Product Overview

Data Collection Performance Like No Other

TSLs new 1153 Bluetooth UHF RFID reader provides new levels of RFID performance. With its compact form factor, the 1153 performs like no other reader giving the user an extremely compact and lightweight multifunction data collection device. Designed to read and write to EPC Class 1 Gen 2 (ISO18000-6C) tags, the 1153 includes high performance 2D data scanning to bring unparalleled data collection capabilities to any host it is connected to. The Motorola SE4500 engine incorporates fast pulse illumination and fast sensor shutter speeds, delivering outstanding motion tolerance and class leading 1D and 2D data capture.

Platform Independent UHF RFID Reader

Use existing Bluetooth wireless technology enabled host devices including Enterprise Handhelds, Consumer Phones, Touchscreen MP3 players, Tablets and PC's - the 1153 will bring high performance RFID and 2D scanning to all these devices running a wide range of Operating Systems. The 1153 Bluetooth UHF RFID reader can also be tethered to a PC using a USB cable.

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

Integrate into Applications with Ease

The new 1153 Bluetooth UHF RFID reader incorporates TSL's unique ASCII 2 protocol for faster and easier application development. 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 to be 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 unparalleled levels of performance.

A Configuration To Suit Your Application

The choice of host device is yours - from low cost touchscreen MP3 players through to fully featured Enterprise Handheld Terminals. The choice of ergonomic style includes either a 'back of hand' mount or an arm mount option for scan intensive RFID and 2D bar code data collection applications.

EPC data can be stored on an optional MicroSD memory card (at least 25 million Transponder EPCs on a typical 2GB card) with date and time stamping. 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.
