The Bluetooth® module in some TSL® readers is able to present the reader to the host as an HID keyboard. In this mode the data read by the reader is sent to the host as if it were typed on the host’s keyboard.
Introduction Technology Solutions has implemented a common object model for Android, iOS, Windows Desktop, Windows Mobile and Windows Phone. This article is provided as an overview of using this obje...
It is often necessary to change the existing EPC of a tag to a new value to support either standards-based or custom encoding formats. This article provides examples of how to modify the EPC identifier using the TSL RFID Explorer App.
It is often necessary to change the existing EPC of a tag to a new value to support either standards-based or custom encoding formats. This article provides examples of how to modify the EPC identifier using the TSL ASCII 2 Protocol.
Locating individual assets or one instance of an asset of a particular type is a common problem in many environments such as Retail stores, tool stores or warehouses. This article provides advice on appropriate parameters in an ASCII 2 Inventory command to be used in the implementation of a “Tag Finder” operation.
Technology Solutions UHF RFID readers have the provision for a micro SD card to be installed. The card provides two functions: 1) – A log file is created and appended (when enabled) that contains all the output sent from the reader. 2) – An autorun file can be created that changes the reader’s configuration from its default as it powers on from sleep.
The aim of this article is to recap the behaviour and operation of UHF transponders with respect to selecting, reading and writing and to provide some examples of how to achieve this with the TSL® ASCII 2 Protocol.
TSL® Bluetooth® UHF RFID Readers can be operated in SPP mode where the Reader is controlled by a custom-written application, or in HID mode, where the Reader behaves like a Bluetooth® Keyboard. The Bluetooth® operating mode of a TSL® UHF RFID Reader can be changed using the steps detailed in this article.
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. A firmware change now allows for a reader, in SPP mode, to reverse the master/slave role, remember the last connection and attempt to reconnect automatically when it is powered-on. This behaviour is off by default and is currently only applicable to iOS devices.
