The Zetron High Speed Simulcast Paging System uses timing information from the Global Positioning System (GPS) to synchronize the transmission of digital paging signals to very tight tolerances. This provides the microsecond timing accuracy necessary for high-speed simulcast paging with protocols such as POCSAG and FLEX®.
The system consists of the Model 600 Wireless Data Manager (Source Unit) and multiple (up to 1000) Model 620 Wireless Data Encoders (Destination Units). The link between the Source and Destination units may be any type (or combination) of link that can reliably transport data. Designed for non-proprietary transmitters, the system is ideal for cost effective build-out of new transmitter sites for public or private paging system operators.
Standard features include encoding for POCSAG (512, 1200 and 2400 baud) and basic FLEX (1600), support for up to 1000 destinations with TNPP routing and zoning capabilities, multi-frequency transmitter control, Trimble Acutime 2000 compatible GPS interface, traditional two-level digital transmitter interface, and multiple user-definable input/output ports. Optional features include enhanced four-level FLEX (3200 and 6400 baud) for the I20 transmitter interface, and support for other GPS devices.
Model 600 Wireless Data Manager
The Model 600 accepts TNPP input from up to three TNPP links, efficiently batches the pages with timing information from an attached GPS, and delivers the pages across a link to multiple Model 620 Wireless Data Encoders.
Model 620 Wireless Data Encoder
The Model 620 receives batches of paging data from the Model 600, and encodes the data for POCSAG or FLEX. At the precise time indicated by an attached GPS, the encoded message batch is sent to the transmitter, resulting in synchronous broadcast with other Model 620 controlled transmitters.
