Key Features

The GPS1000 is a single box GPS time receiver system, designed to provide high accuracy timing to an MC1000 time server. The receiver is suitable for external and internal installation (when mounted close to a window) due to the high sensitivity of the GPS reception circuit. The antenna system is supplied with wall mount fixings.

GPS as a time reference

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a radio based, all weather satellite navigation system used in many applications to provide accurate positional information. GPS also provides a very accurate calculation of time. In suitably designed receiver systems, the time source can be harnessed to provide internal timing signal offsets in the tens of nanoseconds range. Taking into account signal processing and driver propagation delays, timing data is available on the output pins of the GPS1000 accurate to within 100 nsec of UTC.

High sensitivity

The GPS1000 GPS Time Receiver incorporates an advanced high sensitivity GPS engine with class leading interference rejection and low noise operation. This enables the GPS1000 to acquire a full time and date lock extremely quickly under normal signal strength conditions, and also facilitates full time and date lock in urban canyon areas where GPS signals may not have previously been reliably available.

Auto setup

The fully self setting GPS1000 requires connection to a powered MC series master clock for operation. The GPS1000 automatically searches for GPS lock and communicates with the MC series master clock. The status of the GPS1000 is indicated by the four status LED's, or alternatively, may be confirmed using the master clock status screen.

GPS1000 Model availability:

The receiver system is supplied with a two pair screened cable for connection to the MC Series master clock. The table below lists the available models and standard cable lengths. If required, this connection may be extended up to a maximum of 150m as detailed in the user manual.
