The automatic increment of VID numbers in a session is used to assign sequenced visual ID numbers to all animals that are being scanned for the first time. To use an automatic increment, manually enter the VID of the first animal in the usual manner. Provided that this VID ends with a numeric value, the next animal scanned will be assigned the next free VID value in the sequence. For example, the first animal is scanned and the tag number is manually entered “TAG001”.  When the next animal is scanned, the reader will automatically assign the next available tag number, “TAG002”, without you having to do a manual entry.
