See below the ordering box for more reader specifications.

You will see a series of questions in the Ordering Box which will help us to customize your reader for your needs. Please feel free to Contact US with any questions.

      - Sustain Push Button standard setting is "OFF" which means you will need to push the button for each time you wish to read a tag. If you choose to have the "ON" setting for Sustain Push Button, you would push the button once and it latches ON and will continue to read tags until it is pushed again and then the light in the center of the button turns off and the reader stops reading tags. This is great for giving BST (Bovine Somatotropin) shots or DHIA testing.

      - Folks with older computers may need either the USB Dongle or the 9-pin Serial Dongle for Bluetooth connection when reading right into the PC.
