RS 232 cable kit for HHR 3000 Pro

Available as an accessory for HHR 3000 Pro.

The RS 232 interface and separate cable kit allow the reader to be connected to scales.

High performance

The HHR 3000 Pro may be used with a short (10 cm) or long (60 cm) antenna and panel antenna.

The panel antenna is connected to the reader and may be placed on scales, handling chutes, etc. The reader uses Advanced Digital Decoding technology (ADD), which provides optimum reading of both ISO HDX and FDX-B transponders.

Robust, ergonomical design

The keyboard has large keys and user-friendly functions. A light and audio signal indicates that a reading has been registered.

The HHR 3000 Pro is balanced and fits well into the hand. Robust grip and material ensure that the reader will withstand being dropped on the floor. The reader is waterproof and may be cleaned with a damp cloth. The high battery capacity means that you may work throughout the day without having to recharge the batteries. When the working day is over, the reader may be recharged with a network cable or separate in-car charger.

Data exchange

The reader is supplied with an USB and RS 232 interface as standard. The RS 232 interface and separate cable kit allow the reader to be connected to scales.

Bluetooth interface is available, but can’t be combined with RS 232 interface. With Bluetooth, the reader may communicate with e.g. scales and most android smartphones.

NB: All communication with pc is done through the USB cable.

Stationary readers

We collaborate on reading equipment with the Norwegian company BioControl AS. OS ID deals in handheld readers and can provide advice on stationary readers.

Our electronic ear tags are ICAR approved. This means that they satisfy international standards for electronic identification of farm animals – ISO 11784 and ISO 11785. This also means that the ear tags are compatible with electronic scales, reading equipment and other installations that comply with the standards.

Safe tagging

Combi tags are Europe’s most popular tagging system for farm animals. For livestock owners and other participants in the production chain, Combi tags are a sign of quality. They safeguard the animal’s identity from birth to slaughter enabling traceability and documentation throughout the whole value chain. CombiE tags are approved as official means of identification in many countries in several parts of the world.

Secure locking system

Combi tags have a special strong locking mechanism. The unique locking principle has been patented and re-use of the tag is impossible. The lock contains no metal parts and may be recycled. Patent no. 304771.

Optimum retention

Combi tags are made from a soft and flexible special plastic compound which can tolerate significant temperature variation, sunlight and extreme wear and tear throughout the life of the animal. The material and shape ensure a secure fit.

Laser printing

Numbers and letters are printed by laser into the plastic tag and are clear and easy to read. The print lasts for the duration of the animal’s life.
Simple, animal-friendly application

Combi tags are applied with the Combi Junior or Combi Senior applicator. The surface of the wound heals quickly. An enclosed shaft tip prevents contagion.

Ultrasonic welding

We are the only manufacturer to use ultrasonic welding to attach readymanufactured CombiE ear tags. The method is both environmentally and user friendly, making cardboard and tape redundant. The female and male tag parts are welded together into one strip and the tags are released in one simple hand movement. Patent no. 320230.


CombiE ear tags are supplied in three different sizes and meet the requirements for the tagging of cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and deer.
