20 FPS GPS Module Featured

UFC-3-GPS-2 UFC-3-GPS-2

Updated 20 fix per second GPS Module uses a NovAtel OEM615V internal Receiver and ANT-26C1GA external Antenna and has Base Module power control, Power and Lock LEDs. This "V" version has a high vibration oscillator that nearly triples the acceleration that can be tolerated while holding lock. This unit provides not only Longitude and Latitude, but Altitude, Course and Horizontal Velocity information. The Horizontal velocity can be used as an "Event" by the software to qualify user specified actions. This could be used to prevent a motor air-start or staging if the horizontal velocity were too great.

This module has an on-board 3.3V power supply for the receiver and 8V power supply for the external antenna. It uses the stack TTL serial port directly without buffering. Resolution and accuracy are excellent. By submitting an application justifying the use to NovAtel and paying an additional fee, the COCOM limits can be removed from a specific unit. It is up to the purchaser to make these arrangements directly with NovAtel (www.novatel.com) although Black Magic Missile Works can provide assistance.
