Demonstration Software

Our ‘RFID Explorer’ App demonstrates the performance, functionality and versatility of the 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader. It also serves as demonstration of TSL’s powerful ASCII 2 protocol. It is currently available for Android™ and Windows Phone. RFID Explorer is available to download from the following locations:



Integrate With Ease

The 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable 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 speeds integration of the reader into applications.
