|Size, Weight, & Flotation|
||GEO/PSAT WITH BACKUP BATTERY||GEO/PSAT WITHOUT BACKUP BATTERY|
|Length (to base of antenna)||178mm||170mm|
|Float max. diameter||30mm||28mm|
|Weight in air||41.7g||36.7g|
|Flotation in sea water||8.3g (19.9% of weight)||8.5g (23.1% of weight)|
|Flotation in fresh water||7.3g (17.5% of weight)||7.5g (20.4% of weight)|
Weight and flotation is without tag attachment hardware (leader line & barb)
When using Hallprint model (HALL-P) leader line & stainless steel barb:
Add 5.3g weight
Reduce flotation by 4.6g for tag shedding scenario with leader and barb still attached.
Pop-up archival with programmed release time and opportunistic real-time transmissions while on-animal. Max. on-animal time one year.
Real-time tracking with reporting of latest daily summary. Unlimited on-animal time.
Stored solar power for data acquisition and ARGOS transmissions Optional internal battery supports data acquisition in darkness for over 1 year.
Three-axis precision magnetometer, 60 nT reporting resolution
Solar power panel doubling as large-surface light sensor
Temperature sensor, 0.002 deg C reporting resolution
Radio frequency surface detection for timing ARGOS transmissions
Precision calibrated clock
FLASH storage for 416 daily summaries.
Based on light and magnetic measurements.
ARGOS positions available when the tag is at the surface.
Magnetic field strength, noon time, length of day, temperature, tag status information
Unlimited transmit endurance based on solar power
Archived or most recent daily summary packets
Engineering packets for diagnostics (every tenth transmission)
Short (energy efficient) 'position only' packets available for real-time tracking
Wireless data transmission for tag configuration & archived data retrieval.
Op. Temp. Range:
-20 deg C to +50 deg C (sensor accuracy may be reduced at temperature extremes)
Operational depth rating 1200m
Typical crush depth 1800m
Technical specifications are subject to change without notice
Sizes and weights are approximate and may vary due to manufacturing tolerances or component changes
Absolute accuracy of sensors, power consumption and generation rates and the like are complex and in many cases dependent on operating conditions. Instead of guaranteeing any specific accuracy or results, we conduct lab and field measurements and publish the data as it is for your review. Please see these information sources:
A ‘Calibration Report’ is stored on each tag and is available through the SeaDock software.
A ‘Sensor Test’ function in SeaDock allows for instantaneous testing of your tags sensor functionality.
