The Bluetooth Emitter, the Acquisition Unit and the Analysis Server: the intelligence of DECRO®
The emitter contains the electronic used to collect the 3 biosignals, and the latest generation of Bluetooth low energy radio module to transfer data. We have made all efforts to miniaturize the electronic and to minimize the weight supported by the animal, without making trade-off on signal’s quality and autonomy.
The acquisition unit and/or the analysis server (depending on the choosen range) contain our proprietary software and receives the biosignals send by the emitter thanks to the Bluetooth which has been designed to comply with industrial ElecroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) requirements. It is a complete plug-and-play experience, without harassing setup or license management on every user’s computer.
“The Bluetooth communication protocol embedded in our solution has been extensively tested in multiple situations and has demonstrated its reliability.“
Emitter main features
Embeds 3 physiological sensors
The emitter embeds a high-resolution ECG (24 bits, 500Hz), a high-resolution respiratory inductive plethysmography (32 bits, 200Hz), and a 3D accelerometer (16 bits).
Optimized weight (15g) and ergonomics
The emitters, with its battery, only weighs 15g and the ergonomics is optimized to allow the animals to express their normal behaviour.
USB rechargeable batteries
The emitter is provided with two USB rechargeable and replaceable batteries. They are reusable without repackaging.
Acquisition unit and analysis server main features
DECRO Start and Advanced range
The setup will differ depending on the number of animals you are recording simultaneously and therefore the solution you have (Start or Advanced).
1 acquisition unit is needed for 2 animals and up to 4 animals to record simultaneously, you will additionally need 1 analysis server.
The acquisition units and the analysis server work together in a unified way, exactly as a single hardware. Check our catalog to know more.
Plug & Play solution
The acquisition unit is very simple and rapid to setup. There is no need to install anything on your computer since everything stands in our hardware.
Robust hardware and small footprint
Designed to resist to harsh environment and operate on 24/7. The acquisition unit has a low energy consumption and a fanless design to make it dust proof and noiseless.
