E10-Y8

The Quartzlock E10-Y8 is a compact simple to install low noise multi-output atomic frequency reference for use as a general purpose 10MHz rubidium frequency standard.

The E10-Y8 is a very low noise rubidium frequency reference with Phase Noise of -110dBc/Hz @ 1Hz and 2x10-12 @ 1s stability that will enable up to eight separate instruments to be referenced.

This frequency standard benefits from having Quartzlock’s SMAC (Sub Miniature Atomic Clock), and very low noise distribution amplifier technology built in, housed in a compact enclosure measuring just 103 x 55 x 122mm with a mass of <500g.

The E10-Y8 benefits from low Drift of <5x10-12/day, typically 1x10-12/day.

The E10-Y8 has a 2 year warranty

These exceptional specifications enable mission critical, interception, monitoring and surveillance of LF to Microwave signals at lowest cost and highest available performance.

Panoramic and communication receivers, spectrum analysers, network analysers, digital storage oscilloscopes, and vector network analysers will all benefit from significantly lower noise performance.

Secure communications, defence and R&D will all benefit from lower noise referencing and with up to 8 instruments locked to an identical frequency
