VCL-2486-M, 1:16 Pulse + NMEA Multiplexer

Description

The VCL-2486-M 1:16 1PPS (Pulse Per Second) + NMEA Multiplexer is a compact and cost-effective solution to provide up to 16 1PPS; NMEA-0183 outputs. VCL-2486-M 1:16 1PPS + NMEA Multiplexer takes 1 PPS and one NMEA-0183 as input option to provide up to 16 1PPS outputs; or 8 1PPS + 8 NMEA outputs.

Data Sheet

The VCL-2486-M 1:16 1PPS + NMEA Multiplexer may be used to multiply 1 x 1PPS to 16 x 1PPS signals; or 1 x 1PPS and 1 x NMEA-0183 to 8 x 1PPS and 8 x NMEA-0183 outputs.
