Miniature Transmitters

The Itty-Bitty Transmitter family represents a combination of very small size and long-life acoustic transmitters. Beginning at .7g in weight in water, these small transmitters allow researchers unique choices for tagging slender fishes, while the long life, continuous transmissions allow active tracking for an entire year.

The Pico Tag family represents the smallest acoustic transmitters in the Sonotronics product line. Beginning at .6g in weight in water, these tiny transmitters will allow researchers to gain valuable information on small species never possible before. The PicoTags come standard in bullet shaped packaged shown in the photo. This packaging is more commonly used for internal implant or in cases where gluing the transmitter is appropriate.

  1. Range is typical under good conditions, using a Sonotronics active receiver and directional hydrophone.
  2. Autonomy based on a ping rate of once per second.  Extended lifetimes are available by cycling the transmitters, please contact Sonotronics for more details.
  3. All dimensions for internal implant. Mounting holes for external use available upon request.
