How to choose the right logger

ECOTONE TELEMETRY FAQ

The most important part of planning project with telemetry equipment is to find the RIGHT one for target species. It has to be underlined that tracking equipment MUST be safe for animal. Therefore the GPS logger weight limits should be NOT exceeded especially in case of small species.

How to attach logger - BIRDS

Murre - tape attachment Logger GPS-UHF

There are few methods to attach loggers. So, in case of birds we may use collars, leg rings as well as harness or just glue loggers to feathers.

Each of the methods have to be chosen with great attention to bird behaviour and body weight.

How to set the right settings for GPS-UHF loggers

HOW TO SET GPS-UHF LOGGER ECOTONE TELEMETRY

The most important part of this point is to describe correctly project needs as well as possible data transfer. Thus it is important to remember that each data transfer method used in our trackers / loggers (GPS-UHF / GPS-GSM / GPS-UHF-GSM) is a different one and have to be planned (and set) separately.

How to set the right settings for GPS-GSM loggers

 

Najważniejsza kwestia to ustalenie potrzeb danego projektu, jak i możliwego transferu danych. Trzeba pamiętać, że przesył danych jest różny w różnych typach loggerów (GPS-UHF, GPS-GSM, GPS-UHF-GSM) i powinien być planowany i programowany osobno.

Przesył danych GSM
Należy uwzględnić dwie istotne kwestie, zanim podejmie się decyzję odnośnie ustawień loggera GPS-GSM (oraz GPS-GSM-UHF). Po pierwsze należy pamiętać, że SMS zawierający zebrane pozycje wysyłany jest TYLKO co 4 pozycje GPS. Jest to trwałe ustawienie i nie podlega zmianie. Po drugie potrzebny jest ważny abonament GPS na transfer danych.

Abonament GSM
W związku z tym, że oferujemy loggery GPS-GSM z naszymi kartami SIM, konieczne jest naliczenie abonamentu za transfer danych GSM (tzw. GSM fee).

How to set the right settings for GPS-GSM loggers

The most important part of this point is to describe correctly project needs as well as possible data transfer. Thus it is important to remember that each data transfer method used in our trackers / loggers (GPS-UHF / GPS-GSM / GPS-UHF-GSM) is a different one and have to be planned (and set) separately.

GSM data transfer
Two things are very important to set the best settings in case of GPS-GSM (and GPS-GSM-UHF) loggers. First one is to remember that SMS with collected positions is send ONLY every 4 GPS fixes. This is a general setting and is not to be change. Second is that you need to have a valid GPS Fee for data transfer. As the last one might affect your data collection we will start from this point.

GSM FEE
Since we do supply GPS-GSM loggers with our SIM cards a separate calculation for GSM data transfer (GSM FEE) is necessary. We do offer 4 schemes for GSM Fee:

GSM fee EU countries outside EU
  GPS fixes/day GPS fixes/day
EUR / year
without VAT
GPS fixes/month GPS fixes/month
160 12
360
6
180
320 24
720
12
360
640 48
1440
24
720
1280
48
1440

In addition there are some conditions to be underline:

• GSM fee for each logger is paid in advance for one year,
• Agreement period starts one week before the delivery date and once started can not be stopped,
• Maximum number of GPS positions/month in chosen GSM plan is not transferable between months,
• GSM fee for lost loggers (SIM cards) is not refundable,
• Fee from lost or not used devices is not transferable to other SIM cards,
• Phone number from lost logger can be transferred to new device only within agreement validity period,
• Customer can use shorter intervals (more fixes per day) than specified in GSM plan but for exceeded data transfer/month, separate Invoice for each month will be sent,

• IMPORTANT: Customer will be charged in all cases when data transfer/month will exceed month's quota.
 

As you might see conditions are similar to those offered by GSM companies.
