The Data Handler is a portable device that is used to communicate via RF with the EMMs used in a herd test. One Data Handler can work with a parlour full of EMMs. Herd information is checked for accuracy as it is entered, thereby minimising errors . The Data Handler can interface with a printer allowing fast feedback after a herd test. The Data Handler can also interface with a PC allowing two way communication with the herd recording database and removing the need for manual data entry at the laboratory.

Utilises a long-life rechargeable battery. The Data Handler can be used in any milking environment.

- RFID Interface
Automated RFID capability can be switched on, ensuring 100% accuracy and traceability to an individual cow.
- Automated Downloads
Data downloads are effortlessly emailed to the herd test centre and data processing facility, reducing editing time and costs back at the herd test centre
- Software Flexibility
Customer specific functions can be added to the Data Handler for a solution tailored to your herd testing system.
- Printout and Soft Copy
Milking data can be printed out for the farmer at the end of a herd test, or alternatively, a soft copy on disc or memory stick can be left at the farm either printed directly from Data Handler or from your PC.
