The VERTEX Motion is a multi sensor tag including following sensors:

  • 3-Axis Acceleration sensor
  • Magnetic field sensor
  • Temperature sensor
  • Light intensity sensor

Raw data of the Motion is stored On-board with capacity for several months. Depending on the amount of data the capacity is sufficient to record from 9 up to 41 months.

The Motion comes as external tag for VERTEX Lite and VERTEX PLUS collars.

To activate and reconfigure the VERTEX Motion we developed the free software tool “VERTEX Motion Communication Tool”.

The Acceleration data of the VERTEX Motion can be viewed and processed by our Motion Data Monitor software.
