BroadBand PRO, available from Bird-x, targets pest birds with an unrelenting combination of four different sound types: 1) distress cries to indicate danger to pigeons, starlings, gulls and more, 2) predator cries, like falcons and hawks, to add realism, 3) general harassments for an all-bird defense, and 4) ultrasonic waves to guard day and night. Its development is based on 40 years of success with sonic repellers that featured one of the four types, but this is the first machine to combine them all.
Cirronet Inc., a provider of wireless industrial and OEM products, has introduced a line of four HopNet wireless I/O modems. The product line includes the HNIO-091R and HNIO-241R relay modems, which operate at 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz respectively, and the 900 MHz NHIO-091A and 2.4 GHz HNIO-241A analog/digital modems.
