LID573 Series

LID573A small, portable reader with USB interface and a lot of possibilities!

The LID573 has the same features as the LID560 but has also an USB port for communication with a PC. Also the LID573-ISO/Multi versions can read the TI HDX transponders.

The LID573 uses USB to communicate to a PC. Optional a Infra-Red port (IrDa) is available for wireless communication.

Especially large amounts of data can be transferred more rapid, and due to the higher clock speed of the processor, searching data is done quicker.

The battery voltage is realtime measured and shown on the LCD


The LID573 can also be equiped, on request, with a Bluetooth module enabling wiresless communication. Information can be send to a PC, and the PC can write information back onto the LCD of the LID573 reader.

The LID573 has an expansion connector. In time boards for WiFi, Zigbee™, mass storage etc. might become available.
