TSL 1166



A Tough-Enough UHF RFID Reader

TSL's new 1166 Bluetooth® Rugged UHF RFID reader provides high performance UHF RFID reading in a tough and rugged form factor. The reader is highly resistant to water, dust and mechanical trauma. A high capacity battery enables non-stop operation of the reader over the full working day. Designed to read and write to EPC Class 1 Gen 2 (ISO18000-6C) tags, the 1166 can also be configured with class leading high performance 2D data scanning to bring unparalleled data collection capabilities to any host it is connected to.

Platform Independence

Use existing Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled1 host devices including Enterprise Handhelds, Consumer Phones, Touchscreen MP3 players, Tablets and PC's - the 1166 will bring high performance RFID and 2D scanning to all these devices running a wide range of Operating Systems.

Extensive software support is available for a wide range of platforms including code samples, demonstration applications and source code.

Speedy integration - ASCII 2 Protocol

The new 1166 Rugged Bluetooth® UHF RFID reader incorporates TSL's unique ASCII protocol for faster and easier application development. This sophisticated parameterised ASCII protocol provides the developer 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 not only speeds integration of the reader into applications but also abstracts the developer from some of the complexities of the underlying Native API and ultimately results in un-paralleled levels of performance.

Customise Your Solution

The choice of host device is yours - from low cost touchscreen MP3 players through to fully featured Enterprise Handheld Terminals. Devices can be mounted on top of the reader using an elegant push-lock adapter, enabling a one-piece solution.EPC data can be stored on the on-board micro SD card (at least 25 million Transponder EPCs on a typical 2GB card). This allows logging of all transponder EPC readings and provides the ability to collect data even if USB or Bluetooth® communication channels are not available.
