The configurable GPSG-1000 is a truly portable, easy-to-use GPS and Galileo positional simulator. It fills a gap in the market by providing a low-cost 12 channel test set that creates three-dimensional simulations. This new simulator is also designed to be software upgradable. Versatile time-saving portable test set for GPS/GALILEO receivers including WAAS/EGNOS SBAS simulation

System - Simulated 3D position may be user entered in latitude/longitude/height format or 3D position may be dynamically simulated utilizing a multi-leg waypoint entry scheme. An unlimited number of navigation plans may be saved and recalled under a user assigned name. A built-in GPS receiver allows positional simulation in the form of a range, heading and altitude based on current test set position.

Satellite Vehicle (SV) Selection - All GPSG-1000 configurations allow GPS and Galileo satellites to be mixed. (The Galileo codes may be updated via a text file upload.)

Waypoints - Waypoint legs join up in 3D space, with either range rate or altitude-rate being auto calculated. Trajectory changes are calculated to simulate real world navigation, i.e. waypoint leg heading changes utilize realistic rates of turn; altitude changes utilize realistic rates of descent or climb. Way points may be entered in LAT/LONG form or automatically recalled from an airport or city database.

SBAS - SBAS satellites WAAS/EGNOS may be manually selected or automatically based on simulated position.

Setup - The setup page allows system, user and RF connection parameters to be set by the user.

NoiseKen - Impulse Noise Simulator ( INS series )
Noiseken simulators to reproduce fast rise-up noises which are generated when switching ON / OFF electric current on the inductive load.
Since the pulse includes broadband frequency and its rise-up time is fast at 3ns or less, it can make the noise coupling dense and effective to reproduce the malfunctions of electronics equipment under the test.
It can realize performance evaluation of electronics equipments upon reproduction of line noises which are intruded to the power supply lines or induced noises onto the telecommunication lines.

NoiseKen - Fast Transient Burst Simulator - FNS-AX3
Electrical fast transients (EFT), such as switching transients originating from inductive load interruption, relay contact bounce, etc., are one of the main causes of equipment malfunctions. Because they can occur anywhere interfering with circuits primarily via mains and interconnection cables.
EFT is characterized by fast rise times and a short duration of pulses. Also significant is the fact that EFT comes in bursts with repetition rates exceeding 100kHz. In the real world, an EFT event is a series of pulses with changing amplitudes and repetition rates. For test purposes, the IEC 61000-4-4 standard defines an idealized EFT/B. For anyone who wants to build quality products with an extensive test program from design, qualification, production to diagnostic purpose, the FNS-AX3 simulators will serve as a critical tool with a new level of performance and efficiency meeting and far exceeding the IEC standard requirements.
