This version of the trapsite transmitter is typically attached to the trap "drag". Thus, in addition to pulse rate indicating a triggered trap, it can help locate the trapped animal if it moves from the trapsite.
Hermetically sealed case allows for extended deployments at the most extreme temperatures and most humid/wet environments.
Lithium power packs support operation from +70°C to -40°C, but necessitate shipping as hazardous goods.
Units can be shut down with a magnet for storage and turned on for redeployment next trapping session or season.
Units can be refurbished by Telonics, but batteries are not field-replaceable.
