Power supply

When the reader switches on its antenna field, a steep rise of supply current occurs. If power supply or wiring gauge/length is inadequate, this rise may cause short voltage drops that may result in a power-on reset of the reader. To avoid this, please check the wiring gauge and characteristics of the power supply used.

The critical voltage drop is below 4.7 VDC.
