Key Features

The GPS6000 Time Receiver accurately synchronises your time server with international atomic standards. Incorporating the latest in GNSS technology and optional multi-constellation support (GPS/GLONASS/Galileo ready), the GPS6000 ensures accurate and reliable time on your systems, even in hostile RF environments.

Accurate timing

The GPS6000 provides highly accurate time data. With 32 satellite parallel tracking and class-leading high performance design, the GNSS decoder supplies time data accurate to within 30 nsec of UTC. The user programmable cable delay compensation ensures timing accuracy is maintained, even over long cable runs.

Reliable performance

The system has been engineered to ensure reliable performance. The high sensitivity GPS6000 decoder allows for operation in the most demanding weak signal and hostile RF environments. The GPS6000 fully integrates with your time server, providing real time diagnostics and active antenna monitoring. Advanced anti-jam technology and optional multi-constellation support further increase system reliability.

Maximum flexibility

The GPS6000 offers maximum flexibility. Two versions are available. The GPS6000‑PRO includes a ruggedised high gain anti-jam antenna, a multi-strike fast response lightning arrester, military grade coaxial cabling and multi-constellation support (GPS/GLONASS/Galileo ready). The GPS6000‑LITE is a more economical GPS only solution with an active patch antenna.
