A hand-held scanner with the data collection capabilities of an advanced reader-programmer system-all in one product

The DAS-6002 Portable Handheld Reader System provides an appealing, flexible reader-programmer option: Collect data from transponders with the convenient mobility of a hand-held device, while utilizing the sophisticated capabilities of a dynamic data acquisition workstation.

Featuring an innovative hand-held design that seamlessly connects to BMDS Smart Probes, a smart memory card system and expanded integration with your peripheral devices such as PCs and PDAs, the DAS-6002 Portable Handheld Reader System makes collecting and managing your transponder data easier than ever.


Many data sources-one database record. The DAS-6002 functions as a dynamic database by collecting and storing data from transponders, formatting it all into one database record within its internal memory and displaying the data in an easy-to-read Vacuum Fluorescent Display. Incoming transponder data from Smart Probes can be automatically date and time-stamped.

Transmit to almost any peripheral. While engineered to be a fully-functional stand-alone device, the DAS-6002 also can serve as a hub in a larger data collection system by transmitting real-time or stored data to personal computers and other digital devices using the unit’s data ports. This enables a formatted database of transponder data to be transferred directly into a word processing or spreadsheet document.

Expand control with a keyboard connection. Connect a peripheral keyboard directly into the DAS-6002 to create a data collection task, enter long ID codes, program transponders and use the Memo feature to add notes and observations to data entries.

Program Smart Probes and Transponders.

As a fully-integrated data acquisition system, the DAS-6002 can be programmed to read and collect data from BMDS Smart Probe scanners (SP-6004/6005. Program the DAS-6002 to collect data from a range of industry-leading BMDS transponder microchips that transmit identification and temperature data such as the Implantable Programmable Temperature Transponder (IPTT), the read/write non-temperature sensitive IPT and BMDS’s popular IMI ‘read-only’ transponder. All that is required to switch transponders is a simple probe change with no need to reconfigure data setup options already programmed into the DAS-6002.

USB ports enable PC and PDA compatibility. Plug the DAS-6002 into a PC or PDA and output data appears as a keystroke.

Portable power option. A high-quality Lithium battery enables the DAS-6002 to run for a full eight hours. The device also can be charged from an external power supply. 

Designed for easy adoption. While offering a range of complex data programming and setup capabilities for the advanced user, the DAS-6002 is easy to train users to master its basic data collection operations. A Smart Probe, easily connected to a special clip on the DAS-6002, reads implanted or needle-based BMDS transponders for identification and temperature data—depending on the transponder model deployed. Data can be easily viewed within a two-line LCD screen. Each time a transponder is read or data measurements entered, the new data appears in a second line of the screen as the previously entered data moves up to the first line. Scrolling back and forth to review data is easy.

Smart Firmware updates. BMDS provides firmware updates to enhance the input/output data collection capabilities of the DAS-6002.
