Every handheld reader has a 2 line LC-Display with 16 characters. The display has a backlight so it can be read in a dark environment. The housing is made of ABS, the pocket readers have a removable pocket clip and work on a standard 9V alkaline battery.
This reader has no communication port and no memory. It is intended for visual verification of the ISO FDX-B chipnumber.
The chipreader is activated by pushing the red button for longer than 2 seconds. When you push less then 2 seconds you will see the last transponder number again.
If the reader is 7 cm or shorter near a chip/transponder the code is shown in the display. You will get a warning if the battery voltage is below 7 volts, ' low battery ' appears on the display (scanning is then for a short time even possible). If no transponder is found the text 'no code' appears in the screen.
