What wavelength do the IR emitters and receivers use? Can the emitters be used to transmit signals through the plastic walls of a chamber?

940 nm. Polycarbonate is generally transparent at this wavelength, but it is best to place the emitter above the enclosure without any obstructions between it and the animal. Opaque barriers should be placed between chambers if there is a chance of interference between different remotes/receivers.
