Bluetooth LF/HF RFID Reader.

Product Rating
Product Overview

The 2173 is a Bluetooth wearable HF/LF RFID reader. Compatible with any Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet or enterprise mobile device, the 2173 adds RFID capture at the tips of your fingers. Being a wearable device, it's perfect for warehouses or environments where full use of both hands is required.

The 2173 Bluetooth LF/HF RFID Reader enables a Bluetooth host device to read and write to a wide variety of Low Frequency and High Frequency RFID transponders. The optional 2D Imager version can also capture 1D and 2D barcodes.

Scanned information can be 'typed' by the Reader into any application on the host device using the Bluetooth HID keyboard mode. Alternatively, the Reader can be commanded from an app on the host device. As the 2173 Reader uses the existing TSL ASCII 2 Protocol, developers can take advantage of the comprehensive, free SDKs provided by TSL to develop in Xamarin, Java, Objective C or .NET.

Multi-Band RFID Reading and Writing
Combined LF RFID, HF RFID and NFC reading and writing in an incredibly compact and lightweight device.

Supports multiple ISO industry standards including ISO15693, ISO14443(A/B) and ISO18092 ECMA-340 (NFC).

Batch Data Collection
Removable high capacity Micro SD data card and real time clock for extended batch data collection with time stamp independent of the host connection.

OS Independence
The reader is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows.

High Performance Barcode Scanning
Integrated 2D imaging engine provides class leading barcode scan performance via its unique patent pending fast pulse illumination which delivers outstanding motion tolerance and class leading 1D and 2D data capture.
