Starting at a weight of only 5.5g  and a diameter of 22mm, the standard PERDIX Quail tag can be configured for attachment via necklace or gauze (glued). Standard battery lifespan ranges from 110 to 325 days. All Quail models are encapsulated using a very tough inert waterproof epoxy resin (available in various colours) and come with a mortality sensor and our ‘one-touch’ on/off magnet-activated reed switch.

Our transmitters have been designed and tested by wildlife biologists with extensive experience of radio-tracking various species around the world.  The price of our radio tags allows biologists to increase their sample sizes without compromising on the quality of their radio-tracking data.
