The Halo Scanner is a microchip scanner that reads FDX-B (15 digit) and FDX-A (10 digit) microchips. It is perfect for UK implanters looking to ensure a microchip has been successfully deployed, or owners/ breeders to identify their own pet’s microchip. The Halo Scanner should be held flat over the animal (Halo logo in the palm of your hand) when looking for a microchip to ensure the most accurate results. Features include:
- Ergonomic design for user’s comfort
- Rechargeable via a supplied mini-USB cable
- Beep to say a microchip has been found
- Good read range
- Power saver will turn the scanner off after 40 seconds of non-use
- Scanner Angel compatible (software CD supplied)
Scanner Angel allows the user to instantly see if the scanned animal has been reported missing. This makes the Halo a viable scanner for rescues, vets and other welfare agencies if used in conjunction with a Universal Microchip Scanner. To enable this feature the scanner must be plugged into a computer and the software set up. Currently only available for a Windows operating system.
