GPS TIME SYNCHRONIZATION SYSTEM OVERVIEW - 14000 SERIES TRANSMITTER
Architecture
The Primex Wireless GPS Time Synchronization System consists of a single 14000 Series Transmitter, GPS Receiver,14000 Satellite Transmitter
(optional), and the system clocks, bells and other devices in a single building, to a campus wide deployment.
Time Synchronization
Once the 14000 Series Transmitter has received its time from a GPS Receiver it sets its internal clock. It then transmits time information or
schedules via a wireless radio signal to the wireless clocks, bells, and other devices in the system. As a result, the system clocks, bells, and
other devices are precisely synchronized to each other and all time, schedules, and events are kept current.
l
l
Time Source: The transmitter time is synchronized from a GPS Receiver and then broadcasts that time and event schedules to
the system clocks and other devices.
Transmit Schedule - Internal Antenna Model Only: The transmitter broadcasts its synchronized time continuously to the system
clocks and devices.
System Components
l
l
l
l
Transmitter: The transmitter operates on channels with 20kHz bandwidths and 72MHz frequency and is preset to one of the
channels licensed by the FCC/IC to minimize interference on these frequencies and channels.
GPS Receiver: The Global Positioning System (GPS) Receiver has a sensitive antenna that receives the Coordinated Universal
Time (UTC) from the GPS satellite transmission. The GPS Receiver then sends the time to the transmitter. The GPS Receiver is
required to have an unobstructed "view of the sky" to receive the signal.
GPS/Transmitter Extension Cable (optional): A specially designed low-resistance data cable can be used to extend the distance
between the GPS Receiver and the transmitter. The GPS Receiver continuously sends the precise time through the cable to the
transmitter.
Satellite Transmitter (optional): An optional unit used to supplement and extend signal coverage.

INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION
Installation and Configuration Overview
l
l
l
Review the Installation Guidelines and identify the installation location of the transmitter and system components. For
additional information, see "Transmitter Installation Location Guidelines" located on page 2.
Inspect system components to verify packaging includes all supplied parts for each system component and verify no
damage has occurred during shipping.
Do not install or attempt to set the system wireless clocks or devices until the transmitter and its components are installed
and configured, the transmitter is powered, ts time source is configured, and the transmitter is fully operational.
Summary of Installation
Listed below is a summary of the order in which the transmitter, external antenna, and its components are to be installed and
configured.
1. Route the GPS cable.
2. Install the GPS receiver.
3. Connect the transmitter time source.
4. Establish the transmitter settings and verify connections.
5. Verify the system is operational.
Transmitter Installation Location Guidelines
When planning the system installation, Primex Wireless recommends taking into consideration the below transmitter installation
guidelines. Location is extremely important to ensure the best operation of your system.

All Transmitter Models
l
l
In multi-story buildings, installation the transmitter on the top floor will often significantly improve coverage to the lower
floors due to the “umbrella” pattern of transmission.
Transmitter should be located a minimum of two to three feet above the floor.
Internal Antenna Models
l
l
Locate transmitter within 5 feet (1.5 m) from a 120 VAC electrical outlet.
As a guideline keep transmitting antenna away from large metal objects, such as lockers or filing cabinets. If this is not
possible, locate transmitter a minimum of 3.5' (1.07 m) away from metal objects.
Tools and Equipment Required - External Antenna Transmitter
To install the system and its components, you will need the following tools and equipment.
l
Hammer drill
l
Power drill
l
3/4” concrete drill bit, 18” (45.72 cm) long
l
Penetrating mount only: 5/8" concrete drill bit, 18” (45.7 cm) long
l
1/2” wrench
l
3/4' deep well socket with ratchet
l
10” (25.4 cm) adjustable wrench
l
Phillips screwdriver
l
Flat head screwdriver
l
Lineman’s pliers
l
Shears/scissors
l
Silicone caulk; required to seal cabling/ground penetration
l
Transmitter rack (recommended)

Route GPS Cable
Complete the below steps to route and connect the GPS cable to the transmitter.
1. From the outside of the building, route the GPS cable through a 5/8" drilled hole into the building.
Install GPS Receiver
Complete the steps below to install a GPS receiver. A GPS receiver is required if your system will use GPS as its time source.

Mounting the GPS Receiver
1. Verify the kit contents and the installation location meets the installation guidelines.
2. From the outside of the building, route the GPS cable.
l
Internal antenna transmitter: route through a 5/8" drilled hole into the building.
l
External antenna transmitter: route through a drilled hole into the building.
3. Assemble and mount the GPS receiver unit to an inside of a window (not Low-E glass), an outside pole, or rooftop. The
mounting location is required to have a clear view of the sky.
CAUTION:Be sure to follow local building code requirements when attaching the GPS unit to the inside of a window. Clean
the windowpane before using the suction cups for attachment.

Connect Transmitter Antenna
1. Carefully screw the transmitter antenna onto the transmitter. Turn the antenna clockwise, being careful to avoid crossthreading the antenna. The antenna must be snug and flat against the case.
Ground the Antenna Mast
Complete the steps below to ground the antenna mast. The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires that every antenna installation be
grounded. Also, many areas have local antenna-grounding codes. Be sure that you are familiar with the grounding and other
antenna regulations in your area.
1. Secure the ground clamp (supplied) around the antenna mast.
2. Insert and tighten the #6 gauge wire (supplied) in the ground clamp. The final assembly should resemble Figure 3.
NOTE: Cut the 50’ wire off at the necessary length. The remainder of the wire will be used to ground the transmitter.
3. Connect the other end of the #6 gauge wire to a verified building/earth ground.
