HID: KTS readers operated in HID (keyboard emulation) mode are supported natively by common desktop and mobile operating systems. Additional drivers are not required for HID mode.
CDC: KTS readers operated in CDC mode require a driver in order to establish communication between the reader and the host computer.

KTS RFID USB readers are configured to HID mode per default. Prior to driver installation switch the reader to CDC mode using Tag2Image!

Firmware is the permanent, read-only software that runs on our RFID devices.
It is installed when the hardware is manufactured and can easily be updated by the end user.
KTS continuously maintains its firmware adding new features and squashing bugs.
