Oven Controlled (OCXO)

Wenzel Associates’ line of precision crystal oscillators are frequently used in the communications, military and test equipment markets. Precision oscillators are used by the aerospace industry for guidance, tracking and telemetry systems, by the communications industry for satellite, cellular, PCN, base station and VSAT systems, by the navigation industry for MLS, radar, GPS and other guidance systems. Crystal oscillators are used widely in the commercial markets as well as instruments such as frequency counters, frequency standards, synthesizers, phase noise test sets and various other instruments.
