F100 P – Change User Password” on page 95
“F100 PN – Change User Name” on page 97
To reset a lost or forgotten operator username/password, use F100 P and F100 PN commands from the
command line interface on the serial port.
Session Timeout and Priority
The XLi’s system firmware closes inactive command line sessions on the network port after 15 minutes.
The XLi does not terminate inactive command line sessions on the serial port.
The user can open a network port session and a serial ports session concurrently, provided the other
session is inactive (i.e., not actively performing a function such as F8 - Continuous Time Once-perSecond). The XLi does not allow two or more concurrent network port sessions.
A network port session can be active while an inactive serial port session is open. However, if the serial
port session receives user input at this point, it takes control away from the network port and does not
yield control to the network port again. The network port will show a prompt, but won’t accept additional
commands after the serial port has taken control. Attempting to close the network port session and open
a new one will fail; a network port connection cannot be re-established until the serial port has been
closed. The following transcripts shows a ‘contest’ between a serial and a network port session:

The web interface manages this distinction by providing two sets of web pages. Pages available from the
XLi Admin Homepage display status information and let the user change the XLi’s configuration settings.
Pages available from the XLi User Homepage only display status information.
1
Administrative users (e.g., operator1) have access to both the XLi Admin Homepage and the XLi User
Homepage sets of pages. Non-administrative users (e.g., user1) only have access to the XLi User
Homepage set of pages.
Sessions
Only one user can be logged into the web interface at a time. The web interface does not support
concurrent web sessions. If a second user tries to log in, the browser displays a "503 Web Page Server
Busy" message.
The XLi supports concurrent user sessions on the web and command line interfaces (on the network or
serial port). However, Symmetricom recommends avoiding concurrent administrative user sessions.
The XLi’s web server automatically closes inactive web sessions after 30 minutes of inactivity.
User Names and Passwords
The ten administrative user names, “operator1” through “operator10”, have “zeus” as the factory set
password.
The ten non-administrative user names, “user1” through “user10”, have “ttm” as the factory set
password.
Only administrative users can change the user names and passwords. User names and passwords must
have 1 to 15 characters, and are limited to upper/lower case alphanumeric and underscore (“_”)
characters. No “special” characters.
Logging In
To log in, enter the IP address of the XLi’s “NET” network port into the web browser’s address field. At
the XLi Home Page, click the Login button. Enter the appropriate user name and password and click the
Login button with your mouse. The browser displays the XLi Admin Homepage or XLi User Homepage.
Navigating
Several notes about using the web interface:
•
•
The home page presents an image of the XLi’s front panel to assist with identification, should the
user need to find it on a rack.
The images of the 1U chassis show the position of the options bays as seen from the rear of the
unit.
The links on the left navigation bar provide access to three different aspects of the XLi:
•
32
General - the general status and configuration of the XLi system (e.g., user accounts, clock

settings, alarms, and SNMP).
System I/O - the status and configuration of the input and output connectors on the rear of the
main CPU card (e.g., communication settings, code out, J1, J2, and J3).
Subsystem - configuration of the option cards located in the option bays
Under Subsystem, the XLi names CPU-aware option cards to the right of the option bay where they are
located. Non-CPU aware cards can be present and fully operational in an option bay, but are not shown
in the web interface. For more information, see F118 – Option Board Configuration (page 108).
Only option bays with CPU-aware option cards will have active links. Clicking the link of an unpopulated
or non-existent option bay simply refreshes the web page.
2
When clicking on links, allow each page to load before clicking another link. Clicking links too quickly
may cause the Login page to appear.
Submitting Changes
1
When submitting changes, only click the Submit Changes button once. Wait for the web page to load
before navigating away from the page or submitting another change.
Logging Out
To log out, click the Logout button located in the upper left corner of the page.
If the user closes the browser without logging out, a new session will not be available until the XLi closes
the inactive session after 30 minutes.
Notes
Notes for specific pages in the web interface:
•
•
•
Units equipped with the GPS C/A Receiver (87-8028-2): When the user changes the M12 GPS
Mode setting and applies the changes, the GPS C/A Receiver goes through several states
before attaining the user-specified mode.
Change Login Page: To change the Operator name, but not the password, leave the password
field blank and submit the change.
The NTP option, though mentioned in the Web Interface, is currently unavailable for the standard
XLi IEEE 1588 clock.

F1 – Time Zone Offset
1
Use function F1 to display and set the time zone offset between your Standard Time zone and Universal
Time Coordinated (UTC). Refer to “F: World Map of Time Zones:” on page 193. F1 is the basis for
Standard Time and Local Time used by F69. For an expanded explanation of Local, Standard, UTC, TAI,
and GPS time, see “F69 – Time Mode” on page 65.
For example, to set the time zone for Pacific Standard Time (UTC –8 hours), set the value in F1 to –
08:00. Exclude the 1-hour Daylight Saving Time (DST) offset from this value. DST is handled separately
by “F66 – Daylight Saving Time (DST) Mode” on page 63.
Because the front panel display and Multicode Output card can be configured to display/distribute Local
or Standard time, we recommended configuring F1 as described in the “3: Installation and Set-up” on
page 15.
The factory setting for F1 is UTC –8:00 hours (Pacific Standard Time).

F2 – 12/24 Hour Format
Use function F2 to make 12 or 24-hour time notation available from:
•
•
•
Keypad/Display Interface (page 25)
F8 - Continuous Time Once-per-Second (page 46)
F9 - Time On Request (page 49)
1
And separately from:
•
CODE – Time Code Output (page 13)
F2 does not affect the output of the IEEE 1588 card.
The factory settings for F2 are 24-hour format for the display and 24-hour format for IRIG (F90)
The user can apply F2 regardless of the time scale selected using F69 (Local, Standard, TAI, GPS,
UTC).
5
Typically, 12 hour notation only applied to Standard and Local time. Symmetricom strongly recommends
using 24 notation when F69 is set to TAI, GPS, and UTC. Applying 12 hour notation to those time scales
is non-standard and causes ambiguous representation of time. For example, if 12 hour notation is
applied to TAI, the front panel displays “249:10:21:34” once in the morning, and once at night.
Note: Symmetricom strongly recommends using only 24 hour notation for the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
The 12-hour notation counts hours from 1 to 12 twice per day, like a conventional wall clock. The 24-hour
notation counts hours from 0 to 23 once per day. For example, in the 24 hour notation, 18:00 is
equivalent to 06:00 in the 12-hour notation (i.e., 18:00 – 12 hours = 06:00).

F3 – Time & Date
Use function F3 to set the XLi system clock’s time and date. If the XLi is using GPS as its primary
reference source, setting F3 manually is unnecessary. Following startup, the XLi synchronizes its time
and date to the GPS reference source1. If the XLi doesn’t have GPS as its primary reference source, use
F3 to set the time for the IEEE 1588 option card.
F3 prompts the user for the Time Mode, the Date in mm/dd/yyyy format, and the Time in hh:mm:ss
format. The hours in hh:mm:ss should be given using 24-hour notation (e.g., 6 pm = 18:00).

TIME MODE selects which time scale (TAI, Local, Standard, GPS, UTC) is being entered by the user.
The XLi, translates the user entry into its equivalents in other time scales. For example, if Local time is 5 hours relative to UTC, entering LOCAL - 07/14/2006 - 10:47:10 in F3 shows up on the front keypad
display as UTC 198:15:47:10.
TIME MODE in F3 defines only the entry of time in F3; it does not control the time scale displayed or
output by the XLi. F3’s Time Mode should not be confused with F69 (see “F69 – Time Mode” on
page 65). F69 controls the time scale displayed/output on the front panel display, F8 - Continuous Time
Once-per-Second, F9 - Time On Request, and F90 – Code Output Configuration.

Notes:
•
Avoid saving/applying new F3 settings while the XLi is locked to a reference source and
distributing time information. Doing so allows the XLi to distribute the potentially incorrect time set
by F3 for up to 8 seconds until the XLi re-synchronizes to the (GPS) reference source. If the user
applies new F3 settings while the XLi is locked to the reference source, the XLi switches to the
F3 time and then back to GPS reference without generating an alarm. With IEEE 1588 packets,
for example, this means that the incorrect time would be distributed for a short period of time until
the XLi resynchronized with the GPS reference source.

F5 – Time-Quality Setup
Use function F5 to enable/disable time quality reporting, and to set the thresholds of the four time-quality
flags.
How time quality reporting works in the XLi: When a reference source becomes unavailable, the XLi
uses its own oscillator to keep track of time. Without the reference source, the XLi can no longer adjust,
or steer, the oscillator to remain synchronized with the reference source. The rate at which the oscillator
counts time is slightly faster or slower than the reference source. The resulting difference, time error,
accumulates over time.

