, 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)
The Precise Time-Scale System comes with measurement hardware and software, a real-time clock with a variety of outputs, a database server, battery backup equipment, as well as on-site installation and training provided by Symmetricom. In addition, the system can be upgraded to add two additional Cesium clocks to the rack and three Cesium or MHM2010 Active Hydrogen Clocks externally to improve the system's overall performance.
