Power Tracker VII (ISO FDX and HDX)


The AVID Power Tracker VII is a portable, water-resistant, hand-held identity tag reader. Its Multi-Mode technology enables it to read ID tags from different manufacturers with different protocols. The Power Tracker VII can read and display ISO FDX-B and HDX ID tags conformant with ISO 11784 and 11785 standards. The ID code is displayed on the Power Tracker’s 16 character LCD and can be downloaded via RS-232 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 a 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.
