INSTOCK Wireless New Product Release: GPS610

INSTOCK Wireless announces the release of their newest GPS Signal Splitter, Model GPS610. Featuring SMA female connectors and spanning 1-2 GHz.

Online PR News – 15-October-2016 – Boonton, NJ – INSTOCK Wireless Components, Inc is pleased to announce the latest addition to our product line, model GPS610. This passive coaxial splitter offers unparalleled performance in GPS / GLONASS (GNSS) / Galileo, BeiDou (BDSS), and IRNSS antenna / signal splitting applications.

Model GPS610 is a six way, passive, GPS signal splitter ideal for splitting a GPS antenna signal between six (6) receivers while providing a DC current path to power a remotely located active GPS antenna from one receiver while blocking the DC path from the other. Furnished with SMA female connectors all ports. A special feature of this unit is the 200 ohm internal load which provides a current drain for the GPS receiver not powering the active antenna. Some GPS receivers incorrectly sense an antenna fault when there is no current draw. The 200 ohm internal load provides a simulated antenna current drain which prevents receiver faulting. Max voltage rating at the DC blocked port is 10 VDC; maximum current rating is 50 mA.

The heart of the unit is a precision designed and etched Wilkinson type microstrip circuit on a low loss, high frequency, dielectric substrate. The Wilkinson microstrip circuit passes DC current to all ports making it ideal for use in active systems. Power splitter dividers passing DC to select ports and blocking DC to others are also available. Electrical performance is highlighted by 1.1 dB max insertion loss (above the -7.78 dB power split), 22 dB min isolation, 1.35:1 max input VSWR and 1.20:1 max output VSWR. Equal power split and balance is displayed by 0.4 dB max amplitude balance and 6 degrees max phase balance. Narrow band GPS performance in your band of interest may be even better. See 6 way GPS splitter test sweeps for specific details. DC block and 200 ohm internal load are specially designed to be RF transparent with negligable effect on performance.

Model GPS610's mechanical features include precision CNC, brass, 50 ohm SMA type female coaxial connectors with tri alloy plating to insure tarnish resistance and low PIM operation. Connector pins are gold plated phosphor bronze for reliability and low contact resistance. Virgin electrical grade PTFE support insulators captivate the contact pins enabling trouble free coaxial connector mating. Long term operation and superior shielding is assured by the rugged CNC machined aluminum housing with clear chemical film finish. Secure mounting is provided by two 0.125" dia (3.18 mm) through holes. RoHS compliant construction includes no-lead solder and a finish free of hexavalent chromium.
