                The TSL Firmware Loader v 1.0.0 App will ensure that your TSL IH21 Reader firmware is fully up-to-date.

                The App has IH21 Updater v1.0.6 built-in, which contains:

                                Firmware update: v1.3.5

                                Bluetooth firmware update: v1.0.6

                The built-in update package allows you to update Readers even when an internet connection is unavailable.

                TSL Firmware Loader requires IH21 reader firmware 1.2.1 or greater. When upgrading from firmware versions below 1.2.1 we recommend that firmware is installed using the TSL PC Firmware Downloader v1.20.

                Note: with additional equipment, it is also possible to use TSL Firmware Loader to install the 1.2.1 firmware - see the Application Note - TSL Firmware Loader  for details of the procedure and equipment required.

                • RFID Explorer now has a Settings page. Use this page to change the Inventory Session and the display format (Hex/ASCII).
                • The Settings page also controls the new audio feedback with modes based on tag acquisition rate and for each unique tag seen.
                • The Reader connection behaviour has also changed so that, by default, the App will maintain the connection when in the background.
                • A Setting has also been added to prevent the Inventory screen display from sleeping.
                • Inventory results can now be saved to the device instead of being shared.
                • Performance has also been improved when in high density tag environments.
                • Minor bug fixes
                3.3.1

                This release provides support for using the built-in barcode scanner for Honeywell Android handheld devices such as the D75e, CT40, CT50, CT60 & EDA51. This feature uses the "Honeywell Android Data Collection Intent API" so may require an update to the Common_ES package on the device.

                Tags with an existing EPC over 256 bits long can now be encoded.

                  The v1.2 release of the TSL cross-platform, Xamarin SDK (for PCL-based projects) is now available. This release uses the Tsl.AsciiProtocol PCL library v1.3.6 (available via NuGet) which contains many new features including:

                  • Full support for ASCII Protocol 2.5 - including the new FindTagCommand to simplify the implementation of tag finding.
                  • USB support for UWP-based projects
                  • A new connection mechanism (AsciiTransportsManager) while retaining ReaderConnectionManager to maintain full backwards compatibility with existing projects.
                  • Sequencing of synchronously executed ExecuteCommand() calls to eliminate cross thread "Command is already executing" exceptions
                  • New Bluetooth pairing support via the BluetoothSecurity class
                  • HostBarcodeHandler a helper class to initiate a barcode scan on the terminal from reader trigger for supported terminals

                  The Sample Projects, in this release, have all been updated to demonstrate USB support for UWP Apps and fix minor bugs. The new, cross-platform, .NET Standard SDK will be released shortly and we recommend that it is used for all new projects.

                  2.0
                  December 20, 2018

                  v2.0

                  This is the first release of the unified Android SDK v2.0 that supports both ePop-Loq®/USB and Bluetooth® Readers.

                  The ReaderManager and Reader classes, introduced in the ePop-Loq SDK (v1.0.x), can now also handle Bluetooth® devices.

                  A new Sample Project, ReaderManager, has been created that showcases the new ReaderManager classes and the updated DeviceList Activity project.

                  All other Sample projects have been updated to use the new ReaderManager and DeviceList Activity project.

                  The ConfigureBarcode Sample project now displays a Code 128 barcode on the UI to aid testing.

                  March 5, 2018

                  TSL UHF ASCII 2.0 SDK v1.4.1 for iOS adds support for the 2128/IH21 reader and provides a popLoqMode parameter on the FactoryDefaultsCommand to allow changes to the mode of the ePop-Loq® connector on compatible devices.

                  Bug fixes:

                  All Sample projects have been updated to address a connection issue when switching Apps using the iOS task-switcher. This change moves the disconnection of the current Reader into the will ResignActive: method. We strongly recommend developers implement this approach to ensure multiple Apps can work effectively while sharing a single Reader.

                  See the included "Framework Version History.txt" file for additional release details.
