Continuous monitoring of activity and temperature up to 60 days!

Record from multiple animals simultaneously

Animals can be implanted with a nano tagTM device and activity and temperature data can be collected from all of them at the same time.

Continuously record for up to 60 days*

The nano tagTM internal battery will last for up to 2 months. Data can be recorded not only continuously but also intermittently for 60 days by turning on/off the power externally. Additionally, “timer stop mode” enables you to set up the device so that it will start/stop recording automatically at designated times.

* The battery life (60 days) is based on 24-hour measurement with a single 2 min/day communication for retrieval of data. Battery life is dependent on a number of factors pertaining to use.

FeliCaTM communication

Recorded data are stored in the nano tagTM device. Stored data is retrieved into your PC by FeliCaTM communication. A simple, light touch of the RFID card reader/writer(PaSoRiTM) on the nano tagTM, can be used to start/stop data recording. Recorded data is retrieved while the nano tagTM is implanted in animal body*.

Battery surface

Small and Lightweight

The nano tagTM is smaller than a dime (18.8mm dia.) and weights only 2.7g (including the battery). To make it lightweight and waterproof, nano tag® is a single-use device or disposable. The battery is unreplaceable.

Activity measuring method

Activity is defined as Cross Count Data.

[ Cross Count ]
Counts the number of times XYZ acceleration vector synthesized waveform crosses the threshold levels from bottom to top per Recording Interval(Cross Count).


Recording Modes

The following 3 modes are available.

  • “Loop mode” – Overwrite existing data from the beginning when the memory becomes full
  • “Memory – full stop mode” – Data is stored sequentially until the memory becomes full
  • “Timer start/stop mode” – Start/stop at designated times

 nano tag® Viewer Software “nanotag/Viewer”

The nanotag/Viewer enables you to change the setting, retrieve data, make a graph, and output to a CSV data file.

  • Change settings of nano tagTM
  • Control start/stop of data acquisition
  • Retrieve data, Reset
  • Make graphs
  • Output to CSV data files
