Thor F-GPS-TX-RX-RM GPS over Fiber TX & RX Rackmount / PS SC / APC F-GPS-TX-RX-RM
The Thor Fiber portable F-1GPS-TX/RX systems are available to
support the remote location of industrial GPS antennas. These kits
are assembled and tuned to the unique requirements of each
application. Thor GPS over fiber systems are an excellent solution for
distance limitation between maritime or government GPS antennas and
radio signal receiver equipment. Typically any sensor equipment or
tuning hardware such as universal time receivers or GPS navigation gear
must be installed and located within 100 ft of the antenna system.
Most modern industrial type systems require antennas with a clear view
of the horizon to function properly. In the case of large ocean going
vessels, underground military installations, or large buildings or
structures(metropolis); it can be a challenge to install GPS equipment
within 100 ft of a suitable antenna location. Thor solves this problem
by extending the distance to over 20km by converting the GPS signal from
the antenna's coax to fiber optic cable. F-GPS systems are available
in a variety of form factors, and can be custom tuned to individual
GPS reference timing signals are widely used to synchronize cellular base stations.
systems typically consist of an active rooftop antenna, a GPS receiver
and a length of coaxial cable to connect them. Common challenges arise
when the distance between the rooftop antenna and the cellular base
station equipment (usually in the basement) is greater than 300 ft.
Coaxial cable runs over 300 ft are not practical for most GPS receiver
systems, so a fiber optic link is required at such distances, and Thor
Fiber optic links are some of the most trusted, cost-effective links in