The XLi estimates the time error based on the oscillator-type and on the degree of steering (DAC value)
applied to the oscillator before the reference source became unavailable. As time error grows and
exceeds the thresholds of each time-quality flag, the XLi generates a different time-quality indicator. The
time-quality indicator is represented as a time quality character in the following text-based time outputs:
•
•
“F8 - Continuous Time Once-per-Second” on page 46
“F9 - Time On Request” on page 49
In addition, a time quality indicator is encoded in IRIG-B time code generated by the following functions:
•
“F90 – Code Output Configuration” on page 78
For more information on time quality indicators, see “IRIG Standard Format A” on page 192.
The XLi accepts threshold values from 200 ns to 40000000000 ns.
The factory settings for F5 are as follows:
•
•
•
•
•
Time quality reporting - enabled
First time quality flag 150 ns
Second time quality flag 15,000 ns
Third time quality flag 1,000,000 ns
Fourth time quality flag 150,000,000 ns
The IEEE 1588 stratum of the PTP master is determined from the following relational table based on the
XLi time quality flag settings:
•
•
•
Stratum 1: 150 ns or better (GPS equivalent performance)
Stratum 2: From 150 ns to better than 15,000 ns
Stratum 4: From 15,00ns to better than 150,000,000 ns

The factory setting for the output string format is as follows:
<SOH>DDD:HH:MM:SSQ<CR><LF>

where:
<SOH>
= ASCII Start-of-Heading character
<CR>
= ASCII Carriage Return character
<LF>
= ASCII Line Feed character

HH
= hours.
MM
= minutes.
SS
= seconds.
mmm
= milliseconds.
:

Q
= time quality character (see the following table)
1
The time quality character, "Q", is one of the following characters:
SPACE = Time error is less than time quality flag 1's threshold
.
= Time error has exceeded time quality flag 1's threshold
*
= Time error has exceeded time quality flag 2's threshold
#
= Time error has exceeded time quality flag 3's threshold
?
= Time error has exceeded time quality flag 4's threshold
or a reference source is unavailable
5
The time quality characters can not be modified.
Use F11 - Time Output Format (page 50) to change the format of the F8 output string.
Use F5 – Time-Quality Setup (page 43) to set the four time quality thresholds.

While Synchronizing to a Reference Source
1
Following startup, the user should avoid using F8 outputs until the XLi has acquired and locked to a
timing reference source such as GPS PRI (when F131 is set to PTP MASTER) or the IEEE 1588 card
(when F131 is set to PTP SLAVE PRIMARY).
F8’s output appears similar to the following example while the XLi locks and synchronizes to a reference:
001:00:13:45*
001:00:13:46?
...
001:00:14:05?
001:00:13:44
001:00:13:59
...
001:00:14:05
322:17:59:34
322:17:59:35
When the time quality characters clear, and the time-of-year synchronizes to the reference source time,
the F8 output string should be considered accurate and reliable.
After Loosing a Reference Source
If the system clock comes unlocked from the reference source (no reference sources available), F8
continues generating time-of-year information based on the synchronized time. Gradually, as the
estimated worst case time error (“F13 – Time Error”, page 52) accumulates and exceeds each time
quality threshold (“F5 – Time-Quality Setup”, page 43), F8 appends the appropriate time quality
character to the time-of-year string. This progression appears similar to the following example:
322:18:02:31
322:18:02:32.
322:18:02:33*
322:18:02:34*
Command Line
For example, to initiate Continuous Time once-per-second, enter:
F8<CR>
The XLi replies:
199:11:19:30<CR><LF>
199:11:19:31<CR><LF>
199:11:19:32<CR><LF>
To stop F8 Continuous Time Once-Per-Second, press Ctrl-C on your keyboard.

F9 - Time On Request
This function is available through the command line interface only. It is not available from the keypad.
Use function F9 to record the exact time the XLi receives a request from the user.
Enter the command "F9<CR>" to prepare the XLi for the user's request. At the desired moment, send
the request to the XLi by entering an upper case "T". The XLi saves the current time-of-day, accurate to
within 1μS, to a buffer, and then outputs it to the command line interface. The XLi continues to provide
the time-of-day each time it receives a "T" until F9 is cancelled. To cancel F9, enter Ctrl-C on your
keyboard. The command line disregards all input other than SHIFT-T and Ctrl-C.
2
The time-of-day output is only available on the network or serial port used to give the F9 command.
F9’s factory set output string is as follows:
<SOH>DDD:HH:MM:SS.mmmQ<CR><LF>

Suppress the “DDD”, “HH”, “MM”, “SS”, “mmm”, and “Q” segments of F11 by placing an “X” (Shift-X) in
the leading position of any segment, followed by any placeholder characters, and the following
separator. For example, to suppress “DDD”, enter:
F11 X--:
1
To see the resulting change to F11, enter:
F11
F11, with “DDD” suppressed, responds:
F11 XDD:HH:MM:SS.mmmQ
With “DDD” suppressed, the output of F8 would look like this example:
:16:23:32
Ending a format string early (no “:” or “.” separator at the end) with a carriage return, enables the
remaining un-typed characters. This makes it easy to restore the default F11 formatting.
To return F11 to its default format, enter:
5
F11 D
To display the restored defaults, enter “F11” again. F11 responds:
F11 DDD:HH:MM:SS.mmmQ
The “DDD”, “HH”, “MM”, “SS”, “mmm”, and “Q” segments can not be replaced with characters, they can
only be suppressed.
The “:” and “.” separators can be replaced with ASCII characters or suppressed using “X”. For example,
to replace the separators with characters, enter:
F11 ---D--H--M--S
When you check the results by entering “F11”, F11 responds:

F13 – Time Error
Use function F13 to request the estimated worst-case time error due to oscillator drift during periods of
unlock from a reference source. See “System Time & Frequency Accuracy” on page 10 for more
information on time error for different reference sources. Time error begins to accumulate when the
receiver loses lock to a reference source. The XLi calculates the worst-case time error based on the
stability of system clock’s oscillator type, and the time elapsed since loss of lock.
Command Line
The Command line interface will report time error when it receives the following string:
F13<CR>
The XLi responds:
F13<S><ERROR><CR><LF>
where:
F13
= ASCII string for function F13
<S>
= ASCII space character
<ERROR> = calculated worst-case error in seconds
<CR>
= carriage return character
<LF>
= line feed
For example, to display the time error, enter:
F13<CR>
XLi responds (example):
F13 TIME ERROR -0.002932863<CR><LF>

F51 – GPS Antenna Cable Delay
Use function F51 to display or configure the GPS antenna cable delay. Setting a positive value for F51
compensates for the time the signal takes to travel the length of the cable from the GPS antenna to the
receiver. When multiple GPS receivers are installed, a separate value can be set for each unique
receiver. The factory setting for F51 is +60 ns, which corresponds to the 50-foot (15.24-meter) long RGXLi IEEE 1588 Clock

length, calculate the new value using the multiple given below and adjust the value of F51. If using an
optional Down/Up Converter, consult that product’s documentation for directions on setting the correct
cable delay.
F51 Guidelines:
•
•
•
For RG-59: multiply the cable length by 1.24 ns/ft. to get the value for F51.
For RG-58: multiply the cable length by 1.4 ns/ft. to get the value for F51.
Don’t use function F51 to adjust the XLi’s timing outputs; use F52 Distribution Cable Delay
instead.
Command Line
Use the following format to display the current Antenna Cable Delay setting:
F51<S>B<N><CR>
The XLi responds using the following format:
F51<S>B<N><SEP><SIGN><DELAY>ns<CR><LF>
where:
F
= ASCII character F (f or F for input string).

F52 – Distribution Cable Delay
Use function F52 to display or set the distribution cable delay for the time code and 1 PPS outputs. F52
compensates for the signal’s travel time from the XLi to its point of use. The distribution cable delay
applies uniformly to all output ports. The as-shipped factory setting is +0 ns. The range of possible
values is +999,999 ns to –999,999 ns. Positive values advance the timing signals, while negative values
retard them.
1
To calculate what the setting should be, multiply the delay/foot by the length of the cable in feet. The
typical delays for the following cable types are:
•
•
RG-58 – approximately 1.4 ns/foot
RG-59 – approximately 1.24 ns/foot

F53 – GPS Operation Mode
The GPS C/A Receiver (87-8028-2) has two modes:
•
•
Select “Dynamic Mode” if the position of the receiver is subject to frequent change, or if it is in
continuous motion. For example, use Dynamic Mode when the XLi is used in mobile vehicles
such as ships, land vehicles, or aircraft. With Dynamic Mode selected, the receiver updates the
position information repeatedly to arrive at the best time calculations for a mobile environment.
Select “Time Mode” if the receiver used in a static environment such as a server room. With Time
Mode, the receiver averages the position data over time to determine the antenna position and
calculate the time precisely and accurately.

F60 – GPS Receiver Satellite List
Use function F60 to display the identification number and signal strength of tracked or current satellites.
‘Tracked’ means a satellite’s signal is being received and interpreted by the receiver (or that the XLi has
GPS data that suggests this satellite should be visible to the antenna).
GPS satellite are grouped into the following categories:
•
Tracked: the XLi is receiving the GPS signal, but isn’t using it to calculate time and position.
•
Current: the XLi is using the satellite’s GPS signal to calculate time and position.
•
Bad: the GPS satellite is transmitting information that it has been removed from service.
•
Rejected: the XLi M12 receiver’s TRAIM feature has detected anomalous signals from this
satellite and has quarantined it from the timing solution for 12 hours.
GPS satellite signal strengths are reported in units of dBW. Signals below -170 dBW (e.g., -171 dBW)
are not usable by the GPS receiver. See “GPS Signal Strength Requirements” on page 17.
If multiple GPS receivers are installed in the XLi, F60 identifies the GPS receiver by the option bay
number in which it is located. For a diagram of option bay numbers, see “F118 – Option Board
Configuration” on page 108.
If you’re using the keypad/display interface, use the UP/DOWN ARROWs to scroll through the list of
satellites.

day, any day of the year. However, transitions scheduled within 24 hours of the beginning/end of the year
may not occur at the desired time. This function also works for locations in the southern hemisphere,
where DST spans the new year.

