OXTS – Avviso anticipato della prevista EOL per i sistemi xNAV200,250,500,550 OXTS


Dear Customer,

EOL Announcement for xNAV200-550

I am writing to announce our plan to make the following xNAV products ‘end of life’ (EOL) on 31st December 2021. There will be no supply after this date. The decision to EOL the affected products is a response to our Gyroscope supplier announcing the same for the CRG20 gyro, which is present in both affected products.

Affected product models: xNAV200-550

With the release of the xNAV650 for Survey and Mapping Applications, we believe that we have a reliable alternative to the affected products at a competitive price point. You may continue to order any of the affected products up until December 31st, 2021. If you wish to receive a demonstration unit of the xNAV650 for evaluation purposes, then please contact us.

OXTS – Avviso di EOL per i sistemi RT1003 e OEM1000 OXTS



Dear Customer,

EOL Announcement for RT1003 and OEM1000

I am writing to announce our plan to make the following INS products ‘end of life’ (EOL) on 31st December 2021. There will be no supply after this date. The decision to EOL the affected products is in response to our Gyroscope supplier announcing the same for the CRG20 gyro – this is a key component present in both affected products.

Affected product models: RT1003 and OEM1000

It is our firm plan to develop new versions of the affected product models. This work has started already. The new versions are expected to include the same exterior (case, label, front panel, user cable) as they do now, with similar or improved performance for automotive testing applications. We intend to work collaboratively with our customers throughout 2021 to develop, test and release these new versions into the market as seamlessly as possible.

PPM TEST – New Passive Integrator and Current Probe to Range

PPM Test has expanded its offering of passive integrators and current probes with the addition of two products from its partner Prodyn Technologies.

The PI-.05 is the latest addition to the range of passive integrators and has a faster time constant of .05 microseconds and higher frequency than the other integrators. There are different standard connectors available with the integrator, including SMA, TNC and BNC. The maximum voltage will alter depending on the connector type. (FIG. 1)



PPM Test also stocks Prodyn’s new I-125-2E current probe. As part of the I-125 series, it has a mid-size aperture of 1.25 inches and hinged two piece design for durability and ease of use. The probe is a Kwik-Latch® wide band device with a usable frequency range of between 1 kHz and 200 MHz and a transfer impedance of 1 ?. It comes with the ‘N’ type connector as standard. (FIG. 2)

FIG. 2


The PI-.05 passive integrator is used in pulse waveform immunity EMC / EMP testing, while the new I-125-2E current probe is used in pulse waveform and high power conducted signal measurement on cable assemblies. Prodyn, which recently celebrated its 40th birthday, is a leading expert in the electromagnetic testing industry and provides high quality sensors and probes for its customers in the USA scientific and electronic communities. Partner PPM Test supplies Prodyn products globally, outside of the USA.

NOVATEL – Avviso di EOL per il servizio TerraStar & Oceanix POR Beam NOVATEL

TerraStar & Oceanix POR Beam End of Life

29 January 2012


TerraStar and Oceanix satellite-based correction services deliver precise GNSS corrections to users worldwide via LBand beams from geostationary satellites. INMARSAT, the satellite communications service provider for the delivery of TerraStar and Oceanix corrections, has provided official notice that the region covered by the POR beam (longitude: 178E) will be transferred to the 143.5E and 98W beams as part of the planned POR satellite decommission.

Products Affected:

TerraStar or Oceanix users with global or regional subscriptions in the following regions:

– North America
– South America
– Eastern Russia
– Australia
– Asia Pacific

Figure 1: Updated coverage area without POR



Users should not expect any performance degradation in their L-Band reception or their positioning, with the new coverage.

The change does not require any new firmware updates. Receivers with auto assignment will require no manual intervention. Receivers that are manually configured to track the POR beam, must switch to either 143.5E or 98W before February 28, 2021.

Important dates:

– 01 February 2021 – New subscriptions will no longer include the POR beam.
– 08 to 19 February 2021 – New activation messages will be sent to any users with an existing subscription that use the POR beam. This new activation message will disable the POR beam to prevent the receiver from trying to track it. This new activation message will be sent for 30 days, until 10 March 2021.

Users with an existing subscription who do not track TerraStar during the new activation period (08 February to 10 March 2021) and are operating in the POR region will have to request an activation resend to avoid any potential disruption in service.

For more detailed mission planning, please refer to the Corrections Coverage Map:
