High Performance Mobile UHF Reader
The new 1166 Bluetooth® Rugged UHF RFID Reader provides high performance UHF RFID reading/writing with all host devices in an ultra-tough and rugged form factor.
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 40 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.
Works with all software that has been developed for TSL Bluetooth® UHF RFID Readers.
Operates with Android, iOS, Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, Windows Mobile, Windows CE, and Windows Phone.
Docking Station (separate purchase) provides charging of the 1166 Reader and direct USB data connectivity with the embedded NAND storage card.
