Please click on How it Works and watch the video below to learn more.
How it works
The first step is for you to create a schedule for the GPS data logger. Our user software makes this a simple process. As you create the GPS schedule the estimated battery life is shown on the screen. This estimate is not only dependent upon your GPS schedule but also temperature. Temperature plays a critical role in estimating GPS battery life. Our user software has a feature that will take temperature into account when estimating the battery life.
GPS data are collected and stored in the FLR V data logger memory. Data will remain in that memory until you erase the memory. Downloading the data remotely does not erase the memory. Data are transmitted to a remote base station any time the base station and data logger come within range of each other. The base station and data logger are looking for each other 24/7.
The base station is waterproof and has a rechargeable battery. You can either deploy it in the field in an area where you know that the study animal is going to be or you can take it into the field yourself. When you get the base station within range of the data logger the data in the logger's memory are automatically transferred over to the base station. One base station will work with all of your data loggers but you may purchase multiple base stations.
Our FLR V products, like all of our products, are built on a custom basis to fulfill your specific needs. Production time varies from a few days to a few weeks.
Available options for the FLR V are Smart GPS, Activity data logging, Motion activated GPS schedule, water switch for turtles, Solar battery charging and always on mode.
