Rubidium frequency standards are a low-drift alternative to an OCXO or TCXO with stability of < 1 ppb/year. As high-precision oscillators, Rubidium frequency standards are especially useful for measurement, testing, and many telecommunication applications. To further enhance a Rubidium based frequency reference, Novus offers Rubidium frequency references with an embedded low phase noise OCXO to meet system frequency reference phase noise requirements. A Rubidium reference is alternative source if a GPS disciplined oscillator is not an option.
Affording excellent stability, Rubidium frequency standards are a next best choice when operating in a GPS denied environment. That being said, adding a GPS-locking system will improve the 1ppb/year drift by approximately three orders of magnitude. For typical telecommunication infrastructure, GPS, or other types of applications, Rubidium standards offer excellent holdover performance.
A solid, 16 channel platform. Rubidium source provides outstanding stability < +-5E-11/month. Transient and fault protected channels designed for the a high level electromagnetic environment to provide years of reliable service. AC and DC power, SNMP options available for critical installations.
•16 channel 10 MHz reference
•Rubidium Stability <+-5E-11/month
•16 channels very often eliminate the need for a distribution amplifier.
•Harmonics are well below -30dB.
•Chassis is 1 RU (~1.7 inches) and saves valuable rack space.
•All inputs and outputs are transient protected.
Optional Networking and SNMP available (for a 10 channel platform see NR2310D-O/G )
The NR2316D-ROG offers low noise and GNSS locking
