RD/GPS: Redundant GPS-synchronized Time and Frequency Reference in 1U Housing

Redundant GPS-synchronized Time and Frequency Reference in 1U Housing

The Meinberg RD/GPS is a fully redundant GPS-synchronized time and frequency reference for demanding applications like Digital Broadcasting and Telecommunication Networks. The 1U rackmount chassis integrates two Meinberg GPS Receivers (each with its own oscillator), dual power supplies and an automatic switchover logic and provides frequency and pulse outputs.



Product Description

The integrated network management processor supports remote control and monitoring. Two serial ports offer local control and monitoring capabilities and can be used for generating serial time strings in various formats to feed TOD information into a wide range of devices.

The Meinberg RSC switchover logic ensures that the time and frequency synchronization signal generation from the two GPS receivers is automatically switched to the output connectors based on the synchronization state of the receivers. A manual override is possible both locally by using the front panel controls and remotely using the integrated network control and monitoring processor.
