WHARTON CLOCKS - Time Code Receivers - Satellite


These time code receivers may be used to automatically synchronise compatible Wharton network time servers, certain clocks and time zone clocks to GPS satellite time transmissions, depending on model.

488HS4-GPS - Global Positioning System Receiver

This provides a means to synchronise the 5000 Series network time servers, 4000E and 4000NE series clocks and calendar clocks and 4700N and 4700NIL series time zone clocks to GPS.

GPS is a system of more than 30 satellites, which transmit highly accurate, real-time, worldwide, navigation information at 1575.42 MHz that a GPS receiver can use to identify its position, together with a precise Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The GPS system was developed by the US government initially for military use and is now available for unlimited commercial access. It is useful for broadcast locations, out of range of MSF or DCF77 radio code transmissions, where international time accuracy is required.

The receiver is housed in a weatherproof, IP65-rated case containing both the active antenna module and the receiver/decoder interface. Timing accuracy of 4000 series clocks is +/-5ms of UTC when the clock is synchronised via 488.HS4-GPS (E and NE clock versions only). If an external mounting point is required, the receiver may be located up to 200 metres from the clock.

Included accessories: The receiver is supplied with 25 metres of four-core 7/0.2 (0.22mm sq.) screened cable. (It can be supplied with 100m cable reel as an extra cost option, please contact Sales).
