RFID Tag Finder Android

Google Play StoreRFID Tag Finder will help you rapidly locate those hard to find tagged items. It is one of a series of apps designed for ASCII 2-compatible, Bluetooth® UHF readers from Technology Solutions (UK) Ltd.


What’s new in this version:

    • Tag Finder is now fully configurable so the asset locating operation can be fine-tuned to different environments. Default configurations are provided targeted to:
      • Long Range Seeking – detecting an asset from distance and ‘home-in’ to it.
      • Near Range Detection – a simple, positive indication only when the target is nearby.
    • Support for the 1153 Bluetooth┬« Wearable UHF RFID Reader.
    • Partial tag identifiers can now be of any length.
    • Performance improvements and bug fixes.


About RFID Tag Finder:

Using responsive, audible, signal-strength feedback and a dynamic graphical signal meter RFID Tag Finder allows you to rapidly sweep large areas and hone in on just the asset you are looking for. Alternatively, configure Tag Finder to only detect when the asset is very nearby – allowing rooms full of cages, boxes and racks to be rapidly and efficiently searched.┬áUsing the built-in, default configurations or a fully, user-specified operation, Tag Finder can be optimized for your asset environment.

RFID Tag Finder provides three search modes optimised for locating:

    • a unique tag identifier
    • an identifier matching a few tags
    • an identifier matching many tags


A useful, in-built tag scanning screen generates a list of nearby tags, ranked by signal strength to quickly provide a target identifier when demonstrating or familiarising yourself with the operation of the App.

RFID Tag Finder uses TSL’s sophisticated, parameterised, ASCII protocol which provides developers with a powerful set of commands to carry out complex UHF RFID transponder operations in a simple, easy to grasp way. Using these simple pre-configured ASCII commands, any TSL ASCII2-compatible UHF RFID reader can be rapidly integrated into applications resulting in un-paralleled levels of productivity.

Please note that to explore the full capabilities of RFID Tag Finder requires the TSL 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader or other TSL ASCII2-compatible UHF reader.
