The PELIT® Leg Implant is a low cost micro-transceiver sealed in a glass capsule. This Implant has been designed with an anti-migratory cap to anchor it exactly where it is injected. These RFIDs are easily implanted using the custom built implant applicator.
The RFID Leg Implant is a passive electronic device. This means that the Implant carries no batteries and remains inactive until activated by a low-power radio frequency signal from the scanner. The scanner picks up an animal's unique signal and relays it to the computer to initiate some immeditate action or to provide real-time information on that animal.
