The new member of the Trovan® pocket reader family is the LID560 pocket reader. The dimensions of the LID560 are identical to the LID571 series. The LID560 does not support any kind of communication features. This is what differentiates this reader from the LID571.
The LID560 has a detachable pocket clip. The housing is made of two colours ABS
(squirrel grey/distant blue RAL7000/5023). The LID560 is activated by pressing the push button. If the button is pressed shortly the latest transponder number read is shown on the LCD. Is the button pressed for longer than 0.2 seconds, the reader starts scanning.
ID codes are shown on the 2 x 16 character display, which has back-lighting. If the battery voltage (Standard 9V Alkaline) drops below 7 Volts, the message ‘low battery’ is shown on the display (reading is still possible). If an ID-number was not in range of the reader during the activation period, the message ‘no code’ is shown on the display.
There are 2 types available:
(select ISO or MULTI before you add the item to your shopping cart)
- LID560-ISO: reads all common used transpondertypes including Trovan™ Unique & Flex, ISO FDX-B, Destron, AVID (fecava), ASK, PSK1 and PSK2 transponders.
- LID560-MULTI: reads the same types as the ISO version but can also read the AVID Encrypted tags (most used in the United States).
Certain types can be disabled or enabled by modifying the read list. The read list is opened by pressing the button 5x in a row. By selecting just the types that are actually used, the read speed increases.
To maximize the readers’ performance it is advisable only to enable the transponder-types you want to read.
For instance: if you only need to read Trovan Unique, ISO FDX-B and Fecava in your
application, then only enable these three transponder-types. These three types are then placed in a so-called “readlist”. Trovan Unique, ISO FDX-B and Fecava are selected as factory default.
ID codes are shown on the 2 x 16 character display, which has back lightning. If the battery voltage (Standard 9V Alkaline) drops below 7 Volts, the message ‘low battery’ is shown on the display (reading is still possible). If an ID-number was not in range of the reader during the activation period, the message ‘no code’ is shown on the display.Start reading
Pressing the push button activates the LID560. If the button is pressed shortly the latest transponder number read is shown on the LCD. If the button pressed longer than 0.2 seconds, the reader starts scanning.
The reader will read as long as you press the button.
If a tag is found, the code will be displayed on the LC-display.Edit readlist
If you want to edit the readlist you can access the readlist as follows:
1. Switch on the reader by shortly pressing the red button.
2. Press the button 5 times with a maximum interval of 300 milliseconds. Hold down the button after the fifth time (a long beep will sound).
3. Hold down the button for approximately 5 seconds, the reader will give another long
beep and the display will show "RELEASE BUTTON".
4. Now you have 4 seconds for each transponder type to activate it (push the button to add the transponder to the readlist). If you do not push the button within the 4
seconds the transponder type will not be added to the readlist. At the end of the
setup the reader will turn off, now the new settings are applied.Representation of ISO FDX-B code
There are 3 representations of the ISO FDX-B code that can be chosen by editing the

• DEC code (example: 968 000001855030)
• Using country codes (example: NL 000001855030)
