The ES-166U/LX-166U is a Time Code display featuring 1" Amber LED displays. The unit accepts, via the rear-mounted BNC connector, either ESE Time Code™ (TC76™, TC89™, or TC90™) or SMPTE/EBU Time Code (Time of Day only). RS-232C ASCII Time Code (format "0", "1" or "A" at 9600 baud) may be input via the rear-mounted 9-pin connector.

The 166U will automatically determine which code is being received. An internal DIP switch is used to configure the display for 12 or 24 Hour format, or to display the Date instead of time-of-day (if incoming time code contains Date information, such as ESE TC90, date-encoded SMPTE/EBU or ASCII formats "1" or "A").

If the Time Zone option is ordered, an internal DIP switch is installed for this function. If receiving ESE Time Code™ from a timer, the unit will display Minutes, Seconds and Tenths of Seconds (if the timer has the Tenths option).

The unit may be housed in one of several enclosures: the black anodized aluminum case (ES-166U); the more rugged baked-powdercoat aluminum case (LX-166U); a 19" x 3.5" panel/chassis (ES-166UP) or a wall-mount case (ES-166U/Wall).
