The BTG programming tool is designed to read and write both the RFT050 and RFT060 (current type) transponders.
The system uses a 134 kHz. programmable transponder, which is programmed with its exact position related to a chosen reference point. The transponder will be installed easily in the ground and works battery-less. The system charges a transponder within its measurement range, reads out its code and determines the position of the transponder under the system.
The programming tool is a robust small and light device and therefore it can easily be taken alongside a track. For only reading the transponder BTG has developed a smaller and more elementary device called the transponder reader.
