|Within Vocab||SeaVoX Device Catalogue|

|Definition||A 16 mm diamter acoustic transmitter used to track and determine the behavioural patterns of medium to large marine species. Coded transmitters send acoustic pings at 69 kHz that are infrequent and random about an average delay. This ping train includes an ID number which permits identification of the specific tag along with the sensor telemetry data. The V16 can function as a simple pinger for location only, or it can be equipped with additional sensors to include depth (V16P) and temperature (V16T) data, or both (V16TP). When used with the VR2W or VR4-UWM receiver, they can be used to track large numbers of fish over large areas. The V16 can also be manually tracked using the VR100 acoustic tracking receiver. The V16 tag will last anywhere between one month and several years depending on the chosen battery size, and will give a transmission range in excess of several hundered metres.|
