TRAK Microwave, a brand of London, England– and Stuart, Florida–based Smiths Interconnect, has released its 8835 GPS Clock, a GPS time and frequency instrument. The 8835 GPS Clock is designed to deliver optimal power and interoperability options while maintaining GPS accuracy and reliability.

According to the company, while tracking GPS signals, this clock exhibits a frequency accuracy of better than 1x10-12 and a 1 PPS accuracy of better than 50 nanoseconds, RMS. The proprietary oscillator steering discipline algorithm can enhance the RMS accuracy of either the double oven crystal oscillator, or optional enhanced rubidium oscillator for greater depths of accuracy.

 In order to increase interoperability, the 8835’s 10/100 base-T Ethernet interface can leverage a range of network protocols including network time protocol (NTP), simple network management protocol (SNMP), Telnet, secure shell (SSH), and FTP for status and control. The unit can also accept a variety of power sources including 24 VDC, 48 VDC, or 100–240 VAC with an external AC/DC converter.

Targeting defense, satcom, and wireless applications, this highly compact and configurable device operates from -30oC to +60oC with a terminal node controller (TNC) GPS receiver port.
