UHF 1153 Handheld Reader

The new 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader is designed to read and write to EPC Class 1 Gen 2 (ISO18000-6C) UHF transponders and communicate with a variety of host devices via Bluetooth® wireless technology. The RFID reader chipset is optimized for low power consumption whilst still providing excellent performance in a small and convenient form factor.

This compact, wearable UHF reader is ideal for chute work and mid-range situations. The range can be easily adjusted through our FAST EID app for short range to isolate individual animals or powered up for a range of 6-8 feet. The sled UHF readers are recommended for longer range and large group situations.
