ETL Systems to show GPS over fibre system

May 30, 2017 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
ETL Systems will be exhibiting its wide range of RF components at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Hawaii, June 4-9.

At IMS, ETL will display its expanded portfolio of RF and microwave products, which now includes GPS over Fibre and other Global Positioning System (GPS) / Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) products such as GPS lightning arrestors, GPS line amplifiers, GPS splitters and GPS attenuators. Typical fields of application for these products include Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT).

RF components from ETL Systems were recently utilized in the building of Timeline Television’s first UHD production truck for use with major UK broadcasters. ETL components were also selected by ND SatCom to upgrade a VSAT system for an air traffic control provider in Africa.

“ETL's GPS/GNSS over Fibre can transport a GPS signal from an antenna to a GPS receiver up to 10km away and the outdoor transmit unit features an IP65 rated weatherproof housing with flexible mounting options,” said Dominic Overton, Components Sales Executive, at ETL Systems. “With the news that Fiber-Span has gone out of business, we want to let their customers know we can support them.”

The company’s GPS over Fibre is provided with short circuit protected 12-V 500-mA antenna power, with LED indicators for module and antenna power and status. Single or dual redundant external power supplies are available as an option, and the indoor receive modules feature antenna fail alarm pass through and can be provided as standalone units or housed in a 19-inch rack mount chassis, which can hold up to four modules.
