7 grams and up including remote, automatic data download
Custom made for you, these micro GPS data loggers have automated, remote data download to a base station in the field. The base station is waterproof, has a 5 day battery life before it needs a charge and requires no humans, no cables....nothing external. And it is tough, you can drive a truck over it....we did just that and the base station was not affected. Telemetry Solutions produces micro GPS data loggers in large quantities just for bats!

How it works
Create a GPS positioning schedule using our user software. As you create your schedule the software will advise you about the expected end of battery life. If the battery life is not what you want, if it is too short or too long, just change the GPS schedule either by increasing or decreasing the number of GPS positions scheduled to be taken over a specific period of time. The software will automatically give you a new battery life estimation on the spot.
The GPS scheduling is done either in repeat mode or template mode. Repeat mode is just a simple interval at which the GPS will turn on to attempt a GPS position. Template mode allows you to actually set the exact times in the day when the GPS should turn on. In template mode you can create up to 20 different unique GPS schedules and apply them to days throughout the year. On our YouTube channel we have 2 videos that explain how repeat mode and template mode work. If you decide to set the Smart GPS feature then a scheduled GPS position will be skipped if the animal has not moved sufficiently since the previously scheduled GPS position. This can dramatically increase your battery life. After deployment you can change the GPS schedule remotely if you like. Both with the FLR V series and the 4000E series the data can be downloaded remotely at any time. The FLR V series download is automatic without the need for a human operator for the base station. That means that you can leave the base station where the bats roost or where the birds rest and all data will automatically be copied to the base station. Retrieve that base station and get your data.
