ART-01 Acoustic and Radio Transmitter

The ART-01 transmitter is a combination acoustic and radio transmitter manufactured through a joint effort of Sonotronics and Telonics. It intermittently emits an acoustic pulse at a standard Sonotronics crystal controlled frequency, followed by an RF pulse within the 148-154mHz range.

When ordering the ART-01 please submit a list of potential RF frequencies larger than the actual number of tags being ordered. This will assist in rapid fulfillment of your order

NOTE: The Telonics Radio Module used in the ART-01 is no longer available, Please contact Sonotronics for further information.

Receivers for use with the ART-01

You will need separate receivers for the acoustic and radio portions of the ART-01 transmissions. Standard Sonotronics receivers are ideal for the acoustics, and an appropriate Telonics RF 2 meter radio receiver is recommended for the radio. Please visit for more in depth information on Telonics products.

Antennas for the ART-01

As the appropriate antenna is application specific, please contact Sonotronics or Telonics for more information regarding antenna choices.
