GPS DIN Rail Module 6870

Short Description

Module 6870 is a GPS clock in a compact aluminium housing for 35mm DIN rail mounting (DIN EN 60715 TH35). The module is easily clipped onto the rail via a clip based on "snap-in" mechanism.

Module 6870 has two (2) individual and independent interfaces and is available in six (6) different interface versions. The interface COM0 is always implemented as RS232. The design of interface COM1 depends on the interface version of Module 6870.

The different interface versions of Module 6870 provide the below parameterizable signal outputs via the hmc (hopf Management Console):

Interface Version 1 (RS232/RS422)

  • Serial interface COM0: RS232
    • Output of serial string / connection to hmc (hopf Management Console)
  • Serial interface COM1: RS422
    • Output of serial string (independent of COM0)
  • 3x optical coupler pulse outputs (potential free)
    • Output of cyclic pulses, DCF77 pulse (1Hz) or status messages
  • 1x analogue output via BNC
    • Output of DCF77 antenna simulation (77.5kHz)

Interface Version 2 (RS232/RS232)

  • Serial interface COM0: RS232
    • Output of serial string / connection to hmc (hopf Management Console)
  • Serial interface COM1: RS232
    • Output of serial string (independent of COM0)
  • 3x optical coupler pulse outputs (potential free)
    • Output of cyclic pulses, DCF77 pulse (1Hz) or status messages
  • 1x analogue output via BNC
    • Output of DCF77 antenna simulation (77.5kHz)

Interface Version 3 (RS232/TTY passive)

  • Serial interface COM0: RS232
    • Output of serial string / connection to hmc (hopf Management Console)
  • Serial interface COM1: TTY passive
    • Output of serial string (independent of COM0)
  • 3x optical coupler pulse outputs (potential free)
    • Output of cyclic pulses, DCF77 pulse (1Hz) or status messages
  • 1x analogue output via BNC
    • Output of DCF77 antenna simulation (77.5kHz)

Interface Version 4 (RS232/Pulse Interface in TTL Level)

  • Serial interface COM0: RS232
    • Output of serial string / connection to hmc (hopf Management Console)
  • Serial interface COM1: TTL level (high and low active)
    • Output of PPS pulse or DCF77 pulse (1Hz) in TTL level
  • 3x optical coupler pulse outputs (potential free)
    • Output of cyclic pulses, DCF77 pulse (1Hz) or status messages
  • 1x analogue output via BNC
    • Output of DCF77 antenna simulation (77.5kHz)

Interface Version 5 (RS232/RS422/IRIG-B)

  • Serial interface COM0: RS232
    • Output of serial string / connection to hmc (hopf Management Console)