F69 – Time Mode
Use function F69 to select the time mode (time scale) shown or output by:
•
•
•
•
The XLi’s front panel display
The following command line functions (network and serial port):
- “F8 - Continuous Time Once-per-Second” on page 46
- “F9 - Time On Request” on page 49
The CODE output on the Main CPU card. (“F90 – Code Output Configuration” on page 78)
The PTP packets output by the IEEE 1588 card’s network port (“F131 - Precision Time Protocol
Network Config” on page 119)
2
Select between the following time scales:
•
•
•
•
•
TAI (International Atomic Time) is the basis for UTC and GPS time. TAI is the recommended
time scale for IEEE 1588 standard.
UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) differs from GPS Time by the addition of leap-second
corrections to compensate for variations in the earth’s rotation.
Standard Time is UTC plus a time zone adjustment. For example, Pacific Standard Time is UTC
minus 8 hours.
GPS Time is derived directly from the GPS constellation and doesn’t contain any leap-second
adjustments or other GPS-to-UTC corrections.
Local Time is UTC plus a time zone and a daylight saving time adjustment.
1
IMPORTANT interactions between F69 and the IEEE1588 card:
•
•
•
•
When the IEEE 1588 card is operating as a PTP master, if F69 is set to TAI, Local, or GPS, the
1588 port outputs PTP with TAI time.1
When the IEEE 1588 card is operating as a PTP master, if F69 is set to Standard or UTC, the
1588 port outputs PTP with Standard or UTC time respectively.
When the IEEE 1588 card is operating as a PTP slave, only TAI and GPS are valid settings for
F69. the reference source so can cause the XLi to output the incorrect time on the display, the
CODE output, F8, and F9.2
F69 has no effect on the IEEE 1588 card operating as a PTP slave. The IEEE 1588 card
operating as a PTP slave expects TAI from PTP.
5
The factory default for the XLi IEEE 1588 clock is TAI.
1. When F69 is configured for Local or GPS time, the display, the CODE output, F8, and F9 all output Local or GPS
time respectively. Only the IEEE 1588 card “redefines” Local and GPS from F69 as TAI.
2. The XLi requires the value of the offset between GPS and UTC in seconds to compute Local, Standard, and UTC
time. This offset can change by one second, and can potentially be updated at two times during the year. The XLi
typically obtains the offset from GPS while GPS is the primary reference source. The value of the offset isn’t
available from PTP should slave were the reference source). If a PTP slave is the reference source, a reference
source doesn’t obtain the offset from PTP and provide it to the XLi. If the PTP slave and GPS are both reference
sources, the value of offset is not reliable because.

F71 – Oscillator Statistics
Use F71 to display the phase, frequency offset, drift rate, and DAC value of an internal or optional
external oscillator.
Definitions:
5
The phase is the instantaneous error in seconds between the oscillator and the control loop zero servo
point. The frequency offset is computed using an averaging time that is equal to the effective averaging
time of the oscillator controller. The oscillator Drift Rate is computed using a 24-hour average and is the
daily Drift Rate of the oscillator. The oscillator DAC value is the signed 16-bit integer that controls the
DAC output voltage. It ranges from 0 to 65536.
Command Line
To display the F71 settings, enter:

Alarms - General Information
With Alarm Disabled, an F73 indicator does not trigger and alarm when it enters an Unlocked or Fault
state.
With Alarm Enabled, an F73 indicator triggers an alarm when it enters an Unlocked or Fault state, and
the following events take place:
•
•
•
The Alarm Status LED changes color from green to amber or red (See “Alarm Status LED” on
page 25.)
The ALARM output on the rear panel changes from low Z to high Z (impedance).
If configured, SNMP sends a trap out over the network port. (See “C: SNMP” on page 151.)
2
The following items may delay an unlocked or fault state from triggering an alarm immediately:
•
•
Timeout and Timeout Delay postpone Time Error alarms for a user-configured interval. See
“Timeout and Timeout Delay” on page 71.
Power-on Alarm Suppress prevents alarms from being triggered for a user-configured interval
after the XLi boots and starts. See “Power On Alarm Suppress” on page 72.
1
Time Error and Time Threshold
Time Threshold sets the threshold in ns above which Time Error triggers an alarm. When the oscillator’s
predicted worst-case time error (“F13 – Time Error” on page 52) exceeds Time Threshold, Time Error
enters a fault state.
Note: When Time Threshold is set to zero, it defaults to an appropriate value for the type of reference source. For example, when Time Threshold is set to “0”, the XLi applies 150 ns as the
value while the reference locked to a GPS reference.
LED Blink
5
When LED Blink is enabled, the Alarm Status LED on the front panel blinks when it is green or yellow.
The LED does not blink when it is red, even if LED Blink is enabled. Some users disable LED Blink to
ensure that the LED’s color (state) is displayed without interruption.
Timeout and Timeout Delay
Timeout and Timeout Delay allow you to add the dimension of time to the Time Error indicator. With
Timeout disabled, a Time Error fault triggers an alarm immediately. With Timeout is enabled, a Time
Error fault starts counting down the number of seconds specified by Timeout Delay. When the Timeout
Delay countdown finishes, the Time Error fault triggers an alarm. (Note: the Alarm Status LED on the
front panel turns amber while the Timeout Delay is counting down). If the Time Error fault returns to an
OK state during the Timeout Delay countdown, the countdown clears. A new Time Error fault starts the
Timeout Delay countdown from the beginning. In other words, Timeout Delay countdown does not keep
track of the cumulative duration of multiple Time Error faults.

The keyboard/display interface shows the Alarm Latch as an asterisk next to an indicator, as follows:

ALARM ENABLED
Power On Alarm Suppress
Power On Alarm Suppress prevents all F73 alarms from occurring for a specified interval after the unit
starts up. The factory setting is 300 seconds (five minutes). When that interval ends, current and new
alarms are reported normally.
Clear Alarm Latch
Each indicator has an Alarm Latch. The Alarm Latch shows that indicator that has been in an alarm
state, even if it presently reports as “Locked” or “OK”. The Alarm Latch is useful for finding transient
alarms. Clear the alarm latch settings after troubleshooting or fixing the cause of an alarm so new alarms
can be distinguished from previous ones.
Note that an alarm latch only records the occurrence of an alarm if it the indicator’s alarm is enabled.
The alarm latch does not record the occurrence of a fault or unlocked state if the indicator’s alarm is
disabled.
Keypad
Note: The Alarm Latch asterisk is not the same as the “reference source unavailable” asterisk that can
sometimes be seen on the STATUS display.

F74 – Clock Source Control
Use function F74 to select the primary and secondary reference sources and configure the fail-over
sequences. The switching modes are:
1
•
•
•
•
•
PRI or “Primary”: Ensures the unit remains connected to the primary source and doesn’t attempt
to switch. PRI is the factory setting.
SEC or “Secondary”: Ensures the unit remains connected to the secondary source and doesn’t
attempt to switch.
PRI – SEC – SEC or “Primary – Secondary – Secondary”: the clock synchronizes with the
primary source. If the primary source becomes unavailable, it switches to the secondary source
and stays there, even if the primary source becomes available again. It stays on secondary even
if the secondary source becomes unavailable.
PRI – SEC – PRI or “Primary – Secondary – Primary”: the clock synchronizes with the primary
source. If the primary source becomes unavailable, it switches to the secondary source. When
the primary source becomes available again, it switches back to the primary.
PRI – NSEC – PRI or “Primary – No Secondary – Primary”: the clock synchronizes with the
primary source. If the primary source becomes unavailable, it switches to the secondary source.
If the secondary source becomes unavailable, AND the primary is available, switches back to the
primary.
5
Clock source switching is affected by the setting in F73 Timeout. When a reference source becomes
unavailable, or unlocked, the number of seconds set in F73 Timeout must elapse before the switch
occurs. While the reference source is unavailable the clock relies on a frequency source, such as its own
oscillator or Aux Ref, to keep time. (If Aux Ref is available and enabled, the XLi will use Aux Ref as its
frequency source. See “F113 – J3 Input Configuration (Aux Ref)” on page 104 for more information.)
After the timeout has elapsed, the switching sequence begins.
When a time reference becomes unavailable, the XLi switches to the other time reference, if available.
The configuration of the time reference (e.g., Primary or Secondary) and the settings in F74 – Clock
Source Control (page 77) determine if and how switching takes place. If no other time reference is
available, the XLi will use an Aux Ref frequency input on J3 (“F113 – J3 Input Configuration (Aux Ref)”,
page 104) as its reference. If references are available, the XLi “freewheels” on its internal oscillator.

F100 – Network Port Configuration & XLi Firmware
F100 provides two groups of commands:
1
•
•
Group 1, available through the keypad/display and the command line, provides access to
network port settings and hardware/Firmware status information.
Group 2, available through the command line only, provides commands for changing system
firmware, changing SNMP parameters, changing the user name/password, resetting the unit,
and pinging other network devices.
Warning: The F100 commands have the capacity to remove the XLi from the network and disable the
XLi’s system firmware. Use judiciously.
Reboot Warning: Saving changes to any F100 parameter using the keypad/display will reboot the XLi.
Some of the F100 command line commands also reboot the XLi. These are identified in the following
documentation.
Group 1
You can use both the keypad/display and the command line interface to access the following
parameters:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
80
Ethernet address: XLi contains a unique Ethernet or Media Access Control (MAC) address
comprised of a unique number assigned to the manufacturer, and a unique number assigned to
the unit. This is factory set and cannot be changed.
IP Address: Sets a static Internet Protocol (IP) address for the unit.
Subnet Mask: Sets a valid subnet-mask used in IP addressing. Subnetting allows for the more
efficient allocation of network addresses and management of network traffic.
Default Gateway: The address of the router that handles packets addressed to IP devices
outside the local-area network.
10 100 BASE-T: The network port bandwidth setting, 10 Base-T or AUTO. (10 Base-T only for
earlier XLi hardware).
Remote Lockout: Enables or disables remote access through the XLi’s standard network port.
Enabling Remote Lockout limits users to the front-panel keypad or Serial I/O port.
Flash CRC: Status - Passed or failed.
RAM: Status - Passed or failed.
Serial: Status - Passed or failed.
Version Test: Status - Passed or failed

F100 EA – Ethernet Address
1
Use function F100 EA to display the Ethernet Address (MAC Address) (Note: An Ethernet or MAC
Address is not the same thing as an IP Address), a fixed, six-byte, hexadecimal value specific to the
unit’s standard network port. The first three bytes are registered to Symmetricom Inc.; the last three
bytes are the hex value identifying the network port.
To display the Ethernet address of the unit standard network port, enter:
F100 EA<CR>
The XLi responds:
F100 EA:00-A0-69-xx-xx-xx<CR><LF>
where “00-A0-69” is the portion of the address assigned to the manufacturer, and “xx-xx-xx” is unit’s
unique address (in hexadecimal).
An example of the response is:
F100 EA:00-A0-69-99-00-37
Attempts to set this field will be rejected with a syntax error message.

