The smaXtec Classic Bolus SX.2 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.
Ensure that your smaXtec Base Station SX.2 is activated and ready for use before starting the bolus activation process.
First, remove the label from the bottom of the smaXtec Classic Bolus. Then, switch on the smaXtec Classic Bolus using the magnet delivered with the smaXtec Base Station.
The bolus starts the initialisation process. It lights up continuously for 13 to 26 seconds. If the bolus then blinks every two seconds, the process was successful.
If the bolus doesn’t show the indicated blinking pattern, ensure that you are within the read-out range of the smaXtec Base Station SX.2 and repeat the process once or twice. If it doesn’t work then, please get in touch with the smaXtec support. Do not administer the bolus to an animal in this case!
After switching on the bolus successfully, start with the second step of the activation process: Assigning the bolus to an animal. This can be done both in the smaXtec Messenger and the smaXtec App. You can either create a new animal in the system or assign the bolus to an existing animal (e.g. that was created upfront via the animal importer).
ATTENTION: The activation process is only completed after the bolus has been assigned to an animal. If the bolus is not assigned, no data or alerts will be generated or displayed.
After completing the activation process (switching on the bolus using the magnet and assigning it to an animal), administer the bolus on the same day with the smaXtec bolus applicator.
It takes at least 30 minutes after bolus administration until first cow data will be visible in the software.
