Portable readers

LID540-FDXB

Basic small pocket reader to read only transponders conform the ISO FDX-B standard. For smaller reading range requirements without communication.

The basic member of the Trovan® pocket reader family is the LID540-FDXB pocket reader.

The dimensions of the LID540-FDXB are identical to the LID560 series, but the LID540-FDXB does not support any kind of communication features and reads only transponders conform the ISO FDX-B standard. This is what differentiates this reader from the LID560.

The LID540-FDXB has a detachable pocket clip. The housing is made of two colors ABS (squirrel grey/distant blue RAL7000/5023).

ID codes are shown on the 2 x 16 character display, which has backlighting. If the battery voltage (Standard 9V Alkaline) drops below 7 Volts, the message ‘low battery’ is shown on the display (reading is still possible).

If an ID-number was not in range of the reader during the activation period, the message ‘no code’ is shown on the display.

The LID540-FDXB is activated by pressing the push button. If the button is pressed shortly the latest transponder number read is shown on the LCD. Is the button pressed for longer than 0.2 seconds, the reader starts scanning.

There are 3 representations of the ISO FDX-B code:

  • HEX code (example: 6C723800004F0001)
  • DEC code (example: 528 000001855030)
  • Using country codes (example: NL 000001855030)

Typical applications:

  • Animal identification
  • Theft prevention
  • Applications where user is only interested in the ID of the transponder

Pheripheral equipment:

  • Carry case
  • Protection boot
  • Rechargeble 9V NiMH battery

GR250

Rugged high performance portable reader. Maximum reading distance for Trovan® transponders.

The TROVAN GR-250 High Performance Portable Reader for the Trovan® unique transponder is designed specifically to meet the most demanding environments, such as marine research applications and animal shelters applications. Foremost is the need to quickly locate and accurately read a microchip, if there is one present in the animal or the object, under adverse conditions. For this reason, read range and read area coverage have been maximized. This enables operators to quickly locate and read the microchip, even if it is not located where expected due to misapplication and even if the scanning time is severely limited. Unruly animals and harried work conditions often cause the reader to be dropped or knocked off a counter onto the floor. The reader may be hosed down to insure sanitary conditions. And when the reader is used in the field, it is similarly subjected to very harsh conditions. For these reasons, the GR-250 reader case is manufactured with heavy duty ABS and glass-filled polycarbonates that are securely fastened together. It is sealed to prevent moisture, caustic chemicals, and salt air from intruding inside the case and damaging the electronics. The handle and trigger have a rugged, ergonomic design to minimize losing grasp on the reader.

Typical applications:

  • Animal identification
