M5 Interrogation Software
M5 software operates unattended at interrogation sites registered with PTAGIS, collecting and submitting observations of PIT tagged fish in near real-time. Please review the help file for more information about installing, configuring and operating this software.
M5 is comprised of multiple components, each with separate installers:
- M5 Monitor Service is a long-running background service without a user interface that processes data from connected transceivers into files and uploads them to PTAGIS. Can be installed on Windows or Linux platforms.
- M5 Control Panel is a client application (pictured above) used to configure and operate a connected M5 Monitor Service running on the same or different machine.
- M5 File Manager is an application to correct and resubmit rejected M5 data files.
- M5 Terminal Utility is an application used to configure transceivers and troubleshoot connections.
