RMS216
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.

Antenna Control Specifications
Antenna control can be automatic with manual override.
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.