F100 BUFP – Burn FPGA Firmware
Note: See “B: Upgrading System Firmware” on page 145.
F100 BUFP - Burn FPGA firmware from host to target flash
Use Serial/Network port F100 BUFP when upgrading FPGA firmware - to write the FPGA program file
selected with F100 BH to the flash memory. Prior to issuing the F100 BUFP command, the host
computer must be setup as an FTP server with the new FPGA program file stored on the FTP server.

The existence of the FPGA program file on the FTP server and an Ethernet connection is checked when
the command is issued.
1
To write the FPGA program to the flash, send the F100 BH command with the FTP host, file path and
name, and then send the following command:
F100 BUFP
This command is only valid for XLi with an 86-8000 Rev. G or higher CPU card. If the CPU card is of the
wrong version, an error message “ERROR: INVALID COMMAND!” will be displayed.
This command is valid only via the command line interface in the following scenarios: (1) the terminal is
communicating to the XLi directly via the serial port, or (2) the terminal is connected to the XLi network
port and the user is logged in as an “operator”. If the terminal is connected to the XLi network port and
the user is logged in as a “guest”, this command will be deemed invalid and an error message, “ERROR:
ACCESS DENIED!” will be displayed.
Prior to burning the FPGA program to the target flash, another error checking step is performed. The
new FPGA program size is checked against the designated memory sector in the target flash. If the
memory sector is not big enough to store the FPGA program, the command will be aborted, an error
message, “FILE FN, EXT (yyy BYTES) TOO LARGE FOR PARTITIONING (zzz BYTES), LOAD
ABORTED” will be displayed, and the new program will not be loaded to the flash.
After all the requirements for burning the FPGA program are met, XLi will proceed to burn the FPGA
program from the FTP host computer to the target flash by responding with the following output string.
OK<CR><LF>
Then, during the file burning process, output strings will be displayed on the terminal to provide status to
the operator. The following is an example of a successful F100 BUFP command execution.
BURNING FILE 184-8000V57.bin WITH SIZE 97652 TO PARTITION:3 SECTOR:10

FLASH SUCCESSFULLY PROGRAMMED
To load the FPGA program from the target flash to the FPGA, a reboot of the XLi is required for the new
FPGA program to take effect. The XLi can be rebooted via power cycle or by issuing the F100 K I L L
command on the serial port interface.
F100 CONFIG – Configure NTP & SNMP
Note: The NTP option is unavailable for the standard XLi IEEE 1588 clock. NTP-related information has
been removed from this section of the manual.
Note: Symmetricom recommends using the Web Interface (versus than F100 CONFIG) as the most convenient method for editing the SNMP configuration file.

Notes:
•
See “A: Using F100 Configuration” on page 141.
F100 CONFIG GET instructs the XLi unit to transfer its SNMP configuration file to an FTP server. After
editing the SNMP configuration file on the FTP server, the user transfers them back to the XLi using the
F100 CONFIG SET command.
Open a Telnet session with the XLi and enter the commands below. Replace <IP Address> with that of
the workstation/FTP Server. Leave <subdir> blank (unless you have a specific reason for placing the
files in a subdirectory of the anonymous user’s home directory).
2
To get the SNMP config file, type:
>f100 config snmp get host:<IP Address> dir:<subdir><CR>
Here’s an example of a successful SNMP config file transfer:
>f100 config snmp get host:192.168.0.1 dir:
Host config ip 192.168.0.1 already configured
Source file /config/snmp.conf bytes read: 1275
Dest file snmp.conf bytes written: 1275
Configuration files transferred successfully!
1
Note: The following steps cause the XLi to reboot.
Using the command line, enter the commands, replacing <IP Address> with the workstation/FTP
server’s IP address.
To move the SNMP config file back onto the XLi, type:
>f100 config snmp set host:<IP Address> dir:<subdir><CR>
Here’s an example of a successful SNMP config file transfer:
5
>>f100 config set snmp host:192.168.0.1 dir:
Host config ip 192.168.0.1 already configured
Are you sure(y/N)?y
Source file snmp.conf bytes read: 1275
Dest file /config/snmp.conf bytes written: 1275
Configuration files transferred successfully!
Resetting...
After XLi receives the configuration files, it reboots, and goes through the normal startup process.
F100 J – Factory Mode Jumper
Use function F100 J command to test the state of the ‘factory mode’ jumper. A value of 1 means the
jumper is installed and a value of 0 means the jumper is not. The factory mode jumper can be identified
because it is the only three-prong jumper on the CPU card, and is labelled “J3”.

F110 – J1 Input (TIET)
Note: The Time Interval - Event Time (TIET) option is included as a standard feature on the XLi IEEE
1588 clock.
Note: Using time code as a reference source is not supported for the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
F110 can configure the J1 input port on the Main CPU card as a time code reference source for the
system clock, or it can configure J1 as the input for TIET operation.
Keypad
•
•

J1 Configuration: (IRIG-A, IRIG-B, NASA 36, TIET) Set to match the type of time code input.
J1 Time Reference (Available when J1 Configuration is IRIG-A, IRIG-B, NASA 36, not for TIET):
(Primary, Secondary, Standby) Identify the time code input as a primary or secondary reference
source. The function, “F74 – Clock Source Control” on page 77, uses this designation to for
reference source switching. Standby disables and removes J1 Input as a valid reference source.
Selecting Primary or Secondary automatically bumps another reference source with the same
setting (e.g. F119 – GPS Receiver Configuration) to Standby.
Note: Configuring F110 for TIET forces J1 Time Reference to Standby. When reconfiguring the J1 as a
time code reference source input, be sure to set J1 Time Reference to Secondary or Primary.
•
•
Configure Code: (AM, DC) Set to the time code input signal type: AM for amplitude modulated,
or DC level shift. See the time code definitions in “E: Time Code Formats” on page 189 for more
information.
Input Impedance: (For DC: 100 kΩ or 50Ω. For AM: 100 kΩ only.) For DC code, set the
appropriate impedance level for the length of the input cable. Short runs (<200 ft.) get 100 kΩ,
and long runs (>200) get 50Ω.

Input Polarity: Positive, Negative
Propagation Delay: (Range 0 to 99999 μS in 1 μS steps) (Factory setting: 1 μS) Compensates
for delay caused by cable length on the J1 input.
IRIG Mode: (Sync Gen)
Error Bypass: (Off, 1-10 Frames) (Factory setting: 3 frames) Is used when the IRIG input is
intermittent or has a low signal to noise ratio (SNR). This allows the time code input to ‘flywheel’
for the specified number of invalid time code frames before F110 generates an alarm. Off means
the F73 IRIG input alarm will alarm on the first invalid time code frame. 1-10 means the F73 IRIG
input alarm will alarm after it detects 1-10 invalid consecutive time code frames.
When TIET is selected for J1 Input Configuration, F110 presents the following series of choices:
•
•
Input Impedance: (100 kΩ or 50Ω) Short runs (<200 ft.) get 100 kΩ. Long runs (>200) get 50Ω.
Input Polarity: Positive only
Upon changing the settings, the last display prompt asks:
•
Save Changes?: (Yes, No) Yes applies the changes. No cancels the changes.
For J1 specifications, see “J1 Input – Time Interval - Event Time” on page 12.
Notes:
•
•
•
•
•
Time Code: The XLi expects time code input that provides UTC in 24-hour format. If the time
code does not provide UTC in 24-hour format (e.g., it uses standard, local, or GPS time, or is in
12-hour format), the XLi’s internal clock will be set to the wrong time when it uses the time code
reference, and its time outputs will be similarly affected.
Time Code: IRIG and NASA 36 time code don’t contain “year” information. Enter the current year
using F3 before using IRIG as a primary or secondary reference source. Failure to do so can
cause the incorrect time information to be distributed. See “F3 – Time & Date” on page 40.
At the end of the year, the year increments by one (e.g., 2004 -> 2005) at the end of the year,
provided the XLi is operating during the transition. If it is not operating during the transition, the
time code reasserts the preceding year when used as a reference source.
TIET: Put the F110 time code input on STANDBY first before configuring F110 for TIET.
TIET: Stray capacitance loading on the J1 input adversely impacts TIET measurements.
Command Line
F110 can configure the J1 input port to IRIG-A, IRIG-B, NASA 36, TIET Time or TIET Event. Use F110
to enter or request the J1 Input Configuration.
To request the J1 Input Configuration, enter:
F110<CR>
The function responds with the ASCII character string:

