You will get a lower resolution output from camera and lower accuracy level when using OCR software. The system will need 2 x USB2.0 ports to power the unit, instead of one USB3.0. USB2.0 Y-cable can be ordered separately from LVI (product code USB2.0-Y).
Yes, the system is module based and can be connected to a number of other LVI products.
