The Vertex Logger is a multi sensor tag including following sensors:

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

Raw data of the Logger 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 Logger comes as external tag for VERTEX Lite and VERTEX PLUS collars.

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

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