Ecotone constructs the lightest movement and activity sensing collars on the market. Starting around 30g, Ecotone collars can collect high-resolution data for extended periods. UHF systems transmit locations to a base station from distances as great as 6km, and GSM systems transmit sensor data over telecommunications networks. The units can be programmed to drop off of animals so that they can be retrieved and deployed again. Solar systems enable high-resolution data collection for many years.
e-obs systems are the highest quality and most flexible systems available. A diverse range of sensors can be programmed to collect extremely high resolution data. Units can be programmed to sense activity levels and up-sample when animals are running, and down-sample during lower activity periods. Units are capable of 1Hz series to detect speed, direction, and small-scale movements. Users can develop highly customized and layered sampling regimes to address very specific research questions - exemplified by the list of top-tier journals featuring studies that used e-obs materials.
