The recommended minimum horizontal mounting surface width is 7 1/2 inches. However, the unit can mount
on surfaces as narrow as 6 inches (in locations where unit overhang is not an issue). For vertical mounting
the unit can mount on a surface as small as 6 inches by 6 inches.
Mount the reader onto a permanent fixture, such as a wall or a shelf, where it is not disturbed, bumped, or
damaged. The recommended minimum clearance on all sides of the reader is five inches.
Use a level for precise vertical or horizontal mounting.
