The new 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader is a compact, lightweight, high performance multifunction data collection device. It is designed to read and write to EPC Class 1 Gen 2 (ISO18000-6C) UHF transponders and communicate with a variety of host devices via Bluetooth® wireless technology. The RFID reader chipset is optimised for low power consumption whilst still providing excellent performance in a small and convenient form factor. The Wearable UHF RFID Reader includes class leading high performance 2D barcode data scanning to bring unparalleled data collection capabilities to connected devices.

The above Apps have been created by TSL® to demonstrate the performance, functionality and versatility of our Bluetooth® UHF RFID Readers. They also serve as demonstration of TSL’s powerful ASCII 2 Protocol. This sophisticated, parameterised protocol provides the developer with a powerful set of commands that carry out multiple actions locally within the reader. This approach enables multiple tag operations executed using simple pre-configured ASCII commands, which speeds up integration of the reader into applications. There are also an ever-increasing number of compatible Third-Party Apps available.
The 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader is compatible with Bluetooth® enabled host devices including enterprise handhelds, consumer phones, touchscreen MP3 players, tablets and PCs. The 1153 will bring UHF RFID scanning to devices running a broad range of Operating Systems including iOS, Android™ and Windows.