F113 – J3 Input Configuration (Aux Ref)
Note: Freq Meas is currently unavailable as an option for the standard XLi IEEE 1588 clock. Most of the
Freq Meas related information has been removed from this section.
Use function F113 to configure the J3 Input for one of the following settings:
•
•
Auxiliary Reference (Aux Ref) input
Disable all J3 inputs
F113 offers the following keypad settings:
•
•
•
J3 Input Configuration: Aux Ref, Freq Meas, Disabled
J3 Input Frequency: 1 MHz, 5 MHz, 10 MHz
J3 Input Impedance: 1kΩ, 50 Ω
The factory settings are Disabled, 10 MHz, and 1kΩ.
For J3 Input specifications, see “J3 Input – Auxiliary Reference” on page 13.
Auxiliary Reference (Aux Ref) Input:
If an external frequency reference with better long-term stability than the XLi's own oscillator—such as a
Cesium reference—is available, connect it to the J3 connector and enable Aux Ref using F113. Once
this is done, the XLi will use the Aux Ref input (rather than its own oscillator) as its frequency source if
the XLi's reference source(s) become unavailable.
For example, with a single GPS receiver card configured as PRIMARY in F119, and F74 – Clock Source
Control set to PRI,

F119 – GPS Receiver Configuration
1
Note: The standard XLi IEEE 1588 clock features the GPS C/A Receiver (87-8028-2). Other receiver types
are currently unavailable as options for the standard XLi IEEE 1588 clock.
Summary
Use function F119 to select a specific GPS receiver, display its status information, and configure it as a
reference source.
F119’s functions apply to all models of GPS receiver option cards available for the XLi. Where
differences exist, this manual refers to the card by its name and part number.
In F119, a GPS receivers are identified by number of the option bay where they are located. See
Figure 1 on page 7 for a diagram of the option bay numbers.
F119 provides the following GPS receiver information and status:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Availability (indicates the option bay location)
Part Number
Software Version
FPGA Number
GPS Status (Locked or Unlocked)
GPS Antenna (Ok or Open)
GPS Acquisition State (Dynamic Mode, Stop Site Survey, Stop TRAIM, Start Site Survey, Start
TRAIM, Survey Position, Position Hold)
GPS Time Reference (Primary, Secondary, or Standby) Each of F119’s information, status, and
configuration items are explained below. Because F119 is an important function, this section explains the
behavior of F119 and related functions in some detail.
Part Number, Software Version, and FPGA Number
This information is useful for identifying the option card.
GPS Status (Locked or Unlocked)
During normal operation, “Locked” means the receiver has a Time Figure of Merit (TFOM) less than or
equal to 3, or less than 100 ns Estimated Time Error (ETE). Unlocked means the TFOM is greater than
3. For additional information on “good current” GPS satellites, see “F60 – GPS Receiver Satellite List” on
page 60.
The GPS receiver serves as a time reference for the XLi system clock. To be a valid time reference, the
receiver requires the following information:
•
•
110
Current UTC time
The current position of the receiver

Following power-up and initialization, the receiver requires at least four concurrent “good current”
satellites to resolve its current position. In rare cases, when a pair of “good current” satellites are on
intersecting paths, the receiver requires additional “good current” satellites or waits for the intersecting
satellites to diverge before resolving the current position. Once resolved, the current position information
is saved.
While resolving its current position, the GPS receiver also listens for the UTC leap-second offset
periodically transmitted by GPS satellites along with GPS time and position information. Up to thirteen
minutes may elapse from the time the receiver acquires its first “good current” satellite to the time it
receives the UTC leap-second offset. Once received, the UTC leap-second offset is saved.
2
When the receiver has the UTC leap-second value, it starts providing valid time to the XLi system clock.
When the system clock is locked to the GPS time reference and is operating within specifications, the
system status is locked. The interval from initialization to system status lock is typically under twenty
minutes, under nominal conditions. This transition is illustrated below.
Following initialization, the front panel display of an XLi with only one GPS receiver (GPS Status:
Unlocked) would show the following:
1
UNLOCKED
LOCAL
* GPS PRI
365:16:01:05 1969
With the GPS receiver as a valid time reference, the following changes would take place:
•
•
The asterisk (“*”) indicating the absence of a valid reference would disappear
The system status would change to locked
The front panel status display would look like this:
LOCKED
LOCAL
GPS PRI
233:18:21:29 2004
5
Once the GPS receiver is a valid time reference, it requires at least one “good current” satellite to remain
a valid time reference. If “good current” GPS satellites become temporarily unavailable, GPS status
changes to unlocked and the XLi stops using the receiver as a valid time reference.
Typically, when a “good current” satellite becomes available again, GPS status locks and the receiver
becomes a valid time reference almost immediately. Typically, the receiver does not need extra time to
resolve its current position unless it is being used in a very mobile/dynamic environment such as an
aircraft.
If the unit is powered-cycled, the receiver repeats the complete position and leap-second acquisition
process before GPS status locks.
Note: GPS satellite visibility and signal strength affect the ability of the GPS receiver to lock and provide
valid time to the XLi. Therefore, it is very important to select the best possible antenna site.

GPS Antenna (Ok or Open)
1
The GPS antenna is powered by a 12-volt current from the ANTENNA connector on the rear of the XLi.
If this circuit is complete (e.g., connected to an antenna) GPS Antenna status is OK. If the circuit is
incomplete (e.g., no antenna, a cable break, or a splitter) the GPS Antenna status is Open. If circuit
detects a short, the receiver opens a relay to disconnect power from the circuit, and the GPS Antenna
status is Open.
GPS Time Reference (Primary, Secondary, or Standby)
Configure the GPS receiver as a Primary or Secondary time reference. This setting is used by F74 –
Clock Source Control to control switching between reference sources. Selecting Standby makes the
receiver unavailable as a reference source.
If one time reference is configured as Primary or Secondary, and another time reference is assigned the
same priority, the first time reference is reset to Standby. For example, with GPS receiver 1 configured
as Secondary, when an operator configures GPS receiver 2 as Secondary and saves changes, GPS
receiver 1 is reset to Standby.
The XLi front panel status display identifies the reference source and its priority (e.g. “GPS PRI”).
GPS Acquisition State
If the user has determined that the receiver will remain in a static location and sets the GPS operation
mode to Time Mode (See “F53 – GPS Operation Mode” on page 58.), the C/A Receiver has the
following acquisition states:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Survey Position: The receiver is establishing an initial position following a reset. If the receiver
had “current” satellites prior to being reset, it can establish the position in a matter of seconds;
otherwise establishing the position takes a few minutes.
Start TRAIM: (for Time Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring) The receiver is in Position
Hold and is monitoring the integrity of the time solution using redundant satellite measurements
in order to eliminate unreliable signal information.
Stop TRAIM: The receiver is ending TRAIM monitoring.
Start Site Survey: The receiver is checking for changes in its saved static position (occurs after
boot).
Stop Site Survey: The receiver is ending site survey.
Position Hold: The receiver has determined its most accurate position, and is using this static
position to calculate its most accurate time solution.
Dynamic Mode: The user has determined that the position of the system could change and has
set F53 GPS operation mode to Dynamic Mode (see “F53 – GPS Operation Mode” on page 58).
The system is resolving its position so that it can compensate for position changes.

The IEEE 1588 card (PTP master) located in Option Bay 4 has the following network settings:
1
•
•
•
IP address: 010.048.000.103
Subnet mask: 255.255.000.000
Gateway: 010.024.000.001
For units that have two IEEE 1588 cards, the second card (PTP slave) is located in Option Bay 2 has the
following network settings:
•
•
•
IP address: 010.048.000.105
Subnet mask: 255.255.000.000
Gateway: 010.024.000.001
Reconfigure these settings as needed for the 1588 port to operate on the timing network.
The user can reconfigure the static IP settings while DHCP is enabled. The instrument only uses the
static IP settings if DHCP is disabled, or if DHCP is enabled but the 1588 network port hasn’t received
DHCP-assigned settings.
DHCP enabled/disabled
If DHCP is enabled, the IEEE 1588 card automatically obtains IP configuration settings from a DHCP
server on the network. The default factory setting is “enabled”. The DHCP-assigned settings take
precedence over the static IP address settings. The command line interface and keypad display
interface show the DHCP-assigned IP address, subnet, and gateway separately from the static settings.
Note: Enabling DHCP reboots the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
DHCP-assigned IP address, subnet mask and default gateway for the network port
The command line and keypad display interfaces display the DHCP-assigned IP address information
separately from the static IP address information. The web interface does not display the DHCPassigned IP address information.
Since DHCP is enabled in the factory default settings, if a DHCP server is available from the IEEE 1588
network port, the DHCP-assigned IP address values should be available on the command line and
keypad display interfaces.
PTP Sync message interval
The PTP sync message interval setting determines the length of time between Sync messages multicast
by the PTP master to the PTP slaves. Shorter synchronization intervals improve the timing accuracy of
PTP slaves. Set the PTP Sync message interval to the same value on PTP masters and slaves. The
default factory setting is “2 seconds”.
IMPORTANT: If one of the PTP slaves on the timing network is a Symmetricom IEEE 1588 card,
the interval for all PTP masters and PTP slaves must be set to 2 SECONDS.

