The MLog system consists of different hardware components:
The activity unit contains the IR-sensor and is mounted on the cage.
- RJ 45 port to wire the unit with stable cat5 cables. Power and data through the same cable, daisy chaining the units.
- Serial port to connect and control external hardware (e.g. food supplier)
- Additional sensor input
- IR sensor
Each activity unit gets a unique number, shown in the display at the front. Thus it is very easy to assign the acquired data to each cage.
The stable cage holder is fixed on the cage. The activity unit is plugged on to the holder.
