Power Tracker IV (Avid, Trovan)


The AVID Power Tracker IV is a portable, water-resistant, hand-held identity tag reader. Its patented Multi-Mode technology enables it to read id tags from different manufacturers. The Power Tracker IV can read AVID, FECAVA and TROVAN coded radio frequency identification tags. The ID code is displayed on the Power Tracker’s 16 character LCD and can be downloaded via an RS-232 cable to a computer. Optional emulation software is available to provide an automatic interface between the reader and a computer. In the operational mode, the Power Tracker emits two beep tones and visual LED flashes to signal that an identification tag has been read. When not in use, four beep tones sound every three minutes to warn the user that the unit is still on.

Read Distance varies depending upon orientation and size of ID Tag.


Avid Power Trackers are compatible with any software that supports serial port communications. Please consult our customer service representatives at 1-800-336-2843 Option 3 for Avid's premium software solutions.
