The module GPSGEN1575/MP has been designed to reconvert the intermediate frequency of 35.42MHz transmitted on the antenna cable of Meinberg GPS clocks to the GPS frequency of 1575.42MHz. This technology allows the connection of GPS receivers of other manufacturers working without IF-technique to a Meinberg antenna with up to 300m of coaxial cable RG58 (or even up to 700m with RG213) without the need of an additional amplifier. Besides the signal conditioning, the module includes a complete GPS receiver, which can be used as a reference in test applications.
Years of warranty: 3 RoHS compliant

Antenna Switch Unit for all Meinberg's GPS, GPS/GLONASS L1 and LF Antennas.
The switching unit AMX21/HS is designed for mounting on a DIN rail. The front panel integrates two switches, three LED indicators and three SMA connectors. The integrated power supply is available as an AC (AMX21DAHS) and a DC variant (AMX21DHS).
The antenna/converter units are connected to the switching unit by a 50 Ohm coaxial cable. The output of the switching unit - the chosen antenna signal - is connected to the receiver in the same way. It is possible to connect up to four receivers to one antenna by using an optional antenna diplexer.
The GPS antenna combines a planar antenna and a frequency converter, which translates the high-frequency phase-modulated spread spectrum signal of the GPS system to an intermediate frequency. This way a standard coaxial cable (e.g. RG58) can be used for the connection with the GPS clock and a distance of up to 300 meters (with RG58) or even 700 meters (with a low-loss cable type like RG213) between receiver and antenna is possible without additional amplifier.
