      Vectron International announced the company has entered into an agreement with Furuno to provide Furuno’s Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) receivers and timing modules in North America.

      Furuno’s Opus timing receivers are capable of providing timing accuracy better than 15 ns Root-Mean-Square (RMS) compared to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and only need to track one satellite in position hold mode to provide accurate timing. Built-in Time-Receiver Autonomous Integrity Monitoring (TRAIM), anti-jamming, and multipath mitigation ensure signal reception in challenging environments.

      “By adding Furuno receivers and modules directly to our portfolio, Vectron now has the ability to offer our customers either the fully integrated Vectron GNSS disciplined oscillator module, or the critical building blocks for a GNSS disciplined timing system, which consist of a Vectron Oven Controlled Crystal Oscillator (OCXO) and the Furuno GNSS receiver,” said Dave Bail, general manager of Vectron’s precision oscillator products group.
