Stick Reader

The Stick Reader


The SDL440S (identified with a blue handle) is for use with our Stock Recorder, our mini printer, Microsoft Windows PCs and Mac via Bluetooth and with our apps on Android™, iPhone® & iPad®.



Red & Green Lights
As well as an audible 'beep' on each read there is also a visual indication; a green light for a new read and a red light for a duplicate read. Perfect in noisy environments and when reading loose animals in a pen.
