The Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology has confirmed the accuracy of the ISS time synchronization device

The Russian State Registry of Measuring Instruments includes a line for time-synchronization devices with an absolute error of 200 nanoseconds relative to UTC. The devices developed by Prosoft-Systems were tested at the National Research Institute for Physical-Technical and Radio-Engineering Measurements and were recognized by the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology. They can be operated in a range of temperatures from -40 to +60 С0   and can be used in any industrial automation system that requires extremely precise time synchronization.

ISS devices are the starting point in the process of creating an information system. They are designed to create a time scale that is synchronized with the signals from GLONASS/GPS global navigation satellite systems with the national coordinated time scale of the Russian Federation UTС (SU) and the UTC scale of coordinated universal time. At the most fundamental level, what this line of equipment does is to produce its own time scale, which is created with the help of an internal reference frequency generator and is synchronized by satellite signals.

The primary functions of the devices:

  • Receiving and processing signals from GLONASS and GPS systems, as well as generating precise time signals based on the data received
  • Generating emergency alarm signals

With the ability to use software to configure modes and to protect against unauthorized access to the control gear, the ISS is designed for continuous operation in WAMS systems, at digital substations, and as part of process automation systems.

•	The Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology has confirmed the accuracy of the ISS time synchronization device.

The devices are registered under number 71235-18 at the State Registry of Measuring Instruments and have an RU.C.33.002.A No. 69940 Measuring Instrument Certificate of Approval dated May 21, 2018. The certificate is valid until May 21, 2023.
