ERS EID Handheld Reader

Water and dust proof and designed for use in the tough agricultural environment 

A simple entry level reader that makes it easy to scan, record and report EID tag information. 

Eliminate the hassle of manually reading and recording tags on lively stock. EID’s can be quickly recorded by waving the reader past the animal’s ear. 
Easily download tag information by connecting the reader to your computer. Pairing with a weigh scale indicator enables you to monitor individual animal performance by recording weights and other information against an animal’s EID tag. By doing this you can accurately identify poor performers, catch health issues early or split animals into groups. 
The ERS Compact Reader case is water and dust proof and designed for use in the tough agricultural environment.
As a small handheld device, this tool is not suitable for use with large active stock in a crush or drafter situation. 

Use stand-alone or wirelessly connect to your weigh scales using built-in Bluetooth® technology.
