This is one of our small implantable tracking transmitters. This transmitter is encapsulated in electrical resin and coated in a bio-grade butyl rubber coating as to not cause adverse reactions on your animal of study. This implant is strong all the while remaining very lightweight. For our smallest implant please see our BTXRP. The BTXS3 comes with a trailing "Super-flex" antenna, if your study requires an internal coiled antenna please let us know.

Just like traditional VHF telemetry & Tracking Transmitters, this transmitter emits a steady radio pulse for the entirety of it's lifespan, VHF tracking transmitters can be picked up by receivers from extremely far distances using VHF receivers you may already be using in the field, for even greater RF output and signal strength, 3v models will always out-perform the 1.5v variants (the trade-off is size and mass). Specific frequencies are noted on your purchased transmitter or provided with your order.
