User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 2. Brief Overview 2.1. Function SICLOCK GPS1000 is a modern GPS radio-controlled clock which can be used worldwide for the reception of time signals from the 24 American GPS satellites. At the output of the GPS1000 antenna head a DCF77 time telegram with Greenwich Meantime is available.
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 Connection to SIMATIC S7 Digital input: via shielded twin-core control cable from terminal X2/1,2 at SICLOCK GPS1000 PS to the corresponding SIMATIC S7 digital input. (necessary function module for step7 - software: 2XV9450-1AR30). 12. Switch on the mains power. When the green LED “Pwr” is illuminated, the initializing of the antenna head now begins (yellow LED “Sig”...
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 3. Installation instructions 3.1. Connection to SICLOCK TM or PC Fig 2 shows a schematic diagram of the connection of GPS1000 to SICLOCK TM or to a PC without lightning pro- tection.

Set time zone according to the location in relation to GMT (see SICLOCK TM manual) Fig. 3 shows in schematic diagram the connection of GPS1000 to SICLOCK TM or to a PC with the lightning pro- tection module 2XV9450-1AR83.
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 3.2. Connection to SICLOCK TC400 / TC100 or TS Fig. 4 shows in schematic diagram the installation of SICLOCK TS without lightning protection . The parts illus- trated in photo and the grey cable are included in the scope of delivery for the complete package SICLOCK GPS1000.
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 shows a diagram of the connection from GPS1000 to SICLOCK TS with lightning protection module Fig. 5 2XV9450-1AR83. The parts illustrated in photo and the grey cable are included in the scope of delivery for the complete package SICLOCK GPS1000 except of the lightning protection module.
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 4. Lightning Protection When exterior antennas are used in industrial areas, a reliable lightning protection is of the utmost importance for operating the system safely. The installation of a lightning protection unit alone is not sufficient. The antenna and antenna cable must be in- stalled in such a way that a direct stroke of lightning or flashover in these parts is not possible.
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 4.2. Parts of buildings in danger of being struck by lightning The determination of potential areas in danger of being struck by lightning can be done in a very simple way by conjuring up a mental picture of the ball of lightning rolling over all the surfaces and edges of the building to be examined (see Fig 7 Fig 8...
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 4.3. Inducting effect during lightning strikes Another important parameter influencing the choice of antenna location is the induction effect which arises from lightning conductors or building parts where lightning current flows through. When the lightning hits into a lightning conductor, within a few hundred nanoseconds, voltages of several megavolts are built up, which result in conducted currents up to several 10000 amps with correspondingly steep surge pulse edges (depending on the inductive resistance of the lightning conductor).
User Manual SICLOCK GPS1000 5. Mounting the antenna 5.1. Procedure for selecting the installation location The best reception is achieved when the antenna is installed in the open air. This however, means that there is a possible danger of lightning striking. Therefore the location selection criteria in chapter 3.4 are of utmost importance! Concerning the best performance for signal reception, the following points should be taken into account when selecting a suitable location:...
