GPS Synchronizers - MicroSync

Sincronizzatori Gps - Microsync - Professional Timing | Microgate


MICROSYNC is the new Microgate GPS synchronizer. It is the state-of-the-art in synchronization systems based on the reception of UTC from the GPS satellite system. MICROSYNC has been created with the dual characteristic of being both a GPS synchronizer and a system with a built-in time base. This feature together with perfect integration with the REI2 stopwatch make it a system that is unique of its kind.

    MICROSYNC performs three main functions without requiring any configuration:

    1. Normal: Once it has been switched on and the signal has been acquired from GPS satellites, every minute MICROSYNC gives a closing signal on the sockets. The synchronization signal is compatible with all the timing devices on the market.
    2. Synchronizes with REI2: simultaneously with synchronization, on the MICROSYNC serial there will be sent a string with the time and date to which the stopwatch will be synchronized and a following closing contact. No configuration or setting needs to be made, either on MICROSYNC or on REI2.
    3. Synchronizes the GPS time base with REI:: If enabled, this function allows the stopwatch time base to remain constantly connected up with the MICROSYNC GPS signal, creating a stopwatch aligned with UTC time with an accuracy of +-1 microsec without integral error.

    MICROSYNC also makes it possible:
    • to set the synchronization period at 10s, 30s, 1min and 10 min;
    • to synchronize manually by setting the time and using the internal
    time base;
    • to activate a NMEA output on serial;
    • to activate DCF77 mode (compatible with old Digitech synchronizers).

    The main features of MICROSYNC are:
    • base times from GPS module using self-synchronization every second
    (PPS) with the ZDA protocol;
    • internal time base with a temperature compensated oscillator
    at ±1 ppm between -20 e +70°C;
    • NO output on 4mm banana plug (earth and signal);
    • serial output with NO signal on Amphenol socket for connection
    to REI2;
    • NMEA serial output available on Amphenol socket.
