The RS420 is designed with a larger display and high contrast LCD display screen that includes a battery level indicator, connection status indicator, and clock. The large “Green” thumb-actuated Power On/Read button activates the reader. A Red “Exciter Active” visual indicator alerts the user that the reader is “looking” for a tag within range. Once a tag is detected, an audible beeper and vibrating handle, along with a Green visual indicator that alerts the user that the tag was successfully scanned and stored to memory. The “Black” thumb-actuated button allows the user to access the reader menu. The LCD readout also displays the RFID tag number, tag type, session and total tag count. Power is provided to the RS420 Series through its removable 7.4VDC Li-Ion rechargeable battery pack which provides optimum operating time for scanning your livestock. The Li-Ion battery is recharged by using the detachable one meter long coiled cable, with a DB9(f) data connector containing an integral coaxial power jack, and provided power supply. The Stick Reader comes with a Windows® based PC utility program called “EID Tag Manager” which can be used to configure or download tag data into useful formats (Xcel, Word, etc.) The Stick Reader’s internal memory holds 100,000 (10,000 animals per session) RFID tag numbers.

Allflex eList App:

The Allflex eList App connects wirelessly to the Allflex RS420 and LPR RFID readers, the Destron Fearing DTR5 and GPR+, as well as the Biomark HPR-lite, and Agrident AWR300 readers. It allows you to easily create lists of animal information associated with Allflex Livestock Intelligence products starting with scanning and recording Electronic ID tags.

The app connects wirelessly to the reader via built-in Bluetooth – no additional hardware required and no need to connect the reader to a computer to collect information. In addition, it can support up to two additional Bluetooth devices for scanning Allflex tissue sampling units or scanning information into custom fields. You also can scan certain Allflex animal monitoring devices with the SCR420-N reader.

Collect Electronic ID, visual ID, TSU sample number and/or monitoring device ID into a single list with additional custom fields and export this information in a csv file for easy integration with other software.

Construction:

The Allflex Series Stick Reader is assembled in a rugged fiberglass tube enclosure that has been designed to be easy to hold and operate with either hand, and is convenient to position in the vicinity of the transponder being scanned. The scanning antenna coil is internally mounted in the forward end of the tube and is oriented for optimal read distance with ear tags when the axis of the transponder is coaxial to the axis of the enclosure tube. This antenna produces a read zone that extends 360º around the end of the tube in axial and radial planes, allowing transponders to be read in any relative orientation. The Allflex RS420 Series Stick Reader is available in 45cm and 60cm lengths, and weighs approximately 830g (29.4 ounces), including the battery pack. The Stick Reader is sealed to IP67 specifications for being dust tight and water immersible for brief periods. Performance Capabilities The Allflex RS420 Series Stick Reader is capable of reading the Allflex 30mm HDX RFID ear tag transponder at a maximum distance of 42cm (16.5”) (optimum orientation). FDX-B eartag transponders can be read at a maximum distance of 36cm (15.5”). The RS420 will also read HDX & FDX-B Implants of various sizes.
