• Provides fast, easy calibration of time-to-amplitude converters
• Absolute accuracy ±10 ps for a 10-ns period
• Long-term stability, 100 ppm/year
• Calibrates time periods from 10 ns to 10 µs on 80 ns to 80 µs ranges
Fast, easy calibration of timing equipment such as time-to-amplitude converters is a routine operation with the ORTEC Model 462 Time Calibrator. The start and stop pulses from the Model 462 are separated by an integral multiple of a precise time period that can be selected by the operator. The accuracy of this time period is ±10 ps for a 10-ns period and is ±0.005% of the total period for longer periods. The long-term stability of this signal is better than 100 ppm.
