ISS-1 is intended for continuous (24H) reception of signals from GLONASS/GPS global navigation satellite systems, conversion of these signals, and generation of exact time synchronization signals.

It can be used in Wide Area Measurements Systems (WAMS), at digital substations, in automated systems for measuring, monitoring, signaling and control of power facilities of power suppliers or power consumers, at power generation and transmission facilities.

Main functions

  • Reception of signals from global navigation satellite systems such as GLONASS and GPS
  • Generation of precise time signals in one of the following forms: 1PPS, IRIG-B, IEEE 1344, 10 MHz
  • Indication of operating mode
  • Self-diagnostics, including continuous antenna monitoring (failure in antenna connections and shortcircuits)
  • Warm start mode: reduction of satellite search time and synchronization time in case of a unit`s fixed location
  • Digital outputs for alarms and warnings signaling
  • Software-based configuration management
