Receiver Code Maps for VEMCO 69 kHz Receivers
VEMCO currently has two (2) active 69 kHz receiver code maps – MAP-114 and MAP-115. MAP-115 is the new global standard code map for all 69 kHz receivers. During the current transition period from the previous global standard map, MAP-114 is temporarily in place to support the small number of long life A69-1303 tags that continue to be detected by multiple receiver networks. During this transition, the correct code map for your study depends on your geographic location. Refer to the table below to determine which code map you should be using on your receivers.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT use MAP-112. MAP-112 is obsolete for all receiver models and cannot detect all 69 kHz coded tags currently sold by VEMCO.
|69 kHz Map||VR2W||VR2Tx||VR2AR, VR2AR-X||VR2C||VR4-UWM||VR3-UWM|
Standard map for all regions except North America, South Africa, and Australia
Does not detect obsolete code spaces A69-1105 and A69-1303
Standard map for North America, South Africa, and Australia
Does not detect obsolete code space A69-1105
Update to MAP-114 or MAP-115 according to your region as soon as possible.
Will not detect new tag code spaces being sold starting in early 2020.
Obsolete – No VEMCO receiver should be on MAP-112
For information on the appropriate receiver code map for VR4-Global receivers and VMTs, please contact VEMCO Support.
MAP-115: MAP-115 is the new global standard code map for all 69 kHz receivers. Introduced to support new tag types and more unique pinger and sensor IDs, this map has replaced older tag code spaces with newer, more capable, code spaces. If you or your collaborators still have active tags that use code space A69-1105 sensor tags or A69-1303 pingers, please contact your VEMCO Sales representative. Discussing and tracking your code map requirements is important to ensure correct configuration of new equipment.
MAP-114: If you are in North America, South Africa, or Australia, you should continue to use MAP-114 for the above receiver models to support the small number of long life A69-1303 tags that continue to be detected by multiple receiver networks. As these tags expire, MAP-115 will be phased into these regions.
MAP-113: As of early 2020, VEMCO will begin selling tags that cannot be detected on MAP-113. All 69 kHz receivers must be updated to MAP-114 or MAP-115 according to geographic region as soon as possible. If you have reason to believe that you should remain on MAP-113, or if you have VR4-Global receivers or VMTs, please contact VEMCO for advice.
Which maps support the code spaces I am using?
Set your receiver maps to MAP-114 or MAP-115 according to the information in the table at the top of this page. Additional information on the code spaces supported by MAP-112 (obsolete), MAP-113 (transitioning out), and VEMCO’s current active receiver maps (MAP-114, MAP-115) is listed in table below.
Obsolete – do not use
Obsolete as of early 2020
Red text and strike through indicates an obsolete code space not sold by VEMCO since 2013 or earlier.
Red text indicates a code space with few or no remaining unique IDs.
Orange text indicates a code space with limited numbers of remaining unique IDs.
Green text indicates a code space with adequate numbers of remaining unique IDs.
