GARMIN GPS 36
The GARMIN GPS
36 TracPak is a complete GPS receiver and embedded antenna designed
for a broad spectrum of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) system applications.
Based on the proven technology found in other GARMIN 12-channel GPS receivers,
the GPS 36 will track up to twelve satellites at a time while providing one-second
navigation updates and low power consumption. Its far-reaching capability meets
the sensitivity requirements of land navigation as well as the dynamics requirements
of high-performance aircraft.
GPS 36 TracPak design utilizes the latest technology and high-level circuit integration
to achieve superior performance while minimizing space and power requirements.
Utilizing GARMIN's own proprietary chipset, all critical components of the system
including the RF/IF receiver hardware and the digital baseband are designed and
manufactured by GARMIN to ensure outstanding quality and capability.
GPS 36 TracPak is housed in a white, water-resistant case and designed to withstand
rugged operating conditions. While the GPS 36 TracPak is designed as a "plug 'n
play" GPS solution, the minimum system must provide a source of power and a clear
view of the GPS satellites. The system may communicate with the GPS 36 via two
RS-232 compatible bi-directional communication channels. Internal memory backup
allows the GPS 36 to retain critical data such as satellite orbital parameters,
last position, date, and time. The GPS 36 TracPak also comes with a thirty-foot
30 foot power/data cable with bare wire ends. Accepts power from unregulated high
voltage power supplies between 6 and 40 VDC. Asynchronous serial data interfaces
via 2 serial ports with true RS-232 voltage level outputs.*
serial inputs are compatible with either true RS-232 or TTL/CMOS voltage levels.
Port 1 uses NMEA 0183 data format. Port 2 transmits binary position and raw measurement
data and receives RTCM SC-104 differential corrections data, message types 1,
2, 3, and 9.
