Time & Frequency

Many industries and applications require precise time and frequency synchronization. We provide a full range of products to support your exact needs.

Time and frequency signals traceable to national and international standards are available in various form factors for easy integration.

The Spectracom SecureSync offers best in class, secure, network time and synchronisation. Its modular approach offers any combination of power, oscillator, and reference including the latest GNSS constellations, this enables precise application fit as well as the opportunity for future expansion. The SecureSyncs option card expansion covers all the main Timing signals such as NTP, PTP, IRIG, 1PPS, 10Mhz, Havequick, Serial and more and can be seen as both a Masterclock and signal distribution in one compact 1U rack format. It is built to MIL-810F standards to ensure long term reliability.

There is also a complete range of bus-level solutions, timing modules ready for integration into your device, distribution amplifiers some with built-in failover switches, and synchronized displays and NTP software.

If you need something different please contact us to discuss your specific needs.
