Question

What accuracy can I expect from SecureSync IRIG Outputs?

Answer

IRIG outputs from SecureSync in a digital form or DCLS (TTL, RS-485, optical fiber) all provide accuracy of 30 nanoseconds or less to the system timebase.

IRIG outputs in an analog form or AM (amplitude modulated) will provide accuracy that will vary based on the format due to the carrier frequency generation and modulation according to the table below.
 
Format
Accuracy
IRIG A
200 nanoseconds
IRIG B
800 nanoseconds
IRIG G
200 nanoseconds
IRIG E
1.5 microseconds
NASA-36
800 nanoseconds
