50-ch GPS-referred clock syncs comms, defence & wireless applications

January 04, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
TRAK Microwave, a microwave brand of Smiths Interconnect, has added a GPS Time and frequency clock to its range. The 8835 GPS Clock offers multiple power and interoperability options while maintaining leading GPS accuracy and reliability.

While tracking GPS, this clock exhibits a frequency accuracy of <1x10 -12 and a 1 PPS accuracy with <50 nsec RMS. The proprietary oscillator steering discipline algorithm can enhance the RMS accuracy of either the double oven crystal oscillator, or optional enhanced rubidium oscillator for greater depths of accuracy.


For interoperability, the 8835’s 10/100 base-T Ethernet interface can apply a range of network protocols including NTP, SNMP, Telnet, SSH, and FTP for status and control . The unit can also accept a variety of power sources including 24 VDC, 48 VDC, or 100-240 VAC with an external AC/DC converter.


Suited to defence, SatCom, and wireless applications, this configurable device operates from -30C to +60C with a TNC GPS receiver port.
