TECHNICAL PRODUCT DATA SHEET RMS216 2x16 Rackmount GNSS Splitter DESCRIPTION The RMS216 amplifies and splits the GPS/GNSS signal. It includes dual input ports and 16 output ports. The dual input ports connect two GPS receive antennas. The output ports grant up to 16 GPS/GNSS receivers signal access at one time. Typically the RMS216 is configured with an 110VAC input (-48V telecom power input also available) and a regulated DC output voltage that is passed to the antenna input ports in order to power an active GPS antenna on that port. In this scenario, the RF outputs (OUT1 – OUT16) would feature a 200 Ohm DC load to simulate an antenna DC current draw for any receiver connected to those ports. Redundancy is acquired through the use of a primary antenna and a backup antenna. The ability of the RMS216 to switch antennas allows all connected GPS devices to remain fully functional in the event of an antenna failure. Faults are indicated on the front panel LED and status via a DB9 interface. Within the RMS216 is an antenna health sensor and an embedded antenna switch. The sensor monitors the health of the primary antenna connected to the splitter. Based on the information provided by the sensor, the splitter will switch to the secondary antenna in the event of a failure with the primary antenna. If the failure in the primary antenna is resolved, the splitter will automatically switch back to the primary. The embedded switch has been designed so it can be controlled externally via an external rocker switch that can override the internal automatic switch mechanism. As with all splitters available from GPS Source, custom gain for output and custom connectors can be configured for the device.

Automatic Control (Default Option) — The automatic control will automatically select the primary or alternate antenna based on the fault status of the two antennas. The fault status is determined by the current draw of the antennas. A current draw below 12.5mA and above 120mA will signal a fault for the respective input port. The fault condition will cause the device to automatically switch to the other input port. The fault status is displayed on the front panel.The antenna status is indicated via the DB9. 1.2.1 Antenna Status The antenna status is available to an external application via a set of signals in the DB9 connector. The signals enable the external application to identify the antenna selected. The status is output via a SPDT relay. The relay is energized when the primary antenna is selected. The relay will be deenergized when the secondary antenna is selected or when power is off. An available factory option, reverses the energized position. The relay can switch up to 100mA at up to 60VDC or 60VAC. The normally open contact, the normally closed contact, and the common are brought out in the rear panel DB9 connector. DB9(F) Pinout 1.2.2 Antenna Control The secondary antenna is manually selected by activating an illuminted rocker switch on the front panel.
