Novus offers a range of GNSS GPS disciplined oscillators and related reference products. While our most popular frequency reference is 10MHz, many of our products are available at 50 and 100 MHz. Unique frequencies are available as well. Novus references can be OCXO , TCXO or Rubidium based. GNSS-locking enhances long-term stability. Stability options are available that incorporate vibration and thermal isolation. Our reference products are available in 19 inch rack mount and modular, chassis. Our miniature PicoPod series fits almost anywhere. Novus reference distribution amplifiers offer minimal phase noise contribution and skewing. Novus PPS sources can be synchronized to a 10 MHz reference to provide a complete timing solution. Our PPS sources can be directly from a GPS PPS source or processed to improve jitter and statistical accuracy. For GNSS denied environments, Novus offers a range synthesized 1PPS sources. Our PPS distribution amplifiers offer sub 1 nsec skewing and transient and fault protection. For enhanced control and monitoring, SNMP and local control are available as options. Portable reference products offer excellent holdover stability to provide accuracy in GNSS denied environments.
The NP3001 accepts timing information from either an embedded GNSS receiver or an external NMEA/PPS source. Each source can be prioritized. Once synchronized the unit will produce NMEA and PPS from the selected source. If all sources fail, the unit becomes a simulator based upon its internal OCXO. Battery backup allows the unit to be synchronized and then used to bring timing information into a GNSS denied environment. Front panel display provides equipment status and facilitates the equipment configuration. The 26 Channel GNSS receiver quickly acquires and can be programmed to produce a PPS pulse once an accuracy level has been achieved or to produce a PPS from a TCXO source continuously. NMEA data streams can be programmed to content and baud rates. The unit may also be powered from a DC source or a Novus power adapter.
GPS DO Kits are available that include antenna, cables and power supply. Several features can be customized at the factory – frequencies other than 10 MHz either from a unique crystal or with a built-in synthesizer that is GNSS-locked. Time stamping capability to 100ns resolution. To meet unique requirements, we have shipped product with output features requiring a custom amplitude, square wave output, high voltage and high current drive.
