Full Duplex Technology (FDX)
FDX is a design principle whereby the return signal initiates as soon as the beginning of the interrogation signal is received and the smoothing capacitor in the transponder has been charged. The return signal is received repetitively and without interruption for as long as a continuous interrogation signal is maintained. A FDX Transponder doesn’t have to store energy to be able to return its entire data signal.
The tag is yellow (1.20” Dia. X .17” Thick) injection molded Polyurethane female with a black plastic Injection molded tamperproof (Tete Rigid) cap. The hard cap of the Lightweight Ultra Bovine 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.
Allflex FDX Lightweight Ultra Bovine EID tags are applied with the Red Universal Total Tagger Applicator. To apply tags, the Red Blunt Applicator pin must be installed and the Black or White insert must be removed. 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.
