Wildlife Collars with Remote Communication

Lotek’s GPS 7000 series collars feature UHF radio or Argos transmitter and user-replaceable batteries.

 

Based on the proven design of our other GPS systems, the GPS 7000 Series of remote tracking collars have user replaceable batteries and can collect up to 17,000 data records.

Using the high speed UHF modem, data records can be downloaded and schedules can be changed at the user's convenience. For migratory species, a collar can be equipped with an Argos transmitter so that GPS data can be transmitted via satellite and ultimately sent to you at your desk. This significantly improves the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of any wildlife study.

Lotek offers unlimited customer support and a full one year warranty on all of our equipment.
