2128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader with ePop-Loq®

Refined Design

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.

Single Point Charge Solution

TThe 2128 Docking Station allows charging of both the 2128 UHF RFID Reader and a smartphone or handheld terminal attached via an ePop-Loq® mount. This unique design can accommodate a wide range of devices from many handheld and smartphone manufacturers. The 2128 Docking Station Kit is supplied separately and includes the docking station, power supply unit and a USB data cable.

Powerful and Comprehensive Software Development Tools

Applications developed for the 1128, 2128, 2128P 1153, 1166 or 2166 UHF RFID Readers can easily be configured to work with the 2128, as all of these readers share TSL’s unique ‘ASCII 2 Protocol’. This sophisticated, parameterised set of commands carry out multiple actions locally within the reader. This approach enables multiple tag operations to be executed using simple pre-configured ASCII 2 commands which not only speeds integration of the reader into applications but also makes application development easier.

Flexible Bluetooth® Connectivity

The 2128P 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). This provides the ability to collect and log data even if USB or Bluetooth® communication channels are not available. Docking the 2128 then enables this data to be synchronised with a PC.
