For GPS Equipment

  1. TGB

    TGB and TGSAT units share exactly the same sensors and extra features except for the Geofence that only TGSAT includes. These are:

    • Data Output:

    – GPS Data: Time / Date / Altitude / Latitude / Longitude / Speed

                    – Satellites Visible / HDOP: To estimate GPS accuracy per fix

                    – Activity Level: Allows you to measure how much activity the animal was having at the programmed time. Example: Resting would give 0, walking ~10, running ~20, fighting ~50

                    – 3 axis accelerometer: Measures the acceleration or “G” forces in X, Y and Z planes. In the absence of G forces, it measures Gravity to estimate position (mostly inclination)

    3 axis magnetometer: Measures magnetic fields in X, Y and Z planes. In the absence of any stronger magnetic force it measures the Earth’s Magnetic Field so it can be used to estimate position (mostly direction)

                    – Temperature: Accuracy ± 2°C. Resolution 0.1°C

                    – GPS Battery voltage:  Indicates when the GPS battery is close to ending

                    – Mortality: Notification sent in case the unit has not moved for a predetermined amount of time

    • Extra features:

                    – Geofence: Boundaries can be set and e-mail notifications sent when an animal comes in and/or out of the virtual fence

                    – Water sensor (optional): As GPS does not work under water, this sensor halts the GPS scheduled attempt and waits until it has come out of the water to make it. It also records if the animal is in or out of the water at the scheduled Sensor-only readings

                    – Hibernation: You can program the unit to switch to a secondary low power itinerary once it detects the animal is in the den, and it deactivates when it comes out

                    – VHF Transmitter:  100% independent to increase reliability or to share the same battery as the GPS module to minimize size and weight. Its pulsing rate and/or signal strength can be customized to fit the estimated GPS unit’s life

                    – Activity-Inactivity-Mortality:  Included on the pulsing rate of the VHF transmitter

                    – Memory: Non-Volatile and with a capacity of more than 500,000 rows of data (1 row = 1 GPS position with all Sensors and Notifications included)

                    – Battery calculator: Based on your created Itinerary, no matter how complex
