The standard configuration of the IRMS216 GPS integrated rack mount splitter has dual +/48V telecom power and a regulated DC output voltage, with a couple power options available. The output voltage passes through both antenna input ports and powers the active GPS antennas connected to that port. The DC blocked outputs feature a 200 Ohm DC resistive load to ground simulating an antenna DC current draw for any receiver connected to those ports.
Redundancy is built into the unit with dual antenna inputs. The IRMS216 has the ability to automatically switch antennas, allowing all connected devices to remain fully functional in the event of an antenna failure. An external rotary switch on the front panel allows the user to manually select the desired antenna inputs.
A GNSS receiver within the IRMS216 monitors the antenna signal strength. There is also internal monitoring of both antennas’ current draw. The IRMS216 will automatically choose the healthiest antenna. The device has been designed so that antenna selection can optionally be controlled externally via a rotary switch overriding the internal automatic switch mechanism.
The dual power supply option allows two internal power supply units to share the load. If one unit is not available, the other will seamlessly take over without any loss of power. Power supply LED fault indicator is clearly visible on the front panel, and can also transmitted using the contacts made available on the back panel.
