Model 8600 : Transmille Advanced GPS Frequency Standard

The new 8600 has been designed to calibrate a wide range of handheld and bench frequency counters or phase meters with a fully variable output.

The 8600 Frequency Source / Measure GPS Standard has been designed to calibrate all functions of modern handheld and bench frequency counters and signal sources.

A high accuracy precision GPS reference frequency of up to 1 GHz is available, with outputs for A-B phase and variable levels for confirming trigger levels of modern counter-timer units In addition, unlike other GPS references, the 8600 also adds the ability to measure frequencies of up to 1 GHz with high precision, removing the requirement for an additional instrument in your laboratory.

Utilising the latest in GPS reference technology, the 8600 combines both frequency source and measurment into a single integrated solution. Dual VFD displays provide the user with a dedicated source/measure readout, with direct access to detailed settings and satellite Lock/signal information.
