Sync Dock Functions

The Sync Dock is a device used to recharge the battery of Mini Beacons. A maximum of 20 Mini Beacons can be docked onto 20 docking cases in the Sync Dock. While docked, the Mini Beacons automatically sync with the TimeKeeper of the BTSystem.

Sync Dock Panel Connections and Indicators

  • Power: Plug power input into the Power Jack Connector from the AC power adapter.
  • Sync Input (BNC): Connect and receive sync calibration data from the TimeKeeper of the BlackTrax System through the BNC connector.
    • Note: From the TimeKeeper, use a BNC splitter to split the BNC connection. One end of the BNC split connects to the eSync (normal connection) and the other end of the BNC split connects to the Sync Dock.
  • Sync Output (BNC): Connect and send sync calibration data to another Sync Dock through the BNC connector.
    • Note: You can daisy chain multiple Sync Docks through the Sync Input and Sync Output connections to sync several Sync Docks and Mini Beacons at once. You can daisy chain a maximum of 16 Sync Docks with 320 Mini Beacons at once.
  • Ethernet: Connect to the Device Manager through the ethernet connection.
  • Blue LED: When the Sync Dock is plugged into a power source, the blue LED at the front panel lights up.
  • Green LED: When the Sync Dock is receiving sync transmission from the BTSystem, the green LED at the front panel lights up.

Mini Beacon Docking

  • Mini Beacon Sync: When a Mini Beacon is placed on the Sync Dock, it will take about 1 minute for the Mini Beacon to fully sync with the TimeKeeper. When the Mini Beacon is placed on the Sync Dock, its LED is turned off until it is removed. 
  • Blue LED (on each single dock casing): Indicates the sync status of the docked Mini Beacon. This LED flashes while the Mini Beacon is syncing and turns solid when sync is complete.
    • Note: If a Mini Beacon is removed from the Sync Dock before calibration is complete, the Mini Beacon will not turn its LED on.
  • Green LED (on each single dock casing): Indicates power of the docked Mini Beacon. This LED flashes while the Mini Beacon is charging, and turns solid when charging is complete. 
  • Mini Beacon Charging: A Mini Beacon will take about 2 hours to complete charge.