PTP burst mode enabled/disabled
With Burst mode enabled, the PTP slave initiates a rapid exchange or PTP messages with the PTP
master in order to synchronize rapidly. To work, Burst mode must be enabled on both PTP master and
slave. This corresponds to the PTP_BURST_SYNC = TRUE in a standard ptpd implementation. Burst
mode is recommended for rapid synchronization of timing networks upon startup and also with longer
sync message intervals (e.g., 64 seconds). PTP burst mode consumes network bandwidth and places
additional demand on PTP masters and slaves on the same timing network. It may saturate PTP
masters and timing networks operating near capacity, particularly if the slaves are all reinitialized at the
same time (e.g., a system wide power-cycle). The default factory setting is “disabled”.
2
PTP network port enabled/disabled
Enables or disables the PTP/1588 network port. This feature can be used to put specific PTP nodes
offline without shutting them down. The default factory setting is “Enabled”.
PTP subdomain same
1
Makes it possible to establish up to four separate timing networks on the same physical subnet. PTP
nodes only synchronize with PTP nodes of the same subdomain; they disregard PTP nodes that are part
of a different subdomain. Configure the PTP masters and PTP slaves with the same subdomain in order
for them to synchronize. The following four subdomain name settings are available: _DFLT, _ALT1,
_ALT2, and _ALT3. The default factory setting is “_DFLT”.
Reset PTP settings to factory defaults
Re-initializes the PTP node and returns the following settings to their factory defaults:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
PTP SYNC INTERVAL - 2
PTP BURST MODE - DISABLE
PTP PORT STATE - ENABLE
PTP SUBDOMAIN NAME - _DFLT
PTP CLOCK CONFIG, BAY 2 - MASTER
SLAVE SYNC THRESHOLD - 5 microsec
PTP PREFERRED MASTER - DISABLE
5
The other settings remain unchanged.
The default setting is “No”.
PTP initialize to user entered values
Re-initializes the PTP node and keeps the current parameter settings:
The default factory setting is “No”.

PTP Master or Slave (PRI/SEC/STBY)
Configures the PTP node as a PTP master or slave and determines its role as a reference source:
1
•
•
•
•
PTP MASTER - the IEEE 1588 card gets its time from the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock and functions as
a PTP master on the timing network.
PTP SLAVE PRI - the IEEE 1588 card functions as a PTP slave on the timing network and
operates as a primary reference source to the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
PTP SLAVE SEC - the IEEE 1588 card functions as a PTP slave on the timing network and
operates as a secondary reference source to the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
PTP SLAVE STBY - the IEEE 1588 card functions as a PTP slave on the timing network but does
not operate as a reference source to the XLi IEEE 1588 Clock.
See “F74 – Clock Source Control” on page 77 for more information about reference sources.
IMPORTANT: If one of the PTP slaves on the timing network is a Symmetricom IEEE 1588 card,
the interval for all PTP masters and PTP slaves must be set to 2 SECONDS.
PTP Slave Synchronization Threshold
Sets the synchronization threshold for the PTP slave to lock to the PTP master, determining whether the
F130 parameter SLAVE CLOCK SYNCHRONIZED reports LOCKED or UNLOCKED. Use the 5
microsecond setting for timing networks that traverse approximately 2 hubs or switches. Try the 1000
microsecond setting if the PTP slave is having difficulty synchronizing or remaining synchronized on
timing networks with the following characteristics:
•
•
•
Multiple layers of hubs and switches
Routers
Heavy or bursty network traffic levels
The default factory setting is “5 microseconds”.1
PTP Preferred Master Configuration
PTP slaves synchronize with PTP masters that have the preferred master setting enabled versus those
that don’t. Enable this setting to ensure that PTP slaves remain synchronized to a particular PTP master
or set of PTP masters.
The default factory setting is “Disable”.
Keypad (plus factory defaults and settings)

A: Using F100 Configuration
Configuring SNMP Parameters
Note: The NTP option is currently unavailable for the standard XLi IEEE 1588 clock.
F100 CONFIG instructs the XLi unit to transfer SNMP configuration file to an FTP server so the user can
edit it. When finished editing, the user transfers the config file back to the XLi using the F100 CONFIG
command.
2
Overview of Steps
•
•
•
•
Set up an FTP server on your workstation.
Using the XLi’s command line interface, enter the F100 CONFIG get command. The XLi
transfers copies of its configuration files over the network to the FTP on your PC.
Edit the configuration files.
Give the XLi a new command, F100 CONFIG set. The XLi retrieves copies of the edited
configuration files from the FTP and overwrites it’s current config files with the newly edited ones.
1
Set up the FTP Server
To save time and trouble, download a pre-configured FTP server from http://www.ntp-systems.com/zip/
warftpd1.zip and extract it to the C:\ drive on your workstation. Otherwise, customize your existing FTP
server setup as described in this section.
When performing these operations, the user issues command line instructions to the XLi. The XLi
responds to those commands by connecting to the FTP server and transferring files to and from the FTP.
The XLi gives the FTP server ‘Anonymous’ as its user name, and uses a null password (e.g., the
equivalent of pressing the Enter key on your keyboard instead of entering text). The FTP server must be
configured as follows:
5
•
•
•
Anonymous log-ins are enabled
The password for Anonymous is disabled, or allows a null password
Anonymous has read/write privileges to Anonymous’s home directory.
Get the IP Address of the FTP Server/Workstation
If the FTP server is running on your Windows workstation, open a DOS command line window on the
workstation:
•
•
•
•
Click Start, Run, and type cmd, or
Click Start, Programs, (and Accessories in some cases), and select Command prompt or
DOS prompt.
At the command line, type ipconfig
Make note of the IP Address.

For other operating systems and configurations, consult the appropriate documentation for obtaining the
FTP server’s IP address.
1
Copy the Configuration Files to the FTP Server
Telnet to the XLi or open a terminal session to it over the serial port.
Using the command line, enter the commands below. Replace <IP Address> with that of the
workstation/FTP Server. Leave <subdir> blank - the FTP server will save the files in anonymous’s
home directory.
Note: See “Command Line Interface” on page 29 if you need instructions for connecting to the command line interface
To get the SNMP config file, type:
>f100 config snmp get host:<IP Address> dir:<subdir>
Here’s an example of a successful SNMP config file transfer:
>f100 config snmp get host:192.168.0.1 dir:
Host config ip 192.168.0.1 already configured
Source file /config/snmp.conf bytes read: 1275
Dest file snmp.conf bytes written: 1275
Configuration files transferred successfully!
If you get “Error: Can’t write file” when you enter the get command, verify the following FTP
server items:
•
•
•
FTP server is running.
Anonymous has a home directory.
The home directory for Anonymous has read, write, and delete enabled (make sure to apply
changes).
Edit the Configuration Files
In Windows, edit the configuration files using a text editor such as Notepad or Wordpad.
If using the pre configured FTP server (downloaded from http://www.ntp-systems.com/zip/warftpd1.zip),
the FTP places the configuration files in C:\TrueTime, the default or home directory of “anonymous”.
Note: Follow these guidelines when editing the configuration files:
•
•
•
142
If the editor displays odd 'box' characters or the lines of text don't wrap properly, close the file
without saving changes and switch to a different text editor.
Don't rename or save the configuration files as a new file type.
Some text editors encode end-of-line carriage returns that cause errors when XLi refers to the
file. Notepad, WordPad, Microsoft Word, and Vim don't seem to have this problem.

The configuration files are automatically transferred to/from the FTP server in binary format.
They retain the DOS or UNIX file conventions of the editor. XLi works with either format.
Move the Configuration Files Back to the XLi
Reboot Warning: The following steps cause the XLi to reboot.
Using the XLi’s command line, enter one of the commands below, replacing
<IP Address> with the IP address of your workstation/FTP server.
To move the SNMP config file, type:
2
>f100 config snmp set host:<IP Address> dir:<subdir>
Here’s an example of a successful SNMP config file transfer:
>>f100 config set snmp host:192.168.0.1 dir:
Host config ip 192.168.0.1 already configured
Are you sure(y/N)?y

B: Upgrading System Firmware
Caution: Consideration must be given to the firmware and the hardware version numbers of the XLi and it’s optional components. Consult with Symmetricom’s Customer Service department before performing upgrades.
This section explains how to completely upgrade the system firmware. This is done using the F100 BH,
F100 BUB, F100 BU, and F100 BF commands.
Overview of Procedure
•
•
•
•
•
Set up a network connection between your XLi and the FTP server.
Set up an FTP Server with the firmware upgrade files.
Open a command line session to the XLi.
Install the firmware version 8 files.
Reboot the XLi.
2
Note: If your system’s and SNMP configuration file (snmp.conf) has been customized, make a backup
1
copy and later re-install that configuration file. See “A: Using F100 Configuration” on page 141.
Set up the FTP Server
To save time and trouble, download a preconfigured FTP server from http://www.ntp-systems.com/zip/
warftpd1.zip and extract it to the C:\ drive on your workstation. Otherwise, customize your existing FTP
server setup as described in this section.
When performing these operations, the user issues command line instructions to the XLi. The XLi
responds to those commands by connecting to the FTP server and burning the software to system
memory. The XLi gives the FTP server ‘Anonymous’ as its user name, and uses a null password (e.g.,
the equivalent of pressing the Enter key on your keyboard instead of entering text). The FTP server must
be configured as follows:
•
•
•
Anonymous log-ins are enabled
The password for Anonymous is disabled, or allows a null password
Anonymous has read/write privileges to Anonymous’s home directory.
5
Obtain the current system firmware files (E.g., 192-8001.bin, 192-8000.bt, 192-8002.fs) from
Symmetricom’s customer support website.
Place the system firmware upgrade files in home directory of the ‘anonymous’ user. If you’re using the
preconfigured FTP server, C:\TrueTime is the default or home directory.
Open a Command Line Session on the XLi
Note: The XLi and FTP server need to be connected by a TCP/IP network. Ideally they should be on an
isolated subnet. Connecting them over a network with multiple ‘hops’ or one with heavy network
traffic raises the possibility that the system software files could be corrupted, yielding the XLi
inoperable.

