Escape Plus

Designed to protect large agricultural areas, a diagnostic unit on the device checks that it is operating correctly and monitors the battery charge. The data collected is sent via a low power wireless network in order to verify, in real time, the operating status of the device through a web interface (through a computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.). The Escape Plus does not need to be connected to the mains electricity supply since it has an autonomous power supply:”Energy Harvesting” from a photovoltaic panel and buffer battery allows it to operate autonomously for 48 hours. Furthermore, in order to avoid the risk that the animals might become accustomed to the ultrasound emissions and to minimise noise pollution, thanks to a PIR (Passive InfraRed) sensor, Escape Plus will only activate when it detects an animal. The device’s emission power is approximately 120 dB measured 1 metre from the device. Extensive tests have shown that animals do not get accustomed to this deterrent system because the device continuously changes the frequency of the ultrasounds it emits.

Escape Basic

The Escape Basic device is designed to deter ungulates from approaching domestic areas (lawns, vegetable and ornamental gardens, etc.) by an electrical powered network of devices (220 volts). A PIR (Passive InfraRed) system installed on the device can detect an animal up to 25-30 metres away and only then will ultrasounds be emitted. These emissions are specially modulated over time to generate an extremely effective protection against ungulates. The ultrasound frequencies emitted are inaudible to humans. The device is powered by mains voltage via a 10 metre proprietary IP68 cable which is included in the purchase kit. A network of devices, connected in series, can be built using a cable supplied by Natech (on request) and, in this case, only one device needs to be connected to the mains electricity supply. The acoustic power output is 110 dB measured 1 metre away. Extensive tests have shown that animals do not get accustomed to this deterrent system because the device continuously changes the frequency of the ultrasounds it emits.
