A Tough-Enough UHF RFID Reader
The new 1166 Bluetooth Rugged UHF RFID reader from TSL 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 Class1 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
O/S Platform Independence
Use existing Bluetooth wireless technology enabled 1 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.
Transponder EPC readings can optionally be stored on the embedded Micro SD card, meaning that the 1166 UHF RFID Reader can be used independently of a host device. 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).
Speedy integration - ASCII 2 Protocol
The new TSL1166 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.
The latest release of the TSL UHF ASCII 2 Software Development Kit – for Android™ v1.4.0 provides classes to support configuration of a Reader’s Barcode Imager allowing developers to selectively adjust which symbologies are active and to configure other parameters such as valid code lengths or inclusion of check digits. A new ConfigureBarcode Sample Project has been added demonstrating the use of the new API. Additionally, all Sample Projects have been updated to improve the reader re-connection handling and provide better feedback as the process progresses.
