GuideTech sells its computer-based timing instruments since 1988 to NIST, NASA, CERN, US Naval Observatory, Northrop Grumman, Rolls Royce and other respected organizations worldwide. Our instruments are based on GuideTech’s 24 patents portfolio of “Continuous Time Interval Analyzer” (CTIA) technology. GuideTech’s Computer-based products and test systems are available in ISA, PCI & PXI as well as standalone systems. Lange electronic GmbH, Booth A7. In addition to timing and frequency sources, time distribution and time monitoring systems developed in-house, Lange-Electronic GmbH also provides satellite simulation systems and telemetry systems. Nowadays high precision timing is crucial for labelling data blocks to ensure correct correlation of data at all times. This is relevant for measurement data in research as well as data blocks in big computer networks transporting security or time dependent data, such as banks or insurances where the time tag of transactions may strongly influence the revenues. Overlaying video signals with time and date is also in this category. Our distribution systems for timing and frequency have been developed for applications requiring the same time simultaneously at different locations. Having been designed with redundancy they are synchronized via external frequency sources such as GPS. In addition we are offering alarm and control options for monitoring all inputs and outputs.
