Hopf6039 PCI-Bus Receiver

hopf_6039

Hopf6039 Operation

When the unit is slotted into an internal PCI bus of a personal computer and connected to its external GPS antenna, the Hopf 6039 diagnostic software will display the synchronization status of the unit on the Date & Time tab in the Status field. Satellite signal strength is displayed on the Satellites tab. When the Hopf 6039 clock has successfully synchronized to satellite time or DCF77 time, the status indication changes to "clock is radio synchronouswith crystal control standard time" as shown below. If you wish PresenTense Server to use the timestamps obtained from your Hopf clock prior to this stage, see "flag1" under Driver Tunables at the bottom of this page.
