The units are designed for use in WI-
An internal back up oscillator is continuously calibrated to GPS using an advanced algorithm, providing optimal frequency control of the oscillator, ensuring that the highest time and frequency accuracy is maintained if satellite tracking is lost.
Base level units units provide a precision OCXO frequency standard, while TCXO and Rubidium oscillators are available to deliver a variety of price and performance options. A combination option employing a low noise OCXO phase locked to a rubidium is also available, offering the low noise characteristic of an OCXO with the long term stability of a rubidium.
The NFS 220 is commonly specified where precision, reliability and cyber security are key considerations. These precision units are thoroughly proven worldwide as reliable and accurate time and frequency references.
Real time “at a glance” status indication is available via the front panel LED’s together with a large time, day and year display on the NFS-
using the Ethernet and serial ports.
The units are designed for simple integration into military platforms by allowing synchronization from Have Quick time codes, available on military SA-
The integrated Ethernet interface provides Network Time Protocol (NTP) synchronization over a network with a built in web server that facilitates setup, control and logging using a standard web browser such as Internet Explorer. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows straight forward integration with industry standard network management systems.
Three 1PPS time mark outputs are provided together with a unique feature that allows precisely controlled delays to be
inserted into these outputs to compensate for cable and other propagation delays. Compensation delay is independent for each output and has <1ns resolution.
Serial time code outputs are provided to allow time synchronization to be distributed to computers, displays, and other
equipment requiring precision time. Two outputs are dedicated to Have Quick time code.
Two outputs (one modulated, one DC level shift) may be user selected from IRIG A, IRIG B, IRIG E, IRIG G.
Four low phase noise 10 MHz sine wave outputs from the disciplined oscillator are provided. Signal amplitude is software programmable.
All outputs are provided with activity detectors. Loss of any output is indicated by means of a individual front panel alarm LED as well as through the network interface or a discrete alarm output.
