Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Our electronic readers allow a simple and fast reading of electronic ear tags. They contribute to the automation of animal traceability.

ARDES has designed, several years ago, a range of RFID electronic ear tags. But an electronic ear tag without a high-performance reading system is useless!


In collaboration with our partner laboratory in electronic measurements, the RFT Lab®, ARDES has tested reading systems and today offers you the best solution.

The readers proposed in our new range complete the best performances to ARDES ear tags:

-Reading distance


-Robustness and ergonomic.

A direct identification system


Our electronics readers are designed to meet the needs of cattle, sheep, goat, swine breeders, but they are also adapted to the needs of veterinarians and breeders of smaller animals such as pets (dogs, cats, horses…)

We have a range of 4 readers (HALO, RT 250, RT 10M, RT 100V8) of different sizes and suitable for all types of animals with RFID electronics ear tags.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) allows to enhance the animal’s identification number by implanting solutions in the field: herd management software, milking assistance, automatic weighting system, automatic animal sorting, automatic animal counting, automatic feed distribution…

Our advantages


Compliant with ISO 11784/11785 standards, our portable electronic readers offer optimal reading distance and reliable performance.

A reading distance higher than standards in the market


Thanks to the different sizes of our readers, the detection of electronic ear tags is done efficiently and adapted to the animal.

Moreover, the robustness of the products, superior to the competition, avoids any deterioration, and their ergonomic handle makes them easy to handle.



ARDES guarantees, through its range of portable reader, a high reading performance that is characterized by fast navigation. During the identification, and through different processes (USB, WiFi, Bluetooth), the information transmission from one of our readers can be done very easily to computers or smartphones and information processing software.

A wide range for all your needs


To ensure that breeders and veterinarians are offered products with unparalleled performance, ARDES recommends the use of electronic readers from our ARDES range.  Our electronic readers are adapted to all your needs: Robust, ergonomic and safe to use.

This complete range allows breeders and veterinarians to implement a rigorous management of information concerning their animals. Moreover, it can be adapted to all your needs, choose the perfect portable reader for you according to the size of your animals.

Best value for money, to try it is to adopt it!

Portable electronic readers require a proximity with the ear tag in order to read, register and transfer the number.


Perfect for cattle, thanks to its long handle, our reader allows you to stay at about 65 cm from the animal! This Bluetooth RT250 reader can connect to an Android phone via Bluetooth to read and record microchip numbers.

It combines reading, decoding and signal control functions for the ISO11784 compliant FDX-B, FXD-A and HDX microchip types. In addition, it has a storage capacity of 800 codes.
