SAN JOSE, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom ®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM), a worldwide leader in precision time and frequencytechnologies, today introduced the Precise Time-Scale System, an industry leading, turnkey timing system that allows government and national metrology laboratories to easily establish a highly precise and reliable timing reference without the need for various system components from multiple vendors and complex customization. The Precise Time-Scale System comes completely operational in a unit as small as one instrument rack, offering industry-leading frequency stability and phase noise performance from a convenient, single source. This translates into ease of operation, lower cost of ownership and trouble-free maintenance during the life cycle of the system.
For government agencies and metrology laboratories responsible for establishing a reliable and accurate timing reference for national or international time keeping, precision time-scale system performance and reliability are mission-critical needs. Historically, such systems required components from multiple vendors, resulting in unpredictable performance, and complex integration and on-going management. The Symmetricom Precise Time-Scale System delivers local coordinated universal time (UTC) in a time scale with state-of-the-art stability and phase noise configured to perform in a single rack that is easy to use and manage around the world.
Key features of the Precise Time-Scale System include:
- Multi-channel measurement
- A high performance Cesium clock
- Frequency accuracy of +/-1E-14
- Time accuracy to 10ns RMS to UTC
- World-class KAS 2 time-scale algorithm that estimates time error of clocks
- Easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI)
