Looks to me like the only difference between both models is in their
certifications.  Maybe you want to take a look at the product page[1],
where the following information is given in the models listing:

G83-6744LUAGB-2 -> EMV 2000 Level 1

G83-6744LUZGB-2 -> EMV 2000 Level 1, Common Criteria EAL 3+
