Product introduction


This product is designed to expand read/write operating functions of RFID tags for
PDAs, smartphones and other handheld devices. The RFID reader adopts Bluetooth
wireless data
transmission to transmit data with handheld devices, it can be plugged
into any PCs, PDAs or smartphones and other handheld devices with built
-
in
Bluetooth communication without the limitation of wired interface of the equipment.
Customizable one
-
touch sca
nning feature leads to fast and easy operation, suitable
for portable applications. This product fully offers RFID read/write capabilities on HF
RFID tags which comply with ISO 15693, ISO 18000
-
3, ISO 14443A/B/C and other
standard

protocols.

Charging



T

lithium polymer battery

which may be charged

t
hrough the USB
interface
of

a
PC. As long as the reader
is
connected to a PC through the Mini
USB cable, the
built

battery began to charge. W

PC as the charging power supply
er for the reader
,

you can purchase

a

USB charging adapter charger

of
DC5V specifications

with

the su
pply current
greater than 200mA.




Charging
time varies according to
the
battery status. I
t

s r
ecommended that the
battery

is
charg
ed without the reader in use, which is

to ensure that the battery
is in normal operation condition
.

I
t needs
close to 1 hour

to

fully charge the
battery.

Some Suggestions for Extending the Using Time o

B
uilt

in rechargeable polymer lithium
-
ion battery
,

the r
eader
may work for
8
hours

in
the normal state

with
a single charge. To enable
the r
eader work
better
continu
ously,

it is recommended to note the following

points:




W
hen
the r
eader

is

not in

use, switch off
the
reader power
.





As the Bluetooth communication consume
s

more power in network searching
state (the Bluetooth status indicator flashes) than
in

connect
ing

state (the
Bluetooth status indicator
keeps lighting
), it is recommended
to
open
the
Bluetooth bindings generated string mouth
on the
host

as soon as the

r
eader
power

is swithed
on,
which
allows the reader enter the Bluetooth connecti
ng

state with the host. I
n t
he
idle interval of
us
ing
,
if
it’
s
inconvenient
to switch
off
the
reader
po
wer, you can keep
the
reader

in
connect
ing state
,
which
is more
energy
-
efficient compared to disconnect the Bluetooth connection
.




W
hen the r
eader open
s

the
antenna RF field

and
operation
s

on
RFID tag
, it
produce
s

the greatest current consumption. Therefor
e
it is
recommended
to
close the antenna RF field
after
the operation
on

RFID tag each

time
,

which
makes
the

related

RFID

units

of the
eader into sleep
state
.
Some

function
s

provide
d by

t
h
is

r
eader SDK
can close RF field by themselves

after
operation
s.

T
he
operation
s

whithout
this
function can
call into the standby function

after it
is completed.

Further details can
refere

to SDK Programming Guide
.



Basic Modes of Operation on RFID Tag

when

the
button is pressed, the reader con

to wait for the operator

to

take it

near the electronic tag (RFID

.

W
hen
the r

,

the reader
continue

the implementation of
commands

and return

response data.


Note: In the waiting process, if
the reader receives
any serial data sent
from
the host,
it

two kinds of gripping methods,
"vertical grip

"
, may
be used as shown in the
following

.




In
the

"vertical grip

e,

the thumb can be used easily pressing "reader

"horizontal grip

ode,
the

middle finger can be used pressing "reader trigger button." on the side of the
fuselage
.




In general, the two kinds of grip

no difference in the use
.

I
n the
occasions
that the r

need
s

to be very close to the operated electronic tags,
" horizontal

grip

" approach
is
proposed.