Telnet to the XLi over the network. For example, at your workstations command line, type “telnet
192.168.46.10”.
1
When prompted, log in to the unit using the operator’s username and password; the user name and
password are usually “operator” and “janus”.
Upgrade the Firmware
Command Format
When issuing the firmware upgrade commands, use the following format:
F100 <command> <ftp_server_ip_address> <relative_path>/<file.ext>
If the FTP server is on your workstation, <ftp_server_ip_address> is the IP address of your
workstation.
<relative_path> is a subdirectory inside the anonymous user’s home directory on the FTP server. If
there is no subdirectory (i.e., if the upgrade files are sitting in anonymous user’s home directory), drop
<relative_path> from the command line.
For example, if c:/ftpworkfiles is the anonymous user’s home directory, and the upgrade files are in c:/
ftpworkfiles/xli/, you would enter the command as follows:
F100 bh 192.168.49.120 xli/192-8000.bt
On the other hand, if the files are in c:/ftpworkfiles, the anonymous user’s home directory, you would
drop the <relative_path> and enter the command as follows:
F100 bh 192.168.49.120 /192-8000.bt
Issuing the Upgrade Commands
Adapt the following examples as needed to match your system, such as differences in IP address,
path, and filename).
Enter the following command:
F100 bh <IP_address> <relative_path>/<file.bt>
For example:
F100 bh 192.168.49.120 /192-8000.bt
XLi responds:
BURN HOST IS READY<CR><LF>
Then ‘burn’ the bootloader to the XLi’s flash memory by entering:
F100 bub

The “K I L L” command reboots your unit. You have completed the firmware upgrade procedure
Troubleshooting
Most problems upgrading the firmware are due to problems with the configuration of the FTP server,
such as:
•
•
•
•
setting the server to accept a null password
configuring the anonymous home directory
setting the correct access rights
entering the correct relative file path
The following error messages may provide some indication of the underlying problem:
Message: >Can't set the burn host - wrong IP address
Cause: The IP address entered for the FTP server is incorrect. Check that you've entered the IP address
of the FTP server (not the XLi) and re-enter if necessary.

Message: >Can't open file: 192-####.##
Cause: There's a problem with the FTP server that is preventing access to the file. Verify the following:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The FTP server is correctly configured.
The anonymous user account is enabled.
The anonymous user account password is “guest”.
The anonymous user account has read access to the ftpworkfiles directory.
The ftpworkfiles directory located in the anonymous user's home directory.
The FTP server is running.
There aren’t any other ‘anonymous’ users logged into the FTP server.
2
Try connecting to the FTP server as ‘anonymous’ using an FTP client. You should automatically see the
product name directory (e.g., “XLi”) you created inside the anonymous users home directory (e.g.,
“c:\ftpworkfiles\”). Open the product name directory. You should see the firmware upgrade files you put
there. If either the product name directory or the firmware upgrade files aren’t visible, there’s a problem
with the FTP configuration.
1
Message: >Wrong File type
You may be using the wrong firmware files for the product being upgraded. This may be due to the
incorrect files being place in the upgrade directory. It may also be that the wrong directory was entered
(one for another product) in the path information on the F100 command line. ‘Wrong file type’ is also
associated with ‘Can’t open file’ errors - see the preceding message.
Message: Unit hangs on “Burning Boot” message.
Check that your IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway of the XLi are correctly configured.
FAQ
How does one check the unit’s firmware version number?
5
Log on to the XLi and enter the following command:
> F100 VER
An example XLi response is:
F100 VER
BOOTLOADER
SOFTWARE
FILE SYSTEM
NVRAM VER
PROJ REV
192-8000
192-8001
192-8002v1.80
5
#1.80
The “PROJ REV” number is the firmware version number. The “v” number in “FILE SYSTEM” is the file
system version number, which may not be the same as the firmware version number.

How does one check the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway of the
XLi?
1
Log on to the XLi and enter the following command:
> F100 IC
F100 IP:192.168.47.156 SM:255.255.255.0 G:192.168.47.1
Is the null modem cable necessary? What if I’m upgrading a XLi remotely?
The null-modem cable is optional. If you decide to Telnet to the XLi over TCP/IP network, you don’t need
the null modem cable.
I’m using a null modem cable to connect to the XLi from my laptop and the
XLi keeps rebooting?
An ungrounded voltage level on one of the pins in the null modem cable causes the unit to reset. Use
one of the following work-arounds:
•
•
Connect the laptop to a grounded power supply, if it has one, or ground the laptop’s chassis.
Do away with the null modem cable. Telnet to the unit over the network.
Use a regular PC instead of the laptop. The PC is connected to a grounded power supply and doesn’t
cause this problem.

Editing snmp.conf
By default, SNMP is disabled. To enable SNMP or configure its parameters, follow the steps outlined
below. Please open, edit, save, and close the snmp.conf file without changing its name or saving it as a
new file type. An example “snmp.conf” file might look like the following, with each string that follows
NAME= appearing as a single line in the text file:

Key:
MIB=/config/ttmib.o,
Don’t touch. This is a factory setting.
GenTraps=YES,
Global enable/disable setting for all SNMP traps. YES, the default setting,
enables all traps. NO disables all traps. This setting overrides all the other TRAP
parameter settings.
NAME =
the community name password. This should be the same as the community
name being used by the administrator's
VIND =
View Index. This is a reserved term that has no effect and is currently unused in
SNMP. This parameter should be set to “1”.
TRAP =
YES enables/NO disables SNMP traps for a particular community.
ACCESS =
Read and write privileges to members of a community. R sets read only
privileges, and W sets read and write privileges.
IP =
Provide the IP address of the SNMP management stations within that
community. These addresses are required in order for the management station
to receive SNMP traps and to communicate with the XLi system using SNMP.

Note: A special address of 255.255.255.255 grants any IP addressed unit
access to the Enterprise MIB variables.
SNMP Private Enterprise MIB Structure
This section describes the top level structure & design of the XLi SNMP Private Enterprise MIB.
5
SNMP Addressing
SNMP addressing is structured as a very large tree database. A root node address is an integer value
that ranges from 0 to some very large number. Conceptually, there are no limits to the numbers of sub
nodes either. SNMP addressing is written in “doted decimal” notation. For example the address of
Symmetricom’s ntpInPkts Enterprise MIB variable is “1.3.6.1.4.1..1896.6.1.2.1.1.0”. The address
fragment 1.3.6.1.4.1 is fixed by the IANA (Internet Assigned Number Authority) and is the address of the
SNMP Private Enterprise MIB’s. The 1896 is the address assigned by IANA to Symmetricom for our
Enterprise MIB’s. Symmetricom assigns the addresses after that at our discretion and design.
New Top Level Structure of Enterprise MIB for XLi
The former address structure of Symmetricom’s Enterprise MIB is as follows:
TrueTimeEnt = 1896
TrapMsg = 1
ntp = 2
XLi IEEE 1588 Clock
997-01510-03, Rev. C, 12/12/2006
ntsControl = 3
gps = 4

For the XLi, groups 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 have been deprecated and a new group 6, products, has been
added. For the XLi and future Symmetricom products, groups 1 through 5 will be absent from the XLi
Enterprise MIB definition supplied with the unit. The top structure for the XLi is:
TrueTimeEnt

The level under the xli group is divided into four groups; the first two of which will be explained later. The
optionCardGroup has all the available option cards under it. Under each option card is a table for that
option card type because there may be multiple cards of that type within an XLi chassis.
The current traps message group is located under the fault. The ntp group is under the xliMainCard
group as an option, and is related to only to NTP on the standard network port on the XLi’s Main CPU
card. For each instance of an NTP option card, the NTP group will be repeated under the optionCards
group. GPS is located under the optionCards group, and is repeated for each GPS option card. The
ntsControl and acts groups have not been implemented for the XLi.

This MIB structure also provides a useful definition for the system object ID. SNMP managers may use
the system object ID to identify the class of object being accessed. With this structure, the system object
ID is defined as Truetime.products.xli for the XLi product and Truetime.products.xxx for all subsequent
products.
XLi System Group
The XLI system group contains the xliFault and the xliStatus groups. These groups contain information
describing the operation of the XLI system as a whole. The xliFault group contains information
concerning system faults that have occurred, as well as configuration parameters for the generation of
system alarms, called traps in SNMP, resulting from those faults. The xliStatus provides two different
views of the operational system. The first is a general view specifying if the clock is operational. The
second is a detailed view containing the current status of each system component. The xliFault and
xliStatus groups are described below.

The XLI systemAlarmData group defines SNMP traps and cannot be directly retrieved by the SNMP
manager. When a system alarm event occurs an SNMP trap alarmSystemNotification is sent to the
SNMP managers previously configured to receive traps. Included in the trap message are the variables
contained in the systemAlarmData group: IP address, timestamp, alarm code, and the F73 status string.
The systemFaultConfig sub-group contains parameters to control the generation of system alarms. The
timeout, threshold and power on suppress values are contained in the systemFaultConfigData group.
Also in this group is a method object configDataLatchClear. By setting this object the user clears all
latched faults. Reading the configDataLatchClear object has no effect and its value is not defined. The
systemFaultConfigMasks group contains masks for each possible system alarm event. When the status
changes, for example if the primary GPS becomes unlocked, the associated mask is checked. Only if
the mask is enabled will a system alarm be generated.
2
The systemFaultHistory group contains latched status indicators for each of the system alarm events. If
a system alarm event goes into fault status, even if this status is transient, then the associated entry in
the systemFaultHistory group will maintain a record of that fault occurrence until the latch is cleared,
using the configDataLatchClear object, resetting all systemFaultHistory entries.

the reference clock source. The systemStatusGeneralGroup also contains the statusDescriptorStr object
that returns a text string identical to the output of the F73 command on the command line interface. The
systemStatusDetail group contains objects describing the current status of each system object. See the

XLi Traps
All traps for the XLI product are defined under Truetime.products.xli.xliTraps. This is required to maintain
compatibility with MIBS defined using the Structure of Management Information version 1 definitions.
The XLI SNMP agent will send SNMP version 1 traps. This is done to maintain compatibility with
SNMPv1 managers.
The traps presently defined are: alarmSystemNotification
The alarmSystemNotification trap is sent when the state of an object in the systemStatusDetail group
changes and the corresponding mask object in the configDataMasks group is enabled.
Future Expansion
This section outlines the possibilities for future expansion of the TrueTime Enterprise MIB. The general
overview is that new objects may be added to any location. Existing objects may not be altered in order

to maintain backward compatibility. There are two varieties of expansions to consider: additional
products and additional features within an existing product.
This model makes adding additional products and maintaining compatibility a straightforward process.
Each additional product will be given a branch in the tree under enterprises.Truetime.products. For now,
we have only enterprises.Truetime.products.xli and enterprises.Truetime.products.nic56k.
Future products will take the form enterprises.Truetime.products.product.XXX. Each product will use
enterprises.Truetime.products.product.XXX as its system object identifier. Each product will also define
an enterprises.Truetime.products.product.XXX.xxxTrap subgroup for the definition of all enterprise
specific traps that can be generated by that product.
2
Making additions to the XLI product MIB is also a straightforward task with several caveats. The first is
that additions may be made but the object identifier and the semantics of existing objects may not be
altered. A likely place for additions is under the systemStatusDetail group as addition system objects are
defined.
A place holder group xliOptionCards has been defined but currently has no accessible members. This
group will be used for the management of optional add on cards. It is suggested that each sub-group
under xliOptionCards be defined as a table to allow for the possibility of multiple option cards of a
particular type.

