This generation of Tamperproof™ EID Tag has a unique design that provides the ultimate in usability, security and retention. This single use tag features a ridged plastic design with a Tamperproof cap. Transponder numbers are laser marked in a circular format on the edge of the tag.
Full Duplex Technology (FDX) is utilized with the Lightweight EID Tag. 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 Pale Green (1.04" Dia. X.18" Thick) Injection molded plastic. The Lightweight EID 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.
The FDX Lightweight EID tag is designed to be used in multiple species where tag weight is a factor such as sheep and goats.
Allflex FDX Lightweight 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 Retract-O-Matic may also be used to install this tag. Standard small males are used for placement in the ear.
