Base Station Options

We have three different models of base station for use with our range of nanoFix® GEO+RF tags: the fixed base station, which has a larger battery and solar panel. This unit is fully immersion proof and can be left in the field for extended periods of time in order to download data.

The mobile base stations come in white or black, and are ideal if you want to move around an area searching for your tagged animal. They are also immersion proof, but have a smaller battery and solar panel.
