VisAdvies uses Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) technology from Oregon RFID to study fish migration, to evaluate a fish passage or to perform mark & recapture research.
For this technique, fish are caught and marked with a PIT tag after which they will be released back in the waterway. Within this waterway, antennas that can read this PIT tag are placed and connected to a central PIT Reader. A single reader has the capacity to connect four antennes. As a fish enters the detection zone of the antenne, the unique ID of the tag, the date, time and antenna number will be read and send to the central station.
Wireless Internet Module (WIM)
VisAdvies' Wireless Internet Module (WIM) for the Oregon PIT Readers facilitates data transfer from the study site to your office over the Internet in a fully automated way. The data is transferred on daily basis through a 3/4G Internet connection or a LAN network if available at the study site. The data will be made available instantly after the data is transferred from the study site. In case of a battery powered system (solar), course of the battery voltage can be consulted at any moment. The data transfer progress of the PIT Reader system can be monitored accurately to avoid unnecessary “down-time”.
