MARKPOS, MARK2POS, MARK3POS and MARK4POS

Position at time of mark input event

Platform:

OEM719, OEM729, OEM7500, OEM7600, OEM7700, OEM7720, PwrPak7, SPAN CPT7, SMART2

Firmware Stream:     

This log contains the estimated position of the antenna when a pulse is detected at a mark input.

  • MARKPOS is generated when a pulse occurs on the MK1I (EVENT_IN1) input.

  • MARK2POS is generated when a pulse occurs on the MK2I (EVENT_IN2) input.

  • MARK3POS is generated when a pulse occurs on the MK3I (EVENT_IN3) input (OEM7600, OEM7700 and OEM7720 only).

  • MARK4POS is generated when a pulse occurs on the MK4I (EVENT_IN4) input (OEM7600, OEM7700 and OEM7720 only).

Refer to Technical Specifications for mark input pulse specifications and the location of the mark input pins.

The position at the mark input pulse is extrapolated using the last valid position and velocities. The latched time of mark impulse is in GPS reference weeks and seconds into the week. The resolution of the latched time is 10 ns. See also the notes on MARKPOS in the MARK1TIME, MARK2TIME, MARK3TIME and MARK4TIME log.

The position for the MARKPOS, MARK2POS, MARK3POS and MARK4POS logs are reported in the user selected datum. See the DATUM command for more details.

Log Type: Asynch

Recommended Input:

log markposa onnew

  1. Use the ONNEW trigger with the MARKxTIME or MARKxPOS logs.

  2. ONMARK only applies to MK1I. Events on MK2I (if available) do not trigger logs when ONMARK is used. Use the ONNEW trigger with the MARK1TIME, MARK2TIME, MARKPOS or MARK2POS logs.

  3. Once the 1PPS signal has hit a rising edge, for both MARKxPOS and MARKxTIME logs, a resolution of both measurements is 10 ns. As for the ONMARK trigger for other logs that measure latency, for example RANGE and POSITION logs such as BESTPOS, it takes typically 20-30 ms (50 ms maximum) for the logs to output information from the 1PPS signal. Latency is the time between the reception of the 1PPS pulse and the first byte of the associated log. See also the MARK1TIME, MARK2TIME, MARK3TIME and MARK4TIME log.

Consider the case where you have a user point device such as video equipment. Connect the device to the receiver’s I/O port using a cable that is compatible to both the receiver and the device. Refer to your device’s documentation for information about connectors and cables. The arrow along the cable in the figure below indicates a MARKIN pulse, from the user device on the right to the receiver I/O port.
