The following procedure is a brief outline on how to get started with your GSG-5/6 unit.
The minimal setup steps are:
- Unpack the unit (see Unpacking and Inventory), and place it on a desktop or install it in a rack, as described under Mechanical Installation.
- Connect the receiver antenna cable to the RF Out connector on the front panel. (See also Electrical Installation.)
- Connect the power cable to a wall socket. Press the ON/OFF key to start the unit.
- The GSG display will show the Start view: Verify that the right-hand side shows an overview of a test scenario (name, date, lat/long/traj, etc.).
- If no scenario is shown, use the arrow and enter keys to select Select from the main menu. This will open up a list of pre-defined scenarios. Select one of the scenarios from this list.
- Press the start key to begin with the scenario execution.
- Start the GNSS receiver you want to test.
- Your GNSS receiver under test should see and track the generated signals. If the receiver could successfully decode the navigation data included in the signals (this process often takes approximately 40 seconds), the receiver will output the navigation fix as specified in the selected scenario. This navigation solution should correspond to the solution shown on the GSG-5/6 display.
Note: It may be necessary to clear the memory of your GNSS receiver, i.e. erase old data. This is typically referred to as a Cold Start, where any ephemeris data and almanac data are removed from the receiver’s memory.
