DAS-8029 BSC
Basic Reader


The DAS-8008 BSC Basic Reader & DAS-8029 BSC Basic Reader are portable, display-only reader. It is a simple cost-effective solution for small laboratories wanting to implement electronic animal identification. The DAS-8008 BSC portable handheld reader allows for scanning ID data from BMDS IMI-400, IMI-500, and IMI-1000 implantable transponders. The DAS-8029 BSC portable handheld reader allows for scanning ID data from BMDS XPT-100, IPT-300, and IPTT-300 (ID-ONLY) implantable transponders. The reader is simple to use and will quickly display the animal ID on the bright OLED screen. The last ID read will remain on the screen until a new scan or until powered off.

A simple menu is available on the membrane panel for selecting various options such a read beep, vibration feedback, and duplication scan filter. Auto modes now include the time between consecutive reads and timed shut off. All menu features and setup can be password protected to avoid accidental changes.