Glossary of SNMP-Related Terms
Depreciation: In SNMP when an SNMP variable or group of variables is no longer recommended for
use, they are listed as deprecated in the formal definition of the MIB. Users are often times still allowed
to use this data, but the MIB’s authors for one reason or another no longer recommend it.
Enterprise MIB: See Private Enterprise MIB.
IANA - Internet Assigned Number Authority: This is the group at IETF that is in charge of assigning
Internet related numbers like Ethernet addresses, TCP/UDP port numbers and SNMP Private Enterprise
MIB numbers.
5
IETF – Internet Engineering Task Force: The group responsible for standardizing numerous Internet
communication protocols.
Management agent: An Internet connected remote host that accumulates the raw data that is entered
into the MIB and Enterprise MIB for that host. This data is at some point transmitted to a Management
station. In other network applications this would be called a network server of the SNMP protocol.
Management station: An Internet connected remote host that consumes SNMP data provided by a
Management agent for the display of human network managers. In other network applications this would
be called a client of the SNMP protocol.
MIB – Management Information Base: This is the data structure for the SNMP protocol. The current
version of this standard, that is in general use, is MIB II defined by RFC’s 1213 and 1212.

NTP – Network Time Protocol: A network time distribution protocol developed at the University of
Delaware under the direction of Dr. Mills. NTP is a client / server based protocol where the server is the
supplier of time and the client is the consumer of the time information.
1
Private Enterprise MIB: SNMP allows private organizations to define their own MIB extensions. The
IANA of the IETF issues, for a fee, a unique number to an organization that is an address entry point
from the MIB II into the private data for that organization. Only one Enterprise address is assigned to an
organization. The Enterprise address for Symmetricom is 1896. This address space has grown to over
12,000 private addresses and Symmetricom is by comparison one of the earlier adopters of SNMP with
an Enterprise MIB!
RFC – Request for Comments: A document reviewed and released by the IANA that defines the formal
definitions of various Internet communication protocols and related information.
SNMP – Simple Network Management Protocol: This Internet communications protocol is used for
the status and control of remote network devices. Numerous IANA standards committees starting in
1990 and continuing to day define this protocol.
Trap or Trap Message: A packet issued from an SNMP Management agent to an SNMP Management
station. The message is intended to relay and important even that occurred within the agent that requires
attention or notification.

E: Time Code Formats
The following section provides a summary description of the three time code types used by the XLi. The
definitive IRIG time code specification, the Range Commanders Council’s IRIG Serial Time Code
Formats, IRIG Standard 200-98, is available on the Web at http://jcs.mil/RCC/manuals/200/
Overview
2
Please refer to the Input and Output specifications in the front of the manual for details regarding the
voltage amplitudes / modulation ratios of the following time codes provided or used by the Model XLi.
IRIG
Introduction
1
The document 200 95 "IRIG STANDARD TIME FORMATS" by the Telecommunications Working Group,
Inter range Instrumentation Group, Range Commanders Council describes IRIG-B and IRIG-A time
codes.
The standard time formats of IRIG codes were designed for use in missile, satellite and space research
programs. Use of these codes facilitates efficient interchange of test data. These formats are suitable
for recording on magnetic tape, oscillographs, film and for real time transmission in both automatic and
manual data reduction. IRIG-B from the Model XLi is suitable for remote display driving, magnetic tape
recording and many other uses. IRIG codes, in the strict sense, encode Universal Coordinated Time
(UTC) in 24 hour format and not local time. Nonetheless, this instrument can encode UTC or local time
in either 24 or 12 hour formats.
IRIG Code Format
5
Reference “IRIG Standard Format A” on page 192. The level shifted, pulse width modulated, serial
formats of IRIG-B and IRIG-A are divided into three segments. The first segment encodes time of year
in binary coded decimal (BCD) notation. The second segment encodes control functions. This segment
is generally available for data of the user's choice. In the IRIG-B code output of Model XLi, this segment
encodes worst case time error flags as explained below. The IRIG-A output from Model XLi does not
include control functions. The third segment sometimes encodes time of day in straight binary seconds
(SBS) notation. Both IRIG-B and IRIG-A encode SBS on the Model XLi.
The three code segments are contained within one "frame". The frame length for IRIG-B is 1 second
long and contains 100 "elements" (pulses) each of which start every 10 milliseconds. The frame length
for IRIG-A is 1/10 seconds and contains 100 elements each of which starts every 1 millisecond.
An element may represent either a binary zero, a binary one, a reference marker or a position identifier.
A zero is 0.2 of the duration of an element, a one is 0.5 of the duration of an element and a position
identifier or reference marker is 0.8 of the duration of an element. A reference marker locates the

beginning of each frame and a position identifier marks the end of every ten elements. IRIG-B and IRIGA have ten position identifiers per frame.
1
The elements prior to position identifier P5 comprise the time of year segment. The first ten elements
encode the seconds, the second ten elements encode the minutes and so on through days. Each
element is a digit in a binary number with a place value sequence 1 2 4 8.
IRIG-B Time Quality Flags
Five flags are encoded in the control function segment of the IRIG-B code. The first flag encoded at
element P5+40ms is the LOCK indicator. It is a binary 1 when the XLi is not locked to a reference. The
second flag encoded at element P5+60ms is a binary 1 when the worst case time error exceeds
threshold 1 (refer to "Function 5 -- Time Quality Enable/Setup"). Element P5+70ms is a binary 1 when
the worst case time error exceeds threshold 2. Element P5+80ms encodes a binary 1 when the error
exceeds threshold 3 and P5+90ms when the error exceeds threshold 4.
Output
The XLi provides the following IRIG time code outputs (refer to IRIG Standard 200-95):
IRIG-B: B120
B000
IRIG-A: A133
A003
1 KHz sine wave amplitude modulated with BCD, CF, SBS
DC level shift, width coded with BCD, CF, SBS
1 KHz sine wave amplitude modulated with BCD, SBS
DC level shift, width coded with BCD, SBS
Input
The XLi can also synchronize and lock to IRIG-B and IRIG-A input codes. The required input code does
not need to have the CF or SBS elements. The XLi only decodes the BCD portion of the incoming code.
IRIG-B: B122
1 kHz sine wave amplitude modulated with BCD
B002 DC level shift, width coded with BCD
IRIG-A: A132
10 kHz sine wave amplitude modulated with BCD, SBS
A002 DC level shift, width coded with BCD, SBS
NASA 36
Introduction
The NASA 36 time code is similar to the previously mentioned IRIG codes. The NASA 36 code frame
also contains 100 bit elements like the IRIG codes. In the strict sense, NASA 36 encodes Universal

Coordinated Time (UTC) in 24 hour format and not local time. Nonetheless, this instrument can encode
UTC or local time in either 24 or 12 hour formats.
NASA 36 Code Format
The level shifted, pulse width modulated, serial format of NASA 36 is divided into two segments. The
first segment encodes time of year in binary coded decimal (BCD) notation. The second segment
encodes control functions (unused on Model XLi).
The two code segments are contained within one "frame". The frame length for NASA 36 is 1 second
long and contains 100 "elements" (pulses) each of which start every 10 milliseconds.
2
An element may represent either a binary zero, a binary one, a reference marker or a position identifier.
A zero is 2 ms, a one is 6 ms, a position identifier is 6 ms. A reference marker is 5 consecutive position
identifiers. A reference marker locates the beginning of each frame.
Output
The XLi provides the following NASA 36 time code outputs:
1
NASA 36 (AM):1 KHz sine wave amplitude modulated BCD
NASA 36 (DC):DC level shift, width coded BCD
Input
The XLi can also synchronize and lock to the following NASA 36 input codes.
NASA 36 (AM):1 KHz sine wave amplitude modulated BCD
NASA 36 (DC):DC level shift, width coded BCD

Glossary of IEEE 1588-related Terms
Boundary Clock: Generally a switch with more than a single IEEE 1588 equipped port, which is a slave
on one port and a master on all others.
Grandmaster Clock: Within an IEEE 1588 subdomain, a Grandmaster clock is the ultimate source of
time for clock synchronization using the IEEE 1588 protocol.
IEEE 1588 Ordinary Clock: A IEEE 1588 clock with a single port. Precision Time Protocol (PTP): The
protocol defined by the IEEE 1588 standard.
2
Transparent Clock: In IEEE 1588 terminology, it is a switch that compensates for its own queuing
delays. Neither master or slave.
