The smaXtec Classic Bolus is exclusively designed for cattle. Under no circumstances may it be used for any other animals or humans. The minimum body weight of cows receiving a bolus is 450 kg when administered by trained staff (approximately 18 months for Holstein cows) and 300 kg when administered under veterinary supervision. If in any doubt, please consult your vet.
Make absolutely sure that the bolus has been activated correctly. If activation was successful, the LED will blink to indicate that the bolus is ready for use. Under no circumstances should you administer the bolus if the blinking pattern is incorrect, as it will not measure any data. Once boluses are administered, they cannot be withdrawn and activated.
First, remove the label from the bottom of the smaXtec Classic Bolus. Next, activate the bolus using the magnet delivered with the smaXtec Base Station. Hold the magnet onto the marked point of the bolus. If the initialisation process starts, the LED begins flashing rapidly (every 0.5 seconds for a duration of 5 seconds).
If initalisation has been successfully completed, the LED lights up every two seconds for a period of 30 minutes.
If initialisation fails, the LED flashes very rapidly (every 100 milliseconds) for a period of 30 minutes. If this is the case, please contact customer support and do not administer the bolus.
After successful initialisation, smaXtec boli can be administered to animals using the smaXtec bolus applicator. Note the animal identification next to the serial number on the provided list or assign the bolus directly to an animal in the smaXtec App or Messenger. You can either create new animals or select from existing animals in the system (e.g. uploaded via animal importer).
Afterwards, you can administer the bolus. Ensure that only successfully initialised boluses are administered. After at least 30 minutes from bolus administration, you can access the first cow data in the smaXtec software.
