    TSL® Reader Configuration

    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.


    Ultra Rugged Design

    Highly resistant to water, dust and mechanical trauma.

    Choose your Barcode Imager

    A range of optional barcode engines can be specified to provide 2D data capture at distances of up to 15m.

    Batch Mode Operation

    The 1166 can store over 250 million* transponder EPCs – date and time stamped by the on-board Real Time Clock. The internal storage can be directly  mounted in a Windows environment using the 1166 Docking Station Kit (separate purchase).

    All Day Scanning

    A high capacity battery enables non-stop operation of the reader over the full working day.

    Attach Smartphones or Handhelds

    Use standalone or devices can be mounted on top of the reader using an easy press-lock adapter to provide a one-piece solution.
