Installing the syncboxRED
The syncboxRED gps serial time receiver should be installed securely in place (in a suitable location) and connected to the synchronisation slave system (e.g. a PC) using the supplied cable. The unit should be powered using the supplied power adapter. The unit should be secured in position using the four 4.5mm case fixing points using fixings (not supplied) that are suitable for the application. Alternatively, the syncboxRED may be fixed in position using the additional post mounting kit (not supplied).
Recommended installation locations:
To achieve the most reliable operation:
- The syncboxRED should be installed on the roof of a building, laying flat with a clear unobstructed view of the sky.
Where installation on a roof is not practical, one of the following alternative locations should be used:
- The syncboxRED can be mounted flat to the side of a building facing the equator, and facing the horizon with a partial view of the sky.
- The syncboxRED can be mounted internally looking out of an unobstructed window. The window should be on the side of the building facing the equator. Ensure that the window is not coated with metallised film, as this may disrupt GPS signals.
