External Frequency Source
Stable Frequency and Timing
The Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source is a high-precision laboratory-grade reference source that provides a stable and accurate 10MHz signal, 1 pulse per second (1pps), and time of day (ToD) reference. It can be used with any suitable lab equipment to provide a reliable and precise time/phase/frequency reference. The device is capable of running in GPS mode, where it receives timing information from GPS satellites to provide an extremely accurate reference source. In the event of a GPS signal outage, the device can also operate in holdover mode, providing a stable reference for an extended period of time. The Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source can also be used to provide reference clock signals to Calnex testers or any other laboratory equipment, making it a versatile and essential tool for precision timing applications in a variety of industries.
The Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source provides a stable and precise reference source for time, phase, and frequency in a laboratory setting. It is ideal for use in applications that require a high degree of accuracy, such as research and development, telecommunications, and manufacturing.
One of the most notable features of the Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source is its ability to operate in GPS mode. This means that the device uses signals from GPS satellites to provide a highly accurate and stable reference for time and frequency. GPS signals are very reliable and provide an exceptionally precise timing reference, which makes the Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source an invaluable tool for applications where timing accuracy is critical.
However, there may be instances where GPS signals are temporarily unavailable or unreliable. In such cases, the Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source can switch to holdover mode, where it continues to provide a stable reference source based on its internal clock. This feature ensures that the device can maintain timing accuracy even during short periods when GPS signals are unavailable.
Another benefit of the Calnex RB/GPS Reference Source is its ability to provide reference signals to other lab equipment. This means that the device can be used to synchronize the timing of multiple instruments or devices, ensuring that they all operate in perfect sync. This capability is particularly important in applications where precise timing is required, such as in telecommunications or research and development.
