TrailMaster’s TM1050 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. 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 TM1050’s non-volatile memory. The TM1050 lets you record and store more than 1000 events. With the TrailMaster TM1050 you can collect event information which will show patterns of game movement and prevent drawing incorrect conclusions based on a small number of events.

No other product offers the advantages of the TrailMaster                    Second Generation Active Infrared trail monitoring system.

The The TM1050 trail monitor has many features which make it ideal for field use. An alignment light is built in, making it easy for one person to position the system. The large, wide temperature range, LCD digital display is easily read and the simple data retrieval method allows you to review the time and date of each event as many times as needed. Defaults are programmed in so that the unit will automatically begin collecting data even if the operator forgets to set the proper mode.

Three push buttons on the front of the receiver are used to control its many functions. The TIME SET button is used to set the initial time and date functions in the same way a digital watch is set. The SET UP button is used when aligning the transmitter and receiver. Proper alignment is verified by a blinking red light on the receiver. This red alignment light is on only during the set up process, and goes out automatically after four minutes even if the operator forgets to take the unit out of the Set Up mode. The READ/OUT ADVance (R/O ADV) button is used when reading out the data. Subsequent depressions on the R/O ADVance button will cause the date and time of each recorded event to be displayed in sequence on the digital display.

TrailMaster monitors are weather-proof, allowing them to remain in the field collecting data during the most severe weather conditions, including rain and snow. Nylon straps make the monitors easy to mount securely to any tree or post. With their many features, the TrailMaster monitors offer users a great deal of flexibility and are still simple to use and dependable.

TrailMaster's second generation active infrared systems with their 150 ft. (45 m.) range can be easily concealed well off the trail. The TM1050’s non-volatile memory retains set up and event information even if the batteries are removed.  If the password protection is set in the TM1050 no one will be able to access the information in the TM1050 or use the system without the password.
