General information

The satellite receiver clock GPS162 is designed to provide extremly precise time frequency references. The compact size of the board GPS162 allows easy integration of GPS-controlled timing into synchronization tasks like:

  • Synchronization of Telecom networks
  • Calibration and synchronization of laboratory equipment
  • Synchronization of radio transmitters / base stations
  • (GSM / CDMA / UMTS / DAB / DVB / TETRA)

The clock has been developed for applications where conventional radio controlled clocks canĀ“t meet the growing requirements in precision. High precision available hours a day around the whole world is the main feature of the this system which receives its information from the satellites of the Global Positioning System.

The satellite receiver clock GPS162 is as a compact board with dimensions of 80 x 120 mm. The module contains four mounting holes (diameter 3 mm) for easy integration into the application of the user. The power supply and input/output signals are available via a 26-pole contact strip. The receiver is connected to the antenna/converter unit via a BNC-connector by using a 50 Ohm - coaxial cable with a length of up to 300 m. It is possible to connect up to four receivers to one antenna by using an optional antenna diplexer.

The module GPS162 generates GPS disciplined standard frequencies and pulses per second and is the ideal solution for synchronization tasks therefore. To realize various requirements concerning the accurracy of the frequency outputs, the module GPS162 may be equipped with different master oscillators (see table oscillator list, except Rubidium).

The board provides two RS232 interfaces and status outputs. The compact size of the board GPS162 allows easy integration into the users application.
