Wireless Color TreeTop Peeper 4 (WTT4)
This 4-channel wireless system provides a wire-free and FCC license-free method of exploring cavity nests.
Wireless TreeTop Peeper 4         Catalog # 2001.0
STI engineering takes pole-mounted video inspection the next step by combining wireless technology with the field-proven TreeTop elevating video camera family. Now biologists can "cut the cable" while they research nests as high as 50 feet in a tangle-proof environment. The Wireless TreeTop Peeper embodies all of the features of the TreeTop cabled system and offers wireless advantages of quicker pole extensions and no signal loss or loss of time due to cable management. The optional STI Wireless Master Receiver serves as a powerful training tool. Educators can add a remote monitor for training and group viewing of watchable wildlife. All without wires! In addition to the standard TreeTop Battery Belt Pack, the Wireless TreeTop transmitter has two lightweight quick-change rechargeable battery packs to operate the camera, lights and wireless transmitter.
The TreeTop Wireless Transmitter includes a "low bat" indicator and two (swappable) NiMh Lab (120 volt AC) batteries. A quick "peak" charger is included for maximum efficiency. This charger will quickly (15 to 20 minutes) "peak charge" the transmitter battery pack then automatically switch to "trickle charge" to prevent pack damage.
The TreeTop Wireless receiver and monitor are powered from the standard 12 volt battery belt pack. This battery provides 10 to 12 hours of field operation on a single charge. The TreeTop includes a battery level indicator that clearly shows the remaining battery level to help schedule recharges.
Your Wireless TreeTop Peeper is fitted with the latest 4-Channel 2.4 Ghz transmitting and receiving electronics. The 2.4 Ghz technology offers numerous advantages over the 900 Mhz single channel units.
Options: Pole bag for Hastings pole, WTT4 Wireless 2.4 Ghz 4-Channel Scanning Receiver and exchange 50-foot pole for 36-foot pole.
