How do I enable/disable my LD3/LD3S?

Note: This description assumes that an external computer, running the VERIPOS L-Band Control 2 software, is already connected to the LD3/LD3S.

VERIPOS correction signals are provided as a chargeable service. If an LD3/LD3S is disabled, it will not output RTCM corrections or positions. The unit can be enabled by contacting the VERIPOS Helpdesk.

Note: The VERIPOS Helpdesk can only issue activations if a Service Access License (SAL) exists and the license number can be determined. Licenses must be pre-arranged between the user’s company and the VERIPOS Operations Department.

The LD3S can only be enabled if it is receiving L-band signals from a geo-stationary satellite. Ensure the Sync indicator is illuminated before contacting VERIPOS Helpdesk to enable or disable unit. The ID indicator will be off when the unit is first switched on. It will not be illuminated until the unit has locked to the L-band signal. (Sync indicator illuminated.)

Checking Current Status

The current unit status can be determined from the “ID” LED on the front panel.

ID LED is on and solid  (LD3S is ENABLED)
ID LED is extinguished (LD3S is DISABLED)

Determine Unit Code and Service

To enable (or disable) the unit, the user must be locked to a L-band beam to allow for receipt of activation (deactivation) sent by the VERIPOS Helpdesk. In order to send activation or deactivation, the VERIPOS Helpdesk will require the Unit Code and SAL code.
