TSL 2128 Bluetooth UHF RFID Reader -

The 2128 UHF RFID Reader introduces the revolutionary, patented TSL® ePop-Loq® connector. The ePop-Loq® system allows data and charge connections to be passed from the reader to an attached device, such as a smartphone or handheld terminal.  The unique ePop-Loq® system is also designed to safely separate when the reader is subject to large impacts, such as when dropped.

ePop-Loq® is TSL’s latest and most fully featured device mounting system. A direct, wired USB connection is provided between the RFID Reader and mounted device*. A Bluetooth® wireless connection can still be used if preferred.

Features & Benefits:

  • Single Point Charge Solution - The 2128 Docking Station allows charging of both the 2128 UHF RFID Reader and a smartphone or handheld terminal attached via an ePop-Loq® mount.
  • Flexible Bluetooth® Connectivity - The 2128 supports both Bluetooth® Classic as well as Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE). The reader can be operated in Serial Port Profile (SPP) or Human Interface Device mode (HID), as well as supporting iApp2 for Apple iOS devices. The reader also supports an automatic re-connect mode for both Android and Apple devices.
  • Ultra Secure Data Gathering Option –  As the ePop-Loq® system provides a wired connection between the host device and RFID Reader, sensitive data can be given that extra level of security by avoiding the use of wireless data transfer. The 2128 supports batch data collection and is equipped with a Micro SD socket and a real time clock. Up to 500 million transponder EPCs can be stored on a 32GB Micro SD card (optional purchase).
  • Hardware Platform Independence - Operates with wide variety of Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled host devices from smartphones to tablets, laptops and desktop computers
