Low cost GPS GSM collar from 1700 Euro: GPS PRO LIGHT

Low cost GPS collars with fix data transmission via GSM: The solution for wildlife researchers who don’t need sensor data, but want to get the positions of the tracked animals right to the computer. The collars are suitable to track herbivores as well as predators.

 

 

The big advantage: The collar price starts from 1700 Euro net, with 1D battery.
The GPS PRO Light system is a GPS GSM collar with SMS up and download feature. The collar will automatically transmit the GPS positions to a GSM groundstation in your office. In case of no or poor GSM communication conditions, the data will be resent later when the collar is back in GSM coverage. You are able to change the GPS and VHF beacon schedules even if the collar is on the animal in the field: Just by SMS sent from the groundstation. The used GSM quad-band technology (850/900/1800/1900 Mhz) guarantees a world wide operation of the GPS PRO LIGHT collar.

GPS PRO LIGHT collars are available with:

       drop off mechanism

       VHF beacon

Accessories like acivity-, temperature- or mortality sensor, can now also incorporated.

 

At least partial GSM coverage is necessary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Data exchange via GSM network

The GPS fix data can be transmitted via the SMS where GSM coverage is partially or complete available. This cost effective solution can provide GPS data nearly in real time. The cost of one SMS is dependent on the GSM network provider and starts with some cents per SMS. Up to 7 GPS fix information can be stored in one SMS. The number of GPS fix positions transmitted with one SMS can be chosen by the user. For more information about the technology please visit our site GPS GSM collar.

* The calculation of the number of positions a collar can take, are based upon the assumption that the time required for the GPS unit to fix position is 45 seconds (best field calculation), 90 seconds (average calculation), 180 seconds (worst case) and no obstacles in the reception path of the GPS receiver (open land calculation). The estimates are based on battery performance at average temperature of 0° C.

 

 

Further advantages of the low priced GPS GSM GPS collars:

       The collars are available from 480g total collar weigth.

       The battery replacement and the fix data download are easy to handle by the researcher.
                 Up- or downscale the capability of the collar with another battery pack is possible.

       The collar will configurated with the powerful GPS PLUS software incl.:

        Export data to ASCII, spreadsheet or DBASE format
        Graphical presentation of GPS data
        Export GPS data into more than 100 different worldwide coordinate/grid systems (optional)
        Automatic e-mail support for GPS and mortality data
        SQL database for all collar data (optional)
        Direct interface to Google Earth
