Product Description

The 2173 Bluetooth® HF/LF RFID Reader enables a compatible Bluetooth® host device to read and write a wide variety of HF and LF RFID transponders as well as capture 1D and 2D barcodes (imager version only). These can be typed 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 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.
