Comparison of Bluetooth® Operating Modes

26th January 2018

Our UHF RFID Bluetooth® readers support two modes of operation using Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. When connected via USB the reader always supports the TSL® ASCII 2 protocol, but when connected over Bluetooth® the reader can either be set to use the TSL® ASCII 2 protocol (Bluetooth® SPP Mode) or it can appear as a Bluetooth® keyboard (Bluetooth® HID Mode). The comparison chart in this article is designed to help you understand the differences between the two operating modes.

Information on enabling the Bluetooth® Auto-Reconnect Mode on iOS Devices.

This behaviour is off by default and is currently only applicable to iOS devices.
