Power to the transmitter can be supplied several ways. The best way for you depends on your application. The following paragraphs will give you a quick overview of the benefits of each method:
Standard Battery Powered Systems
Power is supplied by standard batteries, which can be purchased practically anywhere. An auto-on option is available, which activates the transmitter when a slight vibration is sensed. When motion ceases the transmitter is turned off after a factory set period of time.
Rechargeable Li-Ion Powered Systems
Power is supplied by an ATi provided, Li-Ion battery pack. A Power Control Module (PCM) is built into the Model 2110RB Collar Assembly, which allows for in-collar recharging. The transmitter can be turned on and off remotely from the receiver. Additional features include transmitter status and battery level presented on the Model 2125B Receiver display.
Inductively Powered Systems
Power is supplied to the transmitter inductively for continuous, non-interrupted measurements. No batteries are required because the IPS delivers power through a stationary loop antenna to a rotating loop antenna. The rotating loop antenna and Induction Power Converter are embedded into the Model 2010i Collar Assembly.
