Powerful benefit for you, new activity sensor added to our smallest GPS

Not only will you know if the animal moved, you can set a threshold below which movement data is not recorded so that you are in complete control over what types of movement are logged into the GPS collars’ memory.  You will also know the intensity of the movement.  You may set the sampling rate from 4 times per second to one time every four seconds.   The activity programming is in your hands and is very flexible.

Interpreting the activity data output is made easy for you in 2 ways.  First, pre or post deployment you can connect your Quantum 4000 Enhanced GPS collar to your PC or laptop by USB cable and make various movements with the collar.  This allows you to observe, in real time, how the activity sensor indicates different movements.  Second, when connected by USB cable checking movement data in real time you will not only see the numerical output but you will also see the activity displayed in a graphical format.  Again, these are strictly to facilitate your understanding of how the outputs relate to the movements being made.

But you can also request x,y and z outputs and if you so desire we can tie the activity feature into the GPS functionality so that the GPS will not turn off is no movement is detected for some period of time before a scheduled GPS location.  For small collars with limited GPS battery life this is a great way to increase the lifetime (and therefore the data) that you can expect from a small GPS collar.
