The SDX-500 is a fourth generation digital video recording system. It is designed specifically for long duration video monitoring applications & has the capacity of recording & storing up to 40 days of full motion video at 25 images per second.

Low power consumption & compact size make this system ideal for remote Wildlife or Habitat Monitoring both day & at night. Employing a high speed data bus this system is compliant with SD Card capacities from 64 GB up to 2 TB. Housed in a tiny Pelican style case 210x170x90mm which is small enough to carry in a back pack, rugged & weather resistant. Power is provided by a single, rechargeable 12 volt SLA type battery of 18 ~ 55 amp hour capacity.

Compact Solar Panels with built in charge circuitry are available in either 10 or 20 watt capacity; with adequate sunlight the system is capable of running indefinitely. Massive storage capacity (up to 40 days) the SDX-500 expands the potential for long duration, detailed behavioral studies of animals in the wild, especially the quantification of animal time budgets, interactions and species assemblages at gathering points. Visits of predators, interactions, hatching, fledging & other short duration events are reliably recorded; events which motion activated type trail cameras often fail to capture. Continuous recording systems are ideal for any field situation where long-term continuous /video recording is required, such as at den sites, prey sites, drinking/feeding sites and animal highway passages.
