Half Duplex Technology (HDX) is utilized with the High Performance Ultra EID Tag. HDX is a design principle whereby the transponder initiates the return signal to the reader/scanner/interrogator only after the end of the interrogation signal has been received and only after the storage capacitor has been fully charged in the transponder. The return signal is then only sent once, since the transponder has emptied its storage capacitor after it has sent its entire data content. This proven High Performance technology provides enhanced signal strength for maximum read distance.
The tag is white (1.18” Dia. X .280” Thick) Injection molded Polyurethane female with a black plastic Injection molded tamperproof cap. The hard cap of the ultra tag provides the highest degree of security available, as any attempt to remove the male tag from the female would cause the tag components to break, rendering them unusable.
For proper application and to ensure that the transponder is not damaged during application, make sure that the raised portion of the Ultra Tamperproof EID tag is positioned at the front of the applicator jaw. Allflex HDX High Performance Ultra EID Tags use the same Universal Total Tagger Applicator (RED) as the traditional Tamperproof Visual Tags. To apply tags, install Red Blunt Applicator pin and remove Black or White insert. The New Ultra Retract-O-Matic may also be used to install this tag. Extended small males are used for placement in a deeper location in the ear. See Application Guide.
A premises ID is required when ordering 840 tags.
How to get a Premise ID Number: To obtain a premises ID (PIN), please contact the state animal health authority [Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) Administrator] for your state. A directory can be found at www.aphis.usda.gov/traceability/contact_us/directories.shtml.
Ideal for use in management systems where Electronic ID (EID) is required/needed. Lets you identify animals quickly and accurately.
Reading these EID Tags:
These tags can be read by an Allflex RS420HD Bluetooth Stick Reader or any ISO-Compliant EID/RFID tag reading device. The transponder is encapsulated in a weather-resistant polyurethane material. Each transponder chip number is also printed on the outside of the tag.
Allflex pioneered electronic livestock identification with the introduction of the first EID products in North America in 1993. Commonly referred to as Electronic ID, EID or RFID (radio frequency identification), more than one million head of production livestock animals have been electronically tagged with Allflex Electronic Identification tags.
