Sonifex AVN-GMCCS - PTP Grandmaster Clock, GPS, IP, CSAC, Rackmount
£5,749.95 ex. vat
The Sonifex AVN-GMCCS is a clock for use with AoIP applications and a Quantum Atomic Clock accurate to 0.0005 parts per million. In normal operation, the unit has PTPv2 time stamping resolution to 8nsec. It uses a combination of a GPS receiver, a PLL (phase lock loop) and a specialist on-board clock device to create the precise, low jitter clock signals required to drive the physical transceiver’s time stamping circuitry, also providing holdover if the GPS signal is lost.
Although designed as a grandmaster clock, a separate clock input can act as an alternative reference source to GPS which the unit can ‘slave’ to. Clock outputs, driven from the physical transceiver, can be used to provide media clocks for external equipment local to the AVN-GMC when it is in both ‘master’ and ‘slave’ states. The clock outputs are available as a single AES-3id output and two outputs which can be selected as either word clock or variable PPS. The wordclock can operate at 32, 44.1, 48, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz. When set as a variable PPS output, the unit can act as a clock master to distribute a reference frequency to test and measurement equipment.
