The MiniTracker 3 Wand Reader is designed to scan animals under water, through a cage or from a distance using the circular antenna. The total length of the antenna, handle and flexible extension arm measures approximately 4 feet, 9 inches. The MiniTracker 3 Wand Reader can read and display any AVID, FECAVA, TROVAN and ISO FDX-B coded radio frequency identification tags at 125KHz, 128KHz and 134.2KHz frequencies.
