EID Antennas

Often overlooked, the EID antenna is a key component in an effective EID system. The orientation of the EID device is critical in obtaining an accurate reading and if the device is moving parallel to the antenna, it will in most cases need to be closer. We always recommend either twin antenna systems or a portal antenna to improve the likelihood of every single chip being read. Shearwell have developed a dual antenna that switches the orientation from one antenna to the other, making it virtually impossible for an animal not to be read.

If you use a single antenna to read sheep on a run-through basis, you could miss reads. This does not matter so much if the animal enters a crate and has to remain until it is read, but for the best chance of a secure read under all circumstances, choose twin antennas or a portal antenna configuration through which the animal must pass.

Combine this, the Race Reader, and the Stock Recorder to make automatic hands-free data capture a reality.

The SDL150 is portable and durable enough to be moved from one location to another.

 
 The SDL150 can be used with the Stock Move Express mobile phone app (Android only at the moment), and the EID Connect phone app for Android and IOS devices.

The antenna creates a localized field in which the EID device is detected, covers all orientations and fits over a race or crate. It is portable and durable enough to be moved from one location to another.
