GPS PTT's can be programmed with up to 6 unique seasons per calendar year that are defined by calendar dates. The seasons will repeat for each subsequent year of operation. For each desired season, GPS fixes can be scheduled at user-defined times (GMT) or at fixed intervals (i.e every 4 hours). PTT transmit cycles to the Argos satellites are user defined.
Included software decodes transmitted messages from PTT that is received by Argos system. The software stores all data in an database for easy data storage, viewing & data manipulation. All location & sensor data can be exported into Excel & CSV data file formats. Additionally GPS/Doppler fix locations can be exported into the KML & Shapefile formats that can be viewed in Google Earth™ or ESRI GIS software.
The PTT enclosure is constructed from an FR4 glass-reinforced epoxy composite material which is very durable and light weight. As a part of the finishing process, the PTT undergoes a process that effectively displaces unwanted elements that can lead to moisture and corrosion. The PTT is then hermetically sealed.
