Drivers Manual

Trimble DSM (TSIP) PosNet - 11

This driver will be discontinued in a future QINSy release. Please contact QPS support if you need to make use of this driver in the future.


Driver for PosNet pod Trimble DSM GPS receiver, using the special TSIP Packet 6F Subcode 3 to obtain raw GPS pseudo-ranges from the receiver.

This special Short Synchronised Measurement Packet was developed to meet WGC's specifications and is encapsulated in a proprietary wrapper for use in a radio link.

This driver cannot be used as the only GPS system in Qinsy, since it will not decode satellite ephemerides and other GPS broadcast data.
The PosNet pod does not output these data and cannot be queried to do so.
Therefore, it is important that at least one other GPS receiver is available in the same Qinsy setup.

Interfacing Notes

See description under "Trimble DSM (TSIP)" driver for interfacing information. 

Database Setup

When defining the PR observations, enter the appropriate mobile unit id's as slot numbers: the sending unit number as slot 1 identifier and the receiving unit number as slot 2 identifier. 

Additional Information

The driver is able to decode more than one TSIP Packet 6F from the same PosNet pod radio link receiver, for example if more than one mobile unit is sending raw GPS pseudoranges. Just a "Satellite navigation system" with driver "Trimble DSM (TSIP) PosNet" for each of the mobile units. Be sure to select the same COM port number and interface parameters for each of these systems, and that slot identifiers correspond to the mobile unit combination which is to be decoded. Only the sending unit identifiers will be different, the receiving unit identifiers will be the same, but this number still has to be entered.
will regard each of the systems as separate GPS systems, but only one driver process has to be started, and only one COM port has to be used.
