Table 1 Comparison between transceiver power levels and power outputs  of common VEMCO tag families. The V13-1H tag used in this study had an output power of 153 dB

From: Detection efficiency of acoustic biotelemetry sensors on Wave Gliders

Tag family Tag family power output (dB re 1 uPa @ 1 m) Comparable transceiver power level (dB re 1 uPa @ 1 m)
V7 136 Low (142)
V8 144–147 Low (142)/medium (148)
V9 145–151 Medium (148)
V13 147–153 Medium (148)/high (154)
V16 150–162 High (154)/very high (160)
