Product description

The PICO Reader is basicly the same reader as the UNO LID 572 reader, it uses USB to communicate to a PC. The Infra-Red port is still available for
communication. Users that have written their own application for the LID571 can use the
LID572 without any modifications. The command summary for this reader is identical.

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 PICO reader 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 PICO reader reader. The PICO reader has an expansion connector. In time boards for ZigbeeTM, mass storage etc. might
become available.
