Neoprene Collars

Attachment details...

  • Neoprene impregnated cotton duck belting Material is double layered with the antenna placed between the layers and exiting at the top of the collar (except smallest models).
  • Collars are easy to apply and allow for fitting in the field using use two stainless steel screws and simple locking nuts.
  • External antenna may be either vertical at the top of the collar, or bent slightly backward over the animal's back.
  • Electronics and batteries are enclosed in an aluminum or nylon case filled with waterproof resin and riveted to the collar material.
  • For relatively long life and more range, the enhanced range option may be used (denoted with "B" suffix).
  • Collar weights are approximate depending on collar circumference and collar material required.
  • Programmed options available.
Nylon Collars

Attachment details...

  • Used on lemurs, monkeys, Asiatic deer, any species with sensitive fur or skin.
  • Helpful where animal neck circumference may be uncertain.
  • Holes punched by user to exact requirements using cattle punch pliers.
  • Multiple colors available in two widths, 15 and 25 cm.
  • Extended range option available (“B” models”).
  • Programmed options available.
Expandable Breakaway Collars

Attachment details...

  • Utilizes a stretchable nylon material in place of or in combination with neoprene material.
  • Designed to expand as animals neck grows.
  • Used primarily on juvenile ungulates.
  • Low repeatability of field performance due to animal behavior and environmental factors.
  • Programmed option available.
Cable-Tie / Tubing Collars

Attachment details...

  • Collar consists of PVC tubing covering a coated, braided stainless steel flexible cable. The cable fits through two holes, one on each side of the transmitter.
  • A metal sleeve is crimped to the cable on each side to hold the transmitter in place. OR, more popular now, models using a Zip-Ty are also available.
  • Antenna extends upward from the transmitter, over the animal's head, or runs within the PVC to top of the necklace, exiting PVC extending upward. To make the antenna less obvious, some bend it over, but not touching, animal's back.
  • Design provides a better fit if adjusted for size at the base of the neck instead of being slipped over the animal's head. 
  • May be removed from an animal and attached to a different animal in minutes by retying the collar in the field. 
  • Ease of attachment reduces time and stress caused by handling. Good field range since antenna is positioned vertically.
  • Programmed options available on M1505 series.
Ear Tag models

Attachment details...

  • Use with immature animals or those having seasonal weight fluctuations.
  • Transmitters have short, flexible antenna; field range is less than a collar.
  • Timed duty cycles available to increase life.
  • Two ear-tag transmitters may be attached to the animal for redundancy, and may be turned on consecutively to increase life.
  • Transmitters affixed to All-Flex ear tags.
  • Programmed options available.
Tail Tag models

Attachment details...

  • Typically used on beavers.
  • Transmitters use a short, flexible antenna, field range is less than a collar.
  • Timed duty cycles are available to increase transmitter life.
  • Transmitters are affixed to All-Flex ear tags.
  • Programmed options available.
Body Implant - Coil Antenna models

Attachment details...

  • Surgically implanted into peritoneal cavity of a mammal and allowed to float freely. 
  • Commonly used on mammals whose neck circumference is greater than head circumference, and where neck collars are not appropriate.
  • High skill level required to surgically implant transmitter; involves risk of infection. 
  • Field range reduced due to internal coiled antenna and body mass of the mammal.
  • Programmed options available.
Rumen Implant models

Attachment details...

Vaginal Implant models

Attachment details...

  • Inserted into vagina of an impregnated animal with plastic silicon wings designed to retain the transmitter.  Used primarily with ungulates.
  • Reduction in temperature or a cessation in activity will sense that the transmitter has been expelled. 
  • Indicates a birth has occurred by doubling of transmitter pulse rate. PET option will indicate time since birth.
  • Field range is about one-third to one-half that of collar with an external antenna.
  • Enhanced range option available ("B" model).
  • Programmed options available.
Trap Monitor models

Attachment details...

  • Signals when a trap or other device has been moved.
  • When triggered, pulse rate doubles. Elapsed time since triggering event is indicated by counting beeps. 
  • 15 minute pre-trigger delay is incorporated to allow for device placement.
  • Includes aluminum housing with attachment holes.
  • Various pulse rate options are available depending on  requirements.
  • Programmed options available.
