Are there any active sensors on the market currently that aren't trail masters?

Potentially something more modern?

Thanks!

We have just started shipping an active sensor. It's so new it's not on the TRLcam.com website yet. PM me if you would like more information.

I use a pair of industrial AIR light barrier devices. This being a little overkill with 50m of reach :)
They draw about 20mA/h each, and i have 2x 12V 7Ah Gel batteries running them. I cycle batteries once a week, that is little on the safe side.

The + is that these often have direct Transistor outputs.
In other words it is just a matter of connecting the 0 and PNP/NPN output to the camera trigger port. No other device is needed in between.
I use a normal 10m 3,5mm stereo plug cable for this setup

The camera can be seen a bit further away. With light barrier one can be quite sure of where the object will be when triggered. So i can even use 50mm on a crop camera in this setup.

If you use a large Nikon, they have the ML-3 active infrared set-up....works great with a D200-300 & D3-4 with the 9-pin plug...get from a big Nikon dealer...! However, if there is a lot of insect activity, use a passive infrared unit instead like the Snapshotsniper II on a hard wire...and you can set the sensor where ever you want the subject to be caught...that's the system I use for the most part...!

I have either PIR or AIR port in use depending on different things like weather, season or target. PIR do take little too much false triggers in bad weather. Like 775 frames in just one night due a rain storm last week.

I really like the AIR barrier because it takes pictures only if something passes the barrier. But on other hand do not take picture of animals that otherwise would be caught with a PIR. I have had foxes learning quite quickly where to move to not get triggered by the light beam. Raccoon dogs on the other hand to not care if the flashes goes on like strobes on a disco. All this i have seen on films that my Burrel trail cam sends me.

My sensors, both PIR and AIR are hard wired to the camera. I use a D200 and a 3200 for my 2 traps
