The DAS-7006/7r is an innovative three-in-one wireless scanner system—a Reader System wand, a powerful charging stand and compact wireless communications module for transferring data to and from the handheld scanner—that is ideal for wireless data collection. Seamlessly integrated with all BMDS transponders and DAS-8000 series reader-programmers, the DAS-7006/7r Reader Systems read and process data from BMDS transponders and transmit this data to DAS-8000 reader-programmers be organized within a database format. Here’s how it works: The handheld Reader System scans BMDS transponders and stores this data internally for further upload or transmits it to the wireless communications module via wireless link up. Using any of the three serial ports, the wireless communications module can transmit received data to a PC, via USB keyboard or to a DAS-8000 series reader-programmer. The DAS-7006/7r includes a charging base that also serves as a convenient stand for the Reader System.
Designed in two models based on your data collection objectives, you determine which Reader System you use based on the transponder type required for your laboratory project. The DAS-7006r is used for the the standard Implantable Micro Identification (IMI) transponder, while the DAS-7007r collects data from the Implantable Programmable Temperature Transponder (IPTT) and the read/write non-temperature sensitive IPT.
Design Specific Features for Contract Research Organizations
After customer feedback from CROs, BMDS has enhanced the DAS-7006/7r with line charging capability for added security in handling. Additionally BMDS now offers several optional accessories, such as the silicon boot, suction cup surface mounting bracket, wall mounting bracket. The mounting bracket allows for bench top use, and portable use of the DAS-7006/7r. This meets the needs and requirements of the ergonomic, safe handling, and ease of use categories while in the laboratory animal environment.
Round-Headed Wand. With a round-headed circular scanning field perfect for isolated, stationary or larger animals, the DAS-7006/7r features a compact case design affording greater impact resistance. (In addition to the round-headed scanner design, if you need a straight narrow scanning field appropriate for tight situations such as pointing into a cage to read transponders, the companion DAS-7006/7s features a straight 11 inch wand.)
Wireless data transfer. The companion wireless communications module provides two-way data transfer to and from the Reader System, converting data to one of three output formats: Serial USB, Keyboard USB and BMDS DAS-8000 series reader-programmers. To enhance workflow flexibility, the wireless communications module may be moved away from the charging stand to remote locations, such as near a computer or separate DAS unit; it does not require a separate power supply, instead drawing power directly from the connected device.
Enhanced Scanner Memory and LED display. The DAS-7006/7r Handheld stores multiple scans that can be conveniently viewed in an easy-to-read, super-bright 12-character LED display with signal strength indicators.
Dependable, long-lasting power. An advanced rechargeable lithium-ion microprocessor-controlled battery provides dependable long-lasting power. For convenient hands-free use, the scanner remains fully functional while docked vertically in the recharging stand. Recharging is fully automatic. Or as an option you may opt for a lined powered model.
Complete, automated integration of RF data. Why call them “Reader Systems”? Because the RF processing of animal IDs and associated date takes place within the DAS-7006/7r Reader Systems and can be seamlessly integrated with DAS-8000 reader-programmers and connected PCs. The DAS-7006/7r Reader Systems feature microprocessors that can be programmed with a DAS-8000 reader-programmer to read and process RF data directly from a transponder and process it within a database format.
Scan in two convenient modes. The Reader Systems feature two scan mode buttons at your fingertips. An auto scan mode directs the Reader System to automatically scan for a transponder every 2-3 seconds, allowing a researcher to gather data rapidly from many transponders within a close location. With the manual scan mode, the Smart Probe only reads transponder data when the scan buttons are pressed.
Two versions for BMDS transponders. The Reader Systems are designed in two models based on the transponder you use. The DAS-7006r Reader System works with the the standard Implantable Micro Identification (IMI) transponder. Operate the DAS-7007r Reader System with the Implantable Programmable Temperature Transponder (IPTT) and the read/write non-temperature sensitive IPT.
NEW Optional Accessory DAS-7007R PBC. "Programming Booster Coil" Specifically designed to work with the DAS-7007 R, this accessory allows for foolproof programming of a IPT-300 or IPTT-300 in-needle. This adapter snaps right onto the DAS-7007 R reader head and requires no additional connections. Ergonomically designed for ease of use in the lab environment, it makes gloved programming a more streamlined operation. Once the device is used for the programing procedure it can be easily removed and stored. After the transponder is placed in the animal and is out of the needle, normal scanning can commence with no changes to reader setup or adjustments. If you are an existing DAS-7007 R user and would like this accessory, please contact BMDSs' sales office here, and include in the subject line Programing Booster Coil, and a representative will process your request. New DAS-7007R orders will show the device on the quotation.
