Introduction

   

This software allows consulting the state and configuring the modules GPS OSA 4533/4534 modules. The module is represented by a logic view (EI), through a RS232 serial connection. This graphic view allows to consult the module's state (Alarms, Events) as well as it's configuration.

1.1.

Management Features

 

1.1.1.

Configuration Management:

 
 

CMSW possesses a graphic view (EI) allowing to visualise the state of the module as well as accessing the different functions to be configured.

1.1.2.

Fault Management:

CMSW allows consulting the entire alarm and event history since it's connection de to the module. It also allows saving, exporting and printing the history for a more comfortable consultation.

1) Init (Red) The module starts up.

Cause : The module has just been connected or the user forced a restart.

2) Warm-Up (Red) The oscillator is in warm up stage.

Cause : The oscillator is cold.

3) Holdover (Red) The module is not locked.

Cause : The GPS signals is not valid.

4) Forced Holdover (Red) The module is not locked (user forced mode).

Cause : The user forced the Holdover mode with the GPS General window.

5) Squelched (Red) The module no longer sends out the signal.

Cause : The module has been in Holdover longer than the delay configured in HBSQ.

6) Tracked Fast (Yellow) The module is locked with a weaker time constant.

Cause : The module reselected and input and uses a different time constant than the one configured in order to lock correctly and more rapidly.

7) Tracked (Green) The module is operational.

START UP OR WARM UP The module is in start up or is warming it's oscillator.

TRACKED FAST MODE The module is locked on an input that has a different time constant than the one configured in order to correctly lock on the selected input more rapidly.

HOLDOVER MODE The module is not locked because either the inputs are invalid, deactivated or the Holdover mode has been forced by the user.

OUTPUT SQUELCHED The outputs of the module are occupied because the module remained in Holdover longer than the configured HBSQ delay.
