6155E Handheld Time Code Generator


6155E Handheld GPS Synchronised IRIG B Time Code Generator

The Model 6155E is a battery powered, hand-held unit which provides an IRIG B timecode output synchronizsed with UTC time, derived from GPS, and a serial data output which includes UTC Time, Latitude and Longitude. It includes a twelve channel GPS receiver which automatically acquires all in-view satellites upon power up and locks an internal IRIG B time code generator to the GPS time reference. If the GPS lock is lost the 6155E will automatically switch to an internal clock and continue generating the output IRIG B signal. No discernible change in the IRIG B output will occur due to this transition.

The UTC Time, Latitude and Longitude serial output is provided as an asynchronous 19.2K baud RS-232C signal. In the absence of GPS lock the serial data will continue with the time derived from the internal clock. The latitude and longitude, however, will be forced to zeros and the signs will be forced to positive.

The 6155E is housed in an aluminum enclosure, 8 inches long, 3.8 inches wide and 2.55 inches high, which includes rechargeable batteries and an attached, active antenna. An LCD display shows the IRIG time and also provides lock and battery status. All controls and indicators are on the front and all connectors are on the top (end surface). The batteries are accessible via a removable panel on the bottom.
