Vectron's Smallest High Temperature VCXO

Vectron's Smallest High Temperature VCXO

Extended Temperature Range of -55C to 180C in a 5mm x 7mm Footprint. 
The VX-708 High Temperature Voltage Control Crystal Oscillator has a 4-point mount design for high shock and vibration environments. This VCXO performs over an extended operating temperature range of -55C to +180C with a frequency range of 2MHz to 40MHz while providing an absolute pull range of +/-50ppm making it ideal for harsh environmental applications.

Features

• Frequency range: 2MHz to 40 MHz
• Temperature range: -55C to +180C
• Package: 5mm x 7mm x 1.95mm
• 4-point resonator mount for high shock and vibration performance
• Absolute pull range: +/-50ppm
• Supply: 3.3 V

Applications

• Oil/Gas downhole tool
• High temperature industrial process control
• Extended temperature Military/Aerospace

Vectron’s manufacturing processes, from quartz resonator fabrication to oscillator electronics assembly and test, are painstakingly controlled via ISO and SPC procedures. Vectron fabricates high temperature quartz resonators using proprietary manufacturing processes designed specifically for high temperature and harsh environment applications. In order to ensure high reliability in the field, critical electrode metallization and testing processes are conducted inside state-of-the-art Class 1K cleanrooms, while oscillator assembly is conducted in Class 10K cleanrooms. All high temperature oscillators are 100% tested before delivery.

  • Real-Time and Reliable Viscosity Measurements wherever you are

    You are a maintenance engineer and/or responsible for quality control and in your job you deal with oil, printing inks or any other kind of fluid. What matters to you is the monitoring of the condition of these fluids, especially its viscosity. You have several methods to measure the viscosity, but do these methods allow you to take action whenever it is needed? Or can they be set up in matter of minutes?

  • We can sense it

    If you need to measure temperature and/or viscosity of liquids, Sengenuity can offer you the solution. The technology of acoustic wave sensors is based on the piezo electical principle. The basic material for this is quartz.
