The CMGPS 588 synchronization unit is an antenna-integrated GPS controlled time reference. It is optimized for outdoor usage and works as a PTP grandmaster clock according to IEEE 1588-2008 / IEEE C37.238-2011.
The CMGPS 588 can be used for operating CMC test sets with a NET-1B/C interface and the Test Universe 3.0. It supports the following applications:
- Synchronizing the starting point of a test procedure including two or more OMICRON CMC test sets
- Synchronizing the recording with real-time stamping of measurement samples
CMGPS 588 is automatically ready for operation shortly after providing power supply via Power over Ethernet (PoE). The distance between the CMGPS 588 and the CMC test set can be extended up to 95 m / 312 ft by using extension cables.
