ETL Systems to Showcase GPS over Fibre System at IMS 2017

At the International Microwave Symposium (IMS 2017), ETL Systems will be exhibiting its wide range of RF Components. The event will take place in Honolulu, Hawaii from the 4-8 of June, 2017.

RF Components from ETL Systems were recently used in the building of broadcast technology for service provider, Timeline Television’s, first UHD production truck. ETL components were also selected by ND SatCom to upgrade a VSAT system for an air traffic control provider in Africa.

At its stand (#605) at IMS, ETL will display its expanded portfolio of RF and microwave solutions, which now includes GPS over Fibre and other Global Positioning System (GPS) / Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) products such as GPS lightning arrestors, GPS line amplifiers, GPS splitters and GPS attenuators. Typical fields of application for these products include Position, Navigation & Timing (PNT).

ETL's GPS/GNSS over Fibre can transport a GPS signal from an antenna to a GPS receiver up to 10 km away and the outdoor transmit unit features an IP65 rated weatherproof housing with flexible mounting options.

The GPS over Fibre is provided with short circuit protected 12 V 500 mA antenna power, with LED indicators for module and antenna power and status. Single or dual redundant external power supplies are available as an option, and the indoor receive modules feature antenna fail alarm pass through and can be provided as standalone units or housed in a 19" rack mount chassis, which can hold up to four modules.

ETL will also showcase their new RF and microwave custom filters. They are able to offer custom RF and Microwave filters for 50 Ω or 75 Ω impedances and various connector types for many fields of application, including: telecom infrastructure, satellite systems, microwave links, test and instrumentation, cellular applications, military communications and radar networks. The company can supply cavity bandpass filters working within a frequency range of 100 MHz to 40 GHz and also microstrip filters, including suspended substrate technologies, for broadband performances covering frequencies within DC to 20 GHz.

ETL Systems now also offers precision made waveguide components for RF & microwave systems, which are all made to the highest quality standards and use International Flange styles and finishes to suit. Components are available in aluminium, brass or copper waveguide with aluminium or brass flanges fitted. Frequency ranges up to 40 GHz, & WR-650 to WR-28.
