Biologger Type1

World's longest measurement time of Depth, Temperature, Acceleration, light for this size

Biologger Type1 has up to 6 channels for measuring data in this small size(diameter: 11mm, Length: 33mm, Weight in air: 3.5g). The logger is pressure- and water-proof up to 1,000m depth. With a large internal memory (512 MB), you can record long-term or high-resolution data. You can also choose from various sensor options※2. Compared to Type 2, Type1 is one size larger and it does not have battery custom options (Bigger battery or rechargeable battery) and wireless communication (Bluetooth), but the price is more affordable than Type2. * 1 Depth (or altitude), temperature, 3 axis acceleration, light * 2 The size of the logger does not change with any sensor options.

 Basic model

Depth・Temperature logger

This is the basic model for all models. The logger record the depth and temperature experienced by the animals. It is possible to grasp various aspects of the animals with even only measuring depth and temperature. When used for land animals, it is also possible to change to an altitude sensor (resolution 13 cm) instead of the depth sensor at the ordering.
  • Capable of measuring depth and temperature
  • Continuous measurement of 1 year with a sampling rate of every 5 seconds
  • Option to change the depth to an altitude sensor
  • Multi-schedule measurement function
  • Pressure- and water-proof up to 1,000m depth
  • Depth : Resolution 1 cm or less, Accuracy ± 0.5 m @ 200 m depth, Measurement range 0 to 500 m
  • Temperature: Resolution 0.01 ° C, Accuracy ± 0.2 ° C, Measurement Range -40 to 125 °
The following options can be added to the basic model depending on your need. The price changes with the addition of each option. The following options are combination examples of up to six channels. If you cannot find the suitable combination, please feel free to contact us.

Option A

3-axis Acceleration

In this option, you can add 3-axis acceleration to the basic model. From the acceleration, it is possible to calculate the activity level, activity cycle, and posture of animals by analysis.
  • Continuous measurement for 1 month (3 axis acceleration at 16Hz, depth and temperature every 5 seconds)
Please contact us for the estimation of measurement time at other sampling frequencies.

Option B

Light

In this option, you can add a light sensor to the basic model. From the light, it is possible to calculate the migration route of fish and birds which migrate on a large scale. Unlike Type 2, no stalk is attached.
  • Continuous measurement for 9 months (light every 30 seconds, depth and temperature every 5 seconds)
Please contact us for the estimation of measurement time at other sampling frequencies.

Option C

3-axis acceleration & Light

In this option, you can add 3-acceleration and light sensor to the basic model. From the analysis of light, it is possible to calculate the migration route of fish and birds which migrate on a large scale. From the acceleration, it is possible to calculate the activity level, activity cycle and posture of animals by analysis
  • Continuous measurement for 1 months (Acceleration 16Hz, light every 30 seconds, depth and temperature every 5 seconds)
