May 18, 2011 // By Phil Ling
MSC now offers the High Temperature Real Time Clock (HT RTC) product portfolio from Vectron. The oscillators were specifically designed for use in extreme environment applications, with a continuous operating temperature range from -55°C to 250°C.

A stability of ±100 ppm over the entire operating temperature range, a high shock resistance of up to 3.000 g and a high vibration resistance of 80 grms make the HT RTC oscillators suitable for use in a wide range of applications in the geophysical services, high temperature industrial process control, avionics and engine control sectors.

The HT RTC oscillators from Vectron are available in three industrial standard package footprints 5x7mm SMD, 8x8.5mm leaded and ½ DIL, for satisfying both through-hole mount and surface mount requirements. The oscillators are free of lead and compliant to EC RoHS directive.
