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

ID codes are shown on the 2 x 16 character display, which has backlighting. 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.

The LID562 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.
