MAP-Series acoustic transmitters are designed for operation with Lotek’s unique MAP digital encoded telemetry systems. MAP acoustic systems permit the unique identification of over 80,000 individual animals. Both ID-only and ID plus sensors (temperature, pressure/depth and/or motion) can be simultaneously monitored and recorded.
Unique CDMA digital coding permits simultaneous detection of hundreds of co-located transmitters at high repetition rates (to 40 transmissions per minute per tag), yielding data with higher temporal resolution and higher detection rates when compared to analog coding systems.
When used in conjunction with WHS 3250 submersible receivers and Lotek UMAP positioning software, continuous high resolution 2D and 3D tracks of tag location in time are calculated.
Efficient, high speed manual tracking made possible through rapid transmission Burst Intervals, Continuous 2D/3D position tracks available for fine scale habitat utilization and species interaction studies, Species migration timing/behavior around hydro-electric facilities.

1. Size/weight specification tolerance typically ±5%. It is recommended that specifications be confirmed when placing an order.
Sensors increase length by 3mm and weight by 0.5 (e.g. 8mm diameter tag) to 3 (e.g. 16 mm tag) grams.
2. Sensor option decreases expected life by approximately 3%.
