Special Projects: 

         Adapting the LID 571 ISO or our detect-a-chip scanner, by adding either
         a 'probe' extension, illustrated) or a longer, flexible extension, opens up
         the opportunity to read transponders at a distance. 

          We can also supply readers with waterproof antennae able to
         read transponders underwater.
