It is not terribly sensitive to the 125KHz chips on my dogs but bit does pick the chip up. Some of the less expensive scanners do not recognize the 125KHz chip. I need to have the scanner for ID for my dogs when I trial them.
This reader came very fast after ordering. I love the compact size . perfect for my use.
The scanner was easy to use and set up.
I bought the DATAMARS Microchip Scanner Compact Max for it’s ability to read BOTH 9-digit Avid encrypted microchips and European 15-digit, ISO compliant non encrypted chips. Having lived in different countries with different microchip requirements, my dogs and cats have both Avid and the 15-digit chips implanted. This scanner reads them both. Having your own scanner is a very simple way to have peace of mind knowing that EU entry ports will be able to verify your pet’s chips in the event that their readers don’t.
