HDX PIT tags have the same look and size as the FDX-B PIT tags but are programmed differently. HDX or Half Duplex means that the tags and readers talk much like walkie-talkies. The reader sends a pulse that charges the HDX Tag and when the reader turns off the tag uses the stored power to send back the unique number. This technology allows for larger antennas with simpler designs. They can be placed directly in the water without an air gab unlike FDX antennas. The drawback is that HDX tags are slower than the FDX tags so the read time is diminished. Operation frequency of 134.2 kHz for optional read range.
Offered in bulk, in needle, and sterile.
