3203A & 3204A GlobalTyme Multi Function GPS Receivers

The ptf GlobalTymeTM Multi Function GPS Receiver provides extraordinary stability in a highly flexible approach to using the caesium stability of the GPS satellite system. Available in both 1U (3203A) and 2U (3204A) versions, the GlobalTymeTM can be configured as a high performance frequency standard, a comprehensive time standard, or both.
Frequency standard performance is application tailored with a range of local oscillator options including TCXO(standard), OCXO, Ultra Low noise oscillator, rubidium, and high performance rubidium.
In standard configuration, the GlobalTymeTM is equipped with 10MHz (options to add 100 kHz, 1 MHz, and 5 MHz), 1PPS and IRIG B(am) outputs. Additional options for telecommunications signals of E1 (2048 kHz) or T1(1544 kHz) clock are also available.
Internal RF distribution can be fitted to provide up to 10(3203A) or 20(3204A)10MHz outputs .
For timing, synchronization and time keeping, the unit provides optional NTP, TP and Daytime Protocol, in addition to the standard 1PPS and IRIG B outputs. The 1PPS output is accurate within < 20 nano seconds (1 sigma) An optional 1PPS input offers system redundancy or simply alternatively master reference input to the GPS if desired. For monitoring and control the unit houses both RS232 serial and 100/10 BaseT Ethernet (RJ 45) with various protocols suited to different user needs including Telnet, SNMP(optional) and a browser driven web interface.

3204A-SAASM

The ptf 3204A SAASM solution adds a special interface to allow the unit to operate with the highly popular Rockwell Collins DAGR handheld SAASM receiver (available separately from Rockwell Collins to authorized users), allowing the unit to be used in critical field applications. Available 2U (3204A) chassis, the unit can be configured as a high performance frequency standard, a comprehensive time standard, or both. See the data sheet under the documents tab for more details

3203A-WiMax

The ptf 3203A WiMaxGPS Receiver provides extraordinary stability by using the caesium stability of the GPS satellite system. Available in both DC power and AC power versions, the 3203A-WiMax is a high performance frequency standard, and comprehensive time standard, designed to meet the demanding specifications of WiMax.
The instrument uses a high performance OCXO local oscillator to provide the necessary phase noise and stability performance. Standard configuration provides three 10MHz and three 1PPS outputs all conveniently mounted on the front of the unit for easy access.
For timing, synchronization and time keeping, the unit provides NTP, TP and Daytime Protocol, in addition to the standard 1PPS outputs. The 1PPS output is accurate within For monitoring and control the unit houses both RS232 serial and 100/10 BaseT Ethernet (RJ 45) with Telnet and SNMP protocols, and a browser driven web interface. See the data sheet under the documents tab for more details
