HTI’s TagProgrammer Software does just that; it programs acoustic tags. Model 795 Acoustic Tags are NOT pre-programmed. The user gets to configure tag operating parameters prior to the study. And since acoustic tags all have a finite shelf life and a finite operational life, TagProgrammer allows users to turn tags on when they are ready for use and turn them off when they're not.
To program a Model 795 Acoustic Tag requires a computer installed with the TagProgrammer Software, and a supplied serial cable that connects the computer to the programmer. We also recommend having an oscilloscope to verify and measure the programmed state of the tag.
TagProgrammer is a Windows™-based application that gives users control to set the pulse width and period (among other options) to best suit a projects’ needs.
