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.
Technology Solutions UHF RFID readers are primarily designed to be connected wirelessly using Bluetooth®. A Micro USB port is provided for charging and this can also be used instead of the wireless connection for data transfer.
