The GTR55 is a multisystem/multifrequency GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) receiver intended for time and frequency transfer. The receiver supports both code and carrier phase measurements. Thanks to large receiver bandwidth and advanced signal processing, even the code measurements provide sub-nanosecond accuracy. The built-in calibrator measures continuously the internal delays of all supported signals ensuring high long-term stability. The receiver can be directly connected to a local net or internet which allows remote control and output data download and upload.

PN (RN): 2065.100.30


The operation is fully automatic. After the very first configuration, the receiver continuously collects the measurement data. Output files in several standard/proprietary formats can be generated from the collected data. The data processing can be started manually or by a scheduler which enables routine processing at given times (daily, weekly, ...). The resulting data files can be downloaded from the receiver, automatically uploaded to a server or automatically saved to an external disk. A brief message is sent to an e-mail address after the processing is finished. The output measurement data can be referenced to the input 1PPS and/or to the output 1PPS time mark.


Remote control

The receiver can be controlled from any computer on the net. The User Interface has the form of a web page which can be accessed using a web browser. It enables control of the receiver, monitoring of the receiver operation, and download of the measurement data. Authorization is required to access the receiver.


Diagnostic system

The diagnostic system indicates several dozens of operational events and states. The diagnostic messages can be recorded in the log, displayed in the User Interface, and sent to an e-mail address.


Monitoring with graphical representation

History of operational parameters (time difference, temperature, satellite elevation/azimuth, ...) is displayed in graphs in the User Interface.
