Trailmaster's Active Infrared Trail Camera


TrailMaster’s TM1550 is a Second Generation two-piece active infrared trail monitoring system which uses an invisible infrared beam across the trail between the transmitter and receiver. (150 ft./45 m. range)

The infrared energy is transmitted as a wide beam from the transmitter, and received in a small 3/8" diameter window on the receiver. The only part of the transmitted beam which is sensitive to being broken is the narrow 3/8" beam which is received by the receiver. See Figure 1 below. By setting the beam at the chest height of the animal you wish to monitor, and controlling the length of time the beam must be blocked before it registers as an event, you can count only the animals you want, and ignore other animals or objects which pass through the beam.

This patented TrailMaster system provides a monitor which is easy to align, but one with selective sensitivity to allow you to monitor for movement of specific game. The TM1550 Second Generation two-piece active infrared trail monitor and its accessories are the standard by which all other trail monitors are measured.

Two piece Active infrared technology sets the standard in trail monitoring technologies. Each time an animal passes through the infrared beam, the event is recorded by date and time to the minute. This event information is stored in the TM1550’s non-volatile memory. If the optional TM35-1 Camera Kit is attached, the TM1550 system can also take a photograph of the animal as it breaks the beam.

The TM1550 lets you record and store more than 1000 events. With the TrailMaster TM1550 you can collect event information and take photographs which will show patterns of game movement and prevent drawing incorrect conclusions based on a small number of events.
