Introducing the world’s first GSM telemetry device with Argos Satellite capability. Available now!
You asked, we listened. While cellular data networks can transmit the most information, they are not available everywhere. Argos can work from anywhere, but can only send limited amounts of data. Now you can have the best of both worlds with the ES-500.
When your animal leaves the coverage area, summary data is transmitted to the Argos network. Critical information, such as position, device health, activity data, as well as illness or mortality information, can be transmitted from anywhere.
Once your animal returns to the cellular coverage area, our large data sets collected can be sent over the network, still allowing for rich datasets on migratory patterns and behavior.
Argos hybrid capability is available on tracking devices at 25 grams and above.
Also, with our smart Argos duty cycles, Argos can be configured to transmit only when needed, and certain days of the month. This can substantially reduce Argos data charges, further reducing operating costs.
