About this product

The TM1550-PS is a second-generation two-piece active infrared trail monitoring system that allows you to record movements of animals or trigger a still image camera. An infrared beam between the transmitter and receiver can be set up across a path or opening to record a date- and time-stamped event, every time an animal crosses the beam. Adjust the height of the beam to record specific animals. Compact, rugged, and easy to set up, Trailmaster trail monitors are weatherproof and able to operate in a wide range of temperatures (-40 to 55°C). TM1550 units are powered by 8 x C cell batteries and the battery life is up to 1 year. 

All monitors in the TM1550 series can be used with a camera to produce images once the trail monitor is triggered. The PS series have advanced camera controls which allow you to select how many photographs are taken once an event is registered, and the delay between each photograph. The delay interval can be set from 6 seconds to 98 minutes and the PS model also allows you to select how long the camera activation signal lasts. This means that if you are using a camera in continuous picture mode you can select how many photographs will be taken in each burst. Video footage of animals can also be obtained if a Trailmaster TM1550 unit is connected to the Trailmaster TM700v-RT, where it acts as a remote trigger for a video camera.

Please see our range of Trailmaster Camera Cables for details of which cable is required to connect Trailmaster models to your camera.
