Auto-Tuning Reader (ISO FDX and HDX)


The Avid Auto-Tuning Reader is an ISO stationary reader that can adapt to your applications. This reader automatically tunes to a variety of antennas and surrounding environments. Set-up is simple: just plug in the antennas and switch on the power to start reading!

With auto-tuning, antennas can be customized to fit your installation sites. The standard antenna is a 25"x33" solid panel optimized for ISO bolus tags. Metallic-frame, plastic-frame, and flexible-loop antennas are build-to-order. Tell us about your projects, and our engineering team can design the best solution for you.
