Check which frequencies a reader supports

If you're unsure about the frequencies your reader supports, you can find out using BALTECH ID-engine Explorer.

To check for a reader's supported frequencies:

  1. Connect the reader to your computer.

    I have an Ethernet reader.

    To work with BALTECH tools, an Ethernet reader must be unconfigured, or required permissions must be granted in PKI Authentication and Encryption settings.

  2. Open BALTECH ID-engine Explorer.
    If you haven't installed it yet, you can download it here as part of BALTECH ToolSuite.

Check the Supported RFID Interfaces info box:
