This snap-on peripheral provides the Motorola™ MC55, MC65 and MC67 with dual LF support at 125kHz and 134.2kHz. The LF RFID reader is powered from the Motorola terminal and houses both the RFID reader and the antenna. The Motorola MC55/65/67 retains the original laser bar code functionality as well as the original communications platform housed within the terminal. The reader remains compatible with existing MC55/65/67 accessories such as the single slot cradle and car charger.
The LF RFID reader provides the ability to read and write to a wide variety of manufacturer specific transponders including NXP (Philips) HITAG, EM Microelectronic and Texas Instruments.
Now also available for the US
Please note: Use of this snap-on with the MC65 requires OEM OS version 2.40.0211 or higher – please update terminal before using accessory.
