We have updated and upgraded the very successful 3 ft. Submersible PIT-Tag Detection Antenna System to provide an enhanced solution for researchers needing to detect tags in remote, hard to access sites in lakes and rivers. The new Biomark Submersible Antenna system incorporates a 3 ft., or 5 ft. diameter circular antenna, IS1001 reader with Bluetooth enabled data logger, and either a 70 AH or 180 AH LIFePO4 battery pack into one fully submersible PIT-Tag detection system that decodes ISO11784/11785 FDX-B and HDX PIT tags.
The enhanced IS1001 based system offers autotuning, increased read range (30” )*, automatic virtual test tag, noise reports, adjustable periodic standby and idling time options (to extend battery life). The all-inclusive antenna does not rely on a bank-based power source and is designed to sink in lakes and rivers where it will be anchored to the substrate. This approach allows the researcher to deploy a small-scale PIT-tag detection system from the bank or by raft/ boat in previously hard to sample areas or areas where bank based systems are subject to theft and vandalism. The antenna is designed to provide up to 15 (70AH) or 35 (180 AH) days of continuous operation on a single battery pack and has a data storage capacity of 1 million records. Data is downloaded via Bluetooth using Biomark BioTerm or Biomark Tag Manager software. Battery packs can be switched out in the field allowing for extended field operation without bringing the antennas back to the office. The Submersible Antenna has been successfully used as an all-in-one PIT-tag detection system by researchers to collect PIT tag data in both lakes and rivers, in habitats previously inaccessible to pit tag detection equipment and conventional sampling techniques (electro-fishing, hoop or trammel netting). Although the Submersible Antenna was designed specifically for aquatic systems it can be successfully used for terrestrial applications as a small scale all-in-one temporary monitoring station.
