features & benefits

  • Automotive dead reckoning
    • Position information even in locations with no GPS reception (e.g. in tunnels or buildings)
    • External pulse generator required (e.g. vehicle speed sensor)
  • High sensitivity
    • Usable in buildings
    • High accuracy
  • Time synchronisation/PPS output
    • Precise synchronization of an R&S®TSMx drive test scanner
  • Supported instruments

    R&S®TSMX-PPS2 with time synchronisation/PPS pulses can be used in combination with one of the following instruments:

    • R&S®TSMQ
    • R&S®TSML-C/-G/-W
    • R&S®TSML-CW/-GW
    • R&S®TSMU with R&S®TSMU-K11/-K12/-K13
  • System configuration
    • Independent (configuration 1): R&S®TSMX-PPS2 and supplied USB cable for connecting to a PC for positioning
    • R&S®TSMX-PPS2 and R&S®TSMx (configuration 2): Connection same as in configuration 1 except with additional time synchronisation/PPS pulse
    • Automotive dead reckoning (configuration 1 and 2): Supplied open-ended cable for connecting the R&S®TSMX-PPS2 to the output of vehicle speed or direction sensors (optional)

    Configuration 2 and the R&S®ROMES4LOC option from R&S®ROMES4 can be used to accurately locate all relevant types of base stations (GSM, WCDMA, LTE, CDMA2000®, EVDO, WiMAX, TETRA).
