Last Modified January 10, 2001

The model 2950AR Rubidium Frequency Standard provides three simultaneous outputs of 10MHz, 1MHz, and 100kHz. The 2950AR contains an Atomic Resonance Rubidium Oscillator and is ideal for use as a master oscillator in laboratories and ground stations as well as for test and calibration.

The 2950AR Rubidium Frequency Standard offering has three versions. Dubbed the 2950AR/01, /02 and /03, these new versions provide additional output frequency capabilities. The 2950AR/01 provides three 10MHz outputs. The 2950AR/02 provides 10MHz, 5MHz and 100kHz, while the 2950AR/03 provides customer specified combinations of 10MHz, 5MHz, 1MHz and 100kHz (up to three simultaneous outputs). The same accuracies and specifications are maintained.
