GPSANT : GPS Antenna/Converter Unit

The GPS antenna combines a planar antenna and a frequency converter, which translates the high-frequency phase-modulated spread spectrum signal of the GPS system to an intermediate frequency. This way a standard coaxial cable (e.g. RG58) can be used for the connection with the GPS clock and up to 300 meters (with RG58) or even 700 meters (with a low-loss cable type like RG213) between receiver and antenna is possible without additional amplifier.

GPSCON : GPS Converter

The Meinberg GPS converter allows the connection of a GPS L1 antenna (1575.42MHz) of other vendors to a Meinberg GPS receiver which uses an intermediate frequency.

The module doesn’t provide any DC voltage for powering active antennas, the DC voltage must be applied externally via the 2-pin screw terminal.
